I have found a couple of fantastic resources that I'm planning on using this week as we review basic fraction concepts and work on converting between mixed numbers and improper fractions. I love using task cards, whether for SCOOT games, centers, or as independent practice, and this bundle from Yvonne Crawford is perfect for all of the fraction skills we'll be covering in our unit.
My students always seem to struggle with converting between mixed numbers and fractions, so I was glad to find a simple, yet fun, game to help them practice this skill during our "Math Games" rotation. This one is from Kristin Kennedy and is only $1.99!
interactive notebooks are AMAZING and have saved me SO much time this year!). Her bonus lesson "Citing Text Evidence" is perfect for what we needed. I love the simplicity of the strategy included and that it works for any type of discussion question, whether it's about literature, informational text, or in the content areas. Best of all, it's FREE! Grab yours by clicking the picture below.
this bundle from Molly at Elementary Lesson Plans. I love that it incorporates reading comprehension with the Social Studies content we already have to teach! We'll be using our Close Reading strategies as we go.
I also wanted to incorporate a timeline for students to fill in as we learned about the events leading up to the Revolution. As much as I looked, I just couldn't find what I wanted, so yesterday, I was hard at work creating my own. I'm planning to make another one for events during the War as well. As usual for new products, I'm doing a Pin it to Win it contest now through Wednesday. On Wednesday I'll randomly choose a winner!

Hope everyone has a fantastic week and enjoys your day off tomorrow!
