Math Common Core and a {FREEBIE} or 2!

Boy, it's been a while since I've posted...Yikes.  Well, the countdown to Spring Break can officially begin! We only used one snow day all winter long, so we're getting a couple of days added to our Spring Break, and that NEVER happens.  I'm super excited, and totally looking forward to a little break from my sweeties! As I'm sure they are equally looking forward to a break from me!  LOL Only a four day work week this week, Friday is the first official day off. ☺Then we don't go back until April 10th! APRIL 10TH! ☺☺

There are a couple of new math stations available in my TpT store.  One is a super cute bug themed common core practice activity for 10 more and 10 less. 

The next is a {FREEBIE} for comparing numbers. We recently had mid-year math testing, and lo and behold, many of my firsties forgot how to compare numbers.  WHAT? I know! So I put together a little practice math station to refresh their little memories. ☺

Looks like I'm feelin' the green theme today.  LOL  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  

Oh, I almost forgot! Here's the other FREEBIE! I did this cute Easter Bunny activity with my firsties last year and they turned out so cute.  I'm hoping to get to it this year too.  Click this link to see a picture of the super cute bunnies from last year.  Here's a copy of the writing paper we used.  I just took pictures with my digital camera.  I had the kids hold a basket and turn sideways so their profile would have a tail.  Too cute! Then I printed them on the laser printer at school, had the kids add color to the black and white picture, and then we  glued on little pom-poms for the tail, ears, and whiskers.  Fun and cute!

  1. So cute! We didn't get any snow days this year but they don't add them to our spring break or take them off the end of the year. So jealous! Enjoy!

    1. Oh bummer! Well, this is the first year in...can't remember how many years--that we were scheduled to have a full week off for spring break. In the past it's sometimes only been a long weekend. That stinks! So this year is quite a treat since they added two unused snow days onto spring break, and two onto our Memorial Day weekend. I always love a snow day, you know, after you get the early morning phone call you can go back to sleep. But this nice long spring break might be even better! LOL

  4. Thank you for the Common Core ideas! I am constantly searching for them! I enjoy your blog! I just started my own blog and I am waiting on my blog makeover! It should be done soon! If you have any great advice I'd love to learn from you! If you are interested in integrating technology into your classroom, maybe you could stop by my blog!

    Thank you
