Early Elementary Smart Board FREEBIE and Other Titles

I've been a little quiet lately on FB, and it's mainly due to playing ping-pong with my hubby and finally finishing a set of 16 Smart Board games for kindergarten (my first love of six years). They are common core based, and each one contains a download for a printable assessment. I have had so much fun putting these together, and I am so appreciative of a group of kindergarten teacher who helped check and enrich these games with their suggestions.

All of the games are bundled together in a much more affordable pack than purchasing individually. Click the image below for details.

However, you can also buy them individually. Click on a picture for more details on each game. If you scroll through all the way to the bottom, I have a special treat waiting for you!

(This one has audio help, too!)

(Every word has audio help.)

So, did you make it all the way down here? Great! I'm giving away one of my Smart Board games for free on beginning place value. It also includes a download for an assessment sheet and a poke game for extra practice. As always, click on the image below for the download. I hope you enjoy!

Happy Teaching!

Spanish Word Fun with Cheez-It Crackers

I found these cute little crackers a while back and knew they would be fun in my classroom. Today was Friday, so I decided to keep the activity short and simple. Before the students could eat the crackers, they had to come up with a Spanish word that had at least 3 or 4 more letters. The student with the longest word won a badge on our Edmodo site.

The students took the challenge very seriously and came up with lots of great words: mesa, sabado, sabes, pez, dos, miƩrcoles, etc. The winning word was a whopping ten Cheez-Its long! "Reciclamos"- we recycle (Can you tell my green obssession is having an influence? :P). But I was also very partial to the sweet child who came up with the word "carro" which happens to be my last name (see above picture :)).

I finally had to tell the kids to stop playing and eat! Have you used this snack before in your classroom? Have any ideas or suggestions? I still have a box left!

Squinkies! Coordinate Points Graphing FREEBIE

Hey, everyone! Over the holidays, I picked up a pack of Squinkies for no other reason than that they were so gosh darn cute, and I'm sure I could find some educational reason for buying them in my classroom. Since we're learning about graphing coordinate points in my class, I came up with a Squinkies graphing game.

We have had a lot of fun with the game, but be warned, the Squinkies are very small and can easily disappear if they fall from the table.

You don't have to use Squinkies. I created the file with a graph that can be used with any other kind of small chips, markers, or game pieces. Here are the links for the free downloads:
