Fun idea for 'planning' the summer

75 Things to do with your kids (many are FREE)..Traditions they will remember. Someone wrote: "Best list I've ever seen! So many things I'd never heard or thought of!"

Baking Soda Clay. This is like Crayola's Model Magic. For kids and adults. So many possibilities for this. I love making things with mediums like this!

101 Almost Free Things to Do With Your Kids This Summer: For Our Parental Involvement Specialist to share

Wish i knew this when I was babysitting! Crayon hot rocks: If you have not done this yet, you need to. Simply warm up the rocks in the oven (I did 220 for 10 minutes), then put them on a stack of newspapers (or something else you don't care if it gets crayon in it) and let the little ones go to town. Just remind them it is hot. I have done it with 2 1/2 year olds with no problem. My little lady often brings in rocks for me to "cook" so she can paint them

Crayon Art...now this is even cooler than the other kind of crayon art! Use to make a big map.

Such a creative list of summer activities! "Laminate some articles you've been wanting to read, turn on the sprinkler, and lounge in the sun while your kids play and get wet"

This is awesome! Crafts for kids can look like a million bucks.

DIY Twin Corner Beds With Storage

It's a shower curtain (liner) taped to the kitchen floor. The road is drawn on with permanent marker and the kids can color to their hearts content then drive their cars on it.

Mini Foosball Table For Kids - I love make your own toy projects!

This is really fun craft that the kids love. All you need is shaving cream, paper, paint and a tray to put it on. Messy but easy cleanup!

9 hands-on activities for learning and practicing sight words. Great for classroom volunteers!

The ultimate round up of cool math games. The games are also sorted into grade level, so it's easy to find the games that suit the level of your kids.

5 Math Games Every Classroom Needs to Play - Freebie and blog post with details about how to play each game

Put math flash cards in a small photo album and students can answer the cards using a whiteboard marker. Great review! This is a first grade post, but just add multiplication or division flash cards and it works GREAT for third and fourth grade!

Lots of ideas for incorporating poetry

Here's a nice anchor chart for thinking about division.

Love this post - so many great links for teaching beginning division (a book list too!)

Texas History - Four Regions Foldable: This foldable is a great representation of the four main regions that students could make in class or within groups. On the inside, students could list the facts or interesting things about each region. This could be a great study tool for students to use when reviewing for a test or quiz over the Texas regions.
