In this product, you will find a differentiated comprehension activity and a PowerPoint to accompany the comprehension activity, along with some other lesson ideas you could incorporate into this resource.
These learning activities also double as STEM lessons! When we are finished learning about how the Ancient Egyptians built pyramids, I have my students bring in tissue/shoe boxes. Then in groups, the students go through the process of building a pyramid: drawing one, making a model with blocks and finally building their own pyramid with shoe/tissue boxes. This activity allows for a ton of self assessment and reflection upon completion of the unit.
These Addition Fact Posters feature addition facts from 1-5 and display the numbers in words and on fingers. Each poster has a black border, an Educlips "Just Kid," and addition facts in large bold type. Each poster fills US Letter Sized paper.

These spinners are great for Centres. One student, who I call the Score Keeper, is the spinner, answer checker, and score keeper. The Score Keeper spins the spinner and reads the time. Students in the group put the time on their clocks, and the Score Keeper uses the answer key to check. I have a class set of Judy Clocks that my kids LOVE to use, but I’ve included a paper clock you could use in this resource.
