Earth Day!

Earth Day is quickly approaching. I know if you're like me and your end of year testing is still coming up, Earth Day may be pretty far from the forefront of your mind! However, I also try to take a quick opportunity to explain to the students what Earth Day is about. I have to give props to my school because we are pretty Earth conscious. Each classroom has a place for the students to recycle paper. I usually like to show a quick video. Here are a couple I found on youtube that you might like!                            

Here is a BrainPop Site that has several videos for free about the Earth. Click Here for Brain Pop.

This year I also made these bookmarks for my students for Earth Day! They are free to download.       Get the Earth Day Bookmarks here! 

What are some things you will be doing for Earth Day in your classroom? 

Relating Fraction to Decimals

With TCAP drawing near I have been reviewing some key concepts with my students to make sure that they will be successful on this important test. (TCAP is Tennessee's end of year standardized test.) One of the things I really wanted to review with my students was fractions and decimals. In 4th grade the students need to know how to convert fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions. After reviewing concepts I love for the students to play some type of game with partners to help reinforce what was just reviewed or taught. Here is the matching game that my students played.
You can get this cute game here. It is $1.50 in my TPT store. 

I also ask my students to have 3 fraction to decimal conversions memorized: 1/4 = 0.25, 1/2 = 0.50, and 3/4 = 0.75. When teaching these I tell my students to think of these decimals like money. There are 4 quarters in a dollar. If I have 1 of the 4 quarters how much money do I have? 25 cents... etc. To also help them memorize it I have it hanging in the bathroom over the sink. (It gives them some reading material.) Lastly, I  made these super cute bookmarks for them to use. The book marks are free and you can get them here.

I hope you enjoy!
