Christmas in July!

We are linking up with our wonderful friends Karen and Kelly from Kennedy's Korner to bring you a fabulous freebie you can use in your classroom! Make sure you grab it fast though, it is only free until July 27th! Don't forget to visit Kennedy's Korner to check out the rest of the awesome surprises!

Our Wonderful Weather Bulletin Board Set will be a great addition to your morning meeting or calendar routine. There are so many skills wrapped into checking the weather daily.

We have a weather helper that reports the weather to the class every day. We encourage compete sentences. For example: "The weather today is sunny." They will then complete the following sentence by using the sentence chart and weather words.


The child will then add a tally mark to the tally chart to keep track of our daily weather.

The weather helper then will color in the corresponding bar on the bar graph to display the data. 
We have included a horizontal and vertical daily weather graph allowing you to chose the style that meets your needs. Included is a standard page sized graph as well as poster sized. We have also added an additional graph that has partly cloudy as one of its choices.

We hope you enjoy our freebie! You can click the cover page up above or click here to grab this product from our store. Thanks for visiting!!

Our favorite old lady is at it again and this time she is swallowing school supplies! This is a great book to read on your first week back at school with your students. They will have a great time making their own old lady and then feeding her the different objects to retell the story. We have included a colored version of the old lady and story pieces for teacher modeling, as well as a black and white version for students to create their own.

We have also included three journal responses to go along with the book. Children can respond to the story by answering the following questions: What was your favorite part of the story and why? What might the old lady swallow next and why? Why do you think the old lady swallowed some books?

Included in this pack are also two math activities. The first is matching a numeral to a set. Children will count the number of objects that are pictured and match them to the correct numeral. We used clip art to represent the story pieces to tie reading and math together.

In the second math activity, children will practice counting a set of objects and then writing the matching numeral. Writing numerals can be difficult for our young children, especially those that are starting school for the first time!

We hope your children enjoy coming back to school and feeding this little lady too! She is sure to be a hit in your classroom! Have a great week!

We are so excited to feature one of our newest products, Monster Mania! Last year we discovered the book Monsters Love School by Mike Austin. We quickly fell in love with it as did our children. 

In this pack we included two literacy and two math activities. 

First is a set of alphabet cards. We have included both upper case and lower case. 

You can do so many things with these cards, the possibilities are endless. You can can play memory, a partner match, scavenger hunt for objects that begin with the first sound, etc.

Next, we have included sentences for children to practice their reading, tracking print, etc. Children will read the sentence starter and then chose one of the words that have been provided to complete the sentence. They will then re-read the sentence to make sure it makes sense. 


This pack also includes Monster Ten Frames. The children can work with a partner to fill in their ten frame. One child can fill in the ten frame and the other child can find the numeral that matches the set of counters. You could use these for addition, subtraction, etc. Again, the possibilities are endless.



Lastly, we have included a monster themed I have, Who has game with ten frames. 

As an added bonus, we have also included four different journal prompts for use with the book, Monsters Love School. The four journal prompts that are included are: "My favorite part of the story", "My favorite thing about school", "What I want to learn", and "What am I worried about". We have included five different versions of each of these journals to meet the needs of your diverse learners. 
Thank you for joining us again this week! We hope you are all enjoying your summer!

Fun with Splash Balls!!

In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, we are going to go WAAAAAAAAAAAY back to three weeks ago, the last week of school! Our friend, Cara Taylor (Creative Playground), wrote a post on our collaborative blog, The Primary Pack, about a unique end of the year gift for your students.
Splash Balls!!!
You can read Cara's post here! She shows you how to make these fun and easy gifts!

They were so easy to make! The children were so excited just to help making them! They loved the colors and just thought they were "cool!" We chose to use 5 strips of sponges, we thought that worked the best for us. 

We had a GREAT time with these splash balls. We went right outside of both of our classrooms, took several containers of water with us, and just had a blast!! It was a fun way to spend part of our last day of school with our children!! These pictures tell it all:










Thanks to Cara for such a great idea!! We had so much fun and the joy on the children's faces says it all. It was the perfect way to end our school year together.
