Happy Fall Sale and NEW PRODUCT {giveaway}

Happy weekend everyone!
This is just a quick post to let you know that there is a fun blog hop sale starting at midnight through Sunday!  Thanks to Casey at Second Grade Math Manic for hosting!

I wanted to share my newest product.  It's a pretty sweet one that I have just starting doing and have had GREAT success so far!  It's...
click to see! 
I created this product this year for 3 reasons:
1.My students struggle with reading and solving word problems (especially multi-step.)
2.Our math block was increased to 60 minutes and I wanted something that I could start off with everyday and that was meaningful for all.
3.With the new Common Core, I wanted a push for higher level thinking! 
These problems are designed for second graders but could be used to challenge some first graders or be an intervention for third.  They align with the Common Core standard:
2.OA.1- Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g. by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Here are some samples:

It's amazing what you can get second graders to do with some modeling!  The word problems progressively get harder and there's a great poster included to help the children (and you!) through the word problem process!
If you don't have a notebook for the children to work in, I've included several math journal templates for you to choose from! Yippee!
And yes you guessed it, I'm giving one away! I will be randomly drawing a name from the comments below at NOON Saturday so you have to act fast!!!

  6. Thank you for sharing the products. I always wanted to know if many people buying them. Sorry if I sound rude. I am simply curious. I am a student and know that many students are OK to buy college essay online. So, I wonder if teachers are OK to buy stuff. I know that these things can hardly be compared in the end of the day. But still… I see many blogs by teachers who sell different things. I guess it is like a hobby or something. Thank you for the blog post.
