Touch Points - Love 'em or Hate 'em?

Just curious - do you use Touch Points in your classroom?  I am not a huge fan, but I do see the "point" when working with students who struggle in math.  My school uses it as a supplement.  I would love to know if you use Touch Points and what you think about them.

*Also, I made a set of posters to hang in my room (b/c the ones that came with the program were knocked off my wall during summer cleaning and have water damage...sigh...).  If you would like a FREE copy, please do the following:

*Join my blog (not just following by e-mail)
*Leave a comment telling me your opinion of Touch Points
*Leave your e-mail




I will e-mail a FREE copy of my super cute Chevron Touch Point Math Posters (with both D'Nealian and Zaner Bloser print) to anyone that responds by 10 p.m. CST on Thursday evening!  Then, they will be available on TpT.  :)  Have a great day!

Graphic Organizers

I have been working on a set of Graphic Organizers to follow the Treasures Reading Series (K).  I wanted something I could model with whole group on my SMART Board, but something that could also be used for independent practice at a station.  I came up with a nice little set of Graphic Organizers for Start Smart. Here are a few samples from the packet.  :)  I tried to keep it very simple at the beginning so kinders with no previous background experience don't get frustrated.

I am using Rafflecopter to give away two sets of Graphic Organizers.

Please leave a comment and let me know if you would be interested in having a set of Graphic Organizers for all 10 units of Treasures.  :)
