Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives

One of my readers suggested a great idea that made me think "Why didn't I think of that?". She asked if I would create an I Spy with nouns, verbs and adjectives.  At first I wondered how to go about it, then thought ... why not get them to find the words then decide which type of word it is?

Here's what I came up with and I'm so excited:

I included anchor charts to help with a mini-lesson and to leave at the station, 'I can' cards to go with the recording sheets, four hidden pictures and everything in color and black & white.

The best thing ... it's NO PREP! Just print, add magnifying glasses and go!

You can find it HERE at my TPT store and in my bundle HERE. If you own the bundle then just redownload to pick up the new addition :)

I'll send a copy to the first 3 people who comment on this post and it's on sale in my store for the rest of the day :)

Happy Sunday!

Play Dough Fun!

Happy Sunday and Happy Fall!  The leaves are turning color here and even though I dread winter arriving I must say that fall is my favorite time of year.  We went apple picking yesterday and now I can smell the apple crisp in the oven - yummy!!!!

Last night I posted a new product in my TPT store. It's a hands-on play dough activity that will have your students 'building' numbers, number words and ten frames for the numbers 0-20.

I've included an I can student instruction card to remind students what they should be doing with the play dough.
You'll find a recipe for some yummy swelling play dough and every page is included in color and black & white.  You can find it HERE at my TPT store.

And that's not all! Here's a FREE alphabet pattern activity that students can use to 'build' their names,
You can download it HERE for free.

I'd love to send a copy of my number mats to a couple winners!!

Howdy! Are you ready for some Wild West math fun?

Howdy Partner!!  (sorry, not sorry!)  just had to say that to introduce my new Wild West Edition Dice Activities.  I've been loving my other 2 sets and just had to make a set with this adorable cowboys and cowgirls.

This learning pack includes 12 just add dice and go math activities.  You'll find ten frames, base ten, tallies, number words, number bonds and more!

I've just posted them in my store and if you enjoyed my other editions you'll like this one too!


You can find my new Print, Roll and Play Wild West Edition HERE at my TPT store.  Head on over to check out the preview for a closer look.

As always, I'll send a copy to the first 2 people who comment on this post.  I'm also giving away a copy on my Facebook page.

Corduroy freebie

Have you missed me?  Back to school this year has seriously been a whirlwind this year.  You'd think after 20+ years it would get easier ..... WRONG!

So, although I've been working on a new learning pack it isn't ready - (yet).  Stay tuned.

However, I peeked at my blog stats and I know you've been visiting.  To thank you for your visit here's a little freebie to use with Corduroy Bear.  It can be used on it's own, with my Corduroy Booktivities or the other coordinating freebies found on this blog (just look for my LABELS on the right side of this blog and click on Corduroy).

click HERE to download

Students will color by word family code.  I've added an 'I can' student instruction card so just print and add it to your station.

As I said this would be a great companion to my Corduroy pack.  My favorite in the pack is a retelling rope.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and I'll be back soon with that new unit I mentioned :)
