S'More Day and Division Freebie

Two days left.  I can do this.  I can do this. I can do this.  Tomorrow is step up day, and my kiddos are headed to a third grade classroom for about fifteen minutes.  While I talk to first graders about second grade. I've been warning my kiddos about the importance of first impressions so they get their acts together and really wow the third grade teacher they visit, all while keeping their current teacher happy at the same time. Win, win. 

Today was s'more day.  We made s'mores, which surprisingly only a handful of my kids had ever had before,and wrote about what we would do if we had s'more time in second grade. Most of my friends wanted more recess, more field trips, and more fun and field days if they had s'more time in second grade. 

If you want to do a s'more day with your class, I have uploaded the craftivity templates and writing paper for grades 1-5 to my stores.

Edit: While I loved the big s'mores my kiddos made because they were adorable, I wasn't thrilled with how bulky they were.  S'mores are supposed to be tiny, right?  So I've revised the file to include big and little s'mores!
 I love, love, love the little s'mores!  They are more s'more size and the writing paper is now half of a piece of portrait sized copy paper.  They are so precious!


We still have some academics to squeeze in, we mastered the basics of multiplication, now it's time for division.  We watched a great Brainpop Jr. on equal groups and started working on these pizza themed mini book about division.  
 Today we went over the definitions for division and practiced writing division story problems. 
 Tomorrow we'll be working on solving word problems and hopefully doing a to be determined hands on activity to get them up and moving on our second to last day of school!
 
Pizza, Pizza Division is a freebie at my Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook stores! Enjoy!

I'm off to drink some coffee, the end of the year chore list continues!
