Castles Make Geometry Fun!

If you're looking for a hands-on math lesson for geometry, may I suggest building castles? I taught this lesson for the first time recently, and it was so much fun! You can see the pictures and read all about it over on my blog. You can also grab a free table your students can use to record their information during the lesson. Don't worry if you don't have shape patterns, because I'll point you to a free website where you can grab some!

Blank Review Flash Cards

Do you need to review some skills before a test?  Want to do that in a more exciting way? 

How about using these cards to create review cards? Play "I Have, Who Has", or create flashcards that your students can use to play games with in partner groups or in larger groups. 

This is a blank copy of the one I used to make a review for our social studies part of our state test.  The possibilities are endless, really.

Common Core Math for Third Grade

I know this is a 3-6 blog, but this freebie exclusively for third grade was too good to leave out. Tessa from Tales from Outside the Classroom makes Common Core math packs for the primary grades. She just uploaded her third grade pack this week. While you can purchase the entire packet from her store, she has provided four pages absolutely free. I love the layout, spiral review, and Common Core connection. They are definitely worth taking a look at!

Probability Foldable Freebie

We've just begun our last Topic (Chapter) in math.  It covers probability.  This is not new, but it is a lot to remember for my fourth graders.

I created a foldable for them to use as a reference tool.  They glued these into their math notebooks and added their own notes to them, too. 

Here's a picture of the foldable:

This is the inside of the foldable:
