Food Fractions, Jelly Beans, and Easter Fun! Five For Friday

This is a very good Good Friday! It's a day off and a chance to catch you up on a fun-filled week with a Five for Friday linky with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

This week was full of fun food fractions and Easter activities!

1.) The kiddos were so sweet and many came in bearing gifts for me! One cutie pie made this bunny filled with goodies using a TP tube, scrapbook paper, a glittery pom and some jewels for eyes!
 I am filing this idea away on Pinterest for a classroom craft for next year!

2.) We wrapped up our fractions with a food theme unit this week! I love using the pieces from this Pizza Fractions Fun game as teaching tools. They look good enough to eat!

We also played a round of Scoot with these Food Fractions Task Cards. The class LOVED it! 
They can't wait to do it again!

3.) The class REALLY enjoyed a few yummy activities using jelly beans!

I gave each student a bag of 12 Starburst brand jelly beans. 
The students had to model and draw their fractions of the set and partition the rectangle to show halves, thirds and fourths. We also worked in a little mini-lesson on repeated addition, multiplication and division within the same activity!

Using our five senses, we created a list of adjectives that described our jelly beans! 
The students published a shorter list in computer lab.
 It is a great lesson on inserting an image and changing font size and colors.

If you would like the jelly bean picture for next year, I can send it to you without the watermark! 

4.) The class wrote a progressive Easter story. This is an older example where the children illustrated only one part of the story, but did not know what the others before or after had written. The students enjoyed seeing how the story and illustrations changed from writer to writer! I typed up the story beforehand and passed out a sentence strip to each child. This was published in Kid Pix Studio.

Other centers for the week included some fun with marshmallow bunnies fact families and telling time to five minute intervals.

5.) This week I set a goal to get back to work on some blogging business that got pushed aside before spring break. I made myself a new Bloglovin button!

Ta Da!
