Say Hello to my little friend

Hi All!!

It's super late on Monday night, but I had to share this little bit of fun with you before bed.

Do your students have the hardest time understanding the equal sign? With the roll out of the Common Core I see the students as needing to know the equal sound doesn't mean just an answer, but that they need to balance the equations on either side of the equal sign. This is a really hard concept for kidlets so my response is my special new friend...CARMINE THE EQUAL SIGN!

Carmine is loaded with a class reader, practice books, a mini math activity book, a memory game and a blank equal sign for students to use in a variety of ways. 

I can't wait for next year to really spend some time focusing in on the equal sign with my new friends!
Click here to visit Carmine in my TPT store. He's looking for some pals!

The first THREE commenters will get Carmine the Equal Sign for FREE!!
