Logic problems are a fun way to keep kids engaged, especially at the end of the year. My store is packed with these that may be purchased for a dollar a piece or in bulk for a discounted price. Why not plan ahead and take care of all the holidays at once with one of my logic problems to last the year packets.
This original packet was made to challenge students in third through fifth grades, but some of these problems are tough and most likely would meet the needs of older students in the regular classroom.
The booklet contains twelve logic problems from the first day of school until the Tired Teachers at the end. Along the way, students will tackle challenges centered around Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas (2), Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, April Fools Day, Easter, and Mother’s Day. Right now it’s set at a reduced price of $8.75, so please check it out. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Logic-Problems-to-Last-the-School-Year-IG-1264788
If you teach younger kids, no worries, I have the materials for your kids, too, with Logic Problems to Last the Year (Book II) for grades 1 – 3. This mini version of the original book contains six logic problems surrounding the holidays of Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and our American Independence Day. These matrix logic problems contain one grid to challenge our bright younger students, but once again, they could also challenge an older child in the regular classroom. Book II sells for the reduced price of only $3.95.

So this week we will be using my latest product. I have just finished a Science / ELA unit on WATER. I am currently finishing up one on SOIL, and hope to have the one on AIR done by next week. These are units that I have been using for years and I am just pretty’ing them up for TPT. I included some levelled readers and some levelled reading passages too. There are writing activities and also some Science experiments. There are lots of visual aids like word wall cards and photo cards.
if you want to check out your own copy.Here’s a preview of what’s included.
Looking for Earth Day activities?
This free Earth Day activity will give your students a deeper understanding of what it means to reuse, reduce, and recycle.
Reuse, Reduce, Recycle
These three vocabulary pages are meant to teach these three words deeply.The first time I use one of these Earth Day activities, I complete the vocabulary page with my students. I like to model technology, so I show my students how to use an online dictionary or thesaurus.
Students can then use these pages as a springboard for writing about ways they can reduce, reuse, and recycle.
This free Earth Day printable is an ideal writing template for primary students. Entitled ‘Ways Kids Can Help The Earth’, and divided into three sections, its versatility lends itself to a number of uses.
Perhaps you’d like your students to demonstrate an understanding of the three ‘R’s. Whether they use stickers, cut-outs or drawing, they may end up with something like this:
It can be a graphic organizer (see link below for more graphic organizers like this one!), a stand-alone assignment or planner for a piece of writing:
It could even be a brainstormed list of ideas, contract of sorts, pre or post assessment piece:
And of course, there are always those who finish first. A drawing page for early finishers, and a vocabulary list for those who need one, are also included.
Happy Earth Day, everyone!
