1.) Teach fact and opinion? If you do, you'll want to click on the frog image for an adorable download from Pamela @ Teach4Real. This one is a keeper and already in my Fact and Opinion folder. Super for independent work, center activity, homework, etc. If you have a frog theme or animal unit going, it's simply a bonus!
2.) Julie and Krista have a whopping 30 page packet for you FREE if you're looking to challenge your kids with root words and prefixes/suffixes. This is one of 10 sets in their Greek and Latin roots reading program. It's designed to increase vocabulary skills in a fun way. It comes with quizzes, organizers, keyring cards, word wall words, awards, etc. If you teach upper primary, this is SOOOOO worth investigating.
3.) If you're a teacher, I know at some point you're dividing your students into groups. Need an easy way to put them into teams, groups, or pairs? Aileen has a little 11 page packet with a variety of cards and ways to do just that! These would be great to print off, laminate, and keep handy forever!
My "To copy and print" file folder on my desktop is bursting at the seams. I'm counting down the days until my "Craftivity" day with a couple of teacher friends. We plan to fire up the printer, laminator, and whatever else we can get our hands on that day to create all the goodies we want to create.
I say this every Saturday and probably sound like your mother, but don't forget to THANK these creators for sharing their stuff! If you truly like it, tell them that. I know when I get positive feedback on a freebie that I've taken some time on, it drives me to create more and more for teachers! Show them the love.

If I'm "M.I.A." a little bit this week, it's because my friends from Ireland are here along with some additional family. (The last count was 16 in my house!!!) In my best Arnold S. voice...."I'll be back!"
