Create Your Own Math Homework

Hello friends! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you with the math homeworks - I was crazy busy at the end of this week making sure everything was ready for this week's tests, and then yesterday I got some not so great news, and that kinda threw me for a loop. Then this morning I ran an 8K race (and in under an hour, I was very happy with myself!), but I am exhausted because of it (I actually have had a headache for most of the day - I hope it's not running related, because it's feeling really good to get back in the habit of running).

 Anyway, I went ahead and uploaded the homework packs to Google Docs as Word documents instead of PDFs (links below; example problem above) so that way y'all can download them and edit them how you need. Y'all are already going to have to do a bit of editing because of the dates on each homework set, but hopefully you won't have to change too much. Again, these homework questions are geared towards the skills and standards for third graders in Texas, but I think they should work for most any third graders (and, with some tweaking, could also work well for other grades!). If you end up using this for homework or otherwise, please let me know by leaving a comment! It really does give me a thrill every time I see via comments and blog posts that someone has used something I've created. I've been seeing my font pop up on lots of people's creations recently (it was especially shocking/surprising/amazing to stumble upon it when I clicked on this link via Joanna Goddard's blog, A Cup of Jo, because her blog has a HUGE following and has nothing to do with teaching), and it absolutely blows my mind that nearly 13,000 people have downloaded my font from dafont.com - I honestly thought when I posted/shared it that only my teacher friends and followers would have any use for it. Crazy to think that many people are using my handwriting to create things - it really boggles my mind!!

Our third graders will be hard at work on their reading and math state tests this Tuesday and Wednesday, and then I'm leaving right after school on Thursday to head to New Orleans with my boyfriend for a wedding. I hope to share some of the things we did to review and prep for our STAAR test before I go out of town, because as tired as I was last week, I'm really pleased how everything turned out. Have a great week, y'all!

  4. I absolutely love this! This is a great idea for those days when the copy machine breaks or I forget about making the copies of homework! I can just print a few sets out at the beginning of the year and have them as backup!

    Thanks for the ideas.
