❤ FREE ❤ Fun Fractions with M&Ms - Materials Needed: 1 snack pack of M&M candies (per student) My students ALWAYS love this lesson! I've successfully completed this activity with 2nd, 4th and 5th grade classes. Have fun =)
Students write a letter to a parent about what they did during the week. The parent writes back a short note in response. "If the students bring their Friday Journal back on Monday with a parent response, they receive a sticker on the cover of their journal. By the end of the year, the cover looks really cool and the parents have a special keepsake."
