Bejeweled is not my favorite, however. I really, really LOVE to play Boggle, so much so that it seems as if I've been attached to my Smartphone playing Scramble with Friends (Facebook's Boggle equivalent) all during break.
There are boards for every month of the school year as well as some special occasions. Just project them on a whiteboard or large screen TV, change the letters as you like and SNAP... instant Boggle game. You can read more about them or download them HERE. There's even a FREEBIE board to try out as well. You can check it out HERE.
HERE and see what my fifth graders will be learning and reviewing during the first week of January.
Homework Management System in a Winter Theme. I have it all printed and ready to start using on Monday morning.
If you've been following me for a little while you may remember when I blogged about my homework management system. You can read my original blog post HERE, but I've mentioned it in several other posts as well. I was in need of some new punch cards to record student homework assignment completion and my brag tag collection (small award tokens) was getting a bit thin before Christmas break. I needed to print more in time for classes this coming Monday. Rather than print some I had already created, I decided to whip up a brand new batch in a winter theme. Here are the three parts to the system.
NO HOMEWORK COUPONS
I am really happy with the way this packet turned out. So much so, that I'd like to give away one or two packets in the hope that you'll want to try this system with your students. Just leave a comment below including an email address and I'll pick a name (or two, depending on the number of comments) at random on Sunday night (Jan. 4th) and email you the packet.
Speaking of homework... sigh! I have homework, lots of it! Papers to grade, lessons to plan, masters to print and ready for xeroxing. Have I done it? Am I doing it? I did manage to unpack my teaching satchel and print a few pages... and there it lies! I do still have two more days to get it done, right?
