It is the most wonderful time of the year! ***SALES****

Tis the season to go shopping. Did you shop til you dropped this weekend?  I just started my shopping this weekend and found some fabulous deals on some electronics for my boys. I still have some more to do but I feel accomplished as I purchased the major items on my list. Tomorrow, I may start some holiday decorating around my home and then I plan on getting to work early on Monday to begin decorating my classroom. I hope you found some great deals shopping this weekend and saved lots of money.  If you are looking for more ways to save some cash and want some fun, motivating math or literacy ideas to jazz up things this holiday season in your classroom, please check out my stores. This week I am having a sale at Teacher's Notebook and I contributed a few products to add to the bundle deals that are available. You can put together a bundle and get up to 50% off.  On Cyber Monday and Terrific Tuesday, there is an awesome sale going on at Teacher's Pay Teachers. Use the promo code Cyber to get 28% off my entire store.  Please see the links to both my stores on the side of this page.  I hope you can find that special something that can make your life easier and most importantly get your students involved in some active learning.  Happy Shopping! Happy Holidays to all my followers.

Thanksgiving Fun

I am really excited to share a few of my Thanksgiving activities. The students in my class are having fun with these hands on activities. Now that my students have developed number sense, they can show different ways to represent numbers using ten frames, number words, counters and tally marks. At literacy centers, students have  been working hard on reading two letter words. I have a chart hanging in my classroom with all two letter words and we practice reading them everyday. We look for two letter words in the text we read. Students are amazed by how often they show up in sentences. I let the students know that if they can read two letter words, it will help them read three letter words and larger words. The two letter turkeys have become a big hit in our class. Check out my new products on Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook. These activities are all kid approved and have helpful recording sheets for you to track their understanding of these concepts. Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful new followers. Thanks for visiting my blog.
