Mode, Median, and Range Foldable

'Tis the season for State Assessments :(  Before Spring Break our 3rd - 6th graders took the reading assessment.  Tomorrow we return to school after a week off!  We will begin the math assessments soon.  Next week I will be spending my time with the classroom teachers and another special services teacher preparing the 3rd and 4th graders on concepts that are showing up as "most difficult" on their practice tests.

I was assigned the task of preparing 3rd graders on the indicator that addresses mode, median, and range (also maximum and minimum values)!  I created a lesson that utilizes a FOLDABLE.  If you can't tell from the pictures and need a more detailed explanation of the foldable, be sure to let me know!  I will have 30 minutes to teach the lesson and I will see all the 3rd graders during the course of the week, not just the Title I Math students.  We will create the foldable.  I will have done most of the assembly to save time.  The students will just glue down the information and work through the examples.

Next, I used our local weatherman's forecast to create page to check for understanding of the assessed indicator.  I hope you can find a use for this activity with your students!  Enjoy the downloads!

I have been studying contractions with my 1st grade MTSS group.  In Kansas MTSS = RtI!  I also had an assignment due in one of my master's classes.  I made this "Peanut Contraction Match Up" activity.  Hope you find it useful!

I need to read someone's tutorial about saving my file as a .jpg so you can see my creation!  Someday soon!  For now, you'll have to be unimpressed by clicking on the words :(
