Area and Adverb FREEBIES plus some cute tops!

We are on our 4th week of measurement in my class!  PTL the rulers are put away this week because we've moved onto learning about area!  After 3 weeks of having toys, drumsticks, weapons...rulers around the classroom I'm glad to have them out of sight again :)

We kicked off our study about area with these little Area Robots!  My kids LOVE to create anything and everything, and the robots were a hit with my boys especially!  You can get this freebie by clicking {HERE} or on the pictures below!
 I did only give them a half sheet of the grid paper because I have 43 students between my 2 classes!  I have nowhere to display or put 43 full-sized robots, ha!

 After working with adverbs last week, I decided we still needed some practice differentiating between adverbs and other words.  So, I created some sorts for morning work.  You can get those sorts for FREE also!  We sort the words in our spirals, but you could also just split a piece of paper in half and sort away :)  We color-code them first and then cut/glue into their groups.  We are also going to choose some of the words to write in sentences later on!
And, I'll leave you with some pictures from this weekend!  Here we are celebrating my birthday on Friday night!  Remember me talking about The Mint Julep?!  {Insert shout-out to THE Hope King for introducing me to this site ;)}This cute green shirt came from there!  I sure do love that online boutique!  Although my bank account still blames Hope for the missing money :)
 Every Sunday before we get out of the car for church Joelle says, "Let's take a picture Mama!"  And, I'm A-OKAY with that!  I'll take a picture with this cutie anytime!  This Chevron shirt came from Movida (a sweet little store I found in Dallas, plus they have a few things on their website) BUT, they also have some similar ones at The Mint Julep!  Seriously, a one stop shop!  And, no they aren't paying me to promote them, ha!  I just love them THAT much!
Here's to a good and hopefully FAST week!

Thanks so much for the freebie! I picked up your prefix and suffix one and it really helped review with my second graders! We are working on adverbs this week so I got really excited when I saw that you had another freebie! Your outfits are darlin' and I need to go check out some of those stores!

Thank you for the FREEBIE! It came at a perfect time! We are in our measuring unit right now with area coming up on Wednesday. I'm excited to do this with my kiddos!

I can't tell you how much your blog has improved my teaching! Thanks to your PowerPoint videos, I've learned to "cutesy" stuff up! Thanks to your freebies (which always come right before I need them), my kids have had so much more hands on and sorting practice! I appreciate all you do! However, my husband does not love my new love of the Mint Julep Boutique!!

Rosemary said...

Thank you for the robots and the adverb sorts! Love to see your photos of your precious girl.

I wish I could teach ENglish so I could use your freebies. :)
Love the store and those cute family photos.

Thanks for some great freebies. I really like the work you put into the adverb sort. Adverbs are not easy for students to grasp, so thanks for providing fun, extra practice! The robots are really a super idea for hands-on area practice!

Sarah said...

I love coming to your blog for great teaching and organizing ideas. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

I just found your website and I LOVE it!! I have ordered several of your items from TpT as well!! I was curious what program you use to create all your neat packets and mix and layer the graphics?? I don't have a blog but my email is laura.styron@carteretk12.org if you have any advice on how I can create some of my own cute sheets etc.
