Five for Friday Linky, MLK, Jr. Unit GIVEAWAY, and a freebie!

Hi Friends!

Happy Saturday. Hopefully you are getting some much deserved R&R. I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday and a MLK, Jr. Unit give-away!
Happy Weekend,

This week, we worked hard on a STEM project -- creating marble chutes using toilet paper, paper towel, and gift wrapping rolls. This was probably one of our most fun STEM projects to date! Students got to stand on the table (oh, this brought and test out their chutes for the class to see. Many worked, and some had a few revisions to do. Fabulous, fun, and no money involved lesson. Always a win-win!

This week, we reviewed adjectives and did our Adjective Runway Show from Hope King's unit. This is definitely a favorite, especially for my second graders. It is always fun when you get to add a little wacky, tacky, and crazy to your lessons. Engagement is key. 

The past couple weeks, we have been testing out the app, Wonderbox. I don't know if you have heard of this app, but it is amazing and FREE! Students have choices as to what they want to learn about and then create projects based on their learnings to send to the teacher and their friends. My students love working on this app. I have put it as a pocket choice for them to do when they are an early finisher with work. 

I wanted to post a MLK, Jr. writing craftivity freebie. I hope you are able to use it! Link here: MLK Freebie Unit

Lastly, I am giving away a MLK, Jr. Unit! Just enter the contest below. Good luck!
