So going back to school after being off for a week did about kill me.

Hence the reason why I have been MIA since Sunday.

I was so sick on Monday night and Tuesday.

I mean I was too sick to blog/blog stalk/pin.  That's serious.

I even took a sick day Tuesday.

I hate taking sick days.

If I am going to be away from my classroom, I'd much rather be able to enjoy it.

Plus, I wasn't prepared.  I left in such a rush on Monday because I felt so nauseous so my room was not ready for a sub.

Luckily I had a fabulous sub, who could read my non detailed, fever ridden, nauseous stomach, gotta get done plans I sent her from my sickbed.

I still can't really make myself eat much, but I'm feeling better. Today when I was back with my kiddos I had that horrible fear of mine almost come true.  I'm scared to death of vomiting/passing out/anything that would make me rely on 8 year olds happen.  I started feeling nauseous.  Luckily I had a Dum Dum to help calm my stomach. haha.

Well on to other things.

Thank you so much to everyone who has left a comment at one of my stores.  I have had so many sweet comments and messages lately, and it just makes my day every time I get an email from you guys! :)

I have lots to share, but I'm awfully tired and I haven't taken pictures of anything we have done at school.  I have only been there two days, so I think I can forgive myself.

We are in full TEST PREP mode. Ugh.  I really can't stand it, but it has to be done.  In NC, third grade is the first big state assessment.  So we really do have to teach them even how to take a test, along with reviewing our HUGE curriculum.  (so looking forward to Common Core next year).

Our third grade math test is always heavy on figuring out which operation to use to solve a word problem, so I always drill in Clue Words with my kiddos.

So, I started pulling out my stuff and realized I needed to jazz things up with my new skills, clipart and fonts!

So, Voila, here ya have it...some freebies for my bloggy friends!

It includes...

A study guide  for your kiddos. 

A Cut and Paste Activity

2 Word Problem Pages

You can download it for free at my TPT Store and TN Shop.  Leave a comment pretty please! Let me know what you think! :)

I didn't create posters for each operation because I already had some from my lovely friend Elisabeth.  You can get them at her shop for a  great price! Plus she's having a sale right now! Don't know for how long though!

Have a great Thursday!  We are half way done with our week friends!

  40. Hi Amber! I teach a summer camp about math problem solving strategies to soon-to-be 3rd and 4th graders and I just wanted to say that this handout was fantastic! It really helped them practice their operations. I tried to make it a little more exciting for a summer camp by finishing with a game incorporating these words! I split them into teams and had them rotate the role of leader and then I would call out a clue word, and leaders would have to quickly find and hold up the corresponding operation! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful worksheet!
