New Math Game Freebie

Just had a math training today.  Here is a card game that we played today.  I thought this would be great to do tomorrow after MAP testing.

This is Free on TPT and TN.

Food Chain Activities

Here is a food chain activity that I have done with my class.  It is a simple activity but it helps students visualize the food chain.  Just click on the picture below to download. 

If you like this activity be sure to check out my shops.  I have another food chain activity with popcorn that is only a $1.  One of my best sellers so far.

Desert Experiment and a Freebie

Just before spring break I finished up our  habitat unit.  Since we live in the Midwest and many of my students are not familiar with the desert so I created the My Desert Learning Packet for students to track their learning. (Which is free to download on TPT and TN just click on the links down below to find my shops.)

To have my students better understand why animals burrow in the sand during the day we did this simple experiment.  Just add some sand to a flower container and put it under a desk lamp.  Turn it on first thing in the morning.  By the end of the day have students feel the warm sand.  Also have some sand that you do not put under the light and have students feel the difference. 

My students also had the opportunity to answer this question:  How do desert plants live on very little water?  This is a great activity for students.  You can purchase this experiment at TPT and TN for just $1.

Memory Books Uploaded

I have my End of Year Memory Books uploaded to Teachers Notebook.  Click on the picture below to check it out.

If you don't see your theme just leave a comment below and I will do my best to create one.  I would rather fill requests first then to create a theme that no one wants.
This week I will be off on spring break so I will be spending some time uploading more of my documents to Teachers Notebook. I know I have had requests to add more themed clip charts. So more will be coming soon.

Also, I'm thinking of adding of a TPT shop.  So stayed tune for more information on that.

Just added a Pizza! Pizza Fraction activity.  Your class will be hungry for pizza after this activity.  Just click on the picture above to download this activity from Teachers Notebook. ($1)

This past week has a busy one with a school board meeting to attend, report cards due, and my evaluation.  Now all that is left to do is pass out report cards on Monday. 

This week I plan to add more of my files from Teaching Oasis to my Teachers Notebook store (End of Year Memory Boos) as well as add some new stuff over the next couple of weeks. 

Looking forward to spring break.  Only 4 more days!  But who's counting?  Me!!!
