New Graphing Unit & A Reading Freebie!

I feel like I have been sitting in my recliner all day on my computer. I've gotten a lot done.  I have everything ready for this week.  Thank goodness!  I also finished up a new unit.  I made a Graphing Problem Based Supplemental Unit.  I called it "supplemental" because it doesn't have an assessment or homework each night like the Measurement Unit.

I am pretty proud of it and I can't wait until it's time for me to teach this unit. I have taught similar lessons to this unit in the past, so they do work in a real classroom.  The lessons are problem based, not just "worksheets". 

The File includes
*Set of Vocabulary Cards
*Lesson Instructions and Printables
*Six Problem Based Lessons.
Lesson 1: Free Throw Toss Part 1 (Creating a Table and Pictograph)
Lesson 2: Free Throw Toss Part 2 (Creating a Line Plot)
Lesson 3: A Human Circle Graph
Lesson 4: Allergy Problem Part 1 (Creating a Circle Graph to Solve a Problem)
Lesson 5: Allergy Problem Part 2 (Making a Decision and Writing a Letter)
Lesson 6: Class Comparisons (Creating Bar Graphs to Compare)

It is $6 at my TN Store and my TPT Store.

I will give the unit to two people who are followers of my Brand NEW TN Store. Just leave a comment and let me know that you are now a follower of my TN Store and leave your email of course! I will choose the two people tomorrow night! :)

Here is the Reading Freebie that I promised!  Last week our skill during shared reading time was all about Making Predictions.  We made this Pinterest inspired anchor chart (what would I do without Pinterest!)

It's a little blurry. Whoops. 

Then we made this foldable.  

For the fiction & nonfiction predictions,  I used the guided reading books from our old reading series.  I let the students choose what book they wanted to read, then they grouped up and made predictions. 

Here is the link to the foldable on Google Docs if you are interested!

Well, enjoy your last moments of freedom. Back to school tomorrow.  I will not be watching the Oscars. I have seen like three of the movies nominated. The Walking Dead is much more appealing to me tonight!
