Newly Updated Common Core Math Assessment Packs - and a Snow Day!

I'm linking up today with Fourth Grade Flipper's Tried it Tuesday, because we have another snow day so I'm 'trying' to update some of my TPT products.  It feels so good to have the gift of time to tackle a few items on the 'to do' list! (Also, she has an AWESOME give away going on over at her blog, if you have some extra snow day time - check it out!)

Don't ya love when you finally have some extra time to update some of those oldies but goodies in your TPT store?  That's what I spent most of yesterday doing (instead of grading papers - such a procrastinator!). I'm so excited about these updates, I can't wait to share them with you.

As you all know, we're in the middle of a 'snowpocalypse' here in Michigan. I didn't believe all the hype, but we do have 7 or so inches already and more is coming overnight.  Plus, we have record low temperatures on the way for Monday night  We've already gotten the 'snow day' call for tomorrow (which was supposed to be our first day back from break) woot woot!  Think we'll get Tuesday also?

This is turning into the longest break ever! We also started break early with a snow day.  Tomorrow is day 18 off from school.  Part of me is loving all of this extra time, but part of me is missing my kiddos.  We'll definitely be reviewing the first few days back after this long stretch of time off.

In preparation for reviewing, I've revamped my Common Core Math Assessment Packs.  Each pack contains daily formative assessment exit slips and weekly formative assessment quizzes.  Plus vocabulary cards, a review guide and summative unit assessment. I use the packs to guide and organize my unit instruction from start to finish. The assessments offer quick data to inform my teaching as well as grades for the grade book - which are always hard to come by within a workshop.  These packs are a life-saver when it comes to planning, informing your instruction and assessing!  I couldn't teach without them.
Between reviewing concepts with exit slips from my Assessment Packs, and the New Years Decimal Centers I have planned for the upcoming week - I definitely have my math plans complete for the first few weeks back.

Now on to reading and writing plans, but thanks to the 'snowpocalypse' I can wait until tomorrow to work on those!  

Who else has a snow day tomorrow?


  1. Sounds like you've been really busy! I'm in Indiana, and we're getting slammed by snow too. Snow day today!
    Good luck staying productive!


  2. I'm in Tennessee and we have a "snow" day... without the snow. That's ok. I could always use more time to work on my plans before we go back. Oh yeah, and those papers I still need to grade from the last week before break.

    1. Ya, I still have those papers to grade too...... :(

  3. Your assessment packs look amazing!! We have a snow day here today and had one Friday too (had school on Thursday and Monday). With all these days off, it makes getting back into the swing of things difficult. I just want to be lazy! haha! Thanks for linking up! :)
