Cyber Monday.... Now a Funday!

Happy December, Happy beginning of the wonderful holiday season.  This year the holidays are so much more enjoyable because of Little Sweet Baby O.  She put the "THANKS" into Thanksgiving.  Family dinner with an 18 pound turkey was fun.... But passing around a 12.5 pound baby was all the more enjoyable.   In between returning to work and soaking up all my free minutes with the little princess I managed to finish this R-Controlled Vowels set!    This resource follows the same layout as my Blends and Digraphs bundles.  

Check them out and let me know what you think. 


My kinders are also becoming familiar with numbers to 10 so I made this cutie game for them to play during math centers and also indoor recess!  I ended up having to print them out on different colored paper, because they were all fighting over the pieces.  I guess it could be worse right? 

My students love these activities and I created holiday ones too.  These sets include modified and differentiated version of counting to 5.  Students count themed items, graph them and then complete additional activities based on their findings.  Check them out!  great for subs, additional fun practice or indoor recess.  

PSST... also don't forget about the HUGE sale starting tomorrow. My entire shop is going to be on sale.  Come by and snag a few things.. don't forget to leave feedback so you can buy MORE!

Famous Mathematicians

Sometimes a little love goes a long way.  My little student Alejandro was having a very rough week.  For a 5 year old boy to have so many issues, sometimes work needs to be put to the side and love needs to step in.  That's exactly what we did. My class paraprofessional found out that Alejandro wanted to be famous when he grows up.  He was "playing" a game on the computer in order to try to get him to open up about what was bothering him.  
Without going into details.... I have the ability to make him famous!   

He is on the blog today.  I told him that if he did some work for me, I would call the computer man and have him put it on the Internet for everyone to see!   

SOOOOO, Alejandro got right to work. He colored, counted and worked like a mad man so he could be famous.  After he worked I praised him like crazy, stickers of all kinds, and then I marched right over to my phone and called the computer man.  The computer man, AKA my former paraprofessional came to my class right away and took his work so that he can become famous.  
On Monday morning, I will show him that his work is now on the Internet!  With the encouragement and excitement, I hope to see Alejandro work more in class with  hopes to become famous. 

LADIES and GENTLEMEN, I am proud to introduce to you Alejandro and his Little Book of 7. 

 Here is some number hunting, writing, and representing. 

        Here Alejandro showed a ten frame, numbers before and      after with tally marks.  Then he showed his number using base  ten cubes and his favorite drawing the number.  He told me he did  hearts, because he loves me for making him famous.   

Here is the activity.  11 interactive booklets 

Also avaliable is the alphabet....
