It's hard to believe December starts tomorrow! For the first time since I can remember, I actually got to RELAX this year on my little 2 1/2 days off. Our district is sending home report cards the week after next so I took full advantage. I ate, I exercised, I cleaned, I decorated, and I added to my Cyber Monday wishlist over on TPT. That's right, Teachers Pay Teachers is once again having their Cyber Monday (plus Tuesday) sale on December 1st and 2nd! You can save up to 28% off of your purchases by entering promo code TPTCYBER at checkout. My whole store will be a full 28% off as long as you remember the promo code!
I'm linking up with Jivey to share with you some of my own products that are on a lot of people's wishlist right now, as well as one that's in my own wishlist. One thing I have in my own wishlist are these gift tags from Creative Clips. So cute!
Here are a few items from my own store that are in high demand and have kept my own students engaged in their learning each year during the second trimester:
This Long Division Games Bundle provides students with the repeated practice they need to internalize the long division process. By turning this practice into games and hands on activities, the kids actually enjoy honing their long division skills!
Like the division bundle, this Equivalent Fractions Activities 3 in One Bundle is hands on, and helps students enjoy their math block.
If you're looking for a more complete fractions unit, I am launching my finished FRACTIONS UNIT on Monday, just in time for the sale. This product has been months in the making, and I wanted my readers to have the opportunity to get the maximum savings on it. Check out my most recent product and save 28%!
If you really want to plan ahead, Poetry Month is traditionally in April. This is the time to save big on a complete poetry unit for fourth grade. It has everything you need for high stakes test prep. This Fourth Grade Poetry Mini Unit helps students meet the standards while also providing opportunities for creativity and appreciation for a variety of poetic forms.
And finally, if you're looking for my best deal, you can save 28% on my largest bundle, my 5 US Regions Unit Plans Bundle. Normally priced $25, it will cost just $18.75 for two days only!
So start filling your wishlist, and come back Monday and Tuesday to save a bundle on some fun, engaging resources for your class.
1. Tissue box hygiene reminders. I rubber-band these to each tissue box in my classroom as a not so subtle reminder! If you have a sink in your classroom, the place to hang a reminder is not over the sink (where they are already washing their hands). It's on the tissue box itself. Slow the spread of germs this flu season!
2. Holiday Aid for Low Income Students Here's a seasonal freebie for your class. It's designed to help target assistance for your lower income students if you have funds from the PTO to provide them with a little something for the holiday. I'm lucky enough to work in a school where we give to the families in need every year, and this page will help you get started with that.
3. Mentor Sentences for Complete Sentences. Many grammar tasks ask kids to find what needs to be fixed in a sentence. As a result, kids are exposed to models of incorrect writing! Stop reinforcing models of common grammatical errors. Mentor sentences require them to analyze quality, model writing, then explain what makes it so.
Kinesthetic Map Activity. This is a fun whole group activity that gets kids practicing continents, countries and directions. It's not every day you let your fourth graders crawl around on the floor to learn, but I think you'll like this one as much as they do.
Using one half as a benchmark coloring page. This coloring page reveals a "mystery picture" as kids determine if each fraction is greater to, less than, or equal to one half. The writing component allows you to differentiate as well as gives students practice justifying their answer.
