5 Geometry Freebie Finds!
This week in my room we are finishing up our geometry unit and going to be focusing on multiplication/division strategies. As of now I have spent my $250 allotted classroom budget and now I'm on a poor man's mission-to find geometry review strategies for the week in preparation for our test. I think I did pretty well for having empty pockets. Check them out!
#1 on the list is a geometry matching/sorting activity
#2 an AMAZING review PowerPoint. 87 slides of magic. Very informational and real life!
#3 is this little gem here. A concentration game over lines. Who knew lines could be so exciting!?
#4 is a freebie from Dana at 3rd Grade Gridiron and it is an angles center
#5 Lets not forget symmetry! We did symmetric butterflies last week but next year I'm putting these beauties on my list- symmetric boots. My kids would have LOVED these.
Tomorrow is going to be so fun in math. I can hardly wait! Not to mention all of these goodies are so eye appealing they will make your heart melt.
On another note I have several students confused the j sound with the g sound last week when I met with individuals for monthly benchmarks. MAJOR TISK TISK. However I'm happy to say all but 3 of my students are now reading at a third grade level! Compared to the 6 I started with (that were below). I'm on cloud nine! The Reading Gods must be looking down on us.
Hope everyone has an amazing week. I love having Mondays off to work.. off work to work. Not really sure if that makes sense.
