I have been busy with several things…

**Place Value Cubes**

I have been making some new sets of place value cubes to start using with my kids this week. They are so easy to make and are a fabulous tool for independent practice use while meeting with guided math groups. The best part is that you can customize them for your students’ needs. ** Feel free to download my free directions for making the cubes!** You can make up your own activities, or you may like the ones I have listed in my **TpT store.**

**Low-Prep Halloween Math Games**

I shared this made-it in our previous post, but this is my newest math made-it. I just finished putting a Halloween spin on some math games I have used

in past years. These games are perfect for my kids’ independent practice

needs right now. Thanks to Krista Wallden for her spookly

clipart–so much FUN! You can check out the games in my **TpT store**, but you

can also enter to win one of three two copies! Good luck to you!

**Using Tens: Ten Frame Fact Cards**

These ten frame fact cards really help some of my kids visualize the using ten strategy of addition before transitioning to the use of fact cards with just numbers. **Download a free copy here!**

We hope you will consider joining us by linking up your math-made its!

Good day!

Did not seem to be a live link to the directions for the cubes or the 10 frames. Would love to download and use. Thanks for checking.

Sorry for the delay–I included a note at the start of my post about the difficulty I was having with my computer this a.m. and I was not home until late this evening. Everything is up and running now… Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for the tens frame fact cards. They will really help one of my struggling students. Love your ideas and it always seems I come away with a new great idea when I visit your site:) Thanks!

I am new to Guided Math and trying to find meaningful center activities for my students. I wouldn't really want to make some for just one season but you had me at No-Prep!

I have gotten away from so many seasonal things as well, but I couldn't resist tweaking the games I use with my kids for a Halloween theme. Krista Wallden's graphics made it easy! :0) Thanks for stopping by!

Love this giveaway! I am always looking for ways for my students to practice their math learning in fun ways. My students and I are loving guided math and the Powerpoint you offered recently has been a game changer! Thank you so much.
