Top 5 Freebies of the Week 1/25/2014

Hi All! This week was totally nuts! We had off on Monday for Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, a half day on Tuesday due to snow, a snow day on Wednesday, and then normal schedule on Thursday and Friday. It was wacky to say the least. I feel like it was just the weekend! (Not that I’m complaining).

We did manage to get some work done this week, though. We finished our 2nd informational lab reports, continued to study folk tales and fables, and even introduced a new, interactive bulletin board (which I’ll be sharing about tomorrow). All in all it was a good (albeit short) week. 🙂

Now, onto this week’s freebies!Top 5 freebies pic

Number 5.

Football Measuring Freebie

The big game is just around the corner. Grab this football measuring activity from Lindsay Keegan. It can be used in a math center or as a small group activity.  Students can use the football measuring sticks, paperclips, cubes, rulers, etc. to measure the football themed pictures and then record their findings on the recording sheet.

Number 4.

Action Verb Freebie

If you’re working on action verbs, here’s a great, unique freebie from Vilena Hamilton. It focuses on the action verbs of specific jobs. What a neat way to practice this important skill!

Number 3.

Poetry Freebie

I love this simple and easy to use diamante poetry template from Proud to Be Primary! This type of fun, simple poem is fun for all students and can be used for almost any topic!

Number 2.


You can make your own sorting game with this editable mat and pieces from Brenda Tejeda! You type in what you want your students to sort, they sort and record on the included sheet. Meet your students needs, differentiate the activities and reuse over and over again! The possibilities are endless!

Number 1.


Check out this adorable Groundhog’s Day freebie from Amy Swan!This differentiated math station is designed to help students develop number sense and the concept of number order (what comes before, after, and between given numbers).  Differentiated recording sheets are provided to help you meet your students’ individual needs and monitor their progress!

Make sure to leave these freebies some love!

Have a great Saturday!
