Get ready for Shark week!

My students LOOOVE sharks and next week is the perfect week to learn about sharks. 
I have compiled some useful sites that will help you next week.

The first one has lots of facts and useful information:

The Shark Trust

The second one is

It has some shark games and videos!

 You know that I am from Spain so I love when I can find Spanish resources:

Some games to learn about sharks. Who doesn’t love a memory game?

The last site has some good information too but I have linked directly with the didactic materials. You can download a pdf with tons of information and some worksheets. Everything in Spanish!

For more Shark fun check out Jennifer from First Grade Blue Skies. She is having a giveaway on her blog with the Glyph Girls.

I’ll be back on Monday with a great Shark Freebie! 🙂

If you still need more shark ideas check out my Shark unit on TPT.

Learning about polygons

We’ve been learning about polygons recently. We used some online games on the Smartboard. The kids loved them so I wanted to share the online.
All of them are in Spanish, but you’ll find different levels. I used all of them in my second grade classroom.

Have fun!



We used the Polygons Fold & Learn craftivity. It was super easy to put together and it was a good review before the test. You can find it in my TPT store.

Feliz dia de la Tierra

I know I am late… We don’t celebrate Earth day this week, but I thought I could share some useful resources with you:

All these online activities are in SPANISH. You can use them on your smart board to teach about recycling.
The first two are very simple. You just need to separate the residues. These are very basic so could be easily be used in Kindergarten classrooms too.

This one is a whole site dedicated to recycling glass. You’ll see lots of great printables, games, downloadable images and teaching materials.
My students love the recycling chain.

 This is a whole site dedicated to recycling in general (Enseñar a reciclar). It can be used for any grade because it has many different games depending on the age. Check out the downloadable materials!

Hope you have a great week and you save many trees! And please check my Earth Day craft, it is featured on Erica’s blog: I am so excited that she will be using it with her students this week!
