Multi-Colored Genre and AR Classroom Library Kit - Includes Editable Labels

(0)
New! This product now includes editable labels that can be customized using powerpoint! This product has everything you need to organize your classroom library by AR Book Levels or the following 10 genres: Realistic Fiction, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery, Traditional Literature, Informational, Biography, Autobiography and Poetry. Colors Used Include: Sky Blue & White Polka Dot, Lime Green & White Polka Dot, Tangerine & White Polka Dot, Hot Pink & Polka Dot, Red & White Polka Dot, Lemon Sherbert & White Polka Dot This set includes: ~Genre Posters: One poster for each genre. Each poster contains a definition and several titles from the genre. ~Genre Labels: One set of 4.25”x 3.5” genre labels for book tubs or bookshelves. ~Book Label Code Sheet Poster: One poster that serves as the ‘key’ for the book spine labels. ~Book Spine Labels: One sheet of sixty book spine labels for each genre. These labels work with Avery Return Address Labels (60 per page). ~AR Book Level Labels: One set of 4.25”x 3.5” AR labels for book tubs or bookshelves ~Editable Multi-colored Poster Page (Powerpoint needed) ~Editable Labels (Powerpoint needed) Personally, I prefer to leave the posters a standard 8.5 x 11 size. My thinking is that I don't need someone to be able to read them from across the room. Instead I want them to be a resource students can use when browsing the library. Therefore, a standard size is perfect. The posters, however, can be enlarged. For directions how to make posters using your printer, read my blog post on the topic.

I find that my students refer to the fold-ups throughout the entire school year!

Flip for Math: Step-By Step Flip Books for Long Division - Set of Three Books

(0)
Send this step-by-step guide home with long division homework! The purpose of a ‘We Flip for Math’ Flip Book, is to provide a struggling student witha step-by-step guide to take them through the process they are struggling with. I have various flip books available in my classroom, but only after I’ve taught the concept and we have practiced it a number of times. The complexity of some skills can be quite challenging for many students. Being able to remember all the steps can become overwhelming for some. A flip-book can help walk these children through the process. In addition, I have found flip-books can be helpful when sending homework home . Including a flip book can make for very happy parents! This packet contains three flip-books. • Single Digit Divisor Long Division, • Double Digit Divisor Long Division • Dividing BIG Numbers. BIG Numbers shows dividing a four digit dividend by a two digit divisor. While not the biggest of numbers, to a 5th grader, this is a BIG division problem. Not wanting to waste paper, I included several division problems students could use as practice problems. These problems can be found on the final page of the BIG Numbers Long Division book. These 3 cards, could be laminated and placed at a center. While working the division problems, the flip book could be used as a reference. To assemble each Flip Book simply run single-sided copies of all pages. Laminate for durabillity. Cut on the dotted line. Put the pages in sequential order-- cover should be on top. Bind or staple (binding works best) across the top!
Types of Fractions (Improper, Proper, Equivalent, Mixed Number)

Types of Fractions (Improper, Proper, Equivalent, Mixed Number)

(0)
Help students distinguish types of fractions! This foldable features four types of fractions: Improper Fractions, Proper Fractions, Equivalent Fractions & Mixed Numbers. It works well in a math journal or as a stand alone resource. Each type is defined and an example is shown. This foldable can be run with all labels on. All your students need to do is cut, fold and glue. Or, you can run a blank template and a 'parts' page and allow your students to assemble. Still another choice would be to run just the cover and have students glue inside parts in or vice versa. It's really up to the teacher. If you don't teach all four types or if you'd prefer to teach them one at a time, simply cut the four types apart and present each type one at a time! I try to make my foldables as versatile as possible. When running copies, be sure to do a test print to make sure the front cover and inside are copied properly and fold up right.

The Less Paper Classroom: Multiply a Fraction & a Whole Number

(0)
I began creating the Less Paper Classroom product line after seeing a need for a true digital product I could use in my own classroom. I believe being completely paperless is an unfair expectation for any classroom, I do believe, however, that using less paper can be achieved, and this product is designed to allow the teacher to do just that. This product includes 25 full page PDF solve cards. Each solve card features a multiplication equation (a fraction times a whole number). In addition, each solve card is followed by a full page PDF check card. Each check card features a large QR code, which should be able to be scanned from anywhere in the room if projected on a classroom display screen. Once scanned, the QR code reveals the correct answer. Also included is a traditional recording sheet and a traditional answer key. One huge benefit of a less paper product, is that after downloading the classroom teacher has literally no prep at all. How cool is that? The zip file contains several different file formats. Choose the one that best suits the many ways you plan to use them: Both Solve and Check Cards, Solve Cards Only, Check Cards Only. I have also included a page describing several ways I have used these cards in my room. While this product was designed to be used on a tablet, iPad or projected on a classroom display like a mimeo or a smart board, you could certainly print it out and use it in a more traditional way if you like. Be sure to check out my blog to read posts about my journey to becoming a Less Paper Classroom and watch for additional "The Less Paper Classroom" Products arriving in my store soon!
Bathroom/Drink Passes (4 passes per sheet)

Bathroom/Drink Passes (4 passes per sheet)

(0)
These passes can be used when students request to leave the classroom to either use the bathroom, get a drink or both. I print several passes for each student, I write their name on the back with a sharpie, so no one will be tempted to use another student's pass. Students can keep the passes at their desks and turn in to teacher when using. I choose to put tickets in library card pockets on the wall. I laminate both the pockets and passes which allows them to last all year.

Also, included are five “Goofy Gorilla” cards (my version of the ‘Old Maid’) and an instruction card. I have included multiple gorilla cards for those teachers that choose to divide this product into smaller sets. Each of those sets will need a “Goofy Gorilla” card!
