Did Someone Say Sale....and a Giveaway?!

Hello friends! Teacherspayteachers is having another one of its annual (and amazing sales). In the spirit of the sale, we at ATUE wanted to do a easy giveaway as an opportunity to give you some extra cash to shop in the form of a TPT gift certificate.

Before we get to the giveaway, lets check out some of the favorite products from our bloggers at ATUE. (Hint...you will need to comment about one of them as part of the giveaway!)

Blogger: Blair Turner

I created this resource as a quick and easy way to help keep track of of my students’ progress. There is an assessment for each Common Core math standard, as well as all the resources you need to track class data and individual student progress

Pi day is just around the corner! This differentiated bundle includes both Area and Circumference of a circle with an embedded craftivity! There are 14 problems for each Tier (3 tiers Area and 3 tiers for Circumference). This activity is ideal for stations, independent or partner practice, or formative assessment. On the answer sheet students should write the heart number, show their work, and give their answer.

Teach grammar and mechanics for the month of March with these daily printables! Instead of correcting poorly written sentences, invite students to notice what works in well written sentences! These sentences are so much fun and your kids will love them!

There are literature response projects, and then there are literature response projects like this!

This resource has been an idea in the back of my brain for a long time. Teaching mathematical behaviors is as important a part of what I do with my students as teaching them the math content. One thing I have noticed is that students coming to me often are lacking the "perseverance" needed to successfully tackle new and challenging problems. Over time, I have refined my own definition of what "perseverance" means and have worked hard to teach my students how to be energized, thoughtful mathematicians. I am hoping that you find this resource helpful for you and your grade 4-6 students as well! The unit has a ton of stuff--but the heart of the unit is the 24 high level problems that will really test your students' ability to apply these new problem solving skills. Some of the problems have many solutions. Others are tricky to read and interpret. Others require them to simply "dig in" and start guessing and checking!

This resource (available for 4th and 5th grade) contains 9 Common Core Aligned Math Centers directly aligned to the standards for that grade level. Take a break from the usual stressful test prep, and let the students have some fun with these centers. They will be preparing for the big test without even realizing it.

Are you looking for some engaging ELA activities to keep your students focused on standards as spring fever sets in? This craftivity bundle contains three separate resources: Idiom Craftivity for Saint Patrick's Day, Fact and Opinion Craftivity for March Madness, and a Parts of Speech Craftivity to mark the beginning of spring! An added bonus: these (and all!) craftivities create eye-catching bulletin boards and hallway displays!

Blogger: Two Brainy Apples

Easily integrate reading and geography with my interactive notebook Geo Journeys! This edition focuses on significant women in history. Perfect for Women's History Month coming up in March.

Activities can be completed either whole group, small group, or independently. Made for grades 4-6.

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/January-June-Writing-Bundles-1044329Blogger: Right Down the Middle with Andrea

Writing is made simple by incorporating this engaging topics into your writing time. You will receive 120 journal prompts in this January-June Writing Bundle. The journal prompts come in two formats. One way is to create a mini-journal with all of the prompts for each month. The other way is a cut-and-paste method where you simply copy the number of topic strips you need for your students, cut the strips, and then tape or paste the topic strips into your students' journals. Your students will love the topics! In addition to the journal prompts, there are 18 essay topics complete with topic sheet/pre-writing organizer, drafting sheets, and a scoring rubric.

Dividing with Whole Numbers seems to continue to be a struggle for students in upper elementary and even into middle school for some. This flippable works students through the process of setting up a division problem, identifying the quotient, dividend and divisor and working through the steps to solve for the correct answer with or without remainders. Added into this packet is also practice for dividing within word problems with three and four digit dividend for more real-world practice.

This product will add spice your reading program. No more boring book reports! Students will have a choice of what to read and guidance on how to choose the right book in a specific genre.

Poetry Month is coming, but with Common Core, who has time for a whole month? In developing this unit I thought about what I learned about "Power Standards" this year in the ELA curriculum committee I serve on for my district. I asked myself, "What do my students need in order to access poetry for the test, and for later on in life?" I wouldn't be able to turn all my kiddos into amazing poets in two weeks, but this mini unit everything they need to know about poetry in fourth grade.
