I needed a little something NEW to jazz up my math stations for the month of November. So I made a little packet. It turned out kind-of cute.
Isn't that the cutest dang TURKEY? That is from Barbara Leyne's new autumn design packet. And I was lucky enough to win a copy. You can check out her cute blog HERE.
And be sure to follow her TpT shop. She has darling creations all the time.
Anywho, back to my packet.
Hot out of the laminator. I just got it all printed, laminated, cut, and bagged. It took just about an hour. But now I have 8 new activities for my little firsties to do the rest of the month in math stations.
Here is a peek at what it contains.
It's perfect for my kiddos. This will be great for Even & Odd and Tallies. The numbers only go to 25 so it won't be too hard. There are a lot of subtraction games which my kids need lots of practice on. It also reinforces ten frames and comparing numbers. I can hardly wait to dive in on Monday.
You can check it out at my shops.
If you head over to TpT, this packet is on sale for the weekend!
I also finished reading one of the best books I've read in a looong time. 'Crash Course' by Kim Bearden is very inspiring. It's not just for teachers. A lot of blogger recommended it this past summer when it was released. So I thought I'd give it a read. Boy am I glad I did. I loved the format with 'Class Notes' and 'Homework'. It will make you want to be a better teacher as well as a better human being. I'd sure LOVE to visit the RCA and see Kim in action.
Well, thanks for stopping by. I'll try not to be a stranger and post more often.
I just jumped on to check my emails and catch up on all my friends on bloglovin' when I read about the passing of Yolanda Arnold from Oceans of First Grade Fun. I'm in a state of shock.
Hers was the first blog I read. She inspired me to start blogging. She was such a creative and talented teacher. She has always been so generous and willing to share her ideas. She did a guest blogger post for me a few summers back and was so fun to work with. Yolanda has touched a countless number of students and colleagues with her amazing inspiration and talents. She will be greatly missed.
