January Pick 3 Pinterest Linky

Today I'm linking up with PAWSitively Teaching and Inspired Owl's Corner for their January Pick 3 Pinterest Linky.  I can't wait to share my top 3 pins with some easy activities that you guys can do in your classroom as well.

I'm always looking for interesting activities to engage my kiddos with extra spelling practice.  I found this pin from Katherine Marie.  You take your spelling word and then hide the letters in a snowball (crumpled up piece of paper).  The students have to race to see who can figure out the spelling word first.  She recommended to use letter tiles, but I will just write or type in the letters and then they can be used with each different group.  Super easy and not a lot of prep!

This year, I would love to have my students reflect and write their own goals for the end of second grade.  I found this pin from Tracee Orman and she shares this awesome 2015 goal flapbook freebie.  I can't wait to use it with my students.

I'll be starting to teach multiplication soon and I always love visiting Amy Lemons' blog for math ideas.  I found this awesome craftivity of hers that uses mugs and marshmallows to write a multiplication story.  PERFECT!
