This week we are featuring our newest creation, Dippin’ Differences! This is a great summer-themed way for your students to practice their basic subtraction facts from 0 to 10! It is a fun, one-time prep subtraction center for your classroom. 

This activity pack includes 66 pages of ice cream scoops and ice cream cones to create math facts. We split the facts up into several different bags (centers) so the children aren't overwhelmed by the number of pieces. We first have them lay all the cones out so they can see the differences that they will need to build equations for. Next, they will look at all of the scoops and start working. We encourage our children to use manipulatives of their choice if they are needed. We are always impressed by their ability to work through the equations, even without manipulatives. 


Children can use these materials as a whole group, in small groups, or at a cooperative or independent math center. We have also included 3 different recording sheets, an individual assessment, and ideas for differentiation.

We hope you enjoy this new ice cream themed center! It is a great way to help your children learn their subtraction facts!
Have a wonderful week!

Included are picture cards for each letter of the alphabet, it ends up equaling over 400 words! We have also included cards for four digraphs as well. Each card has a colorful illustration and written word to match. These cards can be used to help your students to work on so many skills. We use them during our letter of the week activities and they help to develop drawing, writing, vocabulary, understanding of beginning sounds, decoding, etc. We have included a variety of words and pictures in this huge pack! Among them are sports, numbers, household items, colors, vehicles, and  much more.
A few examples are pictured below:

We like to use these cards in our classrooms to complete an alphabet book to go along with the letter we are learning about for the week. You can find these Awesome Alphabet Books in our store here. The children love completing them every week!



It is super easy to use them with "letter of the week" programs and in classroom centers when storing them alphabetically. We have found multiple containers that fit the cards easily, plus the Oxford alphabet dividers come in handy too!



Have a great week!! Thanks for stopping by!

Bingo! Bingo! Everybody loves to play bingo! Fun in the Sun is no exception! We have included 30 calling cards and 28 player boards. Just like any game of bingo you can decide how to play: five across, five down, five diagonal, four corners, etc. 

Here is an example of the calling cards:
We like to change up the "calling" by sometimes giving the children the description to see if they know the vocabulary being used, and sometimes we only show the picture without telling what it is to practice visual discrimination.

Here is an example of one of the many different player boards:

Fun in the Sun Summer Bingo is great for school, day camp, scouts, daycare, and so much more!
We hope you have a lot of fun playing Fun in the Sun bingo!! Thanks for visiting us again this week.

"Banana Split Vowels" is a fun literacy center to help children practice isolating and identifying medial vowels in CVC words, in addition to learning how to segment and blend sounds in CVC words. This fun ice cream-themed center is a great phonemic awareness and phonics activity for your students as summertime is approaching! This product includes 16 banana splits with CVC words, a recording sheet, and a self-check resource also.

First, students can lay out the banana split dishes with the initial and final consonants already completed. They should identify the picture on the dish (making sure the word for it matches the beginning and ending sounds), and then segment the word to isolate the medial vowel. They can then choose a vowel ice cream scoop to complete each word!





Students can record their answers on the included recording sheet. We have included both a color and black and white version for you to choose from.

Finally, students can use the self-check resource to see if they spelled each word correctly. If they had mistakes, this is the perfect time to talk about the short vowel sounds and identify which children need additional practice with medial vowels in CVC words.


We hope your children enjoy this fun literacy center as much as ours do!! Who doesn't love ice cream right?
Have a great week!
