Summer Freebies!

Today is the 15th of the month, which means it is time for Lucky to Be in First's Fabulous Freebies on the 15th Linky!!!

I have a few summer-themed freebies this month!  The first is this missing addend/minuend worksheet.  I love these because they challenge students' thinking.
Another freebie is this Days Left of School Countdown.  It's hard to believe we only have six days of school left! Next Friday is our last day.  It seems like August was only a few months ago!  I, for one, can't wait!  I'm ready for some lazy days, time spent in the sun, and vacation fun!
Anyhow, here is a photo of our countdown from last year:
I give each student a blank beach ball to decorate.  After they decorate it, I write a number on it.  The number stands for how many days of school are left.  I place the beach balls behind a die-cut sun that says 'Days Left Until Summer'.  At the end of each school day, we pull down a beach ball.  Whoever decorated the beach ball gets to take it home!  It's an easy way to add some summer fun and decoration to your classroom. 
I've put together a template you can download here!
Enjoy and make sure to stop by Lucky to Be in First!

TPT Sale!!!
It's finally here!  The BIG TeachersPayTeachers' Teacher Appreciation Sale!  It kicks off today, May 6, and runs through tomorrow, May 7.  EVERYTHING in my store is on sale for 20%, and you can use the TPT Code TPTXO to get an additional 8% off.  This is a great time to stock up on products for the rest of the school year as well as the beginning of the school year!
Here are some products in my store that might be of interest:
This fun packet covers both Mother's Day and Father's Day!  It includes two book crafts, a fill-in-the-blank activity, and some fun graphic organizers.  Templates for parents, grandparents, and aunts/uncles, as well as a blank are included.  Read my blog post about this packet here.
This is one of my favorite reading activities that I use year after year.  It helps students grasp the concept of reading fluently and with expression.  Students receive a story strip and must practice reading it several times before "performing" it in front of the class.  A fun award is included for the most fluent reader!  Read my blog post about it here.
I just LOVE using this unit.  Measurement is so fun to teach because it is very hands-on.  This unit covers all of the Second Grade Common Core Standards and comes with step-by-step lesson plans, daily review checks, pre and post tests, activities, centers, and much, more!  Read my blog post about it here.
This is another packet that I'm really proud of and love using.  If you are a First Grade teacher or have students who struggle with reading, this packet contains a lot of activities that cover segmenting words and how this can help readers.  It would be perfect for reading groups, intervention or remediation groups, or even whole-class lessons.  Read my blog post about it here.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
