Top 5 freebies pic

Number 5.

Spring Place Value FREEBIEPlace value is such an important skill, which is why I love this spring themed multiplayer game from Mel from From The Pond. Students try to make the largest or smallest number possible by placing numbers in either the tens or ones column. This is sure to be a great springtime hit!

Number 4.

Reading Strategy Posters

I love these small reading strategy posters from Second-grade-alicious. She suggests taping them right onto your guided reading table so students have them right there when you’re working with them, and I think that’s a wonderful idea!

Number 3.

Adding TenAdding 10 to a number is a very important common core skill, and students get to practice that with this fun flower themed game from Teach With Laughter! This game would work great in pairs. Students roll e die, add 10, and then in they have that number on their flower, they cover it up. The first person to cover up each number on their flower wins!

Number 2.

Mothers Day TeaPot CardPssst! Mother’s Day is just around the corner! I know, it’s snuck up on me too! Luckily I found this adorable tea pot card freebie from Crayon Box Learning that your students (and their moms) will love. The teacup pattern also comes blank so students can write their own message.

Number 1.

Teacher Appreciation

I LOVE Teacher Appreciation Day! Can you guess why? 😉 I also love these fabulous teacher appreciation certificates from The Teacher Gene because they allow you to fill in the recipient’s name- How cool!

Welp, those are my picks for the week! I love sharing these freebies, and I think my favorite part is hearing what you think about them, so leave a comment below and let me know!

Before I go, I just wanted to show you my newest product that I’m SUPER proud of!


This pirate themed map pack is a great way to introduce basic map skills. It includes a SUPER fun interactive powerpoint that explains the parts of a map and how to use a grid.


It also includes some fabulous simple map worksheets for students to practice their skills.


And it culminates with a fabulous create your own map and pirate craftivity!

    My husband thinks I am crazy that every Saturday I am busy working because of your awesome freebie finding talents but I love it! Thank you so much. I am thinking of using your map lessons for the end of the year treasure hunt and have the trunk filled with chalk and bubbles and things to play with at school.
