So my kids LOVE dice games and I try to come up with as many as I can to keep them engaged. With the school year only having FOUR days left... this is just what my kids need!! Here's a simple little game to help review telling time even with a little competition! It's called Tick Tock Clock.
The directions and recording sheet are included! Enjoy!!

*Disclosure* This is NOT my original idea.
One of my favorite things I do at the end of the year is the Favorite Number Project. This is such a great and easy project for students to do to show what they've learned all year long. This project can easily be changed for younger or older grades too. So much fun! Here is the project I use and the rubric for grading. I'll post pictures as soon as I take them :)
Click on the pictures to download for Free :) Pictures to come soon! Enjoy!
What are some of your favorite end of the year projects?

We have been learning about character traits for a few weeks now and I honestly think the best way to teach them is to have the students describe themselves and their friends and family using the character trait words. I got the idea of having the students make character trait 'frames' to help describe themselves. We simply took a large piece of white construction paper and cut a large hole in the middle. Then we titled the frame and wrote colorful character traits around our frames. And Ta-Da...
The kids LOVED them! Hope you do too!
Happy Monday Night!

Ok.... we have like 15 days of school left. The kids have checked out... I'm about to check out. We've learned everything we going to learn for the year. We are on review. I've used all of my resources, games, etc. I'm in desperate need of some simple, low preparation, telling time activities. Please please please share if you have any!!!
Is it Friday yet???

What's going on!?!? I haven't been able to check anyone else's blog today.. :( I really sad. I hope that something hasn't happened and I have to go back and find all of them again. Anyone else had this trouble? HELP!!!
