Mathfacts made fun!

Motivate your students to learn their math facts with Kicking It! Math – A program for increasing math facts fluency 


Want to get your students excited about learning their multiplication facts? Try this fun karate/martial arts incentive program with your class! I’ve been using this program with my students and have found it to be a very successful and motivating way for my students to learn/memorize their multiplication facts. It only takes about 5-10 minutes a day to incorporate in your math block and your students will be begging to take timed tests each day to pass to the next level and earn their black belt in multiplication!

The program works with brain research and introduces only a few new facts each day. It engages both written and oral practice at school and at home. As students pass levels, they earn new colored “belts” on their way towards earning a black belt.



Daily Math Review Spiral MathReview

In what ways are you helping students to retain math concepts and skills they have been previously taught?

What additional opportunities for instruction are you providing your struggling learners?

I have been using Daily Math Review in my classroom for the past five years, and I have to say that it has had the biggest impact on my math instruction by far!

This resource includes 36 weeks of daily math review for fourth graders. Included in each week are 5 problems for each day Monday - Thursday with a weekly quiz that includes 2 of each problem types for a total of 10 problems.

In addition to the already prepared math review pages, I have also included a fully editable version of the pages in PowerPoint so that you can customize to meet your students' needs.

The Best Back-to-School Blog Posts

Back to School Season is fast approaching!  I know, I know, I'm trying to avoid thinking about it too, but it is so much easier if we are prepared ahead of time!

I have plenty of things to share with you the next few weeks to help make Back to School a little easier!  Today I am sharing a collection of blog posts from some of my teaching friends that will set you up for back-to-school success. There's something for everyone PreK - middle school! So without further ado, here are a few of my favorite teacher blog posts (labeled by grade) to help set you up for success in the coming school year!


K - 6th Grade




Start the School Year Off Right! will help you get ready for the busy season.  My friend, Melissa Bonito from Peas in a Pod offers some great tips and tricks to help set the stage for a smooth school year. You won't want to miss her top 5 back to school tips, and how she goes about teaching classroom procedures!  That's ALWAYS the tricky part!


2nd - 5th Grade




I am all about building student relationships and I have shared compliments with my students right on the door so it is the first thing they see each day for several years during Valentine's Day.  My students LOVE it and so many of yours do as well!  This year, I decided to implement this idea EVERY month.  My first month I will share why My Students Are Amazing, on adorable apple templates.  Hint**There's a freebie in this post so you can do this with your students as well!

K - Middle School




In Organize & Transform Your Classroom, Suzy Memeo from StudentSavvy offers some awesome tips for creating a space that makes you happy! Since our classrooms are truly our homes away from home, this is SO IMPORTANT! She will guide you as you come up with your plan, locate the problem areas in your classroom, and tackle them. Her classroom designs are a must see!


Prek - 3rd Grade




The BEST way to improve student reading performance is to make sure that they are reading!  Read all about creating a life long love for reading within each of our students in My Favorite Way to Increase Reading Engagement by Paula Beckerman from Paula's Primary Classroom. She says, "After 25 years of teaching early childhood, I haven't found any magic tricks that always work for everyone, each child is unique after all!  There is, however, something that has served me incredibly well, year after year." Find out what it is HERE!  Also, you should check out her Facebook page where she shares so many other great tips and strategies for primary teachers (and parents of students in this age range as well)!  On a random side note, her Australian accent is adorable!

1st - 8th Grade




Classroom Management - It will either be the case of you sinking or swimming during the school year!  If you don't accomplish anything else during the first weeks of school but to have control of your class, then you have done a good job! Read more about how Kathleen Guleksen, from A Plus Kids, does just that!



Thanks for checking out the list of our favorite back-to-school posts. We'd love to hear your tips for a smooth year in the comments below!

My Students Are Amazing Back to School Door Decoration


Every Valentine's Day, I decorate my classroom door with Reasons Why I Love My Class.  My class is always so excited to read each of the new reasons as I post a new one each day.  I shared this freebie, so that your students could enjoy them as much as mine did.  Several of you asked for me to make them for ALL of the months.  So, that is what I am working on now!  Here is the classroom door display for September (Back to School Apples)!



This post contains affiliate links. I earn a small commission each time someone makes a purchase using one of my links, which helps to support the blog.  All opinions are my own and I only promote brands and products that I have used myself and truly love. 

I made a sign that said My Students Are Awesome.  Then I printed an apple template on several pieces of card stock and cut them out (I printed on red, yellow, and green card stock since those are the colors of apples).  I wrote various reasons why my class is amazing including:


They are smart.
They are kind.
They always try their best.

On the first day of school, I will hang up the My Students Are Awesome sign and the first apple.  Each day of the month I will hang up a new apple.




In addition to the My Students Are Awesome signs, I also created grade specific signs as well (K- 6th are included in the freebie).  Here is the 4th Graders are Awesome sign:




I also have two different font choices available to best suit your students!

I have made a freebie for you just in case you wanted to try this project out with your own students.  You can download it here.  

My Students Are Amazing Back to School Door Decoration

Here are the other monthly versions that are already completed.  Check back for new postings each month!


If you decide to do this project, I would love to see pictures!  Please email me at kellys3ps@sbcglobal.net or tag me on InstagramFacebook, or Twitter!
