Linking Up With Love (Valentine’s Day Freebies)

I’m linking up with Tessa from Tales from Outside the Classroom for her linky that’s all about love.

Some people I’m loving are:

My hubby—I’m excited to celebrate three years of marital bliss this coming March!:)

My little cuddle bug, Cooper.  He counts as a person, right?!

 Some things I’m loving are:

How cute are these place mats and this towel/pot holder set?!  I love buying new seasonal decorations for my house and Home Goods has got it going on right now, I have to say.
I love the fact that I woke up to snow today.. even though it meant I had to drive to work in this:

My kids are I are loving QR codes, as I have mentioned about a million times already on here.  I just made a prime and composite number sort for Valentine’s Day that they can check with a QR code scanner.  It’s so nice for them to be able to self-check their answers so I can stay busy working with students during math centers. You can grab it for FREE by clicking the image.
I also have an even and odd version.  (Click the image to get it for FREE.)
Looking for something sweet that you can use all year round?  

Here's a set of task cards that students solve and then sort to help them master the various ways of showing multiplication.
It comes with these posters, which you can keep up all year round. 

Be sure to link up what you're loving right now with Tessa:

  4. Hi Kristin,
    I just started following your blog. I am pretty good with technology but always looking for more ways to incorporate it and get ahead. I am especially interested in going back and reading about the QR Codes you mentioned.

  6. Thanks for the prime and composite number sort freebie. We study this at the beginning of the year, but I have a few students who still forget. This will be a great center review activity for them.
