Pumpkin Sort Math Station

Do you ever have times in your life where everything seems to be going wrong?  Well, welcome to my week!  Just when I thought we were all settled back into school and things were running smoothly a main pipe in our basement sprung a leak.  We lost all of our flooring in our finished basement - I'm talking 5 rooms!  I must admit the most inconvenient thing is not having my laundry.  Before the workers left on Friday they hooked it up for the weekend and I have been a washing mad woman!!  On the upside, I never did like the carpet we chose for our family room - LOL!

Among the madness I found some time to finish my newest math work station.  My students have been working on more, less and equal as well as the number 10 so I combined these outcomes, the pumpkins I am seeing everywhere and came up with Pumpkin Sort.  This was the first time I used clip art from Whimsy Clips and I think they're adorable!!!

Here's a little peek:
I threw in ten frames, dice, tallies and addition sentences for students to sort into three groups.  An "I can..." card is included to increase student independence and the choice of color or black and white.  A recording sheet is included as a way of assessing not only the skill but also if students 'worked' at their work station. 
You can find this station at my TPT store
I promise not to stay away so long before my next post.  This week we will pick out new flooring and paint and I'm sure I'll get my mojo back!!
I'll send a copy of this math station to the first 3 followers who comment on this post.
Happy Sunday!!
