Winter Freebie Ebooks…A Holiday Gift!

Written by Donna Boucher

Donna has been a teacher, math instructional coach, interventionist, and curriculum coordinator. A frequent speaker at state and national conferences, she shares her love for math with a worldwide audience through her website, Math Coach’s Corner. Donna is also the co-author of Guided Math Workshop.

Again this year, Teachers Pay Teachers has sponsored their Winter Holidays Tips & Freebies ebooks!  This annual Christmas present has grown from one book with 50 pages (and freebies!) to FIVE books for separate grade bands containing over 200 pages.

For those of you not familiar with the format of the ebooks, each page contains a holiday tip and a link to a freebie.  The books include pages from some of your favorite sellers as well as some talented new sellers.   I am honored to have been included in this year’s Grades 1-2 book.  You will find the links to the other ebooks (PreK-K, 3-5, 6-12 ELA/SS, and 6-12 Science/Math) from the Grades 1-2 book page.

My freebie is a winter-themed Capture 4 game for the meaning of the equal sign.  Such a hard concept for kiddos to grasp, so lots of practice is important.  The strategy component of Capture 4 games adds a problem solving element to the activity.  Consider putting ten-frames and counters in the workstation with the game for students who need concrete support.
