### Description

UPDATED on April 14, 2018 - This purchase now includes editable directions pages, blank task cards so that you can create your own problems, and a fully editable student recording booklet. You must have PowerPoint in order to be able to access these editable files.

Glow Day is a classroom transformation that I completed in my 5th grade classroom at the end of the school year as a mixed-skill math review. I transformed our classroom using black lights and glow sticks purchased on Amazon. Full details about the items I used in my transformation can be found on my blog http://adventuresofmssmith.blogspot.com.

I set up the four stations included in this pack around my classroom and explained each station to all of my students. My students each received a work booklet that they worked in all day. This booklet was taken up and graded.

Students stayed at each station for 30-45 minutes. Students could have stayed in each such much longer (no one finished ALL of the task cards that were included at each center), so you could possibly complete this over two days if necessary. My goal was to provide my students with enough work that they wouldn’t run out of things to do. I only graded my students on the tasks that they completed, as long as I saw them working the entire day.

If you have any other questions about Glow Day, please check out my blog. You are also more than welcome to email me with any questions you have.

I am happy to help!
