Hi Everyone! Hope you are enjoying summer break or about to! This month’s reveal and review is hopefully something you or a teacher friend can use in the classroom.
I just finished creating my Summer Math Task Cards for 4th grade. There are 32 cards that cover the entire year of 4th grade standards in math. Normally, I use the math task cards in class when I am teaching the 5th graders. However, I am looping with my 4th graders this coming year, so I sent these task cards home to do over the summer vacation. No, they don’t have to do them. But knowing my kiddos, they will probably at some point pull them out. I just wanted them to keep the skills that they have learned this year fresh in their minds.
If you are using these in the classroom, there are several ways to use them. One is to laminate them and use them as a center. I have also passed them out and used them as exit slips. Sometimes, I will just run a few for each group or table to share. It just depends on how you want to use them and what works best with your teaching style.
This product does have an answer key included. So if you want to check it out at my store, just hit the link below.
If you teach kindergarten through third grade, you have to check this product out! What is a Balanced Literacy Classroom? by 1stgradefireworks is fantastic! It is full of such great information to build a literacy binder.
Not only does it provide tabs, dividers, cover, etc., it explains the types of reading and writing found in a balanced literacy classroom. It is filled with reading strategies to use with students. From visualizing, making connections, and determining importance to choral and echo reading. There is also lots of information about running literacy centers with actual pictures and examples.
This product has worksheets for guided reading, running records, writing task cards, and much more. There is also a whole section on word study with pocket chart word sorts and word cards for concentration.
If you are just starting out or have been teaching for awhile, What is a Balanced Literacy Classroom? has something for you. It is nice to see a comprehensive product that has a directions, examples, classroom ideas, printables, and descriptions for all the parts of a balanced literacy program.
I am really impressed at how much is in this product! Please visit 1stgradefireworks or click the link below.
Thanks for checking out reveal and review this month. Next week, I will be focusing on cursive writing. Until next time!
