I Spy Contraction Fun!

My students get so excited when they see I have the magnifying glasses out and have been asking for a new center.  I have a group of firsties that are ready for some independent work with contractions so created a new I Spy to keep them working and engaged.

You can find I Spy Contractions HERE.
When I was trying to decide on a clip art theme I stumbled upon these cutest s'mores by Creative Clips and just had to use them!

This learning pack includes 4 pictures (in color and black and white) each containing teeny tiny contractions that students need to read and record with a magnifying glass.  I have included 3 different recording pages to help with differentiating your student's needs.  Each option comes with an 'I can' student instruction page to keep your students on task.

I have added this unit to my I Spy Bundle so if you already own it you can re-download and get this for free.  The bundle now includes 19 learning packs which you get for 50% off in the bundle.

As always, I'll send my newest pack I Spy Contractions to the first 3 people who comment on this post :)

I hope you are having a chance to enjoy the Easter weekend with family and friends!!

It's been awhile :)

Hi all!
It seems like it's been awhile since I've written a post. My blog is unfortunately one of the things that gets pushed aside when life gets busy.  But, family first and with two teenagers need I say more????
I've updated an activity I use in my classroom and realized it's posted as a freebie in my store so have posted the update there. It's not listed as a new product so it won't come up in your feed but here's a peek...
This is a dice doubles plus one game played with a partner.  Students roll one dice, double the number, add one and color the sum.  The first to cover all their numbers wins.  I've included an 'I can' card to build student independence and all pages are in both color and black and white.  You can download this freebie HERE at my TPT store.

I've had a chance to upload a new Easter Mystery Picture.  I've had a 1-100 one in my store (which got a little update) and earlier this week added one for a 120 chart.

If you own my Mystery Picture Bundle, you're in luck because you can head over to your purchases and download these for free :)

I'd live to give a few copies of my Easter mystery pictures away.  The first 3 people who comment on this post will receive a copy of each to help you with your Easter week planning.  :)
Happy Saturday!!!!!!!!

Add or Subtract?

Hi friends,
I've had a number of requests to create another addition or subtraction worksheet.  Sorry it's taken so long, but here you go!
Students must look at each number sentence and decide it an addition or subtraction sign is needed.  If you are putting it in a math station or setting it out for early finishers I have included an "I can" student instruction card.  Of course, it could also be used whole class.

You can download this freebie HERE from Google Docs.
Enjoy and Happy Monday!!!!!!!!!!!

Greater Than, Less Than, Equal To

I am super, duper excited about my newest learning pack.  I've been working on it for awhile and although it started out small it just kept growing :)

You find everything you need to create an anchor chart to use as a teaching tool and hang in your classroom for reference.  Accents are in both color and b&w.

Use the following activity in a small group to have students compare numbers and decide if they are less than or greater than 50.  A recording page is included to check for understanding.

I've included comparing mats which can be easily differentiated.

There's also a true or false activity requiring the students to sort number statements.

I've added an assortment of print and go activities including a flip book.

and finally ... a few teaching tools including printable greater than, less than, and equal symbols.  in addition there are number cards 0-100.
You can find this learning pack HERE at my TPT store.

Phew... thanks for reading through to the bottom of this post!

As always, I love to share so the first two people who leave a comment will receive a copy. ;)

Valentine's Day Mirror Words

Here in the east we're all digging out from under the snow and getting ready for another dumping.  I am soooo envious right now of those of you who live where it's warm and sunny.  I'm longing for my flip flop days!!!

However, snowy days give me time to finish up some products I have been working on.  I just posted my Mirror Words activity for February.

My students love seeing the mirrors at a literacy station as much as the magnifying glasses.

Students use a mirror to read backward words and record them on a choice of two recording sheets.  This will allow you to differentiate for your students.  An "I can" student instruction card is included for each recording choice.  You can find this engaging learning pack HERE.

If you own my Mirror Words Bundle I have added it to the pack so you can re-download for free :)

As always, I'll send a copy of my Valentine Mirror Words to the first 3 people who comment on this post.  Don't forget your email!
