Shark Week Blog Hop
All teachers know that kids learn more when they’re excited and engaged. Today a team of bloggers come together to help your students take a BITE out of learning with a theme your students are sure to love!
I use individual whiteboards in my classroom all the time to keep all of my students engaged. They love writing on their own boards! For more tips on how to engage all your students check out my previous blog post here.
Of course, picking topics the students are interested in always helps, too!
What student (boy or girl) doesn’t love sharks? When I am creating practice worksheets for my students I always add some graphics or activity that is related something they are interested in or a subject matter we are covering in another subject area. Even though they are practicing concepts they know and may get “bored” with the added elements makes it fun.
My freebie is a perfect example of this. The work is multiplication review but students get to solve a fun riddle at the same time.They also get to practice fine motor skills while they complete the cut and paste activity.

Before I move on to the blog hop links I thought I would share some humor I found and shared on my Facebook page!
Be sure to go for a swim in the linky party below. Every blog in the Shark Week Blog Hop features a fishy freebie for you and your students- but hurry! Shark Week only lasts until Sunday, August 17th : )
Hi Terri! Thanks for the freebie! I'm hoping you can help me out. I follow you on Pinterest and notice you collaborate to the board Fourth Grade Friends. I would like to do this too, but have no idea how…. will you help me? I'd love to get a bit more involved on collaborative blogging/pinning…. thanks! Angela email@example.com
Angela I just sent you an email 🙂
Whiteboards are such a great way to get kids involved! I will have to check out your other post for sure 🙂 Thanks for some great focused multiplication practice- I love finding ones centered around certain fact strategies… and thanks for linking up with me this week, too!
