Free Situational Math Problem For Cycle 1 Grades k to 2

 Free Situational Math Problem

Follows the Quebec Competency for mathematics: Solve a situational problem related to mathematics (but can be used by anyone for some math fun!)

Want more situational math problems? Check out my Math Freebies page here! I will be adding more soon!

Have you ever tried to solve a situational math problem with your learners? It can be a really fun way to put math skills into practice using real-life-like situations. Where we live in Quebec, they are a required part of the math curriculum for both public school and homeschooled kids. However, I find them to be a great way to see how much my kids have retained of what we've learned in math.

I especially love making them fun-looking and interactive for kids, not just writing down problems on paper. That is why I am so excited to bring you this new freebie problem for grades 1-2. It's simple, fun (it's mainly coloring!) and includes an answer sheet for parents too! If you haven't seen my other grade 1-2 problem, you can download it here.

In this problem, kids will be designing a basket. They will use organizational skills to organize information in the problem, patterning skills, and prepositional skills. They will also need to fill in some information into a simple table.

There are also plenty of fun pictures for kids to color in. You can take a few days to complete this problem, with younger learners especially! It will give them an opportunity to understand all of the information and give them a chance to colour in math class - that's always fun!

You can download this freebie below. All I ask is that when sharing this resource you share the link to this page and NOT the google drive link - that can really mess things up on my end! Thank you and ENJOY!

French Verb Freebie Unit: Avoir in the Present Tense For All Ages

Free French Verb Unit: Avoir in the Present Tense
Here is another great FREE French unit for you to use with your learners! You can see all of the other great free units on this page.

If you are trying to teach the verb avoir (to have) to your learners or class, then this unit is the perfect fit! It includes plenty of practice on using the verb in the present tense along with optional conjugation worksheets that more advanced students can use to conjugate the verb in other tenses too!

The mini book is a great way to introduce the verb. Just like my other French verb units, the mini book can be printed and made into a book, or displayed on a screen - your tablet, computer, or TV! It features simple sentences using avoir in the present tense with fun, full-colour photos on every page. It also has a super cute cover.

The verb cards are a great way to have learners practice speaking or writing sentences independently, or if you're teaching a class, to send home with them. I love to print these on coloured cardstock and put them onto a binder ring. That way, as we learn new verbs we can add them on too. All of my free verb units feature these cards.

Finally, there are a few options in worksheets that will suit many different ages and learning styles. There are fun coloring pages with questions prompting kids to use the verb in a sentence, there is a simple coloring page where younger level learners can draw their sentences and say them out loud, and there are conjugation pages that higher level learners can use to conjugate the verb in any tense. 

In this unit, I have also included some sentence prompts that kids can use in their notebooks. Just cut them out and glue one into a notebook page and they can answer the question using the verb.
