Happy Monday!

Happy Monday everyone! Is anyone else overwhelmed with all the things you have to do for the end of the year? I know I am! 

This week we are working on Area in math! Today I borrowed a great idea from one of my sweet teacher friends, Mrs. Elmore! We created a foldable where I gave the students the area of a shape and they had  to create a shape that was that area! They loved it and it was so simple. I used my basic foldable template! You can get it here, and it's free! Then I gave each student a page of graph paper. They colored the area in and cut it out and glued! Here is a couple of examples!

For homework this week they will be creating stained glass windows in power point and figuring the area! They have loved doing the measurement power points the last couple weeks! Click on the link below to download a copy!

Hope everyone has a great day!
