Students love their birthdays!

I LOVE how children look forward to their birthdays.  They start counting down months before and it seems like it takes FOREVER for their birthdays to get here.

On student birthdays I always take a few minutes for the other students to make them birthday cards.  But then there's always the question of what to do with the birthday child while the others are busy.  In the past I gave them a few minutes of free time, but then I thought ... "Why not give them something productive?". 

So I created this...

It's a mystery picture that goes beyond the 100's chart to include numbers to 120.  I'm thinking that they can get it started at school then finish it up at home.  It's available at my TPT store.

I've added this to my Mystery Picture Bundle so if you have already purchased it head on over to TPT and redownload it from your purchases.

If you weren't around yesterday you have missed something BIG.  It involves freebies, a blog hop and a giveaway.  Click on the picture below to find out all about it!
As usual, I'll send a copy of my Tens and Ones Mystery Picture (Birthday) to the first 2 followers who comment on this post.


  1. I would love a mystery this morning! Thanks.

  2. Good morning! I loved the blog hop btw..I did all 17 stops yesterday morning!

    1. Check your inbox :) I'm glad you enjoyed the hop! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. I love your mystery pictures...each one is so cute and you have such a variety! (I'd be lucky if I could manage to make the letter I as a mystery picture!)

    Great fun yesterday, BTW! (At the beginning, I kept trying to figure out how it was going to be a sentence like last time, but when I got to the rafflecopter it just said to enter words...wracked my brain for nothing!)
