Happy New Year's and Currently

And now it's time for...
I was excited to see the January Currently up; however, it was just another reminder that winter break is almost over and I go back to school on January 3rd. This is seriously going to be a rude awakening for me (especially at 5:15 a.m.).

Winter is Snow Much Fun Packet Giveaway!

The house is quiet, the guests have gone home, and I've managed to get things straightened up and cleaned. I always enjoy family over the holidays, but I find the peace and quiet after everyone goes home equally enjoyable.

I found time this past week to put the finishing touches on my Winter is Snow Much Fun Math and Literacy Packet. You can see a preview below. The first person to comment and guess which book is my favorite read aloud during winter will win the packet. Click on any picture to see this packet in my TPT store.

Enjoy the rest of your break!

Update!: Heather correctly guess my favorite winter read aloud: Snowmen At Night! Way to go, Heather, a packet is on its way to you!

Welcome Winter Sale and Blog Hop

Winter break is finally here! I'm looking forward to reading in my cozy chair with my iced coffee every morning (I's cold out there, but I'm still drinking the iced coffee). It will be wonderful to use the bathroom whenever I feel like it and to be able to take all the time I want to actually enjoy what I'm eating at lunch. Thankfully, I'm done with the Christmas shopping. Now I just have to motivate myself to get everything wrapped and under the tree.

I'm linking up with Casey from Second Grade Math Maniac for a TPT sale to welcome winter. Enjoy 20% off at my TPT all weekend. Click on the picture to visit my store.

December Currently

 It's December???? Already???? Thankfully I get a lot of my shopping done here and there early in the year. I have yet to put up a single decoration and I have no idea when I'm going to get around to do that. This is the first time I've participated in Farley's linky. This is really fun and gave me an opportunity to see (and follow) several new blogs that I haven't seen before. Click here to go to her blog and see for yourself!

Smart App For Kids

In these times of tight budgets, I don't want to be spending a great deal of my own money to find good educational apps for my classroom iPad. Thanksfully, I found this great website. 99% of the apps I have on the iPad for my classroom I have found through Smart Apps For Kids. They do a great job of researching and reviewing apps so I have a pretty good idea of what I am getting and know that the apps will be of educational value. There is a Free App of The Day...every day! I have also found some other great apps for discounted prices. To visit this valuable website, click on the picture above.

0 - 120 Classroom Number Line to go with Common Core

After searching for a 0-120 number line to match the Common Core Standards and not finding what I needed, I decided to create my own.
The number line includes both a manuscript and print font. Also included are a left and right hand. All even numbers are blue and all odd numbers are red. The number words are included below each number. Tens are highlighted in yellow.
This 0-120 number line is meant to be printed on cardstock, cut out and assembled. The final measurement of the number line is approximately 26 ft 11 in.

How Much Does That Word Cost? Word Work and Spelling Activity

Here is a great way to get your students to practice spelling words throughout the year. Students use these cards to figure out how much their spelling words are worth. To meet the needs of different learners, there are four different levels: 1. nickels and pennies; 2. dimes and pennies; 3. nickels, dimes and pennies; 4. quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies. I have also included recording sheets if you do not wish to have students write the words and in a journal. The recording sheets are for 12 words, 10 words, 8 words or 5 words.

For using this activity at a center, print out the money task card, laminate it and put it into a ziplock bag with coins for students to manipulate.
