You know you're a teacher when... & Chilly Change Freebie

Since the Hubs is working today, I figured I would take the time to work on some more activities.  I dowloaded some clipart (thanks Hadar for the great tip!)

Being a special ed teacher, I focus on the essential skills; the ones that all other skills build on and the ones people need in day to day life (money, time, computation facts, basic reading skills, writing sentences, etc.)  I have a group of 4th graders that I work with and they are just not getting the concept of money.  Therefore I have been making tons of money activities so that I can change it up and keep them interested.  Here is the money game I made today and I think it turned out too cute if I do say so myself!  Feel free to download it here but please leave me a comment and let me know what you think if you do! 

I am also linking up with Kindergarten Lifestyle on You Know You're a Teacher When...  I just love this!  It is so true that there are many things that only those who are teachers and maybe even those who are married to teachers know and understand.  I have loved reading all of your "teacher knowledge" and thought I would share mine as well!

Have a great rest of the weekend!
