Math WorkSheets Land:A Different Kind of Worksheet!
This morning I noticed I was being followed, (on Twitter), by Julia Leonard of MathWorksheetsLand.
I cringed. I am not a fan of worksheets. I especially detest Math worksheets with 20 or more problems written in nice, neat descending rows, daring you to complete them all. Of course, if you know what you are doing, piece of cake. If you don't, it's a jumble of meaningless numbers. My motto is, if you can't do one, you can't do 20!
I decided to check out the site anyway, and I am glad I did. (I think what got me were the corny kid jokes in her Twitter feed, my kids and I love jokes.:)) I was pleasantly surprised. As you can see in the image above,the site is divided so that the material you are looking for can be easily accessed. The one that caught my eye was "Core Aligned" because that's the big push in my district.
I checked out a few worksheets(PDF),on decimals. There are worksheets for each standard. Look at the image below and see what you get when you click on a standard. I love the guided lesson worksheets. I can easily use the worksheet as an Exit or Entrance ticket. Oh, and there are also answer keys.
You can subscribe to the newsletter so you know when new sheets come out. And, she takes requests!The best thing of all, this is FREE! Even if you have an aversion to worksheets as I do, I think you will like what Ms. Leonard has to offer!
