By Vicky Rauch of Scipi Products 

 When I taught third grade in an inner city school, I knew the children needed something to love, but being a city girl, my love of animals was deficient. That is when my husband helped me to set up an aquarium. I purchased a water heater, a bubblier, chemicals, plants, fish food, and of course the fish! Little did I know what effect this would have on my students.

Spelling Flip Book

Product Description

The Spelling Flip Book is designed to help young learners become familiar with spelling rules and to incorporate them into their work.

Students can color and personalize their flip books to enhance the spelling learning experience.

I always like encouraging my students to use their flip books as reference sheets when they are working to promote good spelling habits. The goal is that eventually, by using the flip book when working, the student will begin to remember common errors made in the past and correct them. I have had much success with this strategy in my classes.

I’ve also included a color copy and an answer key – a total of 18 pages.

It’s teaching made easy!

FREE MATH LESSON – “FREE Weekly Word Problems May {4th Grade Edition}”

by Ashleigh

3rd – 5th Grade

Weekly Word Problems are my absolute FAVORITE way to teach word problems! These word problems have become an essential component to my classroom instruction!
***************************************************************************
Weekly Word problems allow students to practice their word problem skills each day. The May version contains a mixture of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division word problems, and all operations include larger numbers that require students to apply their computation skills. In this activity, students solve 3 word problems a day, and on Fridays they write their own word problem for a specific operation. There are 4 weeks worth of word problems in this product. All of the word problems have spring or summer related theme. An answer key is included.

***************************************************************************
What’s Included
Since I want my students to be able to solve the word problems independently, the August word problems are primarily a review of third grade math. In September, students begin to add and subtract larger 4-digit numbers, while the multiplication and division problems are centered around basic math facts. I add larger multiplication problems in the October version, and by November students are multiplying 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers and 2-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers. I’ve also added 3-digit division problems, as well as a few multi-step word problems!

You can buy a bundle for the entire year here!
