Bubble Graph Sight Words, Domino Addition and some FREEBIES!

 Look, our two newest products also have some freebies attached! If you are looking for a new way to spice up Word Work, Rick just created something for you and your kiddos!  The kinders love this activity! They are working on Math and Literacy skills at the same time! This is great sight word practice along with counting and graphing.  Check it out in our TPT store (FREEBIE is in the preview)  or click here.
They are so proud of their work! :)


Another Math activity is a Domino Addition game on the SMARTboard.  You do not need a SMARTboard though if you want to do this activity.  Click on the preview and use the FREE worksheet to have your students adding away.  Some of my kinders need the use of manipulatives to help with adding and subtracting.  This activity is perfect for them and they are having fun at the same time! Use the SMARTboard first to teach your whole class and then send them out to work independently or use the SMARTboard for a math small group activity.  You can check out this product right here.

Happy New Year 2014!

This kids had a blast today making New Year hats.  I drew a black outline on 11 x 17 paper.  Next, I ran the black line copy and a blank sheet through the copier and double stapled on the left.  I added another staple on the right to hold the pages together while the students colored and used dot painters to complete the project.  To fit them to the student, another 2 staples were added to tighten the hat on the students.  Most fun today came when we used paper shredding to throw in the air and YELL... HAPPY NEW YEAR! - Mr. E

Currently ...


Currently hooking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade to let you know what is currently happening over in my world.
First, I am listening to silence with  4 children (3 at home now) that is a rarity but I think everyone is pooped out from all the holiday fun! So we are all enjoying a little peace and quiet.
I have  loved this time off from work.  Even though I love my job, it is an exhausting profession where you don't have much time to relax.  So I am very thankful for these two weeks.
Where I live we have just been overloaded with snow.  It is so beautiful - especially since I have not had to drive ..but I am wanting to go for a nice walk in it.
For the last week and a half we have been eating a lot of yummy food and I need to exercise it off! Ha!
Finally, a tradition that we started about 7 years ago, is to write down the top 10 meaningful events every year for our family.  My husband and I  just went through the years reading how time as gone by so fast but at the same time feeling very blessed! Gloria

New Years coloring page

Hi Everyone! Is anyone starting to think about school yet?  Well, the kinders will be coming back all excited.  Our first couple of days will be adjusting back to our hectic schedule. Rick made a coloring sheet you can give out or have your kiddos do... maybe put some quiet music on ... they can relax and
color before we get back to our busy days.  The link is below and enjoy the rest of your break! :)
