Monday Math Freebie - Oldies But Goodies

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday
I've only participated in Manic Monday at Classroom Freebies a few times, so that means I have lots of freebies folks may not have seen before. I'm highlighting a few of those today.

Addition Fact Strategies - I have created a packet with two versions of a chart for students to track their progress in mastering addition facts by the strategy used. You'll also find an explanation for each of the strategies presented. They are arranged in the order I generally teach these facts/strategies to students. Here's the page on my favorite strategy, "two apart."

Phases of Matter Sort - They might be called "states" of matter in your text or curriculum standards, but in the newest revision of our standards, "states" of matter was replaced with phases. If you want a copy with the word states, shoot me an e-mail and I'll send you one!

Steal the Treasure! - This game is based on a game called Walk the Plank that Aimee of Primarily Speaking wrote about. I got her permission to adapt it, so I have both an addition and multiplication version of the game. Each file comes with teacher directions, student directions, and three different game boards. The addition version is shown below.

Everything on my site is free, so if you're looking for more freebies, try these links.

I hope you get a chance to use these resources in your home or classroom. Please let me know if you try them and how they work! 


  1. I love your strategies! I love, love math games! I love literature so much--and I love using it to teach that I can't wait to read more of your blog. I just added myself to your email list!
