Are You Reviewing Fractions for Your State Tests?

Using I Have, Who Has? Cards for Reviewing Fractions on Your State Standardized Tests. Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas. 
Fractions on the Standardized Tests
I always found on the state tests the two or three problems dealing with fractions were always tricky. Try as you might to prepare your students for a strong background in fractions, missing one or two test questions due to TRICKY or POORLY WRITTEN questions is not fair to students, not fair to teachers and not what the original point of testing was all about. But it is the way of the world right now, so the better prepared your students are, the better the chance they have at being successful.
Research shows the more you review with hands-on centers and games, the more your students will retain the information. Task cards, Scoot, I Have, Who Has? Games all keep your students up and moving. Their body AND brain are actively engaged.

Gold or Silver Oreo Cookie Coins for St. Patrick's Day

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Gold or Silver Oreo Cookie Coins for some St. Patrick's Day Fun in your Classroom!
Turning Oreo Cookies Into Silver and Gold Coins For St. Patrick's Day

** Throwback Thursday Rerun Fun **

Pinterest has some great pictures of Oreo Cookies painted gold for St. Patrick's Day. I put one of those pictures on my Facebook wall to share with my readers and the questions started....Have you done this? Did it dry quickly? Did it taste good?

Well, all good questions, I didn't know. So we went to the store and looked, and looked, annnnd looooked for the gold color mist that was on Pinterest. 

However, we couldn't find any gold in our area, so we did the experiment with silver, a silver coin, close enough!
Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Gold or Silver Oreo Cookie Coins for some St. Patrick's Day Fun in your Classroom!

All you need are Oreo Cookies and Wilton Color Mist Spray! My children are 18 and 21, so this little experiment's results are for four adults. We sprayed the cookies, it was very simple, then the 18 year old immediately ate one, yucky, it was still wet and he said it tasted like "paint fumes" well...yeah, you were suppose to let it dry!

So we sprayed some more and let them dry over night and it is true, you can't taste the coloring. However, four out of four adults at our house agree that it masks the chocolate taste of the cookie part a little different. I would recommend doing this with your students, the spray is soooooo easy to use. But putting them up overnight before they eat them. You kids will just be so excited to be eating a St. Patrick's Day coin!

Needing Some Simple Seatwork and Assessments for Division Word Problems?

 Word Problems For Dividing By One From Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Available at TeacherspayTeachers.

When it comes to test prep and word problems, our students need repetition to become successful. They need to read, read, read and read some more to gain confidence. As much as I HATE the over-testing of our students, word problems, TOO MANY word problems are a reality of their testing world. The more confident they are, they WILL read the word problem and try their best. I have started a new line of word problems for division and multiplication for third and fourth grade teachers. 
 Word Problems For Dividing By One From Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Available at TeacherspayTeachers.
These new word problem resources for 3rd grade math include:
* Pretest Assessment {Pre-Test}

* Posttest Assessment {Post-Test}
* All Answer Keys Are Included!

Suggested Weekly Lesson Plans
MONDAY: Give the students the pre-test to assess their previous knowledge. Student self grade or teacher grade and return. Give each student a set of the black and white task cards and a baggie. They can complete the 12 task cards and place them into the baggie to take home. Another suggestion is that they cut the 12 cards out in class and complete them at home.
TUESDAY: Give SHEET #1 as bell work, class work, small group work, center work, etc. Use the color version of the task cards at your math center, during math rotation, small group work or RTI one on one review for Tuesday through Thursday.
WEDNESDAY: Give SHEET #2 as bell work, class work, small group work, center work, etc. Students can even self correct these sheets by putting the answers up on your board digitally or a simple as the actual piece of paper by the pencil sharpener, water fountain, etc.
THURSDAY: Give SHEET #3 as bell work, class work, small group work, center work, etc.
FRIDAY: Give the students the post-test for your grade book. Students should show extreme success because they have been given the exact same problems all week.

Talk about something HIGH INTEREST that the students love to learn about! Social Studies, Reading and Community Awareness all rolled into one!

Social Studies, Reading and Community Awareness all rolled into one which many students already have previous knowledge of, and therefore are very successful!

Community Helpers!
Next, explain to them that a community helper is anyone who provides a service. Get as many community helpers listed as they know, police, dentist, mail carrier, etc.  Then as the lesson continues or as the week rolls by, you can have them add the new ones they learn about to the chart. One of the very best things about studying community helpers is that the students are so excited, their large word, extended vocabulary expands by leaps and bounds.

Next in the lesson, read one of these terrific books to expand their knowledge of community helpers.

  • Draw a picture of their favorite community helper.
  • Cut out magazine pictures of their favorite community helpers and create a collage.
  • Write a letter thanking one of their favorite community helpers.
  • Create a news interview with a community helper.
  • Role Play their favorite community helper and have other students guess who they are.
