Back to School Freebie!

Hey everyone! It's that time again where everyone is heading back to school to sit through the lovely inservice workshops while they are busy thinking about how they are going to set up their classroom, when they'll have time to make name tags, and what they'll do special for the first day of school. It's quite a stressful week!  I thought I'd make your week a bit easier by offering a back to school freebie! This is a set of 8 different reading bookmarks you can print and laminate for back to school. I use these to put on desks for the first day of school, for rewards throughout the year and reading groups. I made a few different designs so they could be used in any classroom. If you have a specific theme you are looking for leave me a comment below. If I have clipart to match your theme I can make them and put them up on my TPT store! These will be free through the end of August so download them soon!  Happy Back to School to all my teacher friends out there!  I wish you the best school year yet! :)

Here is a sample of what you'll see. :)

Carnival Math Fun!

I started creating this math game at the end of last year because I meant it to be a review for third grade. However, my crazy busy life didn't let that happen! So here it is. . . better late than never! This game is a game consisting of 12 word problems including all operations. All of the word problems are multi-step to challenge your students. You could use it at the beginning of fourth grade or even then beginning of third grade with your TAG students. It adds in a little of the carnival fun into word problems that would otherwise be boring! This is available on my TPT store.

I'm wondering . . . how do you make word problems fun? I will give away a copy for free to the first three people who comment on this post telling us how you jazz up word problems with your kiddos. Don't forget to include your email in the comment so I can send you your free game!
