GCF and LCM Four-In-A-Row Game
Sep

GCF and LCM Four-In-A-Row Game

This interactive game has students choosing the correct GCF (Greatest Common Factor) or the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of a set of numbers.

This game is great for use with pairs of students on an individual computer or on a interactive board for the whole class.

Many slides have both the GCF and the LCM listed requiring students to carefully chose. Many students confuse LCM and GCF so playing this game as a class gives another opportunity to have discussions about the difference in each. This is a read-only game.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

BOO Nonsense Word Fluency Practice Game

Do you DIBEL?

Nonsense Word Fluency practice

If you teach kindergarten or first grade you know how important quick decoding skills are to students’ success (and benchmarks) on the DIBELs Nonsense Word Fluency measure.

This activity is also appropriate for second or even third grade teachers who work with students who require remediation in their decoding skills.

This fun and engaging game is great for partners, small groups, and even whole groups.

“BOO” includes 78 nonsense word “Halloween character” cards and 36 “BOO” cards. Students try to collect as many “Halloween character” cards as they can before they get a “BOO” card.

The Pinballs Novel Unit ~ Betsy Byars
Sep
30
2011

This is a custom written literature unit to be used with The Pinballs by Betsy Byars.

This unit is designed to be used with some student/instructor interaction. It can also be revised as an independent study for the student. It is written as a 10-day unit but can be slowed down or sped up as needed for the individual student. It is written for the 5-8th grade reading level.

It would work great in a one-on-one setting for home school or for a teacher to use as a resource in the classroom for a small group or entire class. The unit is designed so that you can start teaching immediately with little to no preparation on your part. Great time saver!

This unit contains:

  • Teacher Packet containing detailed daily lesson plans, an answer key, and suggested curriculum connection activities
  • Student Packet containing vocabulary activities, comprehension questions, and extension activities that correlates with the book
  • An after the book activity packet

I wrote and developed this unit myself. I am a certified teacher in Nebraska. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Iowa State University and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. In addition to my Masters I have taken graduate courses on teaching of the Gifted and Talented. I have successfully used these activities in the classroom setting many times.

This is a SUPER activity to teach kids about the phases of the Moon!!!  Written in an easy to understand way, the students learn about the moon phases, then must put together a booklet in the proper sequence using context clues and diagram pictures!  Then, they illustrate each phase of the moon on each page to make a unique booklet they can keep for years to come and use later when needed..My students were very successful with this and it really helped them understand the phases so much easier!!!  Comes with a teacher direction page to make it EASY on YOU, too!
