bees and a winner!

Hey y'all! It's Rachel from the tattooed teacher today!
it's the last day of our Spring Fling freebies! 
I added a little something to "spring-ify" my insect unit! We have to teach our units based on our district's kit rotation, so we had our insects in the fall. Sad face.
But we will revisit them again with an earthworm day on Earth Day and again with bees and butterflies in April (which is today! how did that happen!?)

This freebie includes bee specific graphic organizers and a brand new minibook! My kiddos love little books! They hoard them in their book boxes!

Click the picture to download! It's only available to our Owls readers (I won't post on TpT until next week)!! I hope you love it!


Need more on insects?
check my units out! 
Each of the bee organizers came from here! This is a great intro unit!


Mealworms! one of my best sellers!

And here are two lifecycle files!


Stay Buggy!
and before I go! Here's our winner of the spring fling giveaway!

and don't forget all this goodness from my owl friends!

Spring Fling Freebies Continued

Hey everyone! We decided to keep the Spring Freebies going for a little while longer! 

 I'm here to share a few Easter themed freebies with you.  These all are freebies from early on in my blogging days (be gentle, please!) but they've remained popular during each Easter season.  I saw this cover all over Pinterest last year.  The words are the sight words my oldkindergarten team uses so they don't follow a strict program.  There's also a blank one so you can use your own words.  Click the picture to download it from Google Docs.
                                 
Because it was so popular, I created another set.  This set includes the Dolch Primer words.  Click the picture to download it for free from my TpT store.  I wouldn't hate you if you rated it or followed me while you're there either!
 
I also created color by numbers for math.  First, I created an addition set.
(Click the picture download)
And then I made a multiplication set.

Spring Fling Freebies Continued


Hi everybody! It's Courtney from Swimming into Second. Well, guess what? The freebie fun is not over. I'm here today to share another freebie with you. I've been loving all these spring freebies because, well, I love spring. My allergies do not but that's okay. Since I live in the allergy capital of the United States, this is just a part of life. (I'm not even kidding about this. There was a study and everything... haha. Here it is. )

 I decided to make a brand new center and offer it up as a freebie. I know my students need some help with prefixes so I hope this helps you out too. Click on any of the images to download.

Hey everyone! It's Jen from Teacher by the Beach (formerly, The Teacher's Cauldron)
Teacher by the Beach

I'm here to bring you the NEXT freebie in our Spring Fling!



This freebie comes from my April Common Core Literacy Menu centers pack.



I took a few of the pages from the "Add-Ins" section after all of the centers to let you try out! This is just a taste of what's included. But, they are some of the pages that I'm constantly using... SWBSF organizer to help us with summarzing, which is ALWAYS a hard concept...they always want to give like EVERY detail of the story! lol. I also included an evaluation page that I use a lot...especially for my "quick finishers." Click the picture to download the freebie printables!

Here's what's included in the rest of the "Add-Ins" section....




And if you're interested, here are the centers that are included in the pack...

Make sure you go back to the beginning of the week to get the rest of the fabulous ideas that have been posted! And check out the links below to check out all the fun Spring-Themed resources.

Spring Fling Day 3 FREEBIES!

2nd Grade Stuff

Hey everybody!  It's Jamie from 2nd Grade Stuff here today to share with you a fun spring FREEBIE as part of our Owl-ways Be Inspired Spring Fling FREEBIES!  :)


I have an entire collection of seasonal ELA graphic organizers/printables in my TeachersPayTeachers Store.  These printables can be used in a variety of ways. Aligned with the Common Core Standards, these activities will keep your students learning important skills while having some seasonal fun at the same time!

The ELA printables can be used with any of your favorite seasonal picture books. I often find a great variety of seasonal picture books in the book orders for my classroom. I like to use these as a read-aloud and have the students complete the skill sheet. You could also provide these printables as a center and let the students independently read the seasonal books and complete the skill sheet. They may also be used as homework, morning work, early finisher work, a time-filler, or for a substitute teacher. Lots of possibilities!  I try to provide rigor while having a little seasonal fun as well – the best of both worlds!  See the pictures below for an example of how I use these printables in my classroom.

This is a story about a caterpillar that envies all the other insects that can fly.  His response to these other characters and his problem is too cute - the story has a sweet ending.  The printable below is directly aligned to the Common Core Standards and is perfect to use with this book.

This is a story about a bee that learns a very important lesson when he finds himself in quite the trouble!  The printable beside the book, again, is directly aligned to the Common Core Standards and will assess your students' knowledge of the moral of the story or lesson learned.  I just love the cute little insects on this set of printables.

Today, I'm offering you a FREE SAMPLE of my Spring ELA Printables!  Just click on the image below or {click here} to download the FREE SAMPLE!


If you like the free sample, you can check out the entire product in my TPT Store!  I think you and your kiddos will enjoy using the graphic organizers/printables to spice up your curriculum in the spring time!  You can click on the image below or {click here} to check them out in my TPT Store.
