Even though some of you have been back in the classroom for a week or two (and some of you for a month) I am in the middle of my work week. I realized I haven’t shared a freebie in awhile. So, I set aside a little time to finish up a couple of word searches. Both of these are available in my Free Resource Library.
I had several volunteers offer to proof my latest file. I drew a number to decide who would help. Thank you to Tania for being my extra set of eyes. I hope you enjoy the activities with your students.
These domino activities would be a great addition to a first or second grade classroom. I am planning to start the year with these activities with my second graders to provide review and build fact fluency back up from summer loss. Because second graders can complete them independently, they will be good practice for building stamina during our math rotations, too. I plan to pair these games with my Keep on Rollin’ dice packs.
In the picture above you can see the different title slides for the activities and the various sheets included. I will print mine pages on cardstock paper and put into sheet protectors. By doing this my students can use dry erase markers and the sheets should last all year. Most of the activities include a cover page and a single sheet for the activity. However, two activities (True or False? and What’s Missing?) each contain four pages with answer keys. These could be used in your math station or as worksheets for additional practice.
Just finished up a book companion for Amazing Animal Journeys, a Level 3 National Geographic Kids text. This book follows the migration of zebras, red crabs, and walruses. If you already own the bundle, be sure to grab this latest addition.
I love this book recommendation table from Learning on Leighton Lane! ❤️❤️❤️I love this book recommendation table by @learningonleightonlane!!! She painted a thrift store find with chalkboard paint and used chalk markers to do the writing. ♥️ Her class “librarians” choose books for the table and kids may take and read any book they find there! Such a perfect way to celebrate reading!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Books have been a constant in my life since I was a young reader. I'm so glad that it's my turn to share my love of books with others. ❤️❤️❤️Books have meant so much to me my entire life. I love how books can change our perspective or strengthen our beliefs. I love how you can pass joy by sharing a book you love with someone. I love how more recently, educators and publishing house are realizing the importance and significance of representation in children’s books. I’d like to point out however, that BIPOC folx and LGBT+ folx and differently abled folx have been begging for representation for....ever. In a well know idea from Rudine Sims Bishop, books should be mirrors and windows for our students. I love this graphic by @grantdraws What have books been for you? #thetututeacher #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers ... See MoreSee Less
