I have added several new items to my Teachers Pay Teachers store! These items are all fifth grade mostly because of my new position in fifth grade…so if you are looking for:
Math Standards Posters: These simple posters are great for any classroom theme! Simply print and mount to any color paper, then laminate! Super easy and super flexible when it comes to matchy-matchy classrooms.
Interactive notebook science standard, can do, and EQ: I love these interactive notebook additions! They include each standard with the achievement indicators (beginning learner, developing learner, proficient learner, and distinguished learner) so students know how to best learn the standard, and a place to write the essential question. I love to have students try to answer the EQ before I have taught anything, then draw a line (we call it the line of learning). After the standard has been taught I have students answer the EQ again under the line! This allows me and the students to see the growth of their learning, misunderstandings, and reflection of the week!
Physical science vocabulary: All of my vocabulary is interactive! Cut out the word and definition attached, then fold it into a little booklet with the information on the inside. Have the students write the word on top and quiz themselves on the definitions! It is super easy, and fun! Plus the parents always compliment this simple entry into the student notebooks.
Teach 5, 1st nine weeks: Teach 5! This was the first thing I began working on when I heard about my move to fifth grade…I cannot begin to emphasize how important Teach 5 is in my classroom! This is a spiral review of the math standards. It is leveled and easy to differentiate in the classroom. Plus I have a free Teach 5 Set Up kit that lets you know how to make your own Teach 5!
Yes, I have been busy creating, but I have also realized that with my first baby on the way I will not be able to make everything myself. I have purchased many items on TPT and found tons of FREE stuff to help me!
As a third grade team we have started to discuss how we did on last year’s GMAS (If you aren’t sure what that is take a look at this). We have discussed how a great spiral review in mathematics really seemed to benefit the students and keep all of their learning in their minds.
I use Teach 5 to do this with mathematics. To learn more about Teach 5 read some of my older posts about it and take a look at these resources.
We are still on the hunt for a great science spiral review for third grade Georgia Performance Standards. If you know of one comment with a link to the product. I am open to all things at this point. That or I am going to have to make one!
It is FRIDAY!!!! You would think that Halloween is tomorrow with how hyper my students are. Just for fun, we are having a coloring contest. Today I gave each student in my homeroom a Halloween coloring sheet. They will have … Continue reading →
The new year has started and I am exhausted! Last week was our first full week and it was a BLAST!!!!! Now to Open House details. I changed up how I did my stations this year and loved it so … Continue reading →
Yes, I have recreated my Open House Stations again! I needed them to match my new classroom theme, but then I did some reflecting on Open House last year and wanted to change some of my stations.
You can have my new Open House Step-by-Step signs for FREE! Grab this freebie here. The signs come in many different polka dot colors. As you can see I added a little die-cut elephant to the bottom of mine and mounted them to construction paper to make them a little more sturdy. Be looking for my post on how I use these at Open House in the future!
Have you thought about what you are going to teach next school year? I know I think about it constantly! In order to wrap my head around the curriculum from my school I need to break it down in a way that makes sense to me. As I was breaking it down this year it occurred to me that not everyone has these templates and many people charge money for them…SO here they are for FREE!
