The Three Little Pigs is about a wolf who wants nothing more than to eat three little pigs. Now, think about the wolf in the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. After thinking about the two characters, tell how the two wolves are alike. Afterwards, tell how they are different. Use supporting details from both stories to support your answer.
In your answer, be sure to

These pages are great for students who have difficulty with spacing and lining up their numbers.
I made this chart to improve behavior management with one of my smaller groups in upper elementary. This is just a photo of what I handed out to my students. The download below is a blank MS Word document ready for editing. I only meet with this group 4 days/week, but the download also includes a template for 5 days.
I informed the students we would be coming up with a list of rules/guidelines as well as a list of consequences and rewards. Afterwards, I typed up an agreement/contract including the ideas we'd come up with and asked them to sign it.
Finally, I stapled their contracts to the back of these incentive charts to remind them of the behavior they agreed to. They receive a check-mark for each rule they uphold daily, when they don't receive a consequence and when they are caught being a leader. X-marks are when they are unable to follow the guidelines and when they receive a warning for their behavior. Keep in mind that 3 warnings = an automatic consequence and X-marks cancel out check-marks which is why they are subtracted at the bottom.
25 points = their choice of one of the rewards we agreed upon (special snacks, lunch with me and a friend of their choice, treasure box choice, etc.)
I encourage the students to fill out the boxes at the bottom at the end of the week, but it's completely optional. If they are left blank, I sometimes write my own comments for the girls to see the following week.
I attach a new sheet each week so it's easier to track their behavior and points. My students are responsible for giving themselves checks and X-marks throughout the lesson, but I go back and double check that they have been keeping accurate score.

Social Studies / Community Studies Lesson that asks students to draw a picture of each community and describe what specific things you can find in each community.
Responses should be somewhere along the lines of:
Urban Communities have: big city buildings, lots of trains, buses, cars, people, etc.
Rural Communities have: farms, animals, few people, lots of land, tractors, etc.
Suburban Communities have: lots of houses, few big buildings, less people than urban communities, etc.

Rounding Numbers and Estimating Sums by The Teacher Treasury, LLC. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.
This lesson requires students to round 2 - 5 digit numbers to the nearest Tens, Hundreds and Thousands Place.
Students are also asked to estimate the sum or 3 - 4 digit numbers.
The lesson also includes the following word problems which ask students to round their answers to the nearest Tens Place:
1. The students in Mr. Marshall’s class all have different reading books in their desks. Ahmad has 12, Jackie has 7, Michael has 5, Kendra has 11 and Patricia has 6. Estimate the number of books they have in total.
2. Sarah's father has a huge movie collection. She counted 5,458 movies. About how many movies would you say her father has if you round to the nearest tens place?
3. Mrs. King has 44 students in her class. She has more than any other teacher in the school. Ms. Black comes close with 39 students, but Mr. Anthony only has 27. Estimate the number of students in those three classes. Round your answer to the nearest tens place.
4. There are 365 days in a year. Estimate the number of days in the year to the nearest tens place.
This can either be used as a homework assignment, in-class practice, quiz or test.
Hope this helps =)

1 snack pack of M&M candies (per student)
My students ALWAYS love this lesson!
I've successfully completed this activity with 2nd, 4th and 5th grade classes.
This activity can be done in 8+ Steps.
The provided steps include:
Step 1: Before you open your bag of M&M candies, guess the total number of M&Ms in the package.
Step 2: Open your package and count the total number of M&Ms.
Step 3: What fraction represents the number of each color candy in your pack?
Step 4: Answer the following questions:
1. Which color M&M represents the largest fraction?
2. Which color M&M represents the smallest fraction?
Step 5: Eat one of each color M&M.
Step 6: What fraction represents the number of each color candy in your pack?
Step 7: Answer the following questions:
3. If you give 2 red M&Ms to your teacher, what fraction of your remaining M&Ms will be RED?
4. Write the fraction that represents the number of M&Ms that are
5. Which color M&M represents the largest fraction?
6. Which color M&M represents the smallest fraction?
Step 8: Eat all of your M&Ms.
For 2nd graders and SPED classes, the directions were always read aloud and we completed the entire activity together step by step.
With smaller 4th and 5th grade classes, I allowed students to complete the entire worksheet on their own as I would go around the room checking on their progress and understanding.
With larger classes, I would recommend having students pair up in groups of 2 to complete the assignment together. Each student should still receive their own pack of M&Ms and their own worksheet, but the following additional steps should be taken to ensure that all students understand the concept of fractions, numerators, denominators, etc.
--> Before students begin, instruct them to STOP and put their pencils down after STEP 3. Once all (or the majority) of the students have completed STEP 3, call on various students and ask them the following questions:
1. What fraction of your M&Ms are (color)? How do you know?
2. Does that color represent the numerator or the denominator?
3. What is a numerator?
4. What does the denominator represent?
5. Which color M&M represents the largest fraction? How do you know?
6. Which color M&M represents the smallest fraction? How do you know? (You could also ask another student: "Is he/she correct?"
Before allowing students to complete STEP 4, instruct them to answer the 2 question in STEP 4 and when finished do the following:
1. Put your pencil down, stand up and push in your chair
2. When both you and your partner have completed STEP 4 and are both standing with your chair pushed in, switch seats.
3. Sit down and DO NOT TOUCH your partner's M&Ms.
4. Review their answers in STEP 3 AND STEP 4 by looking at their group of M&Ms
5. Circle any incorrect answers.
6. When both you and your partner are finished reviewing STEP 3 & 4, discuss your incorrect answers. If you disagree on a fraction, raise your hand and ask the teacher to review the work.
7. When you have finished reviewing the answers, put your pencils down, stand up and return to your seat to complete STEPS 5-7.
After students have completed STEP 7, they should repeat the review process after STEP 4.
Finally, they can all eat their M&Ms.
Hope this helps =)

All of my students loved this game! I used it as our routine activity between lessons for grades 2-5. Once students get the hang of it, one round game can take less than 5 minutes.
Once a student yells "SCATTERGORIES", I would make everyone put their pencil down and that person would have to stand up and reveal their answers in each category to confirm their win.
I would often reward winners with stickers, treats and small prizes.
You can also use this game to spark dialogue within the classroom. Ask other students to confirm the people, places, songs, movies, books, authors, etc. mentioned by their classmates. If few students know very much about the given responses, it's a great opportunity for the student who selected that answer to teach his/her classmates about that particular person, place, object etc.

The coloring pages featured on this site include awesome quotes to keep your kiddos motivated!
"This pack includes a sweet little activity I did as part of my annual evaluation this year. After learning about 2D and 3D shapes, we build them using toothpicks and marshmallows! Each student was given a plate, toothpicks and marshmallows and allowed to let their creativity flow! This lesson allows students to think critically and covers several common core Geometry standards. I’ve also included some shape building cards that I used as needed with some of my struggling students who needed more support. The student can look at the shape first, then build it."
Each pair of cherries has 2 cherries. Skip count by 2s to find the sum.
Students are asked to skip count by 2s up to groups of 10.
For more advanced students, I recommend having them write
a repeated addition and/or multiplication sentence
to represent each question.

This 29 page download includes 5 activities or centers with printable worksheets and coin manipulative cards. These activities are aligned with CCSS 2.MD.8. Scaffolding, Extension, and alternative variations to these activities are offered in the teacher instructions.
Please note when you print out the coin cards if you print the front and back the value of the coin will be on the back of the coins. There are 8 pages of 8 coin cards.
The center activities include:
Concentration- print out as many coin cards and values as appropriate for your group. For this game do not print the coins and values front to back. Students lay out the cards face down. Partners take turns turning over cards to match the amount of coins with the value.
Quiz Quiz Trade– Print the coin cards on page 4-19 front to back. Cut them apart and give one to each student. Have students quiz each other to see if they can count the correct amount. Partners then trade cards and find a new partner.
War– Give students one set (page 4-19 front to back, cut out). Students split all the cards between each other. Each partner turns over one card at a time. The student with the larger total takes both cards. Continue playing until one person is out of cards. If there is a tie, both partners lay down three cards face down, then turn the fourth over, the person with the highest fourth card takes all
cards played that turn.
Draw and Add– Using the additional handout on page 20 and 23 on the back to show their work. Students will work in partners. Each student will draw one card at a time. Partners have to add their coin amounts together. (This activity could be done individually, student would just draw two cards.) Extension– Roll, Draw, and Add. Same routine except roll a dice. Student draws that many cards and adds them together.
Draw and Subtract– Using the additional handout on page 21 and 23 on their back to show their work. Students will work in partners. Each student will draw one card at a time. Each individual will find the values of their coins. Partners will subtract the smaller value from the larger value. (This activity could be done individually, student would just draw two cards.)
Ordering Coins– Give each student or pair of students a sheet of coins. Use page 23-24 Have each individual or partnership calculate the total of each card on the sheet. Have students cut the cards apart and put them in order from least to greatest.
