Just for fun!

I am working this weekend to get some plans ready for the week, and I am printing off some of my spring word problems, my spring bulletin board project, and my informational text pausing points.  I thought it might be fun to give away a set of each of them to someone ELSE who is planning!



What are we working on in our "studio"?  Multiplying fractions then measurement...finishing our immigration diaries then moving to informational text reading and writing with an emphasis on different text structures.  We are going to do a little cartography where we make a map of our state and it's bordering states and bodies of water, we are finishing our human body unit--just circulation and respiration to go!  We still have memoirs, BizWorld, motion and design, and MORE to go! What are YOUR next units of study?  Leave a blog post comment as one of your entries and let me know!

Interested?  Check out the rafflecopter below.

It's a one day giveaway so enter now--it all closes at midnight tomorrow!  As a bonus, I'll put these 3 items on sale for the next few days as well!  Here they are...






Interested in ANOTHER giveaway?  Check out THIS ONE as Elementary Matters celebrates 1,000,000 page views!  Yep...I've donated a product to it--but CHECK out all the other ones!  More cool stuff to win!  See you tomorrow!

  2. Hiya Meg! I am trying to get through Canada's Connections to the Global Community and Biodiversity. Just finishing up Space. I am in the race to the end of the year...we have grade six standardized testing at the end of May and then grade six graduation in June. Busy, busy, busy time of year! Hope you are having a great weekend!

  3. We finish out the year with a huge weather unit! We study the clouds too and invite a weather reporter to our school to talk to the kids and end the unit with Cloudy and a Chance of Meatballs. It is great!

  7. We're in the midst of our Gold Rush unit here in California. Panning for gold, understanding supply and demand, and recognizing that the lack of government during the time period led to California's unique growth are on the books for the next few weeks. After that, we're on to an integrated unit that looks at how STEM and design thinking can be used by fourth graders to make the world a better place.

  11. My 3rd and 4th graders are working on units of measurement and time. We are in the midst of a weather unit, and writing personal narratives. It is so hard to keep them contained as we start to experience hints of spring!

  13. We have just started our geometry unit and we used your angle concept sort on Friday, which they loved! In social studies we are just about to wrap up our study of the American Revolution. The last bit we need to do is a research paper. Our last science unit for the year is rocks and minerals which means a field trip to the "Desert of Maine." In writing we are continuing our work on persuasive essays. So much to do.... so little time left!

  15. After testing, we do more project-type activities: Revolutionary War simulations and research, math art projects, such as tessellations, bridge building and balloon car races, the novel NIght of the Twisters and a study of tornadoes and weather, and finishing up with our Mystery Classes search from Journey North. We are also going to try our hand at creating some Auras (Augmented Reality) videos. :) Thanks for the giveaway and ALL you share with us!! :)

  19. We've done our state testing, so we are now working on all of them items that weren't on state tests, but are on our proficient skills list. (We haven't started common core in PA yet.) I will be working on area and perimeter, long division, simplifying fractions, etc. In ELA, we will be reading a few novels, doing book clubs and practicing all that we've learned. Thanks for the opportunity to win some goodies! I'm always looking for new things to do with my kiddos.
