March Math Skills Review for 2nd & 3rd Grades

Is it important to review Math Skills throughout the year? Yes! When we learn new information, we remember it best immediately after we’ve learned it. It is easy to forget skills, even just a few days or weeks after we’ve learned them. That is why it is important that we make time to have students review previously learned skills.

There are a lot of Math skills being taught in the 2nd and 3rd grades and these skills need to be repeatedly reinforced throughout the year.

For teachers looking to add some holiday flair to the review of Math skills in the month of March, I’ve created March Math Skills Review for 2nd & 3rd Grades with a St. Patrick’s Day theme!

Snowman Graphing for 2nd and 3rd Grades (Winter Math Activities)

wz 253 f

Looking for fun Winter Math activities? Check out my Snowman Graphing for 2nd and 3rd Grades unit. Your students will have fun creating unique ‘dressed’ snowmen. After all are complete, the graphing activity(ies) can begin!Great as a whole class activity, or in cooperative groups and/or centers. This has been created for 2nd and 3rd grades, however younger or older students might enjoy as well.

Directions (included in the download):

Snowman Activity Directions
(Students will have fun creating their own unique snowman!)
Distribute or place copies of the following snowman pages. On each page will be 1 snowman and several colored articles of clothing.
Students are to cut out each piece along with the snowman and then begin to create unique snowmen by gluing the clothing of their choice on to his/her snowman. (One page of this download provides the snowman template page without color. Use this page if you desire to have students color the article of clothes themselves.)

Snowman Graphing Directions
After all the snowmen have been created, work as a class to create a graph (or graphs) showing the articles of clothing (and their colors) that were used! This can be a very simple graph for younger students or can be multiple graphs displaying much greater detail. This download does provide some ‘simple and ready to use’ graphs for students if more
detailed ones are not assigned or demonstrated. Also included our uncolored articles of clothing which can be colored and used on the
provided graphs.

Ideas:
Use the first half of this activity (the creation of the snowmen) as a center activity.
Divide students up into cooperative groups and have them work to create a graph (or multiple graphs) of the snowmen created by group members.
Create a bulletin board around the activity displaying the snowmen as well as a graph (or graphs created).

Geography – USA Teaching Resources

Geography has always been a subject that I loved teaching, especially surrounding the USA. I also love when lessons can be made to cross over into other subject areas or become ‘hands-on’.

Over the last two weeks, I’ve created several NEW Geography related resources and I’m excited to share them with you!

All of these NEW resources are part of my Learning about the USA series…

wz 274 a

The 1st is a 150 page download which provides you 3 maps of each state:

* Blank outline
* Outline with State Capital
* Outline with Major Cities

This resource can be used in too many ways for me to list here but I’ll give you a few ideas…

* Cut out the blank outline and place on cardboard. Using homemade salt dough, students can create a 3-D relief map on top of the state outline, sculpting in rivers, mountains, etc. Once dry, have students paint them, green= land, brown= mountains, blue= rivers.

* Create a state book using the outlines. Students can do this by copying and cutting out several copies of the blank outline and one each of the others. The first blank outline will serve as the cover. Students can use each of the pages to create a fun book about the state.

* Using the outline maps with cities, ask students to add things such as major highways, historical landmarks, etc.

Also ready for you to download…

wz 273 e

These new resources can be used to create a variety of cross-curricular lessons and lead to hours of learning.

Learning about the U.S.A. – State Birds –

Why does each state in the U.S. have a state bird, a state flower or other state selected ‘thing’? As a teacher, I was once asked this very question. I didn’t know the answer but I went looking. This is what I found…It is done to instill a sense of local state pride and patriotism and is a holdover from the early days when states were almost independent countries.

So why have a study on ‘State Birds’? My answer: For the wide range of learning that will occur during such a study! That is why I’ve created a MEGA Bundle of materials designed to provide students with a creative way, an inspiring way, to study ‘State Birds’…

wz 278 a

As they are completing their studies, students will exercise valuable skills such as…

  • researching
  • reading to comprehend informational text
  • organizing information
  • disseminating information

They will also be completing a cross-curricular study combining the following…

  • Language Arts
  • Science
  • Geography

This BUNDLE contains over 700+ pages and covers all 50 states and more…

wz 278 B

wz 278 C

wz 278 D

Each state has 14 pages designed for students to write, draw and express what they are learning and/or have learned throughout their studies.

** Cross-curricular learning at it’s best. ** ​

Language Arts: reading, research and writing (Students will be expected to search out informational text to learn about each state bird. Multiple pages are giving for students to report what they have learned. Some pages include sections for drawing. Also included: Pages designed to be used for different age groups.)

Science: Scientific classification (A page is included for each state to list the Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species. Also a full coloring page is included if you’d like students to label the parts of each bird.)

Social Studies: Geography (2 map pages – One to identify the state and one for students to show everywhere in the U.S. the bird lives as well as any migration)

** Designed for multiple levels **

NEW Color & Create a Story Worksheets spark CREATIVITY!

Most children have a natural creative streak but sometimes it is hard for them to get an idea out of their heads and onto a piece of paper. That’s why I’m currently creating my NEW “Color & Create a Story” Worksheets.

These are all designed to spark children’s imagination by providing them a picture on which to base their story. First, your child (or students) will color a picture. Then, they are given space to create a story about the picture!

Here are several examples of my NEW worksheets:

All about the Circus – A Lapbooking Unit!

I recently had a member of the CHSH FB group ask about a Circus Lapbooking unit. She had looked everywhere (FB, Pinterest, TPT) and all she could find were a few worksheets and a whole lot of craft suggestions but not lapbook units. So I decided it was time to create one!

All About the Circus – Lapbooking Unit

Students will learn a brief history about the circus starting in Europe
and then coming to the United States. They’ll also learn the difference
between the early circus and the circus of today!

Includes: Suggested vocabulary and spelling words, a suggested reading
list, a brief history of the circus and multiple pages of templates to
create a hands-on, fun learning project!
