Add some pizazz to snack time with student-made academic placemats! Once completed, placemats can be laminated and traded throughout the month so students can review different academic topics while they eat!
Includes a PDF file with the assignment parameters (title in the center, size, neatness, colorfulness, inclusion of a quick quiz for one's peers, etc.) and two pages of possible fifth grade placemat topics with motivating titles like, “Review Similes Faster than a Speeding Bullet” and “Parentheses Save the Day.” Students can choose a topic from this list, you can generate your own list based on your current unit, or students can self-select a review topic on which to focus their placemat.
We made these to display at parent-teacher conferences this year and received tons of positive feedback from families! If you've purchased the PDF and would like a Word Doc so you can make edits, email me and I will send it along. Also, please leave me feedback—I’m new at this and would love your input! Thanks!
