Free Shape Clipart!!! Updated with hexagon and trapezoid!!!

So I couldn't wait!  I had to post the shape clipart freebies for you to use.  You can use these in your class, for items you sell, or however you see fit.  All I ask is you say they were created by me.  :)  I am going to start selling on TPT, so I would love some free publicity from all of you!  ;)
Here are the Shapes that you get in this free download!!!

I would love some feedback from you guys!  Is there any other shape that I missed???  Do they look alright?

You can download the shapes here.

I added a correct hexagon and a trapezoid.

Now Board Review and a Giveaway!!!

I was asked to try out a fantastic new interactive whiteboard that is affordable for teachers.  It is called the Now Board.  It looks like this:

It is tiny and light weight! 
 What I like the most about it is the price.  
Can I say Donor's Choose????  Extra TPT money???
I also like that it isn't taking up a huge amount of space in my classroom.  I can project it on any surface.  What a space saver!  The software was so easy to use and came with an excellent library of activities that I could easily use.

Here is a little video about the device:


I also loved the wand that came with mine!

It looks like a pointer!  The kids loved it!!!
The only negative was that it was a little more difficult to calibrate on a textured wall.  It was much easier to calibrate on projector screen, bulletin board, or whiteboard.  I do love that it was portable and I could set it up on a wall and use it as a center for my students.  My current Smartboard takes up so much space that it hinders my room organization.  This board fixes that!

For reviewing the Now Board, I am able to give my fellow bloggers the opportunity to win a $100 Learning Resources Gift Card!!!!  I think I could spend that in about 6 seconds!!!

To enter, you must like the Now Board on Facebook and tell them I sent you!

Frames for Teachers!

Here are some frames that I made for my class and thought I would give them to you guys for free.  If you want to use these on anything you sell, feel free to do so!  :)  I am going to try and upload free graphics each week for you all to use on anything you make for your class or to sell, in addition to things that I will sell on the site.  
Just click below to download!

This is nothing major, but I thought someone could use them!  Have a great rest of the week!

Next week my freebies will probably be my shape clipart that I made to go in my own class. 
 Here is a sneak peak!
