El Metodo Cientifico (Scientific Method) Lapbooks

Hey, everyone!

I love lapbooks...or flapbooks...which is why I am FlapJack. And I guess I love pancakes, too?

My students just finished their scientific method flapbooks, and I think they did a great job. They ended up being a great study tool for them, too, before the test.

 I have more than six students, but I told them only the best would make the wall. So, hopefully they will try even harder on our next flapbook.

I wish had this ready as a freebie or an item, but I don't think it's going to happen. However, the cinco sentidos book is available by Lita Lita here.

You can also click the button to see my lapbook titles.

I do need to get around to doing a lapbook freebie. Hopefully soon. Do you use flapbooks or lapbooks?

Happy Teaching!


Paint Swatch Mental Math

So I succumbed to the paint swatches, although I felt a little guilty taking them for a different purpose than what they are intended for. But, when the government starts paying us what we deserve, I'll have more of a conscience about those things. :p.

Since we are working on mental math in my fourth grade classroom, here's what I did (I'm sure this post is out there a million times over. My apologies if so!):

1) First, I cut the swatches in three parts and rearranged them with different colors.

2) Then, with my beautiful handwriting (dripping sarcasm there), I added simple addition and subtraction problems.

Here they are, ready to go:

After laminating, I'll place them in a math center. Or I could do it in a whole group and have them find each other. That would be a great way to do grouping if I needed groups of three. But you have to have the right number of students or it gets complicated giving a child more than one card.

So, that's my take on paint swatches. What's yours?

Have a great week!


H"OWL"oween Poke Math Games and FREEBIE

Hey, everyone!

I've been quiet here the past few days. Had an awesome birthday followed by a super fantastic observation by my assistant administrator. She was full of praise and said she would be happy to put her child in my class. Needless to stay, my cheeks were red like tomatoes - an unfortunate trait of a somewhat shy red head.

So, I have pulled out another title. Well, two. Well, ten. I've created two sets of owl math pack games to practice facts in all four operations.

The first I love. They just turned out so cute thanks to JW Illustrations amazing clip art.

And this is how they work. You print and laminate. Hole-punch each of the answer choices. Circle the correct answer on the back. Get some coffee stirrers or some type of blunt points. And now you have a fun, self-checking, no-pressure way to review math facts.

If you're interested in this pack, click the image below.

Individual titles are also available:
Addition Facts
Subtraction Facts
Multiplication Facts
Division Facts

I have also created these in a basic owl design that can be used all year long.

This is also available in individual titles:
Addition Facts
Subtraction Facts
Multiplication Facts
Division Facts

And now for the really fun part. I made a color-by-answer math sheet with a H"OWL'oween theme! I found it so cute I just had to try it out myself.

You can have fun with this freebie, too, by clicking on the image below.

In my opinion, this worksheet could be used from 2nd to 5th grade. I will have my fourth graders use mental math to solve the problems.

Hope you find  ituseful and hope you have a great week! Be on the lookout for another giveaway, and I hopefully also want to get a post out about adding images to QR codes. It's on my list at least!
