Presidents' Day Freebie!

Happy Sunday, everyone!
I stopped by to share a Presidents' Day freebie with you! I have been using my Famous Americans flipbooks with my students for the last couple of months, and my students LOVE them. It's more fun than students filling out a worksheet about each person that we study :)

Today, I am sharing my Abraham Lincoln flipbook with you - click the image below to grab it from my TPT store!

I give my students the flipbook pages to assemble after we have spent a few days studying each of our "famous people" that we are required to teach in 3rd grade in Georgia. Once they have cut the pages out and stacked them, I walk around and staple, and my students get to work. Once they have filled in their flipbook information, they use the included writing paper to write a paragraph about the famous person. Easy peasy!

Click the picture below to see the other flipbooks available in my TPT store!

I hope you enjoy this freebie!! I'm linking up with Teaching Blog Addict for their Freebie Friday linky - head over to find all kinds of other freebies! :)

Favorite Things Linky + Hump Day Highlight!

Hey there!
I'm linking up with my friends over at Teaching Trio for My Favorite Things!

I decided to go with some of my favorite MUSIC! I'm all about some good music - I can't carry a tune in a bucket, but I love to sing along and pretend like I can! I'm a true Georgia girl, and I love my country music. My favorites right now are Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, and Taylor Swift. I love the message that each one of them sends through their music! Whether I'm singing in the shower or while driving down the road, their music always make me feel better :)

Don't forget to head over to Teaching Trio to check out some other Favorite Things, and link up yourself!

I am also linking up with Jessica over at Mrs. Stanford's Class for Hump Day Highlight!

The purpose of this linky is to share one thing that I am using in my classroom this week :) Right before Christmas break, I started teaching measuring to the nearest quarter inch...luckily, most of my students picked up on it pretty quickly! However, I knew that I needed to do a little refresher since we had been off for 2 weeks, so I pulled out these 2 products. My students LOVE playing Scoot - no matter what we're learning, if I pull out a set of task cards for Scoot, they get so excited :) Click on each cover page below to go to that product in my TPT store - one of them is a FREEBIE!

What are you teaching this week?

*Top 10 Insta Pics of 2014*

I {heart} Instagram. Like, sometimes, I blame IG on my lack of blog posts. It's just SOO much easier to share my quick pictures on IG right? But I also love to read other teaching blogs, so I promise I'm going to do better about blogging in 2015! :)
I'm linking up with Natalie at Teachery Tidbits for Top 10 Insta Pics of 2014 (some of my 2013 pics snuck in - oops)! So fun!
If you don't already follow me over on Instagram, click here to find me!

This is actually a picture of our bed in our old house, but it looks pretty much the same at our new house. Except the bedroom walls in our new house are a salmon red color - yuck! Painting our bedroom is on my never ending to do list :)

I love my owl door hanger!

Anxiety Girl = ME! :)

This still makes me laugh SO hard - "Airwrecka McBride"

This is one of my favorite end-of-the-year gifts!

You aren't fingernails.

The keys to our new house that we bought this summer!

Ahhhh...first day fun!

Most definitely.

I saved the best {and most popular} for last! Yes, I met The Property Brothers this summer at a vendor event. They were just as goofy (& cute!) in person!
