Flip Flop Blog Hop

I am really excited about this blog hop. This month we are reviewing products from other bloggers. I am happy to be paired up with Latoya from Flying into First Grade.

Today I am reviewing her Common Core Math Printables.
Click here to go to her TpT store.

I have to admit that when I received this product, I started laughing. Not because of her product, but because I had just finished a very similar product and posted it on TpT one week prior to this. I would love to say great minds think alike, but this might be more of a case of all first grade teachers have some of the same needs wherever you teach. Latoya took each of the CCSS for math in first grade and created no prep printable pages to use with your students. There are 50 different pages included with at least one for each of the first grade standards.

I picked out 7 different pages to try with my students. These really are no prep. Some pages needed only a pencil and others required scissors and glue but there's nothing that needs teacher preparation. Can I just say thank you! Sometimes you just need something that doesn't require a lot of work to get ready. All of her pages look great and are labeled with the standard on each page. These didn't even require any thinking on my part. Here are examples from the pages I had my students do:

 Now I know that I mentioned earlier that our products were similar, but I have to admit that it was fun to see someone else's ideas of how students can "Show What You Know" for each of the math standards. Latoya did a great job of coming up with ways for students to practice each standard. I love that her pages have cut and paste activities that are perfect for independent practice during my math workshop. As it turns out our products were more complementary than I first anticipated. I will definitely be adding her Show What You Know pages into my curriculum for next year.

Since our products go so well together, I think I better raffle off my 54 First Grade Common Core Math Assessments.
