Mastering Math Facts Webinar
Free Mastering
Facts Webinar


July 16, 2013, 8 p.m. EST


Register Now!


It seems like forever since I did my last webinar, so I'm especially excited to announce that I'll be presenting Mastering Multiplication Facts on July 16th. This webinar will be similar to the first Mastering Math Facts webinar I did 2 years ago, but I'll be sharing new information regarding how to meet Common Core standards as well as some new motivational strategies and tips for ensuring that all students master the times tables. If you aren't able to attend the live session on July 16th, you can still receive the recording, absolutely free, if you register


Autographed Book Giveaway

During the webinar I'll be giving away one autographed copy of Mastering Math Facts, but you do have to be present at the live session in order to win. If the winner already owns Mastering Math Facts, he or she may choose one of my other books or any digital resources worth up to $20. 

Class Handbook Covers
New! Free Class Handbook Covers

Updated for 2013 - 2014


I know that some of you are still in school, so I might be posting this a little early. However, I also realize that some of you will use time at the end of this year to prepare for next year, so I decided to share this freebie anyway! 


Last year I wrote a blog post on Corkboard Connections about why I create a class handbook and I also provide a free sample handbook you can customize. It included a cover to customize, but this year I decided to add to the freebie by creating two different handbook covers in both black and white and color. You can download them for free from my Seasonal page. I hope you enjoy them!


Summer Professional Reading 
Premium Combo
20% Off Print/Digital Combos 
Summer is a great time to do some professional reading and think ahead to the coming school year.
If you're interested in setting up a reading workshop program that's also aligned with Common Core standards, I'd like to suggest Power Reading Workshop: A Step-by-Step Guide and Graphic Organizers for Reading: Teaching Tools Aligned with the Common Core. You can preview both books from the links above.
If you are a 3rd through 5th grade teacher who is looking for a simple program to ensure times tables fluency, I recommend Mastering Math Facts Multiplication and Division: Aligned with the Common Core. The book includes everything you need including printables, assessments, and directions. 
Newsletter subscribers can use discount code CCC20 at checkout to get 20% off any print book shown above when ordered through the links in this email, and every print book comes with a free digital version! 

Multiple Intelligence Theory

How Many Ways
are You Smart?
Do you teach your students about Multiple Intelligence theory? You might think it seems a bit complicated for kids, but I found that when you use the kid-friendly MI terms shown on the right, upper elementary students can easily grasp the concept that people are smart in many ways. I took time to share my views about teaching MI theory to kids on Corkboard Connections this week, and I included an engaging free multiple intelligence survey you can use with your students. I also have a page of Multiple Intelligences resources on my website for you to browse. Teaching these concepts at the beginning of the year will help you get to know your students so you can teach to their strengths. It's a great way to start!


Engineering Activity Gearing Up for the Next Generation Science Standards

Guest blog post by 

Wendy Goldfein and

Cheryl Nelson


Is your state one of those that will be implementing the Next Generation Science standards? If so, you'll want to read this guest blog post by two educators who have recently launched a website called Get Caught Engineering. If you thought that engineering lessons were only for secondary students, think again! In their blog article, Wendy and Cheryl share strategies that elementary teachers can use to integrate engineering into other parts of the curriculum. I know you'll enjoy their blog post, Gearing Up for Next Generation Science. Please leave a comment to let them know what you think!
