Classroom Freebie Weekly Favorites

Free Yesterday.  Free Today.  Free Tomorrow

Classroom Freebies: Free Resources for Teachers
created by Teachers for Teachers

As a contributor to Classroom Freebies, I enjoy not only being a co-author to the site, but also a frequent 'shopper.'  I love that all of the resources provided are developed by teachers and they're free!

I recently posted a Guess the Covered Word freebie for SMART Board users.  Please click here to connect to the Classroom Freebie post and get your free download.  You can also view my two minute video to see how I use these interactive activities in my classroom.

My Favorite Freebies of the Week

I plan to start a new weekly segment based on my favorite freebies featured on Classroom Freebies.  I feel this will be a great way to highlight other amazing teachers and share my favorite picks with my readers.  Most of what I share will be items I'm using in my own classroom at a second grade level; however, if there is an amazing kinder of middle school item, I won't be able to resist sharing that, too.  If you have a favorite product, please leave the link as a comment below.  Be sure to check back every Sunday evening for my freebie favorites!

Common Core Math Warm-Ups:
4 freebie pages of math warm up activities. Each page has 5 different skills. It is aligned to the 3rd grade Common Core math standards. The preview is 4 of the pages from the packet so that you can try them out with your students before you purchase.

Measurement Task Cards:

Here are 16 fun measurement cards to use with your students. Each card requires students to make an estimate before measuring. Students will need a ruler to complete these cards. A yardstick and tape measure would also be helpful. Students can work in standard or metric measurements. A student answer sheet is included.

Critical Thinking Synonyms Puzzles:

These puzzle square games are a great way to get your kids to sharpen their critical thinking while practicing the important vocabulary building skill of identifying synonyms. It's a bit trickier than it looks, so it's a great one for groups or partners to try together. It's also great for your early finishers to try solo.

SMART Board Attendance:

Liven up your attendance taking and welcome your kids to school with this SMART Notebook file! Complete directions are included for you to change the names for your class.

Five Looks on a Book:

Here's a fun little activity and a nice alternative to the traditional book report. It's called Five Looks on a Book. Students select 5 adjectives that describe their book and then write one supporting detail to explain each adjective.
