This file has four printable pages to allow your students to practice extending patterns. The patterns feature clip art associated with going back to school.    Students identify the pattern and determine which picture would extend the pattern; they cut the pattern pieces from the bottom of the paper and glue them in the appropriate place.     These pages could be used for morning work, homework, or regular classwork. This activity would also make a great math center or math station. $ by mitzi

Text-Dependent Questions: I think this is going to be one of the harder parts if the CC for my students this year - citing evidence from the text when answering questions and to steer them away from "I think" and making connections answers.

DIY Homemade Gel Ice Pack . I put toys inside to entertain my kids through a boo-boo. I also became very reliant on these during my 12 week half marathon training. They were essential for achy knees. Also can be used for natural headache and sinus pressure relief. I pretty sure every parent and runner could use these at one time or another- they cost pennies to make vs. more expensive store bought.|running motivation -inspiration-tips by shelia

I wanted something to use to reinforce, or follow-up each of the notebook pages that my students complete. Each page reviews the concepts and skills that are presented in the notebook pages.

GENIUS: After my students write a piece I have them leave it on their desks when they go to lunch or special area classes. I place a Skittle on each correct punctuation mark (and I usually put one or two one if they indent a paragraph).  Let me tell you, Skittles are the great motivator! by georgina

These Strawberry Banana blender muffins are vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free! They are made with no oil or refined sugar and the best part? You blend the batter making the prep time about 5 minutes!! No excuses now--this is a great easy healthy breakfast recipe. These could also be a great gluten free snack for kids. by aline

I put an absent folder on my absent student's desk.  The students at their table will make sure they get all of the work we do that day put in their folder.  I do check their folder at the end of the day and make sure there are not tests or activities that can only be done whole class. Then, when that student returns the next day, they put their folder in their backpack.  The instructions to the parents are on the folder. by kelseyinfo

When my high school students ask a question no one in the class knows (including myself), they can put it up on the Google Board.  Students can bring back a written answer to one of the questions of their choice each week for extra credit, or whatever incentive you choose. They get really excited when a question comes up that they can put on the board and find out the answer to later...this is a GREAT idea! by ofelia
