Common Core Hot Seats

Hi all!! I am Caitlin from Kindergarten Smiles! This is my first post on Common Core Classrooms so I want to quickly introduce myself :) I have been teaching Kindergarten for 6 years in South Florida and this will be my second year using Common Core.  I love, love, love sharing my ideas with you and getting ideas from you all as well!! 
I created a great resource for Kindergarten Common Core Math (I will start working on ELA soon) called 'Hot Seats'. You may be wondering what exactly a 'Hot Seat' is....Well, hot seats are questions that are stuck underneath your students' seats with a small piece of tape when they are not in the room. When students take their seats, you can choose your time to announce that there are 'hot seats' in the room! Students will check under their seats, and if they have a questions stuck to it....uh-oh! They will have to show what  they know by answering the question. 
This packet has 8 math questions for each Common Core standard.  Here is a little sneak peak of what it looks likes...
This item is a 'paid' item; however, if you click on the picture above or HERE and download the PREVIEW, you can grab a page of the Common Core Hot Seats for free :) 
These are great for review, assessment, and just to have fun with Common Core! I would love for you to stop by and see me over at Kindergarten Smiles! :)

What a fabulous idea! I'm an ESL teacher so I can't wait for the ELA questions!

CUTE and Fantastic idea! I play Hot Seat, but my version is a tad different. I put two chairs back to back and then two students are in the "Hot Seat." etc.
Thanks again for sharing! Please check out my blog! SMILES
