Landforms Activity and Gradebook Printable

This week in Science we have been learning about Earth's Land Features. All week we took notes, learned hand gestures, and watched a video, and then we made a landform flipbook. I have to say, it came out SOOOO cute!! I got the idea from an AIMS lesson and adapted it for the SC landforms. Here is what it looks like completed!



And here it is in action!


You can download it HERE!

And in other news, I finally made a printable gradebook for me to use and wanted to share in case you need one too! =) My life has been so much easier when entering grades into Powerschool with this! 

To download this file, just click the image below! You will need the font, GingersnapPrint (free in my sidebar) to look like mine. You can of course change your font if you wish. There are also printable pages for Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies includes but not pictured below.


And I'm off to bed!! I'm pooped!

  6. Thanks for the editable grade book. I created my own a few years back (very basic). I set it up by the standards and also in a way that compliments our report cards to ease report card time.

    I have seen several cute grade books floating around the blogosphere world. But I won't use any in PDF format. I mean really, why would I want to rewrite students names and all the other info every quarter??? To me the whole point of an electronic version is to streamline the process. Set it up they way you need it once and you're good to go! So I appreciate your document in Word!!!

    My school has been doing attendance in Powerschool for a couple of years now, but only mid and high school have used the Powerschool grade book. Our elementary schools have been told we have to do grades on Powerschool this year, but have had no trainings or further communication.

    Question: You mentioned this has made your life so much easier when entering grades into Powerschool. Can you expand on that a little more?

  7. I love both of your ideas and I want to tell you THANKS!!! I've not had my own regular classroom for many years and your ideas and printables have helped me so much. I'm not very technologically advanced so you've helped me in many ways. I appreciate the time that you took to put all of these things up on your blog.

  14. Love the grade book! Been looking for one for awhile! Amy way I can add lines to it? I have 21 students and would need a couple extra lines. My email is ledbetter2@marshall.edi in case I don't see your reply. Thanks SO much!

    1. You should be able to do that on your own. You just need to drag from the corner on the bottom right to make it smaller and then add new rows to the end.

  16. Love this landform activity! I sent it to my student teacher who printed it out and put together the books for all 56 of our students. We used them to take notes on all of the landforms and then color. It turned out great!

  18. Thank you for the free download!

    Do you have the link to the file that includes the ISLAND? When I downloaded the file it didn't include the island.

  19. Thank you for the flipbook download!

    I see in your picture of the landforms flipbook that an ISLAND is included, but the download doesn't have it. Is there any way to get the file that includes the Island?
