Top 5 Freebies of the Week 9/21/2013

Hello! I hope you’re all having a lovely week! We just finished our second full week of school, and I’m loving my class. They’re just such sweethearts and smarties! We had Back-to-School night this week and I got to meet a lot of their parents. It was the best Back-to-School night I’ve ever had. Despite the fact that I’m loving school, I have been SO busy with the new grade level, long commute, and overall back-to-school craziness, that my blogging has not been my usual 2-3 times a week. I plan to start blogging more as soon as I can catch my breathe. 😉

I will be blogging tomorrow about some writer’s workshop and work on writing ideas, so make sure to stop back then!

Now, let’s get to the freebies!

Number 5.


If you’re teaching about nature, check out this cootie catcher freebie from Green Grubs Garden Club. Your kiddos will have so much fun with these!

Number 4.


I don’t know about you, but I’m always trying to expand my students vocabulary. That’s why I think this freebie from Tchrgrl is really neat. She says, “I refer to these posters during the day to remind me to use spicy words to describe common activities. For example, I may look at the list and ask kids to “dole” out the papers instead of passing out the papers. Having students hear quality words in meaningful situations increases their “word consciousness” which is the gateway to having a wide vocabulary.”

Number 3.


This poster set from The Write Stuff is a great reminder of how students and teachers can be mindful everyday. This would work great in classrooms that use the Bucket Filling model.

Number 2.


You all know I love a good graphing freebie! This freebie from Fun Times in First is a cute, fun activity that works on those important graphing skills. It offers a fun way to practice graphing, creating tally tables, interpreting data and BONUS opinion writing!

Number 1.


We all want our students to be caring and sensitive to people with disabilities, but this can be a complex topic to discuss. That’s why I love this freebie from Teacher Gems. This booklet would be a great way to discuss different disabilities with your students.

Don’t forget to leave these ladies some love! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great Saturday!
