Five For Friday and a Freebie! #5daysuntilvaca


I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching …Five for Friday Sunday!


For this math module, we have been working on story problems … I will be posting a blog post this week… on how I  attack this standard.  My students NEEDED lots of practice of these story problems.  Practice helps build their confidence and to get them to understand the vocabulary.  I created this story problem unit that is PACKED with over 80 story problems for 2.OA.A.1 standard!  It's funny how I was not even planning on creating this product, but my students needed MORE practice, soooo I found myself writing story problems nightly.  They are 50% off in my store until MONDAY!  Click on the pictures to check out this product!


In Readers' and Writers' workshop we are in our folktales, fables, and fairytales unit!  Here are some pictures of what we are working on.  We are reading the Cinderellas from around the world.  My class has totally fell in love with reading the different versions.  We are getting ready to start comparing and contrasting 2 of these stories!!!!!


In the afternoon on Friday, we get to have some FUN!  So my class chose to do reader's theater using fables.  This fables unit I found on TpT is amazing.  You can find it… here!  They read with their friends and filled out papers on moral.  Ummm #proudteacher that my little learners want to find the moral and read for fun!  #lovethem



My cousin, Kendie, coloring SOOOOOO many eggs!  She's getting a little CRaZy!!! hahahah AND ...I even found a kit to monogram eggs… #sopreppy


We are starting some fractions this week.  Here is a freebie for you.  It's the week before vacation and my little learners have MAJOR spring feverrrrrr!!!!!  So we will be DOING a ton of hands on activities … to keep them engaged and busy!!!!

Click the picture … for the freebie!  Students will sort equal and not equal parts on the flip book!  

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!


  1. Hey Amy, I am thinking about using your story problems with my 4th graders who still struggle with the language of math. I think it will be a great way to build their confidence before moving on to more challenging work. Thanks!

    1. HI! The language will allow your students to visualize what is happening in the story problem and MORE practice will def build confidence! Let me know how it goes!!!!!
