Ocean Themed Centers & Freebie

I had so much fun creating the Ocean Theme Pack. I finished it up just Tuesday and I have already printed, laminated and cut out ready to use:)  Yes, you can say I am a bit compulsive:)  Since I don't have time to type much because I have to get to the rest of the work I have neglected over the past few days, I will just post pictures of the packs as well as a FREEBIE for Freebie Friday and Manic Monday.  Don't forget to check out all of the great freebies and link up:)  So worth it!!!

Literacy Pack-Common Core Aligned- So much cool and differentiated stuff!! Click on the picture to check it out:)

Math Pack-Common Core Aligned- 5 differentiated centers (many with multiple activities in each center) and then 8 activity sheets. Click on the picture to check it out:)

Click on the picture and download the PREVIEW for a freebie activity sheet with QR codes:)

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and for my fellow MN/Midwestern friends, get out and enjoy the temperatures:)  So excited!!!

Fellow Blogger Giveaway :)

Well Hello Friends~
A fellow MN blogger is doing a really cool giveway. I almost want to call her my 'bloggy' friend as we have found that are both from MN and SOOOOOO sick of this weather (7 months of a snowy winter that just will not quit)... I wanted to give a shout out to the awesome giveaway that she is hosting:) I can only hope that I am a winner and I bet you will too:)  Good Luck!!!

Freebie Friday and unit giveaway:)

Well oh my goodness. My last two blog posts were about hoping spring would arrive... AND.... nope, still nowhere to be found... We are home today on another snow day (our 4th this year) We were supposed to be done on Thursday May 23rd because our building is being demolished so we can move into our brand new building next year... Now we have to go back after Memorial Day on Tuesday and most likely Wednesday.

So it is going to be a short blog post today as I am hoping to get a MAJOR spring cleaning done today, if the kiddos will cooperate:) However, in addition to the Freebie, I am going to giveaway 2 of my Spring Insect Units:)  All you need to do is follow my TPT store, my blog and leave a comment below.  I will pick 2 winners on Monday evening randomly.  You can pick either the Math Unit or Literacy Unit:)  Check them out by clicking on them below. The previews show A LOT :)

For my Freebie, I am including a Differentiated Coin Value Game. My kiddos love it and it is great for those kiddos that are working on recognizing coins and their values and for those that can add a few coins together.  Students spin the spinner and try to find that amount on the picture. There is also a black and white version to save on ink:)
 If you like it, please preview my other coin value games that are similar concepts but set up a bit differently:)  Hope your kiddos love it as much as mine do!
Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of it here at home with me to upload.  My jump drive (aka my life) is at school and since we are  home with a snow day, I cannot access it. However if you click HERE it will bring you right to it:)  I promise it is worth it:)  If you do want a quick peek at it, if you look at the Math Center icon just above on the math and literacy center icons, you can see it. It is the center direction above the Title "Math" with the spinners and flies with coins in circles.
Don't forget to check out all of the other AMAZING freebies on Freebie Friday and Manic Monday!  You won't be disappointed!

Don't forget to comment so you earn the chance to win an entire Math or Literacy Unit:)

Is Spring EVER going to come???

Read to the bottom for the FREEBIE and Buy 2 get 1 free Details:) 

Just when we all thought spring was here and we were done with winter there is a HUGE storm on the forecast. Great... We just got back from Florida and I love me some flip flops so I told myself I could put the winter closed toed shoes away.... Well I may be trudging through the snow in flip flops tomorrow because I just cannot go back:(  My hubby took the plow off the 4wheeler... It is middle of April right???  Just checking:)

I have total spring fever and had so much fun creating my spring unit (click here) that I wanted to create more happy, colorful, bright things to do with my kiddos. So I created an Insect/Bug unit and I am soooo excited to use it:)  I have uploaded the entire unit to TPT, as well as it divided into a math and a literacy unit.  I have not yet uploaded individual centers from the unit, but will do so soon!  So you have to check it out.  It is super cute and I am loving it:) 

From Friday at 8am until Tuesday 8 am, I am holding a buy 2 get 1 free sale for any of my products (freebie must be of less or equal value to least expensive purchase).  All you need to do is email me at your TPT username and which item you would like for free, and I will get it to you asap:)  I am super excited!!!  Click here to go to my TPT store:) 

I am also linking up with Teaching Blog Addict and Classroom Freebies for their amazing Freebie Day products.  I have missed the last 2 weeks being out on vacation so I am excited to post again:) In addition, for the first time ever, Lucky to be in 1st is hosting a Freebies on the 15th Linky Party so I am joining:)  Can't wait to get some amazing freebies!!!
