Owls Math Activities & Problem Solving!!!

So here goes my continued foray into creating materials for the classroom! I used my Owls in the Night graphics to create a beginning of the year math station to cover at least the first week. Click on any of the pictures to go to my Teachers Pay Teachers Shop! From there you can pick up these Math Stations for your classroom!

Last time I made a math station pack, I ended up using it for two weeks because the kids really enjoyed doing the same activity a couple of times. This is totally fine with me because it is sort of a pet peeve of mine to spend a lot of time creating something that they use for ten minutes!

Since I decided to make owls my new classroom theme, I thought it would be fun to do owls stations in the beginning before I get into holidays themes! I included 4 activities, 4 story problems that are matched to the activities, recording sheets for each activity, and a skill check assessment.

Since I have a thing about too much paper. I made each recording sheet so it was to be cut in half, so you get two for one. This also makes it the right size to glue into a notebook with room for “reflection” or a “what did you learn today?” sentence or two.

The Skill check is formatted the same as the Daily Problem Solving, so the kids are familiar with the themes and vocabulary. It should also help them feel more successful in the end!

You can download this Math Activity & Problem Solving Pack from my Teachers Pay Teachers Shop!

Magic School Bus: Blows its Top!

Looking at Rock the Rock Cycle becomes interesting as we follow the Magic School Bus on an adventure inside a Volcano!

Symbaloo to you too!

Ok, lets give this a shot. This is something I stumbled across today while doing some reading about inquiry based learning. It’s called Symbaloo, and it’s like a tailored web-quest type resource, that let’s you select not only resources for research and compile them into one page. It also let’s you link up collaboration and web tools. Neat idea, not sure how it will work in the classroom (as far as kids logging in and all that, remember my babies are only in 2nd)!

Above, I hopefully have embedded some sort of widget that is usable…I really have no idea what I did but here goes!
