Themes Can everyone share Valentine's Day ideas?

I'm used to upper-grade, and I know primary makes a bigger deal out of Valentine's Day, so I'd better come up with something cute! However, we have a no junk food policy at my school, which means no...

Mathematics They won't study their mult. facts! Help!

This is my 1st year teaching third grade, and I made the mistake of starting with the 2's and 5's on week 1 (a 2nd grade standard, so most didn't have to study), and then the 0's, 1's, and 10's the...

Mathematics Please share multiplication facts ideas!

We have already learned our 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, and 10 sets, so we'll be filling in the rest of the gaps when we come back from break (I'm at a year-round school). However, I'm looking for any and all...
