Surfin Chick...and a freebie!

I just had to get this book at our Scholastic Book Fair last week.  And then thanks to Nikki at Melonheadz I was inspired to create this "cool cat".  Maybe next year I will create a "cool surfin chick".  The kiddos loved the story and their crafts came out so cute. Our door to the classroom welcomes everyone with the same theme.  You too can make this craft as it is a "freebie"!!  Enjoy...Michele

Let's Monkey Around...a Freebie!

I just love the Five Little Monkeys and I can't wait to see the crafts hanging in my room.
This packet I created contains six of my favorite monkey stories.  Each one is accompanied by word work, writing, and comprehension.  It also has vocabulary for posting, monkeys for craft sticks, and an adorable craft.  
The freebie contains a word search and an opportunity for your kiddos to create their own monkey adventure for a new book.  I be Eileen Christelow gets lots of them.

Free, Free, Free!!!

I have been so busy and have lots of "freebies" for you.  My focus has been mathematics because I wanted to develop games my kiddos can take home or use with a partner at school.  Each one focuses on strategy building and math facts.  I am determined we will succeed with learning our facts.  As silly as it sounds as I was creating all these packets I was inspired by Nikki at Melonheadz with a little craft to bring on warm weather "vibes".  I hope you all will enjoy these.
AND I got a note from Terry at "First at Bat" that she recommended me for a Blog Award.  I am thrilled.  To be honest I didn't think anyone even checks out my blog so.....Thank you Terry!!  Terry actually follows me on Facebook which is easy to do cause I bet you are all Facebook Fans.
First at Bat
Okay so here we go!  These are the two packets I created.  One is on place value and the other is dedicated to math fact game boards.  You can find them by just peeking over to the side of my blog.

The first freebie is a packet with a Spin/Spin Again/Win!!
One for addition and one for subtraction with "holiday" themes.

The next freebie is just way too cute.  Love this cat and can't wait to see him decorating my room!!
To end my Michigan State Spartans were winners today!

Looking Ahead!

With another "snow day" called I spent the day preparing for the upcoming month.  All the Spring items got me sooooo excited for sunshine and green grass instead of clouds and white snow.  This little goodie has two crafts I can't wait for the kiddos to complete and decorate my room with.  I am including a freebie for you down below.  Click here for the freebie.  Tomorrow I will be back with ...If You Give A Cat A Cupcake.

Spring Ahead!

It was not easy adjusting to the new time change but if there will be more light when I wake up I am all for it.  In honor of Spring Ahead I have a little freebie for you that I think you will enjoy.
Next week we are going to be completing a unit on Laura Numeroff stories.  This is one of my favorites and I can't wait to spend the week discovering what happens when you "give a _____ a _____"!
Enjoy your week everyone!!
