Valentine's Day Mirror Words

Here in the east we're all digging out from under the snow and getting ready for another dumping.  I am soooo envious right now of those of you who live where it's warm and sunny.  I'm longing for my flip flop days!!!

However, snowy days give me time to finish up some products I have been working on.  I just posted my Mirror Words activity for February.

My students love seeing the mirrors at a literacy station as much as the magnifying glasses.

Students use a mirror to read backward words and record them on a choice of two recording sheets.  This will allow you to differentiate for your students.  An "I can" student instruction card is included for each recording choice.  You can find this engaging learning pack HERE.

If you own my Mirror Words Bundle I have added it to the pack so you can re-download for free :)

As always, I'll send a copy of my Valentine Mirror Words to the first 3 people who comment on this post.  Don't forget your email!

Punctuation Anchor Chart

I LOVE using anchor charts in my classroom but oh boy do some of mine need a little upgrade. My goal over the next couple of months is to spend time doing just that!

This punctuation chart turned out so cute that I just had to share with all!!

I've posted the accents as a FREEBIE in my TPT store HERE and hope that you all find it as adorable as I do!

In this pack you'll also find an activity to check for understanding along with an 'I can' student instruction card so you can copy and toss it into a literacy station.

If you like this idea or have other suggestions, please let me know as I'm hoping to create a number of these :)

Have a great week everyone!!

there, their, they're


Why must the English language be so tricky at times?  Does it make you cringe when you get notes from parents with these all mixed up?  Although it drives me bonkers it reminds me that we need to help out students learn the difference.

Use these mini-posters in your classroom as a reminder of the differences between the three.


Then, use the included flip book to have students write a sentence using each of the three words.

If you'd like to pick up a copy I've posted it for FREE at my TPT store.  Enjoy my friends!

New Year's Planning

Who's ready for Christmas? I wish I was, but I am no where near ready.  I've spent the day making Christmas baking, but am embarrassed to say I have so much to do!

However, I feel more on the ball at school.  My student gifts are wrapped, the concert is this week and I'm planned ahead - wahoo!

Speaking of planning ahead ... I've updated my New Year's mystery picture for 2015 which you can download for FREE HERE at my TPT store.

Students will practice pace value by solving the find the number given the tens and ones, then find the number on the hundreds chart and color.

I hope this helps get you planned for the first day back after Christmas break and if you love it as much as I do then I you'll love he assortment of tens and ones mystery pictures you'll find in my store.  They're available on their own or in a bundle.
Good luck getting ready for the holidays!!

December already?

I can't believe that tomorrow we flip our calendars to December.  I have so much to do between now and the 'big day!'.  Like every other year, it'll happen I know!

Are you working on subtraction with your kiddos this month?  If so, I've just posted a new math station game that will help with subtraction fluency.

Students will either spin a spinner or roll two dice (the choice is yours!) and subtract the number from 12.  I have included a an 'I can' student instruction card to help make this a ready to use work station.  If you're rationing your color ink, don't fret each page is also included in black and white.
You can find this HERE at my TPT store.
