Printables and Worksheets to go with the book Fractions, Decimals, and Percents by David A. Adler
While working with the two girls that I'm tutoring over the summer I needed to review fractions with them. So off I went to look for a book to help me teach them the concept of fractions and here is the great book that I found.
This book presents the relationship between Fractions, Decimals, and Percents in clear, real world examples that are easy to understand. The book gives some problems for students to work out themselves but I wanted to use a few more so I've created a small workbook to go along with the book. Its 25 pages long and gives your students a lot of practice in changing fractions into decimals or percents, and the other way around. And of course for being an early bird to the blog by subscribing via the RSS, facebook, or Pinterest you can get it for free. Just click on the link at the bottom of the page.
If you would like to get the book yourself you can click on the picture below and it will direct you to the book on Amazon.
There are a total of 8 worksheets in this download and one two player game. Students will be able to practice recognizing when fractions, decimals or percents mean the same thing, place value, finding what an item costs when it is on sale, and converting fractions, decimals and percents.
Sight Word Zoo
Here is a new limited time freebie, Sight Word Zoo. This is a card game that allows your classroom to practice their sight words. To play the game kids take turns drawing cards. If they draw a sight word they must say the word. If they draw an animal card everyone starts to act like that animal until the teacher says, "Zoo keeper." When this is said everyone must freeze until the teacher says back to your cages, when everyone come quietly back to the carpet.
This is a massive download with 10 decks, plus a blank one, that cover the first 300 words on Fry's Sight Word List. This is a perfect game to make sight word flash cards fun!

Here are 5 new game boards to practice the phonics skill of initial consonant digraphs. If you missed the initial consonant or initial consonant blends board games you can download them on my phonics page.
These five board games will let your students practice: ch, gh, kn, sh, th, wh, and wr digraphs. They will have to say the sound of the digraph when they land on it and a word that starts with that sound.
So I've got five new phonics board games for you. These are similar to the ones that I did yesterday except they are now covering initial consonant blends. Below each picture of the games you will find the link to the game.
In each game students roll the dice and move that many spaces on the game board. They then have to say the sound of the consonant blend that they've landed on and say a word that starts with the sound. The first one to the end wins!
If you missed yesterdays games you can get them all on my phonics page.
