Five on the Fifth

Hold the presses! I’ve already posted twice this week.  That’s because it’s time for . . .
I’m mixing it up a little bit by bringing a little Instagram style to Five on the Fifth.  I was an Instagram hold out for quite a while.  I guess it seemed like a redundant Facebook, but I was oh so wrong.  Imagine getting little peaks into other teachers’ days.  I hope this post convinces you to take the Instagram leap if you haven’t done it yet!  

Five on the Fifth even has its very own Pinterest board.  You can follow it here.

First off, an Instagram find from Joy in the Journey.  You can find her here on Instagram.  What a fun way to get kids excited!

I pray you never have to teach the distributive property for multiplication.  However, if you must, More Time 2 Teach shared a fabulous idea called Distributive Doctor.

Collaboration Cuties has one of the most helpful linkies around.  The Mentor Text linkies create a collection of lessons that begin the way all good things in elementary school should--with a book.  Missed out on these?  Don’t worry.  The have a Mentor Text Page.  You can find all of their linkies in one convenient location.  Lucky you.  

Swoon, swoon, and double swoon.  I am in LOVE with Ladybug’s Teacher Files’ Grammar Morphology posters.  You math teachers feeling left out?  Don’t worry.  She has some for you, too.

Technology Rocks. Seriously. was the first teaching blog I ever found.  I didn’t even know there were such things.  Just though she was a cool lady to have her own website.  Flash forward a couple of years and she’s still super cool.  One of the cool lady things she does is create Google sites with collections of themed games.  You’ve got two and a half weeks to go people.  Let these sites help you make it.
