Another TpT Sale!

Monday, May 6, 2013
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!  In case you haven’t heard, Teachers Pay Teachers is having another one of their huge sales.  Be sure to drop by and visit your favorite sellers and stock up on goodies for your classroom.

The countdown to summer is on!  I have a few more things I need to cover with my class but I like to spend this time having the students practice their basic facts.  One of my class’s favorite games is BOOM!  Students take turns drawing fact cards. They get to keep the card if they know the correct answer. The winner is the person with the most cards when the BOOM! card is drawn. I store the game in a decorated Pringles can which the kids get excited over.

If you’re like me and you need some more games for practicing math facts, check out these BOOM! games that will be on sale in my TpT store May 7-8.

If you want to give it a try before you buy, the addition version is FREE!

I hope you’re having an awesome week!

Foldable Fun–Geometry

Saturday, May 4, 2013
WARNING: This post contains A LOT of graphics!

My students get a kick out of adding new things to their math journals and they learn so much doing it.  We recently added these to our journals as a way for us to remember some key terms associated with 3 dimensional shapes.  The kids love turning a flat piece of paper into a 3 dimensional shape.

I love that these foldables flatten out so that the journal can be closed without smooshing the shape.

It can also be lifted up so that notes can be written underneath.

And, it’s super easy for your kids to make.  Here’s how to do it…

If you give this a try, I would love to hear how they turn out.  I hope you enjoy your weekend!
