Now, to get to the good stuff. Here are my top 5 Freebies of the week! πŸ™‚

Number 5.

Presidents Day

This President’s Day freebie from Latonya Reed is a perfect way to briefly discuss what President’s Day is all about. Students can make an “are, can, have” chart, write about why presidents are important, and discuss what they would do if they were president.

Number 4.

monster directions

You know when you give directions for a multi-step activity and then you feel like you just keep repeating them? Well, don’t! Use these adorable direction cards from Miss Martin as visual cues for what your students should be doing and in what order! There are a bunch of different options that you could use for different projects.

Number 3.

Peas in a PodThis adorable compound word game by the lovely Teresa Williams would be a great center game OR whole group partner puzzle (a favorite of my firsties). Plus, the pea graphics are just too cute!

Number 2.

Polar Bear Science

I don’t know about you, but here in NJ, it has certainly felt freezing wintery the last few days. This fun Polar Bear Themed Ice Melting experiment from Crayonbox Learning is the perfect way to melt away the winter blues with some scientific fun. πŸ™‚

Number 1.

Turtle RoundI stumbled across this adorable addition and subtraction game from From the Pond and I fell in love. First, the turtles are just TOO cute. Second, I think this would be a great way to assess students addition skills. They get different turtles and then add the number in the middle to all of the numbers around the outside and record it on a record sheet. You can then check their record sheet to see how they did, but kids will feel more like their playing a game and less like they’re doing a math worksheet. Love!

I hope you enjoyed the top 5 Freebies this week. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Enjoy your three day weekend!
