Winter Addition Fun and a Funny Story!

Looking for a way to rid your kiddos of the winter blues?  How about a fun-filled 63 page pack of addition fun and games.  I created this fun and exciting winter unit and I am pumped to start using it when we get back to school in January!  I hope you enjoy it!!  It's only $3.00 but I'll have it on sale for the next two days!

Have a wonderful New Years Eve!  I am excited to spend some time with some great friends as we ring in the New Year!  We are having a wine and cheese party... can you say YUM?!

And since you made your way through this post, here's  a good chuckle for you!  We were reliving Christmas memories and this one just cracks us up every time!  It's Christmas morning and we are about to open presents with our immediate family.  My sister asks my mom what kind of Nook she got my dadd.  (We were all going to pitch in since that's all he REALLY REALLY wanted!)    My mom then proceeded to laugh and say what do you got the Nook!  This led to some funny glances and  a burst of laugher after an initial freak out!  That's right... neither of them had gotten the Nook.  We had no present for my dad! AHH!  WE whipped up a quick little note on the computer telling him we wanted him to pick out the exact one he wanted! HAHAHA :)  No worries, we came clean to him!   

Have a New Year full of love and LAUGHTER...LAUGHTER is key! ;)

Some Fun Freebies!!

I have a few new freebies that I posted yesterday in my tpt shop!  I am thinking about doing a little updating when I get back in my classroom in January so I made some fun new numbers that I can use for everything and anything for labels!  My students have numbers as well, so I see many uses in their future! haha :)  Here's a little peek!

I also created some winter BUMP boards!  Have you played bump with your class?  Do they LOVE LOVE LOVE it as much as mine? My class is obsessed with bump.  It is not my original idea.  It is originally Shari Sloan's brainwork.  Click here for a website full of some more great math games and ideas from her.  Anyways, if you haven't played bump before- download these free winter playing mats and go to town!  The directions on the tpt page!

I'm almost done with my newest creation.  Hopefully tonight or tomorrow I'll have it uploaded to tpt.  I'm working on a giant pack full of winter addition fact fun!  Doesn't that sound fabulous?!  After that, I'll move onto subtraction.  My little kiddos need lots and lots of repetition and practice with their facts.  Why not make it fun? 

I think I need to do more resting over break! haha ;)  I did rest most of the first week off, but I'm trying to take advantage of the extra time we have!!  Have a happy Sunday everyone!

One last thing- like my new blog design?  I love it!!  Thanks to Alicia at DreamlikeMagic Designs.  She's the best!
