Hello everyone!  I am back with a fun freebie.  I think many children love pizza.  This game reviews long and short vowel sounds as students have fun assembling pizzas.

 
This freebie includes 10 pizza templates, pizza toppings, and a printable box to store the pizza toppings.  This works well for Daily 5 and guided reading.  This works well as a literacy center game.

Free Science and Social Studies Videos


Are you looking for a fun way to motivate students to read more nonfiction? Literacy and Math Ideas now has free videos to boost motivation!  I have gotten so much positive feedback about the reading passages in my products.  Now, I have videos to accompany my reading passages.  The newest video is a great introduction to a science unit about plants.



Do you know where your food comes from?  You just might be surprised.  Watch Literacy and Math Ideas' latest video, The Unusual History of Corn

For several years, I have gone into the wild (literally) to get inspiration for my reading passages. My travels around the world have brought me up close to giraffes and up close to wild monkeys. 


I also do historical reenactments to get a sense of what life was like long ago.  In the process of studying nature and working with scientists, you can find out some unusual and very interesting things.  My adventures will now be chronicled in short, high-interest videos.  Links to resources will also be available.

Poetry Center Free Poem and Task Cards

Hi there!
I recently have created poetry units for the entire year! My class loved them last year! I also made free task cards and drawer labels that you can display all year to go with each poem.

Each poem is only $1.50 each and comes with the following activities:
• Poem
• Missing words page
• Poetry response/making connections page
• Poem puzzle for pocket chart
• Memory game with rhyming words
• Word search
• Re-Write the Poem page-this is a generic page that can be used with any of my poems, that way you don’t have to copy a new page each week!
• Glue the poem in order page-you can either have them glue these in a journal, on a plain piece of paper. I have mine glue it to the back of the word search so they don’t waste paper. 
• If the students finish all of these activities in a given week, they have the option or re-reading previous poems or buddy reading!


Here is a free example of a weekly poem:




If you like what you see you can download a year's worth of poems and activities for only $30.00!!!



I'm working on a blog post to explain more in detail how I use these weekly poems in my Poetry/partner reading center. You can check it out here :-)
