I showed you a little sneak peak of this new product WEEKS ago.. and I FINALLY finished it up and listed it on TpT this week. I made these Simple and Sweet Counting Cards and Printables last year and used them but finally turned them into a product I could offer in my store.

It includes counting cards for counting by 1’s, 5’s and 10’s with numbers 1-300.

It also includes simple counting printables. I used these in my math notebooks last year but they could be used for other times like morning work, homework, early finishing activities, etc…

One of the top things on my summer to do list was to makeover my math review sheets. These are some of my most used products. I use these through out the year. I use them for math homework through out the year as well as some time fillers here and there.

The kindergarten set is actually what I use the first week of school as a math review before we jump into our math series and start working on new skills. It is a perfect kindergarten review and eases my little firsties back into school.

I got a fun little school supply package in the mail from Bic this week.  Nothing makes my heart much happier than school supplies. But, I think that is true with most teachers.

BIC® Xtra-Fun #2 Pencil
: BIC Xtra-Fun is the only #2 pencil with two-toned color barrels.  The product features ultra-solid, break resistant lead, and is easy to erase with its latex-free erasers. The BIC Xtra-Fun #2 Pencil is available in an eight-pack with a suggested retail price (SRP) of $2.99 and an 18-pack with a suggested retail price (SRP) of $5.99.

I am really excited about these pencils!! I am a pencil user! And, cannot wait to put these to use! And the bright colors AND they are pre-sharpened are added bonuses!!


BIC® Xtra-Craze™ Mechanical Pencil: The BIC Mechanical Pencil is celebrating its 30th birthday in style with new, fun, custom-designed patterns that are sure to make any student stand out this school year.   Whether taking a test with its strong, #2 lead or simply doodling, this pencil is perfect for any type of writing! The new BIC Xtra-Craze Mechanical Pencil is available in a four-pack with a SRP of $3.29.

I have kinda thinking about a VIP seat in my room and these might be a perfect addition to the special supplies that would be available in my VIP seat. The only thing holding me back is where I have room to put a special seat. I have a teeny tiny room and I might be looking at having a larger class this year. But, if I do you can bet mechanical pencils will be a huge hit for the VIP seat!


BIC® Brite Liner® Erasable Highlighter: The BIC Brite Liner Erasable Highlighter features a highlighter on one end and an erasing ink tip on the other end for fast and easy edits. The florescent yellow ink makes bold, vivid highlights; perfect for the diligent, note-taking student. Available in a three-pack, the BIC Brite Liner Erasable has a SRP of $3.29.

My husband saw these sitting on our kitchen table and even he was suspicious! He loves a highlighter and white out himself!!!


BIC Atlantis® Ultra Comfort Pen: New to the popular BIC Atlantis pen franchise for 2015 is the BIC Atlantis Ultra Comfort Pen, which features BIC’s exclusive ink system for even smoother ink compared to BIC’s classic ink system. Students will find their ideas flowing freely with this pen, which also includes an extra soft silicone grip that conforms to your hand for the ultimate writing experience. Available in gray, pink, aqua and blue barrels in black and blue ink, the BIC Atlantis Ultra Comfort pen comes in a one-pack with a SRP of $3.99.

I cannot wait to put this beauty to the test. I will let you know if I love the way it writes as much as I love the way it looks!

I cannot express how GRATEFUL I am for anyone who bought and donated books for our Book Drive for the Batesville Mississippi Elementary Kindergarten teachers. The books have been coming in daily and our projected target date for delivery is August 1st.  These teachers lost their entire classrooms to a fire back on July 10th. Thank you! Thank you!
