When many people think of classroom transformations, they think:

“This would take me hours to set up.”

“This is going to cost so much money.”

“This looks so overwhelming.”

“I could never do this!”

What if I told you classroom transformations could be EASY to set up, FUN to implement, and STRESS-FREE?

Let's Start with the Basics...What is a Classroom Transformation?

A room transformation changes your room into a certain setting or theme to engage students in their own learning with rigorous content.

Classroom transformations are possible in EVERY classroom. You don’t have to spend hours of your time setting up a classroom transformation or spend lots of money to make it SO MUCH FUN!

Skills Included

Zero Property

Identity Property

Commutative Property

Associative Property

Distributive Property

A Quick Description

Students pretend they are shopping for groceries while solving multiplication properties at the same time. Students complete 30 questions that are real-world themed. This math activity is perfect for third graders. It aligns with 3.OA.5.

There are 6 different versions included so that you can use what you need!

Color (Print front and back)

One Sided Color

Black and White (Print front and back)

One Sided (Black and White)

Four to a Page (Color)

Four to a Page (Black and White)

Step 1: Tell your 3rd grade class that they are in a grocery store today looking for the food on their shopping list. They will solve questions to practice their skills. Students solve all 30 worksheets to complete the classroom transformation!

Step 2: Students solve a math challenge. Then, they get it checked by the teacher. The teacher signs their recording sheet to show completion of each challenge. When a student finishes the apple challenge, the teacher signs the apple box on the recording sheet. Students can work independently, in partners, or groups. Your choice!

Step 3: When students finish all the challenges (or however many you assign), they win! You can give them the certificate of completion included.

Step 4: Most of the time, there are early or fast finishers! These kiddos get to go around the room and scan the QR codes provided! Each QR code leads to a fun fact about grocery stores that they can record on the sheet provided or a piece of notebook paper.

There is an editable challenge paper included. This means if one of the challenges doesn't work for your classroom, you can make your own! There are ten pre-made challenges included for you to use but we all know sometimes changes are necessary to best fit your classroom :) These challenges are aligned to Common Core and TEKS.

This is a perfect review activity before giving a properties assessment or as an extra practice activity. Step by step lesson plans are included so you know exactly what to do. It can be used as a spiral review and is easy to set up and implement. It is great for any class that needs something fun to reinforce what you've already taught. The QR codes add in technology as well and students learn new facts about grocery stores. Classroom transformation ideas are a new trend in education and can set the stage to engage!

These classroom transformations can be used for elementary children as a worksheet alternative, printables, in math stations, center rotations, math centers, as enrichment or remediation, in small groups, as test prep, as worksheets, escape room alternatives, homework practice (take what you don’t finish home for homework), digital theme days, end of year themed days, classroom transformation kits, printables, and so much more! These math activities are made to be flexible so you can use them however you’d like in your classroom.

You no longer need to spend hours prepping your classroom for your next classroom transformation! These hands on, low prep activities will keep your students engaged while practicing rigorous material at the same time.

Aligns with 3.OA.5

Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)

A DIGITAL VERSION HAS NOW BEEN ADDED!

With remote learning taking center stage in our communities, a digital version is now included! It's compatible with Google Slides™ and can be completed 100% digitally. That means no making copies and less prep for you!

How Does a Digital Classroom Transformation Work?

First, invite your students into a video call on whatever learning platform your school district uses. Set the scene and tell your class online what themed day they will be completing.

Then, assign your students the Google Slides™ activities that come with this digital classroom transformation. Each digital classroom transformation is interactive and has movable pieces for students to enjoy playing with. Every activity can be modified for what works best in your classroom! A digital cover page, digital recording sheet, 10 digital challenges, and a digital certificate are included in the Google Slides file.

Finally, as a digital reward, students are invited to play the self-checking game that shows them fun facts about grocery stores. It's engaging, interactive, and a great way to motivate students throughout the digital room transformation while completing distance learning.

Let's Break Down What Comes in the Digital Version:
