Tried it Tuesday- A Day Late and a Dollar Short! :) {10.9.13}

Hey everyone! One of my favorite linky parties is the Tried it Tuesday link over at Fourth Grade Flipper and this week I actually made something to share! How awesome, right?! Can you tell I'm excited? :)

I'm actually pretty proud of this because I came up with the idea all on my own! This week one of our reading skills is main idea/details. I was trying to think of something really cool (no pun intended!) to put in their interactive reading notebooks. As I pondered about a foldable to do, I thought of ice cream... Don't ask where it came from, I guess I just wanted ice cream at the time (blame it on Monday!)- so that's what I created! An awesome ice cream main idea/details cut out for their notebook :) They LOVED it! It was so adorable the way they decorated the ice cream cones unique and special!

We also did Cinquain poems this week during stations and here is a cute picture of some of their spiders :) They really enjoyed doing this craftivity!

We also tried a new Kagan strategy this week called Numbered Heads Together- it was so AWESOME!! :) I used it to review our last math chapter before the test and the kids loved hearing about how they came up with their answers. I was so pleased at how my students interacted and worked with each other, it was a true teaching moment :)

What have YOU all tried this week? Leave some feedback love below! I would love to hear from you all! :) Also, don't forget to link up as well! :)
