So, let's get started.
Our teacher-author spotlight this week is Alison of Created by AliMath from Mornington, Australia. . Yes, you read that correctly AUSTRALIA! Wahoo!
This is what Created by AliMath has to say:
"Hi, my name is Alison and I am a 3rd Grade teacher in Australia. I have been teaching for eight years, two of which were spent teaching in California and Washington State. I love teaching Maths, hence the name of my blog, however, I am always searching for ways to improve my teaching and make each experience a rich experience. I am constantly searching online, reading and researching new theories and ways to be the best teacher I can. I am currently teaching in an IB school in Victoria, Australia. I take great pride in the organization of my room and my classroom management skills and would love to "Share my Wealth" with others!"
I have enjoyed looking over many resources that are currently available from this amazing teacher-author, Created by AliMath.

Great way to get the kids thinking about their thinking! You have great ideas but I can see it also used as a behavioral element.
Awesome! Can't wait to see what goals my 2nd graders come up with at the beginning of next year! Great idea! Everyone needs to have a goal!
I love the scrabble tiles. So cute!
I loved your scrabble classroom theme! I downloaded the Daily 5 freebie and knew I had to incorporate scrabble. Love, love love!!!...
I LOVE THESE NUMBER PUZZLES! GREAT FOR DIFFERENTIATION & HAVING STUDENTS REALLY UNDERSTAND THE HUNDREDS CHART! BRAVOOOOOOOOO
As you can see from this SMALL sample of feedback, Created by AliMath has really got some fantastic products. In fact, this wouldn't be a Share the Wealth Teacher-Author Spotlight if I didn't review one of these great products.
The resource I want to review for you, is actually a FREEBIE from Created by AliMath. WAHOO!
This 10 page sample pack is LOADED with great activities that you can use right away in your classroom! This pack is designed to help your students become better math problem solvers when faced with more complex story problems.
You would start by explaining and teaching students the KUSAC strategy as shown below. This great poster is included in the FREE sample pack. I think the thing that I love the most about this pack is how simple the strategy is. You won't have to spend two days trying to teach what each step means. What a blessing. There is nothing more frustrating that trying to teach a new strategy for several days, only to find that your students STILL don't get it. I don't think that will be the case here.
Even better, are the strategy practice questions that are included to help guide the students as the try out this new easy to use and remember strategy. There are several guided problems included to help you get an idea of what to expect in the full pack. However, you could totally start teaching your class with the sample pack as well.Created by AliMath makes to put the questions around the room and have the students move around and solve problems. Included is also a sheet for students to track their answers. An answer key is provided for your convenience as well. I am grateful for that. I am not a fan of buying a resource and then having to make my own answer key. After all, I have enough to do as a teacher.
Here are a couple pictures of some of the sample questions and the tracking sheet.
After you download this great resource by clicking HERE, I KNOW you will be interested in buying the full packet. The entire pack can found HERE. And, even better, Created by AliMath is having a 15% off sale RIGHT NOW on her booklets. The sale runs from September 21st to the 23rd. I LOVE sales.
