Educents First & Second Grade Bundle

It's that time of year...back to school.

 I have teamed up with Educents with some instant downloads to help get your school year off to a great start! It's loaded with great activities like interactive notebooks, literacy, math, science and activities that stretch throughout the year!  

Here are the products I have in this great bundle.

The activities in this packet are designed to help students master adding 10 or subtracting 10 with numbers 0-20. Included in this pack are:
1. 32 Number Cards – Cards show numbers 1-20 in a variety of ways (tallies, numerals, dice, place value blocks, dominoes, ten frames and number lines). These cards can be used as task cards, cards for a class game of scoot, or a small group game such as Monster Mash. I like to print these on colored card stock and laminate for durability.
2. Monster Mash Game – Small group game to practice skill
3. Number lines 1-20 to use as a math tool
4. 8 ½ x11 120 poster
5. Small 120 charts to be used as a math tool
6. Task Card recording sheet
7. Scoot Game recording sheet
8. Two different reproducible pages to use as an independent math activity or assessment for adding 10 and subtracting 10 with numbers to 20.
This is a simple and fun writing center or work on writing activity! Simply copy on card stock, laminate and you're done with very little prep involved. This set of month-by-month roll and write mats includes a mat of 6 story starters for each month of the year. Students love it because they can use the mat over and over to write different stories. These can be used as independent practice for writing narratives, expository and opinion pieces as well.

For a limited time you can get these and a whole lot more for $24.99 from Educents which is about 78% off all these great products!  24 products for  literacy, math, and science - resources that will stretch you long into your year.  And over 1200 pages of materials ready for you to use - I know you'll find lots of things that can help you this school year! Just click on the picture below to go and check it out!

Back to School Best Seller Linky and a Sale!

I'm not sure where July went. I didn't blog a bit in July. Instead, I spent some much needed time with my family. This year has been a bit stressful for my family,  and I guess I just needed to slow down and reconnect.

August is here and that means Back to School is just around the corner...that means it's time to get back in the swing of things. That being said, I'm usually in back-to-school mode come August and start thinking about resources I'll need to get my year going. Some of you are probably already back or are thinking about your new school year. I'm linking up with the Best Seller Linky to show off some of my best selling items that help me get ready for the year. As a bonus, I've found some other awesome products that will help me (just click on the Best Sellers Linky picture to go find some great products to help you get your year started).

Here are a couple of my best sellers. Just click on each picture to check them out.

I'm sure you also know by now that the HUGE TpT Back to School Sale is just around the corner! My store will be 20% off and TpT will offer an additional 10% (for a total of 28%). Be sure to use the code BTS14 at checkout! I don't know about you, but today my goal is to get my cart filled with some things I've been wanting to get for awhile.  Click on the picture to head to my TPT store.

July Currently and Worksheet Wednesday

I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the July it REALLY July already? Makes me sad that summer is already going by so fast.

I just returned from a very relaxing camping trip with my family. We had a great campsite by a river and enjoyed spending time, relaxing and hiking with the kids and grandkids. I was not ready to come home! 

I'm enjoying having some time to finally tackle some much needed projects around the house  like cleaning in the world did I accumulate so much stuff? It's also nice to have time to putter in the yard and read. It's been awhile since I've read anything just for fun. I decided no professional books until August. July is all about home, family and relaxing.

It's also Worksheet Wednesday! Here's a short little ABC order activity for back to school. Just click on the picture to snag it and then head over to the Teaching Tribune to grab some other great worksheets.

Don't forget to head over to my post about winning one of ten $100 TPT shopping sprees. Just click on the picture to enter!

Two For Tuesday and Christmas in July Sale!
I'm linking up with the Teaching Tribune for 'Two for Tuesday'! You'll find some fabulous products for 50%. What a great way to stock up on a few things for the beginning of the year at a great price. 
I'm featuring two popular products in my store. First up is my 0-120 Number Line. I made this awhile back when I just couldn't find a number line that matched the Common Core Standards. This comes in both D'Nealian or Print Fonts. The last feeback for this product said, "Best # line! Looked everywhere and couldn't find anything already made, this was worth the work to put together." Click on the picture to take a look and grab this for a great price.

My Addition Fact Fluency with Double-It Tic-Tac-Toe Games is also 50% off today. This set of 6 different Double-It Tic-Tac-Toe Games will help your students meet the common core math standard of demonstrating fluency for addition within 20 using mental strategies and knowing from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers. The packet contains 6 different double-it tic-tac-toe games for doubles, doubles plus 1 and doubles plus 2.
And...because my Christmas cactus seems to be starting to bloom again in June (crazy!), I decided join the 6 Months Til Christmas Sale going on right now. So the rest of my TPT products will be 20% off through the 25th. Click on the picture to head to my TPT store and check everything out!
