Pointsettia Art Project

Are you looking for an easy, beautiful art project? My class was singing a poinsettia song for our Christmas concert so I wanted to tie it into art some how. I played around with different ideas and then decided on this BEAUTIFUL art project. I am so in love with how they turned out.

Fraction Quizzes: Fractions of a Group

I find that students struggle to understand how to find the fraction of a group.  They might understand dividing a single shape into equal pieces, but their comprehension breaks down when offered a set of objects.

Head over to this post at Artistry of Education to see how I teach this and download three short quizzes to use as entry and or exit tickets.

Writing About Christmas Symbols

My students are so excited about the holidays. How about your students? Their conversations are all about Christmas presents under the tree, their elf at home, what they have planned for their winter break, Santa, and more!

It's the perfect time to place holiday writing printables at a writing center that will engage the children in writing. Here's a packet of printables called, Writing about Santa and Helpers.

The children write about Santa, a Christmas tree, reindeer, stocking, candy cane, Santa's bag, and Santa's elves. Each printable has a picture and a speech bubble beside each picture with a short sentence about each one.

They can be used at a holiday-themed literacy or writing center or assigned as independent writing activities. They're a fun way for your students to practice their writing skills while enjoying the holiday excitement.

Snowman Money to Promote Positive Classroom Behavior

Oh it is that time of year again.  All the excitement and count down to our Holiday break.  I will let you in on a secret....I am counting down too.  :)  In order to promote and keep a little classroom order I decided to use these snowman themed snowbucks to hand out to children who are following the classroom rules.  On the last day before winter break we will open up a store for them to spend their snowbucks.  Parents will send in donations for our store and students will be able to purchase things for themselves, their friends, their parents, etc.  It is a hit ...with just a little prep...print on cardstock and laminate and they will keep year to year.  Head on over and grab your own set.

Free 1940 Time Machine Power Point

Free power point presentation explaining what life was like in the year 1940 - from Raki's Rad Resources

My students recently began reading the novel The Year of Miss Agnes which takes place in 1948 in Alaska. Because this setting is so abstract to my students, we started by taking a trip in the Time Machine to 1940. By presenting to my students this power point presentation, they have a better idea in their head about what life was like for our characters. If you'd like to share with your students what life was like in the year 1940, download this free power point from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
