Women’s History Bio-Texts


Fun! Effective! Timely! Modern! Easy to Use!

Improve comprehension and spelling while learning about Women’s History!

Great for homework, seat work, and learning centers!

These eight short biographies of high-achieving women resemble cell phone texts. The students are provided the complete wording with blanks for most of the vowels that they then must supply.

This variation of the cloze technique, accepted by reading authorities as an effective strategy, requires students to recognize sentence structure and meaning as a way of improving comprehension. Spelling practice with vowels is an added feature!

FREE MATH LESSON – “Comparing Fractions – Snowman/Winter Activities Freebie”

by Talented in Third

3rd – 4th Grade

Winter Math Activity: Do your students struggle to compare fractions? Do they need a fun, motivating, hands-on way to look at fractions? This freebie has students comparing fractions by coloring in the snowman fractions and then deciding which one is greater.

There are two different versions of this freebie. The color version starts on page 4 and goes through page 5. The black and white version starts on page 3 and goes through page 4. To complete, students will need to color in each fraction shown above each snowman. This will mean students need a basic understanding of what a fraction is before completing this activity.

Some possible ways to use this product:

• Use the color version as a center/laminate to use again and again.

• Use the black and white version as independent work/practice before a lesson.

• Use the black and white version as an assessment to see how students are doing during your fractions unit.

• Use either version at your teacher table as a small group lesson.

There is a set of 2 pages (black and white or color) that are purposely identical to reflect different ways of asking the question/allow you as a teacher to differentiate to meet the needs of your students. The first is the basic question of comparing which is greater, the second requires students to use the symbolic symbols of greater than (>), less than (<), or equal to (=).
