Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up number sense! In this project, students will work in teams to investigate the culprit of six fictional thefts. The criminal has left six messages, layered with algebra. Teams will work to build a case and present their findings to the court. Hopefully they are convincing enough to win the verdict.
I like to use these puzzles as review before the unit test. The puzzle solving hook causes many different students to engage in solving traditionally mundane problems. Be the cool teacher :-)

Now that using a protractor is a Common Core skill for 4th grade, here is a little freebie to help your students, (and maybe you too, if it has been a while since you've had to use one!)
You get a large version of the poster which can be projected on your interactive white board or printed out poster-sized. There is also a page with a smaller version, which is great to print out for students to glue into their math notebooks.

Students love Footloose! It's a great way to review concepts AND keep students moving and engaged at the same time. Order of Operations Footloose includes 30 cards, each of which has an order of operations problem to solve. Some of these problems do include parentheses and exponents. Students solve every problem and record their answers in the corresponding box on the Footloose grid that they each receive.
This activity includes the Footloose grid, 30 cards (a set with polka dot background and a set without background - SAME set, just the option of a background for you when you print them), an answer key and directions. I would recommend copying the 30 cards onto cardstock and/or laminating them.

This freebie is just too good not to share! When quizzing multiplication facts, I used to have to have a million copies on hand. Some of my students would be testing on 3's, others on 4's, and some on 10's. It was just a nightmare trying to keep all those copies and tests straight. This has saved my life! Now I have ONE test.
There are two quizzes included- one with facts 0-10 and the other with facts 1-12. This will help you differentiate for all of your students at the same time because the test can assess ANY multiplication facts. :)

My Daily Math Review is a great way to make sure your students are getting daily spiral review of all 2nd grade math concepts so that they can really master those standards and score high on state tests! I created this because our math program was severely lacking a way to continually review concepts that had already been taught. I also did not like the way we had to wait until a few weeks before state testing to introduce brand new concepts like fractions or multiplication. I have been using this with my students for 10 years, and would not teach math without it! With this product, you will not only review things already taught, you will also slowly preview skills to come so that when you get to those chapters...it's a breeze because the kids have already seen it several times!

Are your students having a difficult time with counting coins? The Magic Money method has worked for me for the last 9 years of teaching money to 1st and 2nd graders. This download includes:
- a chart that students might place in their homework/classroom folders with realistic, dual-sided pictures of each coin, coin values, a chant for each coin, and the placement of the dots that will aid them in counting the coins.
- a one-sheet parent explanation of how the Magic Money system works, and how to use it to help their child become successful at counting coins at home
- a hundred chart that specifically aids children in becoming fluent at counting by 5's (a necessary sub-skill for using this method)
-a coin counting worksheet sample with answer key
-a sample word problem page
This method will work for the vast majority of your students. Don't worry about them relying on the dots. With time, they will begin to chunk larger values together until they are counting coins in a more traditional way.
