The Magical Product Swap Presents THE Katie King!

August 1, 2012

A little while ago, I joined Jessica’s product swap, and let me tell you… I was SO EXCITED when I got my partner 🙂

I got the one and only, KATIE KING!

Yes, that is right, Katie King, Queen of the First Grade Jungle!

I have been a follower (read:stalker) of her blog forever and she has the cutest ideas, the cutest classroom, AND can I say she also has the cutest kids?!?

She is seriously so sweet and has been such a great friend to this newbie blogger, I couldn’t be happier to feature her!

I had the hardest time choosing just ONE product from Katie’s store, but I ended up going with her Sporty Kids Math Packet:

This is a gigantic, 90 page packet FILLED with common core aligned math games!

Our district adopted Common Core last year and it was quite the jump from our old NV state standards – especially in math. I definitely welcomed the change because our state needs to get their butts in gear and become more competitive! However, I had to keep making game, after game, after game, because we didn’t have any resources for these much harder math standards!

Well, This packet is a HUGE resource and I have already sent along the link to my co-workers so they can get their butts in gear too! 😉

lemme show you the goods:

{Tennis Top-it}

 Umm, a little tennis court to play on with those cute tennis kiddos?!?!

{Even & Odd Sort Using 3 Addend Addition}

Students solve the 3 addend addition problem and then decide whether the sum is even or odd!
Then of, course they can sort the cards under those adorable goalie nets!

{Basketball Snack Stand Measurement}

Okay, this is one of my FAVES in this packet!! My students are going to loveeee running around the classroom measuring all sorts of items with cotton candy, soda, pretzels, ice cream! So perfect to keep the little ones engaged!

({On small side note: I estimated my kitty, Jarvis, is about 4 pizzas long.. when not being all fidgety.}


This game is so fun & I love that it has a 2 digit mat and a 3 digit mat! My little smarties can challenge themselves with the 3 digit comparisons while the rest of us focus on comparing 2 digit numbers 🙂

{Dancing Fact Families}

What about my little girly girls, you say?!? THIS!
This little activity has the students figure out the missing addend (or the sum) in these fact family cards and then they record each fact family in their Dancing Fact Families Book!

Math centers for the year: Check!

And this was only a snippet of what is in Katie’s amazing packet!
