Back to School Ideas and a Freebie!

We are heading out for the family vacay that I mentioned, so my posting will be spotty at best over the next week. So I am apologizing my readers ahead of time for a post that is somewhat scattered!

 I wanted to share some of the back to school items that I have been creating and gathering.

1. This is hot off the presses-our September math pack- perfect for the first several weeks of school when the students' abilities are all over the place (a great way to differentiate). Click on the picture to visit our TpT store.

2. Last year I used several pages from the great second grade pack from Babbling Abby:

3. I won this super awesome pack from Jamie Rector's (2nd Grade Stuff).  She did a giveaway based on feedback left on TpT and she picked me!!!! Woohoo:)

4. Our district developed "I can" statements for all of the CCSS. We will be expected to use these this school year. I have yet to begin this project, but here is my plan:
Print the "I Can" statements on sentence strips (YES! It is possible! I just read the tutorial on how to do this over at A Turn to Learn. Just click on her button to read how to do this!)

Then I will laminate and use them in this cute pocket chart that our PTA bought for each of us in my grade level from Really Good Stuff (sorry for the small picture!):

Last, I did mention a freebie:) It is an activity from the new September Math pack I wrote about above. Click on the image to download it for free from our store. Remember to leave us some feedback:)
