PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Make a symmetrical Christmas holiday or winter tree from squares and rectangles with this printable activity. Students measure and mark a line of symmetry on construction paper then cut out, sort, and arrange the shapes. The snowflakes will help them center each shape along the line of symmetry. Great for math centers... instructions and a grayscale version are included.

Thank you, Mandy. Your decimal war game is inspired! I've had requests to do a book about decimals, never have come up with a good approach. Maybe some kind of weighing situation...

On  December 25, 2011,  Laura H. asked:
hi loreen,
i have several of your books in my k classroom....you do a wonderful job with your writing for young children...i always look for your books when i am in the bookstore or online looking for new books to include in my curriculum. I was lurking around tpt in hopes to find some fraction lessons (basic ones part/whole, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4) and stumbled upon your post...never dreaming a book writer would come to a teacher store....
anyhoo.....i like the christmas tree project....i was wondering if you could include a blackline of the project...i wouldn't be able to print 22 copies for my kiddos in color....but i could do it on construction paper and let them add color/details to snowflakes if it was in black and white form...no problem if it can't be done....keep on writing!

Hi Laura, it's so nice to hear that my books are useful in your classroom. I probably can make a blackline version, will try next week. Merry Christmas!
