My Favorite Freebies!

Hello, friends!! I have been working on this blog post for a while now, slowly adding my favorite freebies to it as I come upon them. As teachers, we definitely spend a lot of money on our classrooms, so it's always nice to find quality items for FREE!! 

Ok, first up I LOVE Cara's Reading Strategy Posters and so do my kiddos! They love the little characters and these posters look adorable in my classroom.  Click {here} to check them out.

Next, are some great bully-free posters from Lyndsey Kuster @ A Year of Many Firsts. I love to bring these posters out whenever we have a bully issue to help my students remember that we are a class family and we should always be kind to each other! Click {here} to check them out.


I love this next poster from Teacher Bits and Bobs and it is a great visual for the
greater than/less than concept ! Check it out {here}.

I have used this next freebie ever since I started teaching!! I pretty much love everything that Natalie and Rachelle come up with at What the Teacher Wants, but I especially love this telling activity! It gets my kids moving and they have a lot of fun with it. Click {here} to check it out!

I also love their punctuation freebie! We are ALL ABOUT punctuation in first grade!
Click {here} to check it out and snag it for yourself!

This freebie by Michelle Oakes is a HUGE time saver and it can make any newsletter look darn cute!

I use Babbling Abby's questioning cards in my small reading groups all the time and they are a real life-saver! I have them all printed out, laminated, and I put them on a ring so they are always ready to go. Click {here} to check them out!

I love this next poster, because it is so simple and clean looking. Not to mention that it gets right to the point and my students understanding what it means. Click {here} to check it out!

This next freebie is from Deedee Wills and I'll be playing it with one of my small reading groups! This will be a fun change for them and they will love this sight word game! Click {here} to check it out!

I am also excited to use this sight word game made by Kim Adsit! Click {here} to check it out!

I have used this next freebie for a while now. It is from Brittany @ Underpaid and Overblessed and it is a writers check-list  Each of my students has a laminated one and a white board marker that they keep in their pencil box. Whenever we write, they get it out and go through the check-list before turning in to me. It has worked like a charm and I won't teach without it! Click {here} to check it out.

This freebie from Erica Bohrer has everything you need to get organized when it 
comes to reading logs!! Click {here} to check it out!

I love this Small Group Study Guide and it was created by Sarah Cooley! Click {here} to check it out!

I love it when things are made easy for me, so that is why I love this freebie! This classroom motivator was made by Amanda Nickerson @ One Extra Degree and I love it! Click {here} to check it out!

I haven't used this next freebie yet, but it is on my to-do list. I think my students will really enjoy this fun math activities before Christmas Break! Click {here} to check it out!

I love these tags from Amy Lemons! They make group activities go so much smoother, because cute little first graders are still learning how to work in groups. :) Click {here} to check it out.

This next freebie is my very own!!! It is my featured freebie at TpT and one of my favorites! With winter coming, I will be pulling this out of my filing cabinet in no time! Click {here} to check it out!
