End of Year Idea

I know I have been MIA for a long while. I can't promise I am back full force, but I do want to share a fun activity my students completed today as an end of the year idea. 

My principal gave me this idea last week and I ran with it. 

On Monday students traced each other on large butcher paper. Wish I had photographed this. 
They were comical 

Then they colored and decorated themselves. I hung them all over the room. 
Let me just say 5th graders are really long. 

Yesterday, they had a sub while I played the role of "Mom" on a 4th grade field trip with my middle child. Students completed a sheet with every classmates name on it. They had to write a compliment for each person. 

Example: Mary is smart and helps her friends. 

Today, they took those compliments and wrote them in marker on each persons drawing. 

It was chaos for a while, but I know they liked reading what others said about them. 

We rolled them up and they took them home. I hope they share them with their parents tonight! I know, I would love to see what other kids said about my own child. 

I also wrote something on each child's person.
I signed mine. I did not require students to sign their name, but most of them did anyway.

Just a few samples

We have 4 1/2 days left. 
Hope you are close to summer as well. 
The end is near...

Differentiation Cubes

I finally completed a new product!!! 

I had been working on it when school started and then just got swamped. 
This Thanksgiving break has helped me complete it. 

Now I have 4 sets of Differentiation Cubes available, 

What I love about this is they are challenging and also work for intervention. 

They work great for small group and math stations, and are exceptional for RTI groups. 

Here's an example of the place value cubes. 
Easy to print and make. 
Print on colored paper, laminate and fold. (Card stock is too thick) 
They are sturdy and last really well.
I have a personal scotch laminator and its thick, so I definitely recommend that. 

Each cube has a different question, but uses the same numbers. 
For addition, subtraction, and multiplication fact families are included. Number lines and even writing in math. Each has a word problem too. Students are going to love them, but also use their thinking skills.
