Freebies Friday - May 27th, 2016

Welcome to Freebie Fridays where you'll find a lot of great freebies in various topics! Sellers may link up to THREE freebies from their stores or blog.


My featured freebie, Add or Subtract Bump is one I will be using in tutoring that I just made. Click on it to grab it from Google Drive. I may add it to my store in the future. This is a bump game that uses both adding and subtracting! Students spin a spinner to determine if they will add or subtract! Then they roll two dice and add or subtract them. If subtracting they subtract the smaller number from the larger number.

Animals, Animals, Animals!

Are your students learning about animals as the year winds down? I know many classes finish up Science with animals. It's a perfect time to integrate that with animals whether it is zoo, insects, ocean, jungle, birds, etc. into your literacy and math centers, stations, or rotations as well. Don't forget you can also play a song or two for your students.

One of my favorite animal songs from The Learning Station is "Special Friends", which also has a wonderful theme for friendships!

Check out the linky party below for more great songs featuring animals!

Here is one of my newer products involving animals. This is a set of CVC Zoo Animal games and centers. It includes a CVC Race game, 2 Write The Rooms, and 5 Bump games! Click the pictures to check it out! That's a total of 8 activities for one very low price!

Spring Linky Party

I can't believe that spring will be here on March 20th, the day before my birthday! I'll be 37 years old. I'll be tutoring on my birthday for an amazing child. I found out I went to elementary school with her dad!

Anyway, here are some new spring products that I have created. Click the picture to check them out. You can also check out other spring free and paid products, music, and ideas in the linky party below.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Easter-CVC-Puzzles-2441113

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Easter-CVC-Puzzles-2441113
Cut along the lines of my CVC Easter Eggs to create puzzles for your students. Perfect for an easy word work phonics center. R-Controlled Vowels and Vowel Pairs are also currently available. If you need another skill contact me.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Easter-After-Numbers-to-120-Task-Cards-2438767
Easter After Numbers Race is a fun game that gives the students two numbers and then they must name what number comes next. They roll one die or the fun bunny spinner and move that many spaces. If they land on a snake they go back to start, but if they land on a chick they get to go again. The cards can also be used as task cards.

Clip It Math Spring Kindergarten has addition and subtraction to 10, counting 0 to 20, and after numbers to 20.

My favorite spring video has to be "Spring Is Here" by The Learning Station. Your children will learn all about animals in spring and will also enjoy the wonderful animation and movements for this song. Perfect brain break that ties into Science.


Those who have teaching ideas, products free or paid, and music may link up as many as you want below as long as it has to do with spring.

St. Patrick's Day Linky Party

The next holiday that will be here before we know it is St. Patrick's Day! It is the perfect time to study and learn about Ireland and tie it in with some fun St. Patrick's Day games, centers, and activities.

My newest creation is for St. Patrick's Day focusing on addition facts to 10. There is a fun game board included where the student goes back to start if they land on the leprechaun. You can also just use the cards as flash cards, to play Scoot, Quiz, Quiz Trade or any other cooperative learning game.

Hands On Skip Counting Fun!

I am starting tutoring again this time with a Kindergarten student. I will be helping her mostly with math. One of the skills she has had difficulty with I was told is skip counting, except by 10's. So I made some fun hands-on activities of course to help her learn to skip count (multiples) her 2's and 5's. I believe that breaking them down into smaller chunks is the best way to learn it.



A friend found an idea of making lacing plates to practice skip counting. This will also help with minor motor skills.

I also created some fun farm skip counting puzzles for 2's and 5's. Each one has 10 pieces. If they make the animal correctly, they have the right answer. It is self checking! The student should then say the numbers orally. Click the pictures if you would like the Skip Counting activities to try with your students.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Skip-Counting-Puzzles-2402357


I also strongly believe in chanting them daily during morning meeting or math meeting and using videos or songs with skip counting in them. Videos and songs I can't do tutoring without a computer, but are suggested for those who teach a full class.

One of my favorites is "Skip Count" by The Learning Station. This is a skip counting by 2's song to 30. There are actions for the song that make it even more fun and give children that brain break that they really need! Don has the children marching and jumping as they skip count. FUN!

Happy New Year 2016!

Happy New Year everyone!  I spent the past year tutoring students, making tons of new products (415 are in my TPT store), working for The Learning Station, and spending a lot of time with  my 85 year old Grandparents (watching Detroit Tiger and Orlando Magic games and playing cards with them and their elderly friends).

To celebrate the new year as I have the past two years, I am placing my top 10 products on sale again!  This year the sale will be $1.15 instead of the usual $1.  The reason is TPT charges us sellers a .15 cent transaction if you don't fill your cart with at least $3 worth so I take a hit each time that happens.  These products I am putting on sale typically cost between $2 and $6 so you are getting an amazing deal!  Most of my top 10 are still the same as last year, but the order has changed a little and a different product did jump into the top 10 at number 9! When I wake up on January 2nd, the price will go back to full price.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Halloween-Themed-2nd-Grade-Reading-and-Math-Centers-and-Worksheets-354254

Have you purchased any of these before and used them with your students? If so how did they work out? I'm always looking to improve!  Suggestions for the new year feel free to let me know. Comprehension is pretty much a no go as I find it difficult to write on a specific grade level.
