I am again joining up with Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried It Tuesday Linky. I have two quick items that I've tried that I wanted to share with you.
First, like many of you I have taken advantage of the specials that you can get at VistaPrint. I have purchased two of those Groupon specials where you get $70 worth of products for like $17. One of the items I created was sticker labels that my students could put right in their assignment notebooks to let the parents know what books they are reading.
Sometimes my third graders are reading longer books that they transport back and forth to school. The parents didn't always know which books were library books, and which were assigned books for literature circles/book clubs.

Using these labels helps keep parents in the loop and talking with their children about the books they've been reading. I hope to tweak these labels with a different picture and adjust the lines this summer.
Also, I have created and used an Insect Inquiry Unit that includes the following items:
*Guidelines for implementing the unit
*Suggested Books and iPad Apps
*Independent Study Project
*Scoring Rubric for Project
*Insect Observation Booklet
*Three Different Life Cycle Assessment Sheets
*Insect Partner Building Buddy Sheet
*Insect Poetry Template
*Insect Bingo Game w/10 Different Game Boards
*Suggested Unit Activities
It can be yours for a very reasonable $3.00! Click here to find it on TpT! Your kids will be bitten by the science bug!
