Surely all of you are back in school and if not, I'm know it's right around the corner. I switched this to monthly in hopes you all can still link up with it being once a month instead of weekly. I also HAVE to keep it going because, honestly people, it keeps me accountable:))
So here we go.......................................................
Classroom Made It #1:
I love these little Math key word posters! My kiddos need some help in that area so I searched Pinterest and found these. I did not make these. They are from Barnard-Island Shop and they are FREE!! Love them and love how cute they look along with my other number stuffzies:) I'm so proud of my Math wall/section/work in progress. (thanks Guided Math book:)
Classroom Made It #2:
Ever since I saw this on Nicole's blog, Rowdy in Room 300, I HAD to have one!!! Lucky for me my sweet, crafty daughter was home this weekend and made this for my classroom. I want to add it to my writing center so that's why I didn't have her put my name on it. We are going to make more though. Nicole's tutorial is perfect and easy to follow:)
Classroom Made It #3:
I don't usually like to post about a product from my stores on my Made It but I was so stinkin excited about this, I just had to. In Florida, we have a state writing assessment (like the kids and teachers aren't stressed enough....don't get me started). Anywho, they have really cracked down on the spelling and conventions...like BIG time......well, in this lovely world of texting and video games, kids spelling of sight words is horrible. I really wanted my kids to practice words in a fun way, with repetition, so that it would stay with them. This is what I came up with:
This is the first of 2 sets so far. The directions explain their "superhero mission". Each set includes 8 lists of sight words. Each list has a word search and checklist. I'm laminating mine so they can be used over and over in our Daily 5 Word Work. After they find each word, they check it off their checklist and then have to spell it and use it in a sentence (on other paper).
Can you stand the cuteness of the superheroes?!?!?!?!? They were by none other than Nikki from Melonheadz. I got the idea for this activity when I was running and knew I wanted a superhero theme and Nikki had just what I needed. Check out all her cute things!!! LOVE!! I just love them and I know my kids will too! I have gotten quite a few comments/emails from new to 4th grade teachers excited that "4th Grade can be fun". I am constantly trying to come up with fun ways to teach everything.....we are competing with the video game generation so I feel like it's so important to put a fun twist on the learning:) Just my thoughts:) If you would like to check these out they are at both my shops: TN and TPT.
I have 2 different sets so far, one that targets words 3rd graders should know and one that targets words 4th graders should know.
Hope you all are having a wonderful Labor Day! Be blessed and link up when you can:)
