This might be a long one, so get ready. (There is a freebie at the end!)
Since tomorrow is just a half day , we had our Easter/Spring Celebration today. Nothing too fancy, but they have been so hyped up all week, I just decided it was best to give in and hype them up some more.
So we did some jelly bean math. Yum, Starburst Jelly Beans! I was going to make my own, because sometimes it is hard to find fun holidays math activities for upper elementary. Things have been so crazy, I decided to look on TPT, I am glad I did! I found a fabulous jelly bean math activity! You can check it out here!
Well since I wanted to give credit to the person who made this, I went back to TPT and lo and behold this seller has a blog. Check out Erin at The Elementary Adventure. I am her newest follower! I couldn't resist the polka dots. It looks like she is pretty new to blogging, so check her out!
Since I am not doing an Egg Hunt with my kids, I had to do A Cupcake for the Teacher's Hippity Hoppin' Hunt! My kids loooooved finding the clues! I think some of my kiddos really believed a sweet little bunny left us these goodies!
Now, like I said, conferences are tomorrow. So I had to have lots of fun student work up! So we have been busy crafting/working/writing away! I really believe in plastering student work everywhere, so it's not really that unusual.
Here are some of the things we have up now!
Pinterest Inspired Coffee filter eggs. I love crafting with coffee filters. So easy. Color with markers and spritz with water!
Symmetrical Painted Butterflies
"Egg-cellent" Writing! Another Pinterest Inspired idea! The Writing Paper and header is free from What the Teacher Wants!
The last thing we made were Numeration Kites. The students were given a number and they wrote it in standard form, expanded form and word form on the kite. Then they created an addition, subtraction, multiplication and division number sentence using that number.
That's the freebie! I have put the templates, directions and several different teaching ideas to use for the kite! It is free at my Teacher's Notebook Shop. It would be at my TPT Store, but it isn't letting me upload!
If you download, let me know how you plan on using it. I'd love to hear some different ideas! :)
Have a great night!
