5 Geometry Freebie Finds!


This week in my room we are finishing up our geometry unit and going to be focusing on multiplication/division strategies. As of now I have spent my $250 allotted classroom budget and now I'm on a poor man's mission-to find geometry review strategies for the week in preparation for our test. I think I did pretty well for having empty pockets. Check them out!




#1 on the list is a geometry matching/sorting activity

#2 an AMAZING review PowerPoint. 87 slides of magic. Very informational and real life!





#3 is this little gem here. A concentration game over lines. Who knew lines could be so exciting!?



#4 is a freebie from Dana at 3rd Grade Gridiron and it is an angles center



#5 Lets not forget symmetry! We did symmetric butterflies last week but next year I'm putting these beauties on my list- symmetric boots. My kids would have LOVED these.

Tomorrow is going to be so fun in math. I can hardly wait! Not to mention all of these goodies are so eye appealing they will make your heart melt.



On another note I have several students confused the j sound with the g sound last week when I met with individuals for monthly benchmarks. MAJOR TISK TISK. However I'm happy to say all but 3 of my students are now reading at a third grade level! Compared to the 6 I started with (that were below). I'm on cloud nine! The Reading Gods must be looking down on us.

I thought I'd share this amazing picture I found online.. I wish I could remember where it was from... isn't weather amazing?


Hope everyone has an amazing week. I love having Mondays off to work.. off work to work. Not really sure if that makes sense.

Slides Flips and Turns


Hello lovelies! We survived another week.. so far! We have bad storms heading this way. I also don't feel like I should have to be at work when weather.com clearly says: Breaking Now: High Chance of Tornadoes Today.. hummmmm....



We played this great game today in math over slides, flips, and turns! I'm for sure adding it to my favorites for next year!

Yesterday I purchased two awesome centers from Tanya at

A Class Act




(I also stole her pictures to share because I haven't cut mine yet)

I'm so excited to use them in my centers tomorrow and at only $2..they are a steal!

I will be e-mailing the giveaway winner and getting her address to send out her lovely gifts!


So Monday we had the day off and I decided to take myself on a little shopping trip. 3 hours of driving each way and way too much money. I have new clothes to wear for the next two weeks. Pretty pumped about that one!
