Celebrating 500 followers with a FREEBIE!

It's sure been busy over at Down Under Teacher! I've just reached 500 followers - YIPPPEEEE!! - and created a 50 page beginners multiplication freebie to show my appreciation. 
 Not a follower? How about heading over and checking it out!

We've recently come back from holidays and I was CAH-RAZY enough to go in and rearrange my whole room. Sigh. But I love the changes I made and you can check out some new pics of my classroom and read about  how I structure my guided math groups in recent posts.  I use the TIME acronym: 
T: Teacher's Choice (sometimes I work with individuals for assessments rather than the groups, hence the name - it allows me more choice as to what I do with the group). 

I: Independent Work (includes computer programs, worksheets, activities with manipulatives etc to work on the current concept).

M: Math Facts (usually games, flash cards or partner activities to work on math facts or a targeted mental math strategy).

E: Essential Revision (going over something via a game or activity, with or without a partner, to review a concept from a few weeks ago to keep it fresh). 

You can read more about it here

Want some freebies? I've also posted polka dot clock times and boggle letters.
Ciao for now!
