Top 5 Freebies of the Week 9/14/2013

Hi Friends! I have just finished my first full week teaching second grade in my new school, and I can’t even express how much I LOVE it! I have always enjoyed teaching, but I really love my new school, my new teammates, and my new students!

So if you’re interested, I just have to brag that my super 2nd graders read to self for… wait for it… 17 minutes yesterday! (They actually read for 17 the first round and 15 the second for a total of 32 minutes!!) They are loving Daily 5 are and very excited to start working on writing this coming Monday.

Since back-to-school night is Tuesday, we’ve been working on a few cool projects/writing pieces to display on the walls. I always want parents to be able to see exactly what their kiddos are doing.

Here is my favorite bulletin board. For 9/11, we learned about heroes, and then my students picked a hero in their lives to write about. Heroes Bulletin Board {Click for FREEBIE}

Reading Comprehension Graphic Organizers #free

These 7 graphic organizers for reading comprehension  from The Second Grade Scoop are a great resource to print out and tuck away. There are always times when these simple and useful graphic organizers will come in handy. I also think they would be great for early finishers who love to read.

I love these place value task cards from Sara J! They go up to hundreds and are perfect for 1st and 2nd grade!

Number 3.

Fall Ten Frame Match Game #freebie

This fall themed freebie from Brittany Lynch is perfect for pre-school and kindergarten students who are working on number sense. Match the acorns in the ten frame to the number trees. This would work great as a center or performance quick assessment.

If you’re working on color words, look no further than this freebie from Little Miss Edugator! Students get to read, trace, write, glue, and then draw each color word.
