Right now our Invention Unit is taking over our classroom. All the kids can talk about is what they are inventing. In class, they design their invention, write a paper to persuade people to buy their invention, make an advertising poster, and write a commercial script that they will use when they try to sell their product. At home, they have to make their invention. One girl was so excited she went home right away and made her invention! I was so proud! :) At the end of the unit we have an Invention Fair. The kiddos love showing the other kids in the school and parents what they can create. ((I am working at putting all of this fun stuff together in a pack!)) So far some of the inventions are Spring Shoes, Water Bottle Water Gun, Homework Machine, and Bubblegum pop! Here is some pictures of their work so far::

As you can see, we have been super busy! :) So one of my good teacher friends just started a blog! We met back at Macy's working at the Estee Lauder counter together, and she got a job at the school we work at and told me to apply! Last year, she was a 3rd Grade Teacher, so I never really saw her. :( This year though she is 1st Grade, which rocks because I get to see her a lot now! Check out her blog!
I, also, have a super fun giveaway for you to enter! Kimberly is having her 300 Follower Giveaway! Check it out! :) ((Click the picture to take you there!))
Here is your freebie! We have been working on multiplying and when we are done working on our math lesson, I love to have the kids do a fun worksheet! We had an Early Release Day today, so I created this short little Bunny Times 3 sheet! Enjoy! :)
