Five Fab Friday Freebies #5

Frog Spot Five Freebies

Well, here we are again for another round of 5 Fab Freebies! It was another wonderful and relaxing way for me to unwind this Friday. What is not fun about finding cute and creative things to add to your classroom for FREE? And downloading them feels almost like shopping!

1. Mrs H has listed some awesome
FREE Addition and Subtraction Key Word Posters
for your classroom! 
These Key Word Posters serve as a colourful visual, for introducing important mathematics ideas. Simply print and laminate each poster, then display as you introduce each skill.

2. K is for Kinderrific
as listed some very effective 
Pumpkin CVC Word Builders right HERE
They are a fun way for your students to practise sounding out CVC words AND deciding if they are real or nonsense words. Simply cut apart the pumpkin pieces, mix them up, and have students put them back together. Then they sound out the word and decide if it is real or not! There is a cvc word included that Australian teachers may have to veto. It obviously has a different meaning in the USA :)

3. Jessica Wilson has created a
Shape House Craft Activity
that I would love to do with my students when we first introduce 2D shapes. It is a simple craft activity to help your students arrange four basic two dimensional shapes. It also has some writing/tracing to go with it. These would look very effective on display in your classroom.
4. Grace Ferricks has posted a very cute and totally FREE
You can use these simple templates to create fun and cute snowmen this Christmas. This file contains a template for the body, hat, beanie and nose. Use these along with paint, glitter and crepe paper to make a beautiful Christmas display.

5. Ambedu has listed a simple, but very effective  
that will be perfect for your "all About Me" unit of work. Students can fill in information about themselves.
Check these out soon - you will not be disappointed. Please remember to leave some lovely feedback for these kind teachers that have shared their hard work with you.

:-) I think I know of which CVC word you speak.....Removing the "m' out of play would solve that dilemma I guess! Sorry! Glad you enjoyed the other parts of it though! My kids loved it!! Thanks for mentioning the activity!

Thanks so much for stopping by Debbie :) I hope you don't mind me mentioning the cvc word for Aussies. Trust me, they will not mind at all. It is such a small issue, and can be easily solved like you said. We are very used to making very small changes to accomodate US spellings and word meanings, it will not be a problem for us at all :)
