Instagram, My Classroom, and a FREEBIE

Guess what.......You can now find MoreThanMath on Instagram!  Follow me {here}!  If you have an Instagram account, leave a comment below with your Instagram user name so I can follow you.  

How many days of summer do you have left?  I still have 3 weeks but the preparation has begun at my school.  I love starting a new school year! Check out my Wal-Mart finds from yesterday!

 turned into  this
I was so excited to find the variety of colors (at one location, in one shopping trip) so that I could make my shelves bright and colorful.  Here are a few more pictures of my progress in getting my school ready for August 16.
This is a picture from my Instagram.  Click the picture to see that post.
The beginning of my morning message wall.  The crates below my board are from Target.

How about a FREEBIE...

This 14 page download includes 12 puzzles that have students read a phrase and match it to the picture it describes.  The phrases use sh and ch nouns and include adjectives for you to integrate some grammar practice with phonics.  You also receive a picture sort with 12 pictures that begin with sh and ch plus 4 sorting printables.  Click on one of the pictures above to download it from my TpT store.  I would love to hear your comments and feedback on this product because I am trying to decide whether to make a bigger set similar to this with sh, ch, th, and wh.  Thanks!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

  4. Wow what a wonderful freebie! Thanks a bunch! I'll be putting it to slightly different use than most... I am starting my first year teaching this year as a middle school English teacher in France... and they sure do have a hard time distinguishing between the /sh/ and /ch/ sounds! Thanks for this great resource. I also LOVE your brightly colored room, and like NIck said... I love how the "Welcome" goes past the edges of the board!


  5. I am so glad to see that other people load the back of their car down too with all their teacher junk. That has so been me this week {ha!}.


  6. I like how you used the crates as cubbies. I have never thought to do that before. Thanks for the tip! And thank you for the freebie!

  7. Thank you for the wonderful freebie! It will definitely come in handy for my RTI groups this year!
