I just completed my multiplication posters for helping students to grasp this concept. These display posters feature kid-friendly graphics to illustrate your teaching on this topic. Great for enhancing your classroom, for general display, or as discussion prompts, this pack supports teaching the basics of the multiplication concept and strategies for young learners.
The pack includes:
General multiplication posters

I have already begun to claim my space in this world. How about you?
I am so excited about a recent project at our school that I just had to blog about it! Our mission was to use foil wrappers to make Christmas decorations. Yes, you heard right! Christmas decorations! At first, I thought that it would not at all be an attractive accomplishment. I thought that it would make the tree look a little too drab or boring but boy, was I wrong! As our school community came together to accomplish this feat, there was an added sense of relief for me and a great sense of pride. The tree turned out pretty FABULOUS! We made angels, 3D balls, 3D stars and lots of fan bows! This made me realize how much money can be saved on decorations if we turn discarded items into a functional item. Take a look at what we did! Wow! Totally, amazing!
Teaching map skills to young students may seem daunting especially when you think about the difficult terms and vocabulary. I find it very helpful to use stories which help students to visualize the concepts and bring a fun and interesting spin to the content. In a recent search, I found these titles that can assist both you and your students when teaching map skills to young students.

These are a few of the many titles that are great for teaching young children about maps and globes.
Making inferences is a higher-order thinking skill that may seem difficult for many students. However, my purpose today is to show you how easy it can be taught and how much fun your students can have by using their power of observation. Essentially, students learn best when they are given "real-world" examples to make inferences.
What is an inference?An inference is an educated guess or a conclusion about what is happening that is drawn from evidence and reasoning. The viewer or reader uses his knowledge and information come up with one or more possible reasons for a particular event. In many cases, the conclusion may not be accurate, however, the power of reasoning can be used convincingly. For example, take a look at picture A.
OBSERVATION: The rose is wet.
POSSIBLE INFERENCES: (1)Rain fell.
(2) It is morning dew.
(3) The sprinkler was on.
All these conclusions are based on both reasoning and background knowledge. The true answer may not be know as to why the rose is really wet, however, the list of possible inferences are good answers.
Let's take a look at another picture.
OBSERVATION: The girl is getting her face painted. POSSIBLE INFERENCES: (1) She's at a birthday party. (2) She's an actress.
Any of these inferences can be true but it is the viewer's responsibility to give a good reason for his answer. Without the reasoning many readers can be lost or may challenge the inferences.
Resources for Teaching Inference to Young Viewers
I created a set of printables for students who need some extra practice with this skill. They are asked to look at a picture and use their experience along with details from the pictures to make an 'educated guess'. This is a great set for budding readers for building reading comprehension skills.
Also here's a list of suggested titles that can be used to teach inference.
Some students either fail to answer written questions or give shallow responses that lack details. Many even go off topic which is a clear indication that they did not understand what the question was asking. To help alleviate this problem experts suggest using a targeted strategy such as RACE and RACES. These simple mnemonic devices can help students to remember the essential parts of a strong answer.
Each resource set contains the following:
1 full colored general RACE/S poster (with border) 1 full colored general RACE/S poster (without border) 1 black and white version 1 full colored RACE/S poster with detailed outline (with border) 1 full colored RACE/S poster with detailed outline (without border) 1 black and white version 1 set of 3 colored bookmarks with detailed outline
I created these for students who need visual references when writing. These posters and bookmarks are recommended for older students but can be used with the lower classes with teacher support.

I came across this easy way to teach mental addition that I just had to blog about it! It is super easy to follow simply because it makes you start with the larger place value and flows from left to right (coincidentally it's also called the left to right addition). Here's how we do this with three digit numbers:
First, add the hundreds, then add the tens and last the ones. Next add these sums together.
Here's a link to some fascinating videos that explain this mental strategy:
