Wow, it's been awhile! I've been in the zone with two new products that I've been working on like crazy, so I've been a little out of the loop! It will still be a few weeks until they're ready, because I still need to try them out on my students.
However, I did come up with a little something to share with you. I recently received an email from my principal about all of the things going on these last 7 weeks of school (not that I'm counting), and we are really going to be busy. It looks like there will be at least one or two extra things a week that we will be doing-field trips, band concerts, PTO meetings, field day, and on and on. One of the extra events is our book fair, and I have to admit that I probably get more excited than my students about the book fair, and I know I spend way too much money! I can't help it-I LOVE books! Since I'm always looking for a way to tie math into my students' interests, I created a little math activity for my students to complete during the book fair. It should be fairly easy for my third graders, but I don't think they can get too much money, addition, and subtraction practice. I also like having my students see how these math skills are used in everyday life. Just click on the picture for your copy!
