I am linking up with my bestie Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried it Tuesday!! Check out her post about Powerpoint ;)
As a new 4th grade teacher, I wish I had another team member (I am the only 4th grade teacher at my school) to have helped me with test prep, but I think I have done a pretty good job doing what I can :) I have gotten lots of things from the internet, TPT/TN, and fun online activities.
What I really needed were science materials.. let's face it, science = experimentation! And the kids LOVE it! Here is a picture of the balance scale that I bought from Lakeshore Learning-I bought all my supplies there including the balance, a simple machines kit, magnet kit, and electricity kit.
Primary Teacherhood has this wonderful Water Cycle product out on her store... a concept that can needs to be reinforced with multiple grades. Click here to check it out!
I have also tried to make my own products!! Click on each product if you want to check it out :)
And then there's my baby, my science task cards - which covers almost EVERY topic in 4th grade NYS science :] These include reading comprehension, but your students will only be able to complete these if they use their inferencing skill and prior knowledge as well.
Sooo.. how did I do? I mostly created these products for my own students, but I thought that maybe you guys could use them too :) I am giving away ALL FOUR PRODUCTS to one lucky winner!! Please enter using the rafflecopter below :) Giveaway ends Thursday at midnight!
I also wanted to touch on the point that I mostly advertise for Teachers Pay Teachers, but I hope many of you are also using Teacher's Notebook!! Both websites are wonderful and the people are great. Teacher's Notebook has been so good to me this year and helping me build my sales and advertisements. I actually will be having an amazing Teacher's Notebook giveaway VERY Soon ;) So keep your eyes peeled for that!!!
