Top Teachers' Blog Swap and Hop...I Have a Guest

Hey everyone! It's Heather (aka HoJo) from HoJo's Teaching Adventures. I'm so excited about the Top Teachers' Blog Swap and Hop! It's such a fun event where you're going to get some great ideas and maybe even a few freebies along the way!

Monica and I were brainstorming what you might like, and we decided you deserve a FREEBIE! So I'm going to keep this pretty short and sweet, but read on to see what you're getting...

I started creating Magic Squares this past November. Basically they are puzzles that match up "magically" (or perfectly) when put together correctly. Here's an example of one -




Students will get to practice 12 problems about a certain concept, like addition in the Magic Square above.

Here are some Magic Squares in action -



So now that I've told you about Magic Squares, I hope you are excited as I am about them! But - just in case you're not - it's time to give you a freebie! Maybe then you'll be convinced that this is a FUN educational tool that will have students begging for more.

Click on the picture below to get your FREE and EXCLUSIVE Blog Hop and Swap Magic Square 0-5 Addition FREEBIE!
There is one little catch with this freebie - it's only available for FREE until Saturday, July 7th at midnight CST. So make sure to download your copy before then!

Well, folks, that's all for me! I hope you'll consider jumping over to my K-6 blog to say "hi"! =)
