Freebie Friday - Samplers & Earth Day Give Away

                   A Few Freebies For You & A Mini GiveAway
I am having a lot of fun creating leveled and interactive readers for my students. Each unit has at least 2 readers on each topic (ie. Sunflowers and Chickens has 2 readers for each sunflowers and chickens for a total of 4 readers). The readers are interactive with multiple follow-up activities. Some readers have students write to finish the sentences, label pictures or look for focus words. Pages are not numbered so you can determine the length and choose your own ending.

Right now, I have put the reader units We Can Recycle, My Pets, and Sunflowers & Chickens (and no the chicken didn't eat the sunflower :) in my TPT store for $1.50. My Pets also has a game board and spinner to use with any set of game cards including my freebie matching cards.

Today's Friday Freebie is a sampler not in any unit. As a sampler, it is 1 interactive reader with activity. Students color in the focus words and add to the pictures to answer questions about how we can care for the Earth. Includes composting, recycling, planting and using reusable bags.

Check out the free We Care For the Earth - Sampler. Don't forget to leave feedback or comments below.

Also, check out my free Subtraction Sampler from my Earth Day Math Write the Room unit. The entire unit contains base ten blocks, dominos, ten frames, addition and subtraction write the rooms.

  7. I think my children have a better understanding of math and strategies because we are able to go into more detail and really build upon the skills.

  8. I like all the hands-on lessons...however, I think the pacing is really fast for Kindergarteners.
