Spring Has Sprung...FINALLY! FREEBIE!!!!!

       YES, FINALLY!!!! Spring is here! Rhode Island has been slammed with snow this year so I am so glad it is just about over (well, hopefully). Since I didn't substitute today, I figured why not make a new product! Being that it was beautiful today, I probably should have done something outside, but oh well! I am happy I completed a new product!
       So, there it is! COMMON CORE aligned addition and subtraction pack! This product is the spring version of my Christmas, Valentine's Day, and St. Patrick's Day packs. It is available in my TpT store.
       Also, I just wanted to remind everyone about my giveaway that is currently going on. If you are the winner you will get to choose ANY product you want from my store! Whatever your little heart desires! ;-) You can enter below (on the post right before this one).
       Well, I hope everyone is getting through their week! Just think two more days and then the weekend! Thank you for stopping by! Best of luck to you in the giveaway! Crossing my fingers for you all! ;-)

SPRING SALE & Common Core Math! 3D Shapes FUN!

     SPRING SALE IS HERE!!! Alright spring is right around the corner so let’s start it off right with a little spring cleaning. Time to clean out your carts and make room for all the new and wonderful products I have seen on TpT lately. I am going to be doing some spring cleaning myself. I have had some awesome products on my wishlist for a while now! But, anywhooo, my store entire store is 10% off for 2 days only (March 18th & 19th)! That brings some of my items to under $2!
     Also, I wanted to give you a little sneak peek into this coming week. I will be having a giveaway later this week. I won’t tell you what product is in the giveaway just yet, but I am really excited about it! Check back later this week for more details.
     Ok, and as I continue to ramble on, I would like to show you a few pics from math today. 3-D SHAPES! So, I have been subbing for this one teacher frequently so she lets me do a lesson of my own here and there. It is great! For today, we learned about 3-D shapes in a whole new way! They LOVED it!!! (Thankfully, this lesson was allowed because none of the students had allergies! Yay! ) Check out the pictures of our lesson today!


Here are two of the students working hard on using the food to count the faces, edges and vertices! They did so well! I mean, maybe the fact that they knew they could eat the food after was a huge incentive! ;-)

We used cheese balls to represent spheres, Hershey’s chocolate for rectangular prisms, Starburst for cubes, marshmallows for cylinders, and Bugles for cones.

     We also used this cute poem that I found on Pinterest. The students were a little curious why the soda was called “soda pop”. Being in RI, we don’t refer to soda as pop, but oh well! Overall, a great subbing day!

      Ok, well dinner time for me! Thanks for stopping by everyone!!! Hopefully, see you back here later this week for the giveaway! ;-)

Phew! Finally! I just finished my Super Sight Words packs (1 pack uses DOLCH PRIMER list & other DOLCH FIRST GRADE list). I have been using these activities and games with the students in my after school program and they have really loved them! It is great to see how engaged they are while they are learning. Below are a few pictures from what's inside.

The bundled set of these packs is also ready! Yay!
Also, I wanted to let everyone know about my former cooperating teacher who I completed my student teaching with. She has recently joined TpT and has some really awesome products! My favorite one is her “Word Detectives” reading strategy product. It is a very engaging version of guess the covered word. I have seen this product in action, and let’s just say, the students LOVED it! The students were so excited and eager to participate! I encourage you to try her FREEBIE below in your classroom.

Thanks for stopping by! Back to school tomorrow! ;-)
