Five for Friday {Linky Party.. September 19th}


Five for Friday is a weekly teacher linky party where you post five random things from today or this past week and on your blog. Then, you come back and link your blog post up at the bottom of this post in the linky tool.Grab the button above and link back to this post on your blog.

Today is National Talk Like A Pirate Day- who knew?!?

Now, I am not a huge fan or pirates but I am never one to step back from a fun mindless, crazy special day. So my friend Mel asked some friends to join her in celebrating this fun day!

So.. I am bringing you a Pirate Theme Five for Friday

featuring 5 fabulous treasures!

Here we go…



I have a fun {free download} set of Counting by 5 cards!  These include numbers 5-300. They fit perfect in a pocket chart- or can easily be used on a table or on the floor!


We have been working on counting by 5’s past 100- so these will fit in perfect with my first graders!

Another BIG skill we are working on is recognizing and ordering the Days of the Week and Months of the Year. I have several sets but I am excited to add these fun pirate ones to my collection!


We use these in small groups while sitting at the table but I also have them in my pocket chart centers for independent practice.
