Five for Friday {Linky Party..March 29th}



It’s Friday.. GOOD Friday!

Here are five random things from this week. Post your “Five for Friday” and link up below.


1. Yesterday we celebrated with a fun day of games, egg hunt and good food! We had a blast at our Easter party!



2. It is always a GOOD Friday when your day gets to start with this.

Not so much when this follows.. a trip to Walmart! But, let me tell you. If you go to Walmart at 7:45 in the morning.. it’s pretty quiet.



3. It is hard to believe but another month is over.. I gave out special Easter treats for my kids who completed their March Reading Goals yesterday.

4. I am having a little egg-cellent sale! Click the picture below to go egg hunting in my store and find five of my favorite products on sale for 20% off.


5. Two fun teacher friends are having giveaways and I have a product in each. Click the pictures below to jump over to their blogs to enter.

Happy GOOD Friday!


God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.

Spring Math Centers



I have a new set of Spring Math Centers in my store.

Here is a look at what is included:


Number Order OR picking the least & greatest number.


This center can be used 2 ways. Students can put the numbers on each card in numerical order or they can pick the least & greatest number from each card. Recording sheets are included for both ways. There are 16 cards and 2 recording sheets. Numbers range from 1-120.


Money Find & Count:

Students look at the “coin page” and record how many of each coin and the value. Additional questions to answer about the coins are included on the recording sheet.


Two Digit Addition: This center includes 12 cards and a recording sheet.


Students write the math facts and the answer for each card. No regrouping!


Counting by 5’s.


Numbers range from 5-200. Two recording sheets are included. The first one is for numbers up to 100. The second one is for numbers up to 200.


The cards fit perfect in a pocket chart.

Greater Than / Less Than: Students look at each card and decide which sign goes between the numbers (< or >).


This center includes 20 cards and a recording sheet.



Math Facts: These are “big math facts” that include addition and subtraction mixed together in a single fact. (For example: 4+5-2-1= _). Eight cards and a recording sheet are included.


Here is the link if you are interested..

Five For Friday {Linky Party.. March 15th}


Today is Friday.. join me in posting 5 random things from your week or today. Add your blog link below. Last week 151 of you joined in on the party. Can you beat that this week?

Here are my “Five for Friday”..


1. I am wrapping up my Spring Break vacation.. and let me tell you it has been a GREAT week! I have enjoyed and taken advantage of having a week off from school. I have worked all day/every day catching up on things that I have been putting off or just needed to do. This little girl has enjoyed me being at home all week too. She has been right beside me all week. This is sweet Peanut..


2. New Folders… Our school breaks down the year into four 9-week periods. Each new nine weeks I give my students new take-home folders. I cannot believe we start the last 9 weeks on Monday. Where has the year gone?? This has been the fastest {but hardest} year ever!


3. I stopped by the school on Wednesday to do a few things. I grabbed our directed drawings from the hall bulletin board and brought them home. I made them into books to put on our book table. My kids will love looking at their Lincoln and Washington drawings.



4. I really had good intentions on making a President’s day post and sharing some of the things we did.. but I never got around to it. But, I wanted to jump in and share this freebie with you. I made and upload this counting by 3’s activity to my TpT store.. It has the cards and a recording sheet if you are interested.

American Counting by 3’s Activity {free download}


5. While I was at the school Wednesday morning- I put away the America and St. Patrick’s Day books and pulled out my Easter collection. I really don’t like Easter being in March. I all ready feel like I am squeezing it in…


You can see some of the things we will do for Easter in this post and there are some freebies too if you want to jump over and check it out.

Enjoy your weekend! Link up below!
