Ok friends...

Theme???

Gingerbread!!!

These plans are FILLED with free resources and some AWESOME paid-for resources. 



Remember...click the picture of the plans, and it'll take you to a PDF document to download...when you download the PDF, you can click on all the pictures and links to take you where you can find all the activities (TpT, blogposts, websites, or Freebies!)

The freebies are in the PDF you download to get the links in the plans, but you can also click the pic below


Some other AWESOME gingerbread goodies that I have and am going to find a spot to put them in are from one of my favorite people to shop from - Bubbly Blonde! She has a TON of gingerbread stuff!! 
Go check out her store!



And here are my math plans..... 


*****JUST found another freebie - from one of my fave girls - Queen of the First Grade Jungle!
(of course she HAD to post after I finished this post...lol)


There are TONS of freebies in those plans from some FABULOUS bloggers!! Make sure to download the PDF to snag them!

We're still working on subtraction with regrouping - I have to say....

I THINK they got it!! I had about a handful of kids that didn't get it last week, so I brought those kids to my back table and worked with them in a small group and had the rest of the kids do some activities from my Subtraction Sleuths pack.

Now that I have everyone on board, we're going to have EVERYONE do the activities in the pack.



AND....

I'm starting rounding this week....

Can I tell you??

I have created a FOOL-PROOF way to teaching rounding.

No lie.

I've been doing this for YEARS, but just recently got the clip art to update the file to post it.

It's amazing how well this works, even when I taught 3rd grade, when they were taking the FCAT, I saw them still drawing their hills on the test to help them out - yay!!

It sticks, I promise!!

And, I'm working on this little baby for the next few days....


I'm super excited about it! Different cultures is one of my favorite things to learn about and teach about!

Must be why I love traveling so much!

I'll be starting this NEXT week with my Christmas packs....
