Monster Measuring

My latest little project was inspired by the fact that my measurement lesson for this week is going to land on Halloween!  So, I created a set of monster cards to hide around the room for the students to measure.  I tried to keep if from being too Halloween-y, that way it could be incorporated any time of the year.  Monsters are always fun, right!?  I'm excited to try it out!  I like any activity that gets the kids up an moving for a change.  :)  Click on the images below to check it out at my TpT store!

All of the clip art, frames, and backgrounds were found at!  Be sure to check it out!  All of the clip art is adorable and FREE!  :)

Monster Descriptive Writing {Freebie}

So, I haven't posted in FOR-E-VER!  
(Every time I emphasize that word...this is what I think of...)
If you think the same thing, then we probably had very similar childhoods.  :)

I still don't have much time to post (Parent-Teacher Conferences are this week...eesh), but I thought I would at least share a quick freebie!  Our class will be working on descriptive writing next week.  I'm going to read I Need My Monster to the class and then we will be writing our own monster descriptions and then drawing a detailed picture.  Click on the images below to download the Monster Writing freebie from Google Docs.
