Brownie Fractions Math
Jan
19
2018

Price $5.25 Everyone loves a brownie! In Brownie Fractions Math, learners answer questions after lesson plan activities. Brownie Fractions Math can be used as a class game, in cooperative groups or as a math center. This lesson includes: lesson plans for up to four math classes, 46 task cards, keys, links to song and math activities.

Your feedback is very much appreciated. Thank you.

Objectives:

3.NF.A.3 Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.

3.NF.A.3.a Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.

3.NF.A.3.b Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3. Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

3.NF.A.3.c Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.

3.NF.A.3.d Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

Penguins - Numbers (0-20) and Number Words (zero-ten) Sequencing (Winter)

Penguins - Numbers (0-20) and Number Words (zero-ten) Sequencing (Winter)

(black and white set)
This 4 page pack was created with differentiation for students in mind. Students can sequence numbers 0-10, 11-20, or 0-20 depending on the level of each student. Students who already know these numbers can work on sequencing number words zero-ten. 

You will need to provide students with a piece of paper or sentence strip to glue the numbers/words to after they put them in order. I always like to use a sentence strip or cut long construction paper in half and tape the pieces together to have one long strip so that students practice gluing them in order from left to right without having to sweep back to the left to glue some. 

This activity is also great for math centers or a pocket chart activity. Each sheet can be copied on colored tagboard, laminated, cut apart and put in a Ziploc bag for a math center to be used over and over throughout the year. It also makes a great concentration (memory) game using numbers and number words 0-10. 

It also makes great work for students when you have a substitute since the entire activity takes a while with coloring the pieces, cutting them out, and gluing the pieces in order. Students love adding their own color to decorate their number strip. 

For the colored set (four pages):

Copy each page, laminate, cut out, and place in a bag for student use in a center or other time during the day. These can be used over and over throughout the year. 

This activity is great for math centers or a pocket chart activity. If you do not have a pocket chart, students can sequence the numbers on the floor or table. It also makes a great concentration (memory) game using numbers and number words 0-10. Make two copies of the pages needed for a memory game. 

This colored set of numbers can also be laminated and used in a math center for counting sets of objects. Cut the numbers apart and put in a bag with manipulatives of your choice. Have students choose a number card and count out the correct number of manipulatives (not included) to match the number chosen. 

The colored set of penguins create a pattern when placed in the correct order (red, yellow, blue, and green).

I hope your students enjoy this fun activity.

Emergent Reader: Sight Word: in
Jan
19
2018

Emergent Reader: Sight Word: in

This emergent reader for the sight word "in" is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This 13 page book includes a title page with bubble letters spelling the focused sight word for students to color, then 10 pages include a black and white picture at the top of each page with a sentence using the focused sight word. There are two more pages asking students to draw a picture of their own and write a sentence of their own using the sight word, and then the final page asks students to trace the sight word three times and then write it three times on their own on the blank line. After this, there are 13 additional pages with the exact pictures and words as the first 13 pages. The only difference is that on this second copy of the book, the sight word being focused on is dotted on each page for students to trace. 

Each page in this reader includes a mode of transportation to get "in": boat, car, plane, rocket, bus, submarine, helicopter, train, truck and ship.

Students can also draw their head in the window of each vehicle. They will have fun with this!

The PREVIEW shows all pages included.

The pages of the book are not numbered giving the teacher flexibility of removing pages not desired when using in small guided reading groups for differentiation. 

This 13 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. 

Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page giving details about each picture shown. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities. 

***This is the sixth of 100 emergent readers for popular sight words (high frequency words) in the works. The readers will build on the words focused on in the previous readers as much as possible. 

ELACCKRF1a. Follow words from left to right, top to bottom, and page-by-page.
ELACCKRF1d. Recognize and name all upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
ELACCKRF1b. Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters.
ELACCKRF1c. Understand that words are separated by spaces in print. ELACCKRF3a. Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or many of more frequent sounds for each consonant. 
ELACCKRF3c. Read common high-frequency words by sight. 
ELACCKRF4. Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding.

Skip Count by 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s, Snowflake Dot to Dot Math Activity
Jan
18
2018

This is a Snowflake-themed collection of Dot to Dot number puzzles. These are not your mother's dot to dots. They skip count by 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, and 10s, and most begin at various start points, increasing the challenge. 

Most of these puzzles have an "easy" and "hard" version. You can differentiate so that your early and accomplished learners can each have a meaningful challenge they can be successful at. 

Incorporate these puzzles into your number sense, operations, and patterning instruction and assessment. Use them in whole class instruction, as part of your math centers, or for a fun, and educational seasonal activity to do with your class.

As well, you can download my Free Teacher Package which explains how to use Dot to Dot puzzles with your class.

Click on the links to see how the Christmas Edition and the Halloween Edition work.

If you like this activity, please leave a rating and review. Leave your feedback to help me make these collections the best they can be. You can also visit RoyWPReed.com to see what else I've been working on. 

Thanks,

Roy

Dottoo Dots grew out of my research into the patterning strand of mathematics and the inherent presence of patterns in everything we do in math. Work out the pattern, join the dots that fit the pattern, and reveal the picture.

I have been teaching for over 20 years. I have a specialist in reading and I'm working on my specialist in mathematics. Currently, I teach Special Education and the arts.

I have always been an innovator, and curious about how we learn. I have presented my research and resources about patterning and number sense at several OAME (Ontario Association of Mathematics Educators) conferences. My products are a practical mix of classroom experience, current educational research, and curriculum guidelines.

I am currently developing one resource that explains how to use patterns to teach concepts in other strands, and another that turns spelling and reading instruction on its head.

Follow my blog at roywpreed.com to see what I've been working on.
