Fraction S'mores!


We're halfway through the week.  So far I've been pretty productive and I am getting super close to finishing my George Washington's Socks novel unit!  I always get sooo giddy when I finish a large project like that because I can finally see it all coming together!

Well, I snuck in a little time while Clara napped this morning to make a fraction freebie for you all!

I purchased this adorable s'mores clip art from Scrappin' Doodles earlier this spring when I created my Camping Themed Classroom Decor Pack.  It was too cute to be only used once so I thought that I'd put it to good use again with this freebie!

Check it out:



I'm a huge s'mores fan.  In fact, I refuse to make a fire in our firepit in the backyard if we don't have stuff to make s'mores!

So, hopefully you'll be a big fan of this freebie!  You can download it using the link at the bottom of the post!

Enjoy and let me know if you use it!

Summer Sweepstakes 2014: Week 6

Mornin'!  This weekend was one of those weekends were we needed a weekend to recover from the weekend.  (Ha - say that sentence 10x fast!)

We crammed a LOT into 3 little days and I woke up this morning exhausted.  Anyone else?

Well, we have arrived at week 6 of the Summer Sweepstakes.  That means we only have 2 weeks to go!  I know many of you are in your last few weeks of summer and have already begun to decorate and organize your classrooms.  However, have you begun to put any lessons together yet?  Well, I might have just the thing to help you get started and motivated to begin planning your first week or so.

My fabulous friend (Hi Michele!) encouraged me to make some SMARTBoard and PowerPoint Background templates for teachers who just don't have the time/energy/resources to make the slides look neat and professional on their own.

I decided to go for it, and I've been getting some great feedback on TpT.  I created 20 (more more) template slides for each content area as well as one for holidays.  Take a look at a sample set from each template pack:

{click on any pic to see all slides templates that come with the pack}




Each template is already inserted into the SMARTBoard or PowerPoint presentation (you get both!).  All you have to do is add the text that you need to teach your lesson!


Enter to win ALL 6 TEMPLATE PACKS (Say what?!) - yup - ALL 6!

Have a great start to the week!
