Plot Like Woe! {And a FLASH giveaway}

Happy, happy Monday! By happy, I mean are y'all as tired as I am yet? And/or do your kiddos have spring fever already? Ha! It is that time of year when I start pulling out the "goods" to really get my kiddos MO-TI-VA-TED! Especially since testing is just around the corner. We won't talk about that right now...will we? 

Last week, we finished up our big geometry study. During enrichment time, my kiddos worked on graphing ordered pairs. This is a forth grade standard for the state of SC, but I am all about pushing the limits just a bit here and there! The kiddos were so in love with this boring new little skill. Maybe that had a little something to do with the fact that they were practicing by designing superhero masks and playing a game of battleships! No, no...I am not that creative, but my hubby sure is. We used a unit that he designed for his 5th grade friends. It was perfect in every way. Plus, they were super pumped to find out that they were working on a 5th grade unit. It was a nice way to end a big geometry study! 

Here is a look at an intense game of "Sink the Plot"...




They liked it so much that they have been praying for rain so they can stay inside and play their new favorite game! I would much rather go outside! Indoor recess is not for me! ;) 

If you would like to check this unit out, you can pick it up in my TPT shop! It will be on sale until tomorrow at midnight. Click on any of the pictures below to check it out...







I will also be giving this unit to one lucky reader who has made it this far! All you need to do is follow my Facebook page by clicking {HERE} and leave me one comment below! Don't forget your email address! I will choose a winner tonight at midnight! ;) 

I am off to watch The Bachelor! ;)
