Decimal Scavenger Hunt CCSS

(0)
Here is a fun activity to get your students up and moving around the room while actively involved in math. Simply print, cut, laminate (if you want to save the cards) and hide the cards around the room. The pack features: Base 10 blocks Money Word Problems Fractions Addition and Subtraction problems Aligned with 5.NBT.A.1, 5.NBT.A.3, 5.NBT.A.4, and 5.NBT.B.7 CCSS All these relate to finding the decimal value for each card. Students record their answer on the answer sheet in the corresponding box. Then they must re-write their answers in the next set of boxes, while rounding their decimal to the nearest hundredth. Finally the students must complete the addition problems, where they are adding the value of two decimals that they found in the hunt.

Life Cycle of a Star Packet

(0)
Here is a combined packet of my popular "Life Cycle of a Star" sequencing worksheet, and "Life Cycle of a Star" vocabulary cards. Buy both together and receive an immediate discount! Here are the original descriptions of each: Sequencing Worksheet When I began teaching my Space Unit for Grade 1, I could not find any activities that depicted the star life cycle. We were trying to make connections to previous life cycles we had learned (butterfly, plant). This is a great activity to do with Early Childhood students. This depicts 5 stages of the Star Life Cycle: 1. Stellar Nebula (creation/birth of a star by gases being pulled together). 2. Average Star (when a star is burning brightest and appears yellow). 3. Red Giant (the star is burning off lots of gas, emitting heat so it appears red). 4. Planetary Nebular (gases are escaping the star and it starts getting smaller). 5. White Dwarf (the last phase before a star dies and it grows very small before losing all of its gas). My second language learners loved acting out the start life cycle as well: Pushing hands together and packing them as if they are squeezing the gas together (Stellar Nebula) Putting their hands by their faces with big eyes and smile to "shine" brightly (Average Star) Arms out to their sides and stomping their feet like a giant would (Red Giant) Arms pulling apart from their bodies to simulate the gas leaking out (Planetary Nebula) Shrinking down to the floor to get really small (White Dwarf) I have also included a student sample to help illustrate the different phases. Vocabulary Cards: It has been so popular that I decided to create some vocabulary cards to support this resource. Each card includes the name of the stage in the life cycle, a hand drawn image, as well as a description of what is happening to the star during that particular stage. Print and laminate for durability. Please make sure to rate and leave feedback!

Testing Materials Experiment

(0)
This is my "Testing Properties" experiment. Students will be shown 3 different types of materials: Plastic, stone, and wood. The students will do 3 tests on each materials to determine which one is the most useful in our day to day lives. They should test each material in flexibility, water resistance, and strength by having it support weight. Students will complete the first side of the activity together before the experiment, then do the experiment, and finally will write about their conclusions. The recording sheet follows the scientific method/process skills when conducting an experiment. Step One: Make Guesses Step Two: Determine if the test is fair Step Three: Experiment Step Four: Draw the experiment Step Five: Discuss findings Step Six: Suggest an alternative material

Multiple Intelligences Survey: How Do You Learn?

Multiple Intelligences Survey: How Do You Learn?

(1)
This is a visual survey based on aspects of Howard Gardener's Multiple Intelligences I made for my ESL students to be used at the beginning of the school year. Given a language barrier it was a great tool that gave me insight into how my students like to learn, what materials they like to use, and what their favorite part of school is. While I used this survey for ESL, I feel it can be used for any mainstream/ESL grade level in the primary grades Each student completes the survey by either circling or coloring (whatever is easier depending on your students' abilities), one or more answer for each question. Make sure they understand not to circle every answer, but to pick only the ones that pertain to them. Once the survey is complete, you can use the teacher answer key to understand what the data means and how to effectively use it. I used my surveys to help me differentiate my lessons, how to manage my guided reading and writing more effectively, as well as how to motivate my students to complete their work. It also gave me good ideas about how to set up my seating chart, which students might work well together, and which of my more chatty students might need to be separated. And one extra bonus, this is a GREAT tool when it comes to observations and professional development, and you get asked about why you have differentiated in a particular way!

STEM: Building Circuits Mini Books

(0)
This is a set of 4 mini instruction books explaining with pictures how to build 4 different types of circuits. Most circuit kits at schools come with these items, but I purchased each item from Amazon, Home Depot and Radio Shack for my circuit centers. My students will each have a box to work with containing different parts of circuits, and they will then use the instruction book to assemble the circuit. ***PLEASE NOTE: Additional materials are needed if you want to set up your own circuit centers*** Light Circuit: Low watt bulb, matching bulb holder, 2 alligator clips with wires, and a 9V battery Solar Light Circuit: 3v solar panel (Amazon) and a 3v LED light Motion Circuit: 3v motor (Amazon) and a 3v coin cell battery Sound Circuit: 3v buzzer (Amazon) and a 3v coin cell battery Simply print out the pages, cut, laminate, and bind to make mini books. Each book contains visual steps, as well as a description of what to do. Set these up in an independent science center as well! Please make sure to rate and leave feedback!

This is a great activity as a summative assessment for a space unit. The brochure should be folded into thirds, featuring "Space Travel Brochure" as the front. This brochure includes: What to bring in space? activity where students name 5 things astronauts need, and then will draw lines to match the words to the astronaut picture. What will we see in space? activity where students will write the names of the 8 planets. Some planets we will visit are? map where students shall draw the 8 planets and label them in their correct order from the Sun. There is a sample brochure included for reference.

Behavior Management Student Survey
LyndsDiveLyndsDive

Behavior Management Student Survey

(0)
BEST BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT SURVEY Owing to the popularity of my Multiple Intelligences Survey: How Do You Learn?, I created a new survey to be completed by students in class or at home with parents to show what they think and feel about classroom rules and behavior management techniques. We all know the importance of differentiating curriculum to student learning styles. But how many of us actually apply that same principal to behavior management...not too many I bet. It is so simple to apply one behavior management system to the entire class, or sometimes our principal requires us to use a school wide model. However, we all know that our students are going to behave differently, and therefore we should be actively differentiating behavior management methods to best meet the needs of our students. Using this survey will give you additional data to help your classroom function more smoothly, and to show administrators why differentiating behavior management is important to the student development in class. Also a great thing to have on file during parent teacher conferences!
