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.


Animal Puzzle Pastes

I created this product as a request from a very important person - my daughter! She has spent the last few days in bed sick, and today, when asked if she would like to complete one of our new Halloween Puzzle Pastes, she said "how about some puzzles that have God's creatures Mum'... talk about out of the mouth of babes!
My jaw near hit the floor. And the more I thought about it, the more I realised that I definately needed a set that included alternative pictures - for those of us that do not celebrate Halloween in our classrooms or homes.
So, here it is, an animal version of Puzzle Pastes. The numbers and sums are identical to the ones in our Halloween version, we have just included very cute animal pictures for your students to colour. The animals featured are: fish, turtle, butterfly, polar bear, seal, cow, sheep, fox, hippo and a lion.
Just cut the worksheet in half.

Cut the pieces out.
Paste them into the correct position, using the numbers - to make a picture.
If you would like to buy this item, it is currently listed for the special introductory price of $2 in my store HERE
