Mentor Text 5.11.14

Happy Sunday!  It's time to link up with Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text linky.  This week the theme is Math. We are getting ready to start our data unit in math.  We are looking forward to reading Lemonade for Sale to compliment our graphing lessons.  This book is about a group of kids that have a lemonade stand and they track their earnings with a bar graph.  Although the money and graphing part of the story are geared towards a bit older kids, we know ours will still love it and we can show them the general gist of a bar graph.  This book would also be good for an economics unit for younger and older students alike.  

We are looking forward to using our Summer Math Bags soon; they contain many measurement and data activities with a summer theme.   We have Summer Math Bags for KG, 1st, and 2nd (all of which address measurement and data concepts) if you're in the need for something new and fun in your classroom!

We have a FREEBIE graphing mini packet available for students to put their graphing skills to good use; all with a summer theme.  Click HERE to download. :)

Last, but not least, for one more day we have our End of the Year Superlative Awards listed for free.  Tomorrow they go back to a paid product!  This packet contains over 30 awards sure to make your kiddos feel great about their school year!  Make sure to grab them while they're free!

Have a great day!
