Five for Friday Weekly Linky Parties

Five for Friday Weekly Linky Parties

Five for Friday, March 27, 2015
I am linking up with  Doodble Bugs Teaching and Giving You My Five for Friday! 

1. Technology! 
This week our county sent people into every classroom at our school to observe how technology was being integrated into the curriculum. 
I got wonderful remarks! 
My students were using iPads to create an addition or subtraction problem (MCC.1.OA1-8 Standards). Students used the Number Frames FREE app to create a problem. Then I recorded them using the video option on my iPad explaining their work. What a great time we had learning. 
I will be creating this lesson for you to purchase soon in my TPT store.
Here is one example for you to look at.

2. Splash Math! 

Splash Math is a great app and online tool to use while teaching and assessing Common Core Math Standards. Currently Splash Math is offering FREE access to the full version until May 10th. There is a competition going on across the nation. 
I am proud to state that my Firsties are in 1st Place!!!! 
I am very competitive so I hope we stay in first place.
If you would like to sign up, please use this link.

If you would like to sign up for this FREE product! Please e-mail me at and I will send you the link.

3. Fractions Using Bunny Mallows 

I usually find these at Target for .99 cents. I have created a fun fraction activity you can do with these. Then I let students create their own pictograph and write their own questions to go along with their graph.

Here are some student samples! 

4. Pet Rabbit Research Interactive Brochure

We researched pet rabbits using and then completed this Interactive Brochure that accompany's this lesson. You don't need access to to complete this activity, but if you do, it makes it even better.

1. Data Analysis
Today I spend most my day in data analysis. My students took a 3rd quarter benchmark test in the area of Reading/ELA and Math. I analyzed the data and then we compared kids across to grade level to determine their growth. Looking at growth between quarters is a new thing we started this school year. For those students who fall below the 50% mark, we are tagging them as needing interventions (tutoring, EIP, etc.). This is a great way to provide supports to all levels of learners. I have a great product available in my store for grammar test review! 

2. Daily Timed Test for Math Fluency 
FREE APP (to a point) called Timed Test Free 
Full Version: Time Test Arcade

(Addition and Subtraction)

I have students take their test daily. I have 11 iPads so this usually takes 10 min. I set up the test in the following manner: 
Time: 5 min.  100 problems
Easy Add: 0-10
Hard Add: 0-20

These two require the FULL VERSION APP
Easy Subtraction: 0-10
Hard Subtraction: 0-20

I track the students scores and they can earn a Skittle if they increase their score from the day before. 
I even started having the students track their own scores too.

3. Magnets Lapbook
This is one of my best selling products! I started this project this week with my class and I plan on finishing it next week. You can check it out here: 

4. I Love Technology! 
This is an app called, Number Frames. 
It is also FREE!
Here are some student samples where you can see how we used this app to do the following: 
skip count
add two numbers
add three numbers

Now, I am having the students create samples of them subtracting using this app too. Then we are making short video clips of the student teaching how to accomplish this task. I'll get that video and try to post it on my blog.

5. St. Patrick's Day
We had an awesome time celebrating St. Patrick's Day! 
I read Silly McGilly and Jaime and the Big Potato. The leprechaun came to our classroom and made a huge mess! He messed up our book center and put glitter EVERYWHERE :)
We read close reading passages about leprechauns, made predictions, found the conclusion, sequenced stories and retold stories. In writing we used our own imagination and wrote stories about If a Leprechaun Came to Our School...
You can find this in my packet for sale 

Then I am trying to get my students to bring their stories alive through digital storytelling using the now FREE app, which is awesome because I paid a lot of money for the full version of this app, called Toontastic.

You can get the app here:

Well, That is my Five for Friday! Please stop by each and every Friday to hear about my awesome week in the classroom.
