It's Time to MEASURE!!!

 
It's been a busy, FUN weekend so far.  Yesterday was the hubby's birthday and we took a day trip up to Smoky Mtns.  The leaves are GORGEOUS!!!!  We stayed away from the more touristy part of the National Park and headed to the backside which is a well-kept secret.
 
However, I guess I'm about to change that!  haha
 
Here are a couple of pictures of what we saw...
They reintroduced the Eastern Elk several years ago.  There is a fairly good size population in the old settlement of Catalooche.

What a beautiful sunset!
 
We are starting measurement in the classroom this week.  I am revisiting a couple of my former units. 
 
The best part for you is that they are FREE!!!
This unit is one of the first freebies I made way back to celebrate 100 followers. 
 
It has also been downloaded over 14,000 times (so perhaps you already have it!).
 
 It includes measurement of centimeters and inches, graphing, addition, and ordering of numbers.
 
It was one of my students favorites last year, and I know it will be a big hit again this year.

I have a similar item in my store that will also work well for this time of year:
 
You can purchase this unit for just $1.50.
 
I use both of these in small groups (centers or needs-based), but whole group works well also.
 
Another freebie I've offered before is:
 

 
Just add playdoh for an INSTANT hit with your students!
 
We've also been learning about IRREGULAR PLURAL NOUNS.
Here is an anchor chart that we used in the classroom.  My students sorted the nouns by singular and plural.

And last, but CERTAINLY not Least, is the adorable new unit I'm working on for addition and subtraction fact fluency.  Afterall, it's a new standard for 2nd grade!
 
I'm putting the final touches on it and hope to have it posted for you in a couple of days.  Be sure to check back!
 
Now, it's time to get out and enjoy another gorgeous fall day.  I hope you are enjoying yours also and that these freebies will help make your week go a little smoother!
 
Enjoy!
