Top 5 Freebies of the Week 7/12/2014

Happy Saturday Folks! Can you believe that it’s already mid July? Since I’m from the east coast, most school’s around here have only been out for a few weeks. I’ve been off since April because I was on maternity leave. Normally this is the point in the summer where I start thinking about next year. I start pinning on Pinterest like crazy, creating new resources every day, and start thinking about my procedures for the next year.

Well, this year? Not so much. I absolutely love teaching, but the thought of leaving little miss is almost unbearable at this point. So, if you’re wondering why you’re not seeing many “new product” emails from TpT for my store, that is why. I’m hoping I can get my creative mojo back soon, but for now, I would much rather snuggle this cutie. 🙂

 (I mean, can you blame me?)


I have been distracting myself from thinking about going back to school with my new Jamberry business, and I am LOVING my awesome nails. I create a page on here with a little info in case you’d like to learn more. Just click the picture below. (This was my first application from a few days ago, and they still look exactly the same!)

Since I’ve been a slacker with turning out new products, I’m going to make it up to you by putting one of my newer products on sale. Click the picture below to grab my alphabet flippers for a discounted price today and tomorrow only. 🙂


Alright, freebie time!Top 5 freebies pic

Number 5.


Check out this freebie from Clark’s Spark! It’s a scoot game that will allow you to assess where your students are in a fun way.  This game uses pictures of common CVC words that your students write the names of on the answer sheet provided. There is a completed answer sheet provided so the activity can be self checking.  Perfect for a whole group game or place it in your literacy center and let your students use it there.

Number 4.


If you have an owl theme, check out these welcome tags from The Fabulous Life of an Elementary Teacher. These can be used on gifts for your team members or for welcome gifts for your students. Just cut them out, punch a hole in the corner, and attach with ribbon!

Number 3.


Here is a Scoot game for you and your class to learn about each other at the beginning of the school year from Angie’s Hangout! It’s perfect for the first few days of school. 🙂

Number 2.


This is a fun scoot game from The Chocolate Teacher geared towards first & second graders in helping them to quickly recognize the value of tally marks.  Students will move around desks that have a numbered scoot card on them.  They will record the tally mark value on their recording sheet in the matching number box.  The game is finished when students have moved all the way around the room & back to their beginning number.

Number 1.


This Scoot Game from Jennifer Kime Creations reviews the 4 kinds of sentences – declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, and imperative. Students will have fun moving around the classroom as they determine which kind of sentence is presented on each card. It can be used as a grammar review, practice, or even assessment.

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave these wonderful freebies some love! 🙂
