Pig Math

Wow!  What a day!  We had our school's annual Jog-a-Thon today.  It was a huge success!  I ran 30 laps and am beat!  

My 2nd graders use Lory Evan's Pig Math to practice our facts daily.  They are loving it!  I recently saw that Lory had created a form to send home each week that included math and reading.  I decided that I needed to make my own to go in our Data Binders.  I wanted to share the form that I created which my 2nd graders will use to keep track of our timed math facts in our data binders.  The kids will highlight each level that they successfully complete.  


  1. Hi! Just read your post about station rotations and wanted to chime in.

    I'm doing Daily 5 this year, so I don't need them for reading, and I'm doing the pocket chart thing for math. But in the past I have made cards for the centers and ones with the kids' names and just added magnets and used it with a magnetic board. Also, one of my teammates made a cool poster with a wheel, and just uses velcro stickies for everything. I like your idea though. It seems easy to manage and change if need be.

  2. Thanks for all the great ideas! I gave you the I Heart Your Blog Award.
