In 1st grade, students should be able to tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.

By the end of 3rd grade, students should be able to tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. They should also be able to add time correctly, for example if given a clock that shows it is 5pm and they are asked to add four hours and 16 minutes, they can do it!

2nd Grade, Math, Math Skills Review

Identifying Even and Odd Numbers takes practice!

For older students and adults, it’s really easy to identify whether a number is even or odd, but for 1st – 3rd graders, it can require practice!

Yes, we can tell students that if a number ‘ends in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8’ it is an even number. We can also tell them that all other numbers (ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9) are odd numbers. We can also display posters to help them such as Math Posters | Even – Odd Numbers but students still require practice!

That’s why My Teaching Library has created….Even and Odd Numbers

This resource will give students the practice they need to identify even and odd numbers! It includes 18 worksheets that progressively include higher numbers to really help students solidify their understanding.

Includes:

  • – 4 worksheets (#’s to 20) w/ pictures: Students are to count and write how many, then create pairs (to determine if the number is even or odd) and then will circle even or odd.
  • – 3 worksheets (#’s to 20) for students to identify odd numbers (given a sets of  6 numbers, they will circle every odd number)
  • – 3 worksheets (#’s to 20) for students to identify even numbers (given a sets of  6 numbers, they will circle every even number)
  • – 2 worksheets (#’s to 20) for students to identify both even and odd numbers (given a sets of  4 numbers, they will circle every even or odd number based on instructions given)
  • – 4 worksheets (#’s to 50) for students to identify both even and odd numbers (given a sets of  4 numbers, they will circle every even or odd number based on instructions given)
  • – 2 worksheets (#’s to 120) for students to identify both even and odd numbers (given a sets of  3 numbers, they will circle every even or odd number based on instructions given)
  • – Answer Keys

Although 2nd grade skills require that students can identify even and odd numbers through 20, it is easy for them to go beyond twenty using this resource and the concepts they learn! Perfect to pair with Math Posters | Even – Odd Numbers

Addition and Subtraction with Blocks | Sums – Minuends to 20

In 1st grade and again at the beginning of the 2nd grades, students are expected to add and subtract with sum and minuends to 20. To help students gain insightful understanding (and not just facts), the use of blocks to help them visualize the addition and subtraction problems is very beneficial. My Teaching Library has a 10 page pdf (download, print and use) workbook to help students gain the practice and understanding they need for this skill…

This workbook includes:

  • 5 addition worksheets each including 12 problems to solve with visual blocks plus one addition problem for students to solve without blocks. For this final problem, students are asked to draw blocks to show their understanding.
  • 5 subtraction worksheets each including 12 problems to solve with visual blocks plus one subtraction problem where students are to label the minuend and the subtrahend.

1st, 2nd Grade, Geography, Kindergarten

Geography for K-2nd Grades!

Let’s face it, early learners need a fun way to learn about geography! Years and years ago, I was a public school teacher before becoming a homeschooling parent. In ps, I taught 1st – 5th. As a homeschooling parent I taught all the way PreK-12th!

When we are teaching littles, here I’m talking K-2nd, it isn’t to early to begin our introduction of geography but it isn’t always easy to do. In my personal experience, giving them ‘projects’ to create something along side using a globe and perhaps recipes to create is always a hit!

That’s why My Teaching Library has created several mini-book projects to teach about many different countries! Early learners LOVE creating (and keeping to read again and again) these little minibooks. Plus, when you use these in conjunction with a globe and perhaps cooking activities or allow what is being learned to guide further research and projects, they won’t even realize they are learning!

Here are some of the resources that are ready to download and use on My Teaching Library…

Costa Rica Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Panama Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Nicaragua Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Guatemala Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

El Salvador Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Venezuela Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Peru Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Colombia Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Brazil Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Bolivia Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Argentina Country Study Minibook for Early Learners

Do one a week or one a month based on what you believe works best for your little! Also, My Teaching Library will be continuing to add NEW country study minibooks.

One of the best ways to be notified when a new one is available is to join the My Teaching Library FB group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/MyTeachingLibrary) or become a newsletter subscriber (https://myteachinglibrary.com/newsletter-signup/) !
