Five for Friday & a FLASH GIVEAWAY!!!

Hard to believe another Friday has arrived. I only have 13 more days and two Fridays left for this school year! What??? Where did the year go? This is going to be a quick post, but make sure to read all of it because there is a little surprise in store for all of you that do!


I started making my kiddos end of the year gifts this week. I made one of these for each of my students. I am going shopping for photo frames this weekend. I hope they love them. This adorable Subway Art template is from my sweet friend Amelia at Where the Wild Things Learn. 

We were lucky enough to get a visit from a local farmer. She came to talk to the kids about what she grows on her farm and how she grows her fruits and vegetables. She brought some fresh produce for the kids to try too!

We reviewed fractions this week with some of Amy Lemons activities from her Fraction Fanatic packet. The kids loved making these cookie booklets and showing off their fraction knowledge!


 I just finished and uploaded my newest creation- Perfect Penmanship: A Printing Practice Unit.  Even though I teach second grade, I still have kids that do not make their letters properly. It frustrates me! I always spend the first semester of school working on clear printing. If I can't read what they write, they don't get credit. I wanted the printing pages to review important skills, as well as practicing their letter formation. This packet is filled with over 75 pages of printing practice. It also includes review of common sight words, identifying vowels and consonants, sentence writing and much more.
 FLASH GIVEAWAY!
