"Fraction-Of" a Turkey Freebie & Something New!

Hi friends! I wanted to share a fun freebie I made just in time for Thanksgiving. Students count and color the fraction of the turkey's circles. Simple and fun!  Grab it in my TpT store HERE.
While I'm logged in to my blog, I can't resist telling you about a neat interactive math window flap math vocabulary product I uploaded just uploaded now.  It's for 4th grade and includes 280 vocabulary words all organized and color coded (of course!).  I included the word, the definition and space for students to draw and write an example that shows they know the word meaning.  It's designed to be fast to cut and glue into student notebooks. Take a peek at one of the pages and see what you think.  For more capable students, you can choose not to use the pre-printed definitions and have students write their own definitions.  Personally, I want students to know the exact meaning.  I'm most interested in how they can show understanding of the word by writing or drawing an example.  Click HERE to see the Flap Book in my TpT store.

Enjoy teaching the language of math!

My November Pinterest Pick 3 ~ A FUN Linky

Hi friends!  I'm linking up with Lisa at Pawsitively Teaching or this fun Pinterest Linky sharing my favorite November Top 3 Pinterest picks.  For this linky, I focused my pins on fun ideas to use with students in grades 3 - 6.
I love giving students a break from the rigor of academics with some art.  This is a fun still life Indian corn drawing project that would make a beautiful wall display.  It goes without saying that I'd integrate some writing into to go with it.  :)

My #2 pick for November is a free Reader's Theater for grades 4-6.  It offers nine parts.  I love Reader's Theater!  It gives students a chance to read orally and develop confidence with public speaking at the same time.

The next Thanksgiving pin is from my blogger buddy, Layla from Fancy Free in Fourth.  Layla's creation is a persuasive writing (and possibly speaking) where students take the point of view of the turkey and persuade the farmer not to shoot him.  How fun is that?  This is a one-latte priced item in Layla's TpT store.

What ideas to you have for making Thanksgiving month fun and engaging?
