Product for Payday Linky!

Once a month, those of us at Focused on Fifth will be participating in a product linky. Each of us will highlight a favorite product from our store.

My class's current favorites are my KABOOM! games. They have so much fun they barely realize they are learning. Not familiar with KABOOM? Here is how you play. You take the question and KABOOM! strips and place them in a can or paper bag. I like using Pringles cans.

The first student picks a strip and solves the problem. Another students checks the answer on the answer key. If correct, the students keeps the strip. If the students is incorrect, the strip goes back in the container. The next player then removes a strip and answers the question. If a KABOOM! slip is drawn, the player must put all their strips back in the can. The winner is the student with the most slips at the end of playing time.

Do your students need extra practice with place value? How about adding and subtracting decimals? My KABOOM! growing bundle includes all my KABOOM! games for a discounted price. Since it is a "growing bundle" I will be updating it each time I create a new KABOOM! game. That means if you buy the bundle now, you will be able to download the updated version at no additional cost to you. So the earlier you buy, the more you save. Since it is our fist Product for Payday linky, I am putting my KABOOM! bundle on sale. From now until November 1st you can get this bundle for only $6. That's an extra dollar off the already low price. These three games would cost you $9 if purchased separately. So head to my store and check it out.

Now head over to Focused on Fifth and see all the fabulous products my blog buddies are sharing.

What Are You Reading? October Linky.

I'm linking up with my blogging buddies over at Focused On Fifth for our new monthly linky, "What Are You Reading?" 

I love to use picture books to initiate student writing. School Supplies: A Book of Poems is a book I use to teach figurative language. There are so many great poems in this book that illustrate personification. 

The students search through the poems looking for examples of personification. They then pick their own school supply to write a poem about. It's a great first writing assignment. For a final draft you can have the students copy the poem on the shape of the school supply they write about. The poems can then be turned into a bulletin board display for Open House. 

Our "What Are You Reading?" linky is designed to give 5th grade teachers a place to get new ideas while share books that you are reading. You can share novels, pictures books or professional development books. 

Be sure to head back to Focused On Fifth and check out the books that others are sharing. We would also love to have you link up.

Pick 3: October Pinterest Linky

I love October in the classroom. The weather is finally cooling off and the trees outside my classroom are starting to change color. October also means the Pick 3 Linky is here.

I love doing team building activities with my class. I love it even more when they are holiday themed. Since we don't celebrate halloween at my school this will be a neat activity to do instead.
