Transition Words FREEBIE

I am so pumped that Halloween season is here!!! Halloween is my favorite holiday to decorate for/teach with and I am so excited to pull out some spooky centers next week :-) Bloggers seem to come up with the coolest Halloween ideas!
On another note, since we started writing, I have noticed how much my kids struggle with using transitional words and phrases in their sentences and paragraphs. So, after we finish publishing this first piece we are going back to the basics. Beginning, middle, and end it is! I'm aligning that with using transitional words and phrases by talking about what kids of transition words go in what part of a story. To help with this, I created a little center that I'm going to use with my kids during our reading centers. I've posted it here for free! :-) Check it out by clicking the picture below...

My kids are almost done with their s'more writing pieces! That has been such fun for us. The only problem is, I keep running out of time to finish them because I teach reading for way too long every day :-) Hope your year is going well...the countdown til Fall Break is on for me!

I'm back...with a FREEBIE! :)

Oh my goodness, I have been MIA for so long! Sorry! Back to school has been crazy for me with a reduction in staff, new hiring, and plenty of behavior issues all around, but I'm finally feeling settled. I'll update you on how my year is going and our activities so far another time, but first I wanted to share a math freebie with you that my kids really like. It is called 1-2-3 Path and is good for working on number sense. Plus, it is differentiated with 4 different versions included! The kids color the numbers in order starting with the specified number to make a path. It's easier to understand once you see it :) Click on the picture below to download!

Hope your year is off to a great start! I finally bit the bullet and bought a Scrappin' Doodles freebie license, so hopefully I'll be making more freebies that are way cuter :-) Have a great weekend!
