Easter Treats

While grocery shopping today I found my little Bunny Marshmallows again. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to do this activities with my kiddos again... yeah! Grab yourself a few bags for a fun, tasty math review for Easter.

I also found cute colored SOUR jelly beans by Brach. I created an additional Jelly Bean Math Activity to go with last years... if you purchased Jelly Bean in an Egg last year, download it again for the first AND second version.

Dr. Seuss No-No

So I received an email that "Dr.Seuss" is copyrighted...even the words... so we need to change any titles to files that we have created for Dr. Seuss Day.
My mind is mush!
I need a new fun name for my unit and I need your creative mush-less mind :)
Send in your idea of a fun title that I can rename my unit...if it is choosen... you win the file!

Winner! Winner!

I am always amazed at your creativity. I actually had to have my family help me decide.

The winner is Dr. Silly Stations!
I'll be sending the file tonight!
Thanks Again!

Toad-ally In Love Centers

While completing the Toad-ally in Love centers with my kiddos I came across a couple errors and also decided to add a couple more independent activities... if you purchased the centers yourself... download the 3 pages below and add them to your file. It still amazes me after editing and editing and rereading and rereading and checking one last time... there are still mistakes... augh!... anyone interested in editing for my numbskull brain in return for free activities? Two heads have got to be better than my one crazy one! Thanks for your patience!!

President's Day and Organization

A few weeks ago I was asked by a couple fellow bloggers how I store my centers when I'm not using them. It's not fancy but, it has worked well and it's not expensive. Labeled gift boxes ;) (I love gifts;) This is my newest unit on President's Day so I thought I share it with you and answer the question in one post. Each box has a label on the outside. Inside I keep all my centers (stored individually in a large baggy), blacklines and books I like to use with the theme of the center. It's nice to know that everything is ready to go on a moments notice and the blacklines are with everything for simplicity.

I'd love to hear how you organize and store your centers!!

6 more weeks....

I know that I shouldn't complain, however, I was really disappointed in Phil's results today ;)

We graphed our predictions yesterday and we were SURE that spring would be arriving rather quickly... after this morning we decided we needed to book a field trip to Hawaii. Think the parents will go for it ;)
