Boot Camp Math!!

How many of you use AIMS Web Testing?  We have started using it this year and I was needing some easy assessments/interventions to use with my first graders.  This packet is easy to use and will help provide interventions to increase student's performance on AIMS web assessments as well as overall math fluency related to the common core. 

I would be curious to see, those of you that use it, what your thoughts or ideas are on AIMS Web.

Check out my "Boot Camp Math" intervention packet here!

I'm in love with polka dots!!!

I have purchased several center packets from some wonderful teacher friends (Erica Bohrer, Made for First GradeWhat the Teacher Wants, Deanna JumpCara Carroll) and was really needing to get them organized.  At the moment, they have been stashed all laminated, pretty, and cut out in my huge closet in my room.  But after making quite a few centers, I decided I need to get my organizing tail in gear.  So I created monthly labels to go with each month's centers.  Click here to download these for FREE!!  I will be posting pics later of how I used them to organize my centers by months.  I hope you are in LOVE with polka dots too!
