Shape Freebie for my Fab Followers

Happy Weekend Friends!
I am swamped with report cards, but yet here I am typing away on my computer and making things for you (ok, so it was really for me and now I want to share with you! :)  This blog gets me in a lot of trouble!!  (but I love it!!).

So, I have my formal evaluation by my Principal this coming week.  I haven't had one of those in like forever!  You see, our district started this thing called Professional Growth Plans and I did one of those my last "observation year" (we get to choose-- hmm let's see... growth plan... someone staring at me... I chose the first!).

Needless to say... the "PGP" was short lived and now we are back to the good ole days of observations.  Gulp.

So, I decided that my Principal should probably come and see my math block.  Considering he had a Superintendent, Principal, and teacher from another school district come and see my math time WITHOUT him even know exactly what I do during math.  (if you ask me that should have been observation enough!). :)

Anyway.. there is a POINT I promise!
I realized that I needed some new math games for my Math Workshop time (read about my math block {HERE}).  So I went on a search for something free.  Nada.  I decided to make my own and wanted to share them with you!
We are studying plane shapes right now so I made some goodies to go along with that.

There are two pages of shapes with the names and # of sides/vertices- so helpful for the kids.

You can grab this for FREE if you click the above picture.

If you like it, PLEASE leave me feedback!


I am SOOO excited about two upcoming things... 
first, I will be starting something called
I will take pictures of projects/bulletin boards etc. of many of the grades in my building (anywhere from preschool- fifth grade).  This way you will get LOTS of ideas from lots of grades-- I was going to take pictures yesterday... guess who forgot :(
I plan to stop by school today or tomorrow and get this post up soon!! (and then hopefully make it a every other week or once a month thing).

Finally, I am so excited I could just scream!!  My blog is getting a MAKEOVER!!!  You MUST stop back in the next few days because it will be ready very soon!  :) <-----so happy!

  3. This is just what I need right now! Thanks so much! I can't wait to go back and read about your math block. Math is the most difficult part of my day, and I am trying to figure out how to make it better! Thanks again!
    Who's doing your blog makeover?

  12. Thank you! These are great! And just in time!

  13. Thanks so much for the freebie! I am going to use a couple of these pages in my summer school math class. I did find one little typo though--The Shape Bump game says "role" instead of "roll."
