Hocus Pocus Part 2

We all know teachers are magic, but it seems that this time of year, our magical powers need a little extra umph and a maybe even an ABRACADABRA to get us to that last day of school!  So, I teamed up with some amazing intermediate bloggers to create some magic of our own!  You may recall that a couple of weeks ago, we joined forces to swap some of our favorite resources, armed with the goal of putting a little extra magic in our lessons and keeping our students engaged during these final weeks of the school year.

As promised, we’re all back today with Part 2 of our blog hop giveaway – the big reveal – viola!
I love this product! Seriously, I love it!
I used it as a warm-up for my science lessons.  I had my students keep it in their morning work folder, and they completed it in the morning before class started.
I made sure to choose science topics we had already studied so that my students would be able to answer the questions independently. I thought that the review questions were challenging, but not too challenging. I really liked that they forced my students to think about their responses. The first week I had students complete the Observations and Inferences Warm-up. Next year, I plan to spend a little more time teaching students HOW I want the questions answered, because I would like for them to be a little more thorough in their responses.
The second week, students completed the Properties of Matter Warm-ups. I was really surprised at which questions stumped my class. I definitely found a few things that I needed to spend a little extra time reviewing. 


I was also very happy that even though it was the very end of the year for my students, they were engaged and focused on the warm-ups. They were short and sweet, which helped keep everyone on task! But, they were also concise and to the point, which helped me review a significant amount of content in a short amount of time.  I'm so glad to have the chance to check these out, because I want to start the year with them next year!

Now to our second round of magic giveaway!  We decided to switch things up a bit by having several winners this time around!   In fact, 14 classrooms will receive a little magic for their own classrooms!  Each of the blogs featured below will be giving their prize to a different winner!
