Holiday Treats and Resource Binder

Here is a look at my holiday math work stations.  The five games are bundled together for $5.00.  I placed the bundle on sale through tomorrow night for $3.00.  For more information and previews link here.

Did you hear about my states notebook?  The kids have enjoyed learning about the different states from our postcard exchange.  I take my students on a webquest for information.  The links are provided in the file.  We check out the state, flag, seal, quarter, motto, nickname, capital, bird, flower, rank, year the state entered the union, famous people from the state, and additional fun facts.  After our quest, the kids complete a notebook page for their resource binder.  The 111 page file is a free download here.

My kids use the resource binder for everything.  Here are a few pictures of how we use our binders...

Book List

 Words available in my resource binder download.

 Personal Houghton Mifflin focus walls are available in my store for free.
Narrative Expectations, Rubrics, and Checklist

Weather Journal available in my store for free!
 Grade accountability sheets in data notebook download.

My student data notebooks should not be confused with my DAN (Data Analysis Notebook) which contains class averages, graphs, benchmark grades, RtI documentation, safety nets, conference logs, running records, etc.  I maintain this folder weekly.  The data notebook download is for student accountability and has been very successful for my kids.
