Elf Puzzle Template Freebie & Other Holiday Titles

Hey, guys!

Here's an elf puzzle template freebie if you need an easy way to whip up a review game in your classroom this holiday season.

Here are also some other holiday titles I have available at my TpT store.

This title is filled with activities for learning measurement facts and practicing conversions.

Merry Christmas Lapbook

And it's available in Spanish, too! I love doing this with my kiddos. Click here for the Spanish version.

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season in the classroom and at home!


Math Rings Game

 Well, ever since an epidemic of lice, pneumonia, and strep invaded our classroom this year, our nurse advised that we no longer use our book bag hooks to mass hang the book bags. So, I had this huge, white wall talking up space for no good reason.

I had already labeled the hooks with numbers 1-18, so after going to the fair the other weekend, it occurred to me to use the hooks and some plastic rings to create a math ring game.

I purchased 24 plastic rings from Ebay for around $12 (thanks, TpT!). I added some problems involving basic use of parentheses and algebra. All problems had answers ranging from 1 -18.

I wrote the problem on one side and the answer on the other (I used a Sharpie and then covered the numbers with a coat of Mod Podge for protection).

Now in stations, I will have students lay out the rings with the problem on top, solve each one, check the backs, and then place them on the correct hooks (I don't think we'll be tossing. The rings are very weighty for some reason.)

I'm looking forward to playing this on Wednesday with my kiddos. I'm sure someone will ask, "What do we win if we get them all right?" And to that I'll reply as I always do to that sort of question, "Satisfacci├│n en tu coraz├│n," ("Satisfaction in your heart.) :D

Hope you are having an awesome week!


Leaf Counting Smart Board Freebie

Hey, friends!

I hope you've all had a great weekend! I created a Smart Board game for the little ones today. Students count leaves, touch the turkey with the right number, and the turkey will gobble. :) It's a funny effect that I'm sure will be very annoying after a while in the classroom!

Just click either of the following freebie buttons to be taken to the download.

 I've got a lot of Smart Board games for the little ones that you can check out here.

Have a great week!

Multiples Mini Book

Today my students completed this multiples mini book. It's my third year using it, and I always enjoy it.

Students use highlighters or other coloring instruments to shade the multiples of various numbers. Students will begin to notice the patterns and these patterns also make it easy to check and grade the mini books.


You can find this in English and Spanish at my TpT store for $2.

Have a super fantastic Friday!
