I can't believe it is already time for another Monday Made It. Summer is flying by and that little fact hit me hard this past week. I need to get it in gear if I'm going to accomplish all the things I want to accomplish. My husband and I are going on vacation with his parents and siblings the week before school starts so I have to have everything ready a week early. I refuse to spend my vacation thinking too much about school.
Here are a few things I accomplish this past week.
I MADE it through the first week of a two week workshop on robotics. Over the course of the week I MADE my very own Wall-E and learned how to program him. The second week of the workshop involves programming Wall-E to complete a course. I'm a little nervous about that. Hopefully it goes well.
One of my big goals for the summer is to create some activities for early finishers. Think file folder games. I was excited to find a great little activity by Teresa called Pick and Flip. I was even more excited to discover that it was FREE. Yay! I made hers and then made a few of my own. I think this is something that I will continue to make throughout the school year as my students are introduced to new concepts.
I printed prime #s, composite #s, add up to 15, add up to 21, multiples of 7, and multiples of 9 from Teresa. I added multiples of 6, multiples of 8, and multiples of 12 myself.
I printed them on cardstock.
Cut them out.
Folded them in half.
And laminated them.
Students put clothespins on the appropriate squares and then flip the card to check their answers.
