ONE - FEBRUARY SNEAK PEAK
As I stated above, I just couldn't resist introducing Valentine's games this past week. Next to Halloween . . . it's my second favorite holiday. Yes, it even beats Christmas for me. There is just something about all the love talk that makes kindness in the classroom peak for a few weeks. SWOON. I couldn't wait to get the LOVELY flowing . . . so I hit them with these games.
Working on counting on from any number.
The hot shots are counting on by 10s
|There is just something about using CONVERSATION HEARTS in the classroom.|
"READ MINE! READ MINE!!"
The giggles and cheesy grins are priceless.
|Are We A Good Match?|
The kids were looking to match place value cards (digit to base 10).
The kids begged to play again and again.
All of these games are available in my latest Math Activities, Games, & More packet. We're talking 13 CCSS aligned games/centers and a fun song from Ron Brown's Intelli-Tunes to help you get through the month of February.
Looking for a fun February Math FREEBIE that gives you a feel for what my games are all about? Check out Queen of Hearts . . . it's always a class fave. This one is "penned" in for next week.
TWO - PENGUIN WRAP UP
We wrapped up our unit on penguins this week. My favorite activities came courtesy of Ms. Amy Lemons. Her Waddle With Me packet is delightful. The penguin hats are to die for (sorry . . . no picture captured this year) and I loved the responses we received from her If I Were A Penguin Write. The kids got a kick out of this one!!
|They managed to work in oodles of facts.|
They actually are listening . . . most of the time ;)
THREE - KINDNESS WEEK
Our school participated in National Kindness Week and the kids really got into it. The 4th graders made and hung the sweetest posters around campus. This one was RIGHT outside the staff room door . . . you can't help but catch the irony and laugh your head off. #whatareyoureallytryingtosay
FOUR - BUNDLIN' UP
I am finally getting wise. It took a few of you to hit me over the head with some requests, but I am finally getting with the program. This week I bundled two of my most popular series. You can now snag GROWING BUNDLES containing my Sentence Writing Warm-Ups and my Math Activities, Games, & More packets. Since I know many of you have already purchased some of the individual collections, I tried to make up for it via super deep discounts this month. You can save 30-40% (depending on the bundle) in February. The price will go up a little every month until all of the packets are included (I am making them as we go this year). Sorry it took me so long to do this . . . better late than never, huh??
FIVE - SUPER SALE
I am participating in the Blog Hoppin' Super Sale this weekend. A bunch of us got together and put our TPT shops on sale. I am not too interested in the pigskin this year (my beloved Broncos aren't in and I am still moping a bit). However, I figured the BIG GAME was still a great reason to celebrate. Catch all of my goods on sale today and tomorrow. And, yes . . . those bundles above are on sale too! #discountcity
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me today. I hope you have a super weekend. I'll see you very soon :)
