Margaret Nominates
Five Outstanding Freebies
 December 17, 2011

What a clever idea!  Students use clues to identify and cross out words listed on a chart.  Eliminating all the right words reveals a saying.  A motivating mental workout!

Sarah, Plain and Tall—Unit Study—Lindsay Flood—Louisiana
Wow!  This is a complete, well organized, well written novel study which will save hours of preparation time.  If you download this one, you MUST leave positive feedback. 

Alliteration Christmas Powerpoint—Brook Beverly—Massachusetts
This eighteen-slide power point presents detailed information about alliteration.  A super motivator for writing holiday poetry, song lyrics, sentences, etc. 

Christmas Math Puzzlers—Laura Candler—NC
Here’s another example of Laura Candler quality!  This free pack of holiday-themed word problems contains items for a variety of ability levels from grades 2-5.   Download and enjoy!

Similes about Christmas—Elementary Matters—New Hampshire
This attractive one-page freebie is a great work-out for students in the beginning stages of recognizing and using similes.  The holiday theme makes it even more compelling.

Have a festive, restful break!  Will be back on the 31st with another set of freebies.
