Hey, ya’ll! I’m teaming up with a bunch of awesome 3-5th grade teacher authors to share some fun St. Patrick’s Day freebies. So, if you teach upper elementary, this should be right up your alley!
We are also sharing why we feel lucky as a teacher and human being in general. I have so many reasons, but I’m just going to blurt out the first things that come to my mind:
- My husband. He is my travel buddy, my listening ear, my interior decorator, my comic relief, my everything.
- My dog. She’s my best friend!
- My job and school. I work in the most positive atmosphere, have great students, and love what I do as a Spanish immersion content teacher.
- My partner teacher. She is 80% of why I love going to my job every day. She is my “figurative” wife, and I’m so lucky to have her!
- My country. Despite social/political disagreements all the time, I’ve visited many countries and I can wholeheartedly say, I’m SO lucky to have been born in ‘Merica!
Ok! So now to share some golden math goodness! This freebie is two years old – wow! But I updated the cover and I want to make sure you knew about it. Here it is:
It’s a great little set of 12 QR code task cards for 4th-5th graders to review divisibility rules. My 4th graders actually completed this today.
Here’s how I went about it:
- After a few lessons and a review about divisibility rules, I placed the cards around all the walls.
- Students paired up and solved the problems.
- But they did NOT scan the QR codes. Which is crazy for me, but sometimes I like a little more accountability.
- After students finished, we put away pencils, took out pens, and checked them as a whole group to see how they did.
Now keep on hoppin’! I am so very HAPPY I get to introduce the next blogger in the hop (another reason I’m so lucky right now!). Her name is Marissa of Inspired Owl’s Corner. She is as sweet as she is talented, and she actually wrote one of my most popular guest posts. So click here or on her blog button to check out her blog and freebie. Happy St. Patty’s, teachers!
