December already?

I can't believe that tomorrow we flip our calendars to December.  I have so much to do between now and the 'big day!'.  Like every other year, it'll happen I know!

Are you working on subtraction with your kiddos this month?  If so, I've just posted a new math station game that will help with subtraction fluency.

Students will either spin a spinner or roll two dice (the choice is yours!) and subtract the number from 12.  I have included a an 'I can' student instruction card to help make this a ready to use work station.  If you're rationing your color ink, don't fret each page is also included in black and white.
You can find this HERE at my TPT store.

While your at more store under my Custom Categories click on Christmas to be taken to my other Christmas products.  You can also find them by clicking HERE.

As always, the first 3 people who comment on this post with their email will get a copy of this product :)

Happy December!!!!

I Spy Christmas!

Last evening I uploaded a revised I Spy Christmas pack to my store. The original wasn't as 'printer friendly' as I'd like and didn't include a black and white version so the update was necessary!

I've included 4 I Spy pages in both color and black and white.  A choice of 3 recording pages to help with differentiation and an optional word search for students to find the words once they print them.  Of course, a student 'I can' instruction card is included for each option :)

If you already own the original head on over to TPT to download or simply check it out HERE.

As always, I'll send a copy to the first 3 people who comment on this post :)

Christmas Mirror Words

Happy Sunday!

Since Christmas concert practice has started it's gotten me in the mood for some Christmas shopping and some December planning :)

I've just posted my Christmas Mirror Words HERE in my TPT store.

We've just finished up the Halloween mirror words and my students have been looking for more so they'll be happy!

Students use a mirror to read backward words and record them.  I have included 2 different recording sheets to help with differentiation and an "I can" student instruction card with each.  All pages are also included in black and white.

AND I added it to my Mirror Words Bundle HERE and did not raise the price (yet).  So, if you own it you can download the revised bundle for free!

As always ... a giveway!  The first 3 people who comment will receive a free copy of Christmas Mirror Words.

Print, Roll and Play - Christmas Edition

Hi all!
I hope that this finds you all recovered from Halloween and having a great week!

A couple days ago I posted my newest Print, Roll and Play Dice Activities but haven't had a chance to blog about them.  It just **might** have something to do with it being parent-teacher week :)

So, you all know that I'm a planner and am pleased to say that the CHRISTMAS Edition is ready and in my store.

It's filled with a variety of dice activities including: tallies, ten frames, number words, adding 2, adding 3, even and odd ... the list goes on!  You can read more about it HERE.

These activities are all in black & white and every activity includes an 'I can' student instruction card for you to use if you choose to use them in math work stations.  However, they are great whole class and early finisher activities too.  Many of the pages can be differentiated easily by changing the amount of dice used.

So what are you waiting for ... just print, roll and play!

Would you like these in a bundle with new ones added as they are created?

As always .. the first 3 friends who comment will receive a free copy!!

Holidays Around the Blog

Hi there!  If you're reading this then you survived Halloween!!  Only a teacher would understand how thankful I am that it fell on a Friday!
Now that Halloween is behind you, it's time to start thinking about the holidays.  What better way to start than picking up some new ideas to help with your planning and a chance to win a $170 Amazon gift card and products from many TPT sellers!!!

I've teamed up with some of my bloggy friends for this amazing giveaway :)

First, I want to share an activity I use in my classroom in December.  One of my favorite storybook characters is Mrs. Wishy-Washy.  (What's not to love, right?)  I have a Christmas freebie in my TPT store that you can find HERE.
I have been spending time with my firsties working on story retelling.  This story retell rope was a favorite last year and I found them using it over and over again with Christmas stories other than Mrs. Wishy-Washy's Christmas.  The rope will prompt students to tell about setting, characters, problem, beginning, middle, end and solution.  Enjoy!!

I love Mrs. Wishy-Washy so much that I have a Pinterest board dedicated to her! Click on the picture to take a peek :)

Now for the prizes!!  Did I mention a $170 Amazon gift card???  That should put a dent in your holiday shopping!
a Rafflecopter giveaway
