Real Teachers Learn: Math Manipulatives and Fraction Art {Fractions and decimal relationship- hundredths}

1st and 2nd interactive writing notebook-editable

Summarization Strategy called "the incredible shrinking notes". Students start out writing a summary of a reading selection on the large index card. Students are then given the medium sized card and have to take the information from the large card and condense it onto the medium sized card. Finally, students are given the small card and must take the information from the medium sized card and condense it further onto the small card. Great way for students to get to the main point/idea!

Problem of the week. Student learn to problem solve with difficult brain teasers, logic problems, and math word problems.

A great way to practice measuring angles! Tape up desks with different colored tape and let students use marker on the table to write in the degrees! Students LOVE writing on the tables! (picture only)

Beginning Digraphs! Write the beginning digraphs for each picture (th, wh, sh or ch)

Place this worksheet and some magazines in a center and watch the learning happen! LOOOVVEEE This!! :)
