Five for Friday...kind of!

Time for me to try another Five for Friday...although I may be a tad late! 

We've been multiplying like mad in my classroom lately, students loved creating these multiplication strategy foldables.  I was so excited to see my kiddies show-off each of their strategies (equal groups, array, repeated addition, skip counting, and number lines)!  Division here we come! Eek!

I just love having a set of iPads in my classroom! One of the perks, is no AR Test line! 

I don't know about you...but sometimes we just need a little break.  Including my third graders! This year my class loves to play around the world in small groups with their math facts or watch a School House Rock 3 minute music video.  Love it!

My kids always look forward to Friday's Trade-In at the Sweet Shoppe! Here are some of my goodies I've picked up from dollar stores as well as the coupons from Mel D! They are my kiddies favorites! I only put a few types of coupons at a time and then slowly add to the collection throughout the year.

Just a little snap shot that makes me squeal with excitement.  I picked up all of these microfiber cloths for $5 at my local grocery store! Seriously...of all places. These sit on top of the iPad cart ready to spruce up any of those grimy iPad screens.  

As always, thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend!


  1. Your microfiber bucket is so cute and such a good idea! I'm going to go search my grocery store for a similar pack. :)

  2. Microfiber cloth cute is that?! I just rub my ipads on my shirt. Am I not supposed to do that? Love your multiplication foldable. I need to pin this and remember this!!

  3. I am glad to see that another teacher uses foldables. I love using foldables. We made a foldable when we were learning our different addition strategies!!! Thanks for sharing.


  4. I love your multiplication foldable idea. We are on our 4's, so I'm doing that! I also love the microfiber cloth idea. My ipads look like my kids had lunch on them by the end of the day. Come on by and visit my blog and we can share some ideas.

  5. Love everything about this post! LOVE the multiplication strategy foldable! I never even thought about doing a foldable for different strategies! And I LOVE School House Rock! My kiddos always love it! :) And the rainbow colored microfiber cloths...super adorable!
