It's the end of the school year!

Tomorrow is our last day with our kiddos.  We've had a great year and we're both looking forward to family time this summer and lots of other projects.
Here are a few little freebies from this week that we thought you might enjoy!
This little freebie is a word/picture sort activity focusing on
r-controlled vowels that make the er sound.  These cards worked perfectly with the Two and Four Column Double-Sided Pocket Chart
that Homeroom Teacher kindly gave to us to review.  
Here is the four pocket side that worked perfectly for this word sort.
 The two pocket side worked well for a compound word sort that we also did.
We put the compound word on the blue side, and the two words that make the compound word on the green side.

We received this product for free in exchange for an honest review.
The opinions expressed in the above paragraph have not been influenced by the company or the free product mentioned above.

If you'd like a copy of this word/picture sort, just click below this picture.  We've also included a recording sheet.  The word/picture cards could easily be cut on the dotted line to provide more of a challenge for students if needed.   You could have students match the words to the pictures before sorting them into the correct column.

Here's another little freebie that we'd like to share with you all too.  
We like to reward our students that consistently bring back their math homework.  Here's a little insect (since we recently learned about them) inspired math award.  If you're not wanting a math themed award, no worries we've also created a hardworking award that can relate to any subject area!  Just click below the picture for your copy!

We hope you all have a wonderful week and we'll be back in a few days after we get some much needed rest and relaxation!
