Congratulations! My first year teaching, we got a $600 raise. It was 1990, and it was a big deal since our district had not had a raise in a few years. A bunch of us were at dinner and one friend who was a bank manager said, $600 is an excellent raise, my tellers don't even get a $600 raise. I asked how can a bank not give a $600 raise to a teller? That's 28 cents an hour? The table went DEAD QUIET, everyone thought teachers were getting a $600 a week raise, A WEEK! That was the first time, but not the last, that entire group of college educated professionals told me to leave....no one could believe I was only making $20,600 a year! TpT has given us an avenue to enjoy our profession, but still be able to provide for our families! Good luck getting to your next goal! Fern :)

These task cards were made to compliment the beginning of Go Math, Third Grade, Chapter Two. However, by request of some of my homeschooling friends I have removed all references to Common Core. I hope your children enjoy learning about tables and graphs with these free task cards.
