Report cards and treats for you!

So maybe I have not been the greatest of bloggers lately, but I have great reason why not,



I've been working on my teacherpayteachers store.
Leader Board Superb

I've removed a few horrible older products, added a few awesome new ones, remade some poorly made old ones, and made a new Forever Freebie for the 100th day of School (which I'll celebrate February 13th). I've asked my Facebook fan page when everyone celebrates THEIR 100th day, and I'd love if you'd weigh in!

Here's a run down of these awesome goodies for you:

100th Day Forever Freebie:
100th day of school Student made posters
Your students will get to make some awesome cute huge posters as they practice counting to 100 and get to see how big 100 is.

Remade products:
Scissors Practice:

Superhero writing paper:

Students get to write on a variety of colour or print friendly papers for journal time or other writing activities.

Raise your hand to 100: Count by 5's activity:
These posters have all the multiples of five on the hands, which I use as posters, but could be made for sorting cards, etc as well. Two sizes.

New Products:

We're finishing up our addition and subtraction unit this week, and one of the projects we made as part of this, were these reminder posters for doubles addition.

1+1 is eyes
2+2 is butterfly wings
3+3 is ant legs
4+4 is an octopus
5+5 are hands

How do you help your kids visualize doubles facts?

New Years Bulletin Boards around the school 2015

Two days ago I shared with you the New Years craft my class did for back to school, and the Bulletin board I created from their work. 

Today I want to share with you the collection of boards the rest of the school has put up.

Check out all the awesomeness below:

Ringing in the New Year! 2015

Every year I try to do something a little different for my new years bulletin board. Last year we made toast.

This year we rang it in with Old fashioned phones!
I was inspired entirely by A Cupcake for the Teacher, so if you like this idea, go buy her product, it's better than mine.

Pick 5! Sight Word Sampler

Yesterday I posted about preparing a new product for TPT.

I have new years resolutions to post at least one new product every month this year, and this will be the first once it's done.

To tempt you I'm posting a sampler of the first three pages which feature pre-primer Dolch words.

Check out this picture of the product in action:

Tempted? Check the sample out on TPT, and in a few days, I'll be posting the final product and hosting a contest to win a copy.

New Dolch Sight Word Product: Pick 5!

I'm in the Midst of creating a new Dolch Sight Word Product to use as a Bell work activity in my class starting this Monday.

My class has many struggling emergent readers, so I need to step up my sight word practice this month. I'm starting over with five words a week from the pre-primer list, with a different activity to do each of the five days using the same five words.

This will eventually be five full products and a Mega Bundle featuring all Dolch words in each activity.

I've shown some of my original sheets I made for my class previously, but I've changed it up for my new year new chances philosophy.

Here is a pic from my computer of the first page for Monday morning:

Originally the page said Colour, but I've changed it up to be called Pick 5!
There are two reasons for this:
1. Students get to pick ANY five colours to colour their five words.
2. I Don't have to make two copies of every page using Colour/Color.

What do you think?
Watch my Facebook page for a free sample before we go back to school on Monday, and then check back by the end of the week (hopefully), for when I offer up the whole Pick 5! package. I'll probably run some sort of contest for someone to grab a free copy. :)
