Winter Math Packet

It's Sunday again, which means time to get back in to "go mode". Sunday has always been my day of preparation for the week and today will be no exception if I ever finish scoring DRA's! Last week was a short week for us with only three days of school and I always feel better when I have a full week ahead. It's so much easier to be in a routine when you have five days for it!

Before I begin my Sunday grading, planning, and creating, I thought I would share a new item that I created. In the fall, I created a fall word problem packet that people scooped up so I decided that it was time for a winter word problem packet. My packet includes a problem-solving words list, 6 problems for guided practice, a step-by-step for students to create their own word problem, a 2-page homework practice with 2 problems to solve step-by-step and then 1 problem to create, and three additional pages of practice for a total of 12 additional word problems. I worked hard to include each of the operations and to be sure that fractions, decimals, and time were included too. This is definitely an intermediate packet that could be used with 4th, 5th, and low 6th. 

I love to create items and I am feeling really good about this creation. I posted it two days ago and it's already been purchased 3 times so I hope that that is an indication that other teachers will find it a useful resource in their classroom too! 

Now I realize that I have some followers in Australia and it's summer there! Not to worry, I am going to make the spring packet my next project and have it done in the next week with any luck! 

Wishing all of my followers a wonderful week! I'm hoping it's a quick one because my husband will be home two weeks from tomorrow and after 8 months apart, I am so ready for him to be home!
