The beginning of the year is such a fun and exciting time. Our classrooms are looking amazing, and we are eagerly waiting for the chance to meet our new students. Once school begins there are so many things to do. We need to get our kiddos settled and establish rules and procedures. Not to mention the TON of paperwork to complete. Plus, we need to begin assessing our students and reviewing last year's skills and concepts. Phew! I'm tired just thinking about it! I hope I can make your life a little bit easier with these math fun for second grade back to school ideas.

## Back to School Fun

Your students will be bright eyed and bushy tailed during those first few weeks of school. This is such a perfect opportunity to assess their knowledge and get some base line data on where you need to begin teaching. Of course you need to begin with reviewing first grade math skills. The Summer Slide is a real thing and most of your students probably haven't done any type of work for a couple of months.

What's the best way to do this? I designed the perfect resources for all of your math back to school needs. The best part? They are all included in this

**Back to School Worksheets Bundle**! The resources include all of the first grade math standards in:

- Operations and Algebraic Thinking
- Number and Operations in Base Ten
- Measurement and Data
- Geometry

Each of those broad categories is a unit in this first-grade math review resource bundle. This makes it super easy for you to find what you need at all times. Mix it up or do a focused review on one strand at a time. It's also really easy to see related skills together and choose the review activities that your students really need.

## How Should I Use the Resources in My Classroom?

I always teach using the "guided math" approach. My math block begins with whole group instruction. This is when I introduce new ideas and review spiral concepts. Then we go into guided practice in small groups. This is where I devote most of my math instructional minutes. Finally, we head into independent practice or small groups for intervention.

So, as you can imagine these resources are geared towards this approach. There are tons of guided practice pages on each topic that can be used for small group work or intervention. There are also lots of independent practice pages. These have less graphics on them for easier printing.

The activities give students tons of practice with all of the required skills and allow a rigorous path which leads them into the next level of learning.

## What's Included in this Back to School Math Bundle?

### Teaching Tools

Remember each resource covers a math standard. You'll get a colorful teaching poster that is perfect to display on your whiteboard for student reference. They are also great to use as teaching guides during small group instruction and intervention. They are the perfect "cheat sheets" to remind students of what they learned the previous year.

### Student Practice Sheets

Each resource standard includes two different student practice sheets. There are many ways to use these worksheets such as whole group instruction, independent practice, morning work, small group instruction, intervention, or even homework. You'll also get a printable and digital version!

The digital version makes this resource a great tool for distance learning. The activities are all colorful and interactive so that your students will enjoy the lessons without even knowing how hard they are working. Just choose the option that works best for your class. Remember to mix it up often to keep your students actively engaged!

### Differentiation Made Easy

All of your bases are covered with this resource bundle. Because it covers every.single.standard you can be sure your students will have a quality review to build on. As you see struggles or holes in student learning you can easily pull practice activities to target that specific skill. This also allows you to be able to individualize instruction. You can assign practice to your students based on the skills that THEY need to master. This allows you to continue to challenge your students without frustrating them.
