Top 5 Freebies of the Week 8/31/2013

I have been busy working on my room this week, but I am super excited because it’s done. I still have a few finishing touches to add, but I feel like it’s finally “kid ready”. If you missed my {post} the other day, you might not know that I’ll be teaching 2nd grade now this year, and I’m thrilled! Since I only had about a week to prepare, I was really thankful for generous friends and an understanding husband. Make sure to stop back tomorrow to check out my tropical classroom! 🙂

Number 5.

FREE Scientific Method Posters

I’m a big fan of allowing students to do experiments and investigations using the scientific method. That’s why I love these colorful FREE posters from Holly Rachel! These would be a great addition to any elementary classroom.

Number 4.


I know that helping students to understand exactly what a complete sentence consists of can be a really tough concept. When I taught first grade, we would literally start talking about sentences from day one and work on it all year. Here’s a free lesson from Thinking Out Loud that will help your students with this tricky concept.

Number 3.

Absent Folders FREEBIEI love this great organizational freebie from Create-abilities! It is a great, easy way to keep track of student work for absent students. 🙂

Number 2.

Newspaper FREEBIEDo you use resources from Pirate Girl aka Merinda Powell? If not, you should. She has some great stuff including these awesome FREE newspaper task cards. Print, laminate, grab a newspaper, and you’re ready to go! What a great way to get students to use real world text!

Number 1.

Back to School Fish Freebie

My number one is slightly selfish. This adorable freebie from Practice Make Perfect is what I will be using to welcome my 2nd graders to school this year! It matches my tropical theme perfectly, and I figured that if I love it, you would too! Add a bag of goldfish, and you’re good to go! I especially love this if you’re school only allows healthy treats. 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by! Remember to leave these ladies some love on these awesome freebies, don’t forget to stop by tomorrow for classroom pictures! Also, I’m looking for more freebies, so fill out the form {here} if you’d like to see your fabulous freebie featured!
