Weekend Freebies

Well this weekend didn't go as planned. It was supposed to start out with a kid- free night out with my husband and then lots of homework while the kids were gone to a sleepover. However, my family spent all Friday afternoon and night in my parents' basement while several tornados ripped through my town. Praising God for His hand of protection...no deaths but many damaged homes but they can be repaired and/or replaced.

So since I have so much work to catch up on I just added a few freebies to TPT that you might want to check out. Click on the pictures below to go get them!

These booklets can be used to help students write their letters/numbers quickly & correctly. Just make 1 copy of page 1 and several copies of page 2. Cut in half & staple together to make each child a booklet. Next, set a timer for 3 minutes & have students see how many they can write CORRECTLY in the given time. If they write any backward letters or numbers they have to erase it and correct it. After a few times of erasing, they decided to slow down and do it correctly the first time. We repeat with 2 minutes and then 1 minute. I have been impressed with how much their letter/number formation has improved since I started doing this!


It looks like the link on my TPT store isn't working...hmmm. When I click on it, it just goes right back to the main page. I'll look into it and see what is going on. Sorry for the inconvenience! Here is the direct link anyway...I'll keep working on it!

This is a simple (and short) fliphcart for Promethean board to practice distinguishing between story elements of characters & settings.

Love the writing activities! The link for writing the alphabet appears to be broken.
