Dollar Tree Tuesday's

So I stopped by Dollar Tree for baby presents for my friends. Within the gift, I add a book.  I also came across the crayon books!!!!!  I made the Frog Street Press crayon books in my classroom. I also made them into song and poetry cards as well.

I am teaching 5th and 6th grade summer school and got this Goal Zone game- it is way to hard lol I will have to made easier cards lol
 Here at the bottom there are 3 pens- they are a hit in my room- I thing the boys will love them.  They only write in black so they are just exciting to look at!
This is the inside of the crayon book. There are also sentences inside like find some flying friends.  I am thinking that I need to get a second set of these books though!  Will have to go back anyways lol

They only had these four colors, I looked through them all :(

With the recent buzz around math it got me thinking about math for upper grades. I will be teaching 5th and 6th graders this summer.  I am a firm believer in making learning fun!  So I took my  dominoes that we use for adding, subtracting and fact families.

I used Kinderglynn's Domino math pack with the firsties.

I also used her Doubles Pack.

Those sparked my creativity to make some multiplying games.

Get your very own copy of an innovation on that:

Our local college came for a visit. This time we made lightning. In the second photo, they put paper between the balls and we could see where they spark went!
