1, Monday - This is not school related but my obsession since I am planning my sister's wedding shower next month. I made a pennant bunting to decorate with. I have made 3 and I am in the process of making one out of our mom's old wedding dress.
2. Tuesday - Math stations with my fifth graders. I use Tara's over at 4th Grade Frolics math stations you can purchase it at TpT. Click here to go to Tara's store. Love it!
Here is another idea I umm borrowed from Tara. She uses Scholastic Dyna Math Magazine and cuts up the articles and has the kids glue them in their math notebooks.
3. Wednesday - We have been working on landforms in fourth grade science & planets in fifth grade science. For land forms I have been using Ari's Landform Posters & Fold Ups. from The Science Pengiun. I made my own planets graphic organizer that I have not tweaked enough to link but hopefully will soon.
4. Thursday- We had our annual science fair . Here is my post from Thursday on our science fair. if you would like to read it. OMG I had to come back & add this... I won my first Facebook giveaway from Jamie over at Miss Math Dork. I won Valentine Math Station activities on fractions plus it is already differentiated already. WOO HOOO! I started following her because who could not LOVE the name of her blog & then I started following her on Instagram and fell in love with her bullie Dozer. Now I follow Jamie on Facebook. I sound like a stalker. LOL
|Yep that is a 5th grader's project. Super smart kid!|
5. Friday - My fourth graders did math stations. In one of the stations I have them use iPads and go on their free Scootpad accounts and practice their math skills. They love iPads.
They also played Snowball Smack which is also at Tara's store just click on the name & it will take
you to her store. The kids beg to play this one.
