Developing Proficiency with Addition Number Facts

Young students need to develop fluency with basic number facts to succeed in math. Lots of practice is needed! :)

Using a number chart or number table will help students develop proficiency and observe number patterns in math.

Here is an  Addition Table (that I quickly whipped up yesterday) with a fun autumn or fall theme that students can complete independently or with help. After completing the table they can identify and describe lots of patterns that they see with the numbers.

Fun with Homophones

Homophones (words that sound the same but have different meanings) can sometimes be a little tricky and confusing for kids.


Clip art by http://edu-clips.com/

Here are a few resources to help you teach kids about these words.

A fabulous picture book!

Dear Deer - A Book of Homophones by Gene Barretta



This book is great for kids in grades 1-3 and can even be used as a review for students in grades 4-5.

Some of the many homophones included are: ate and eight, tail and tale, see and sea, bear and bare, blew and blue, plus herd and heard.

The illustrations are fabulous! :)
