TpT Holiday Freebies

This year's holiday e-book from Teachers Pay Teachers is out! It's full of freebies for you to download and enjoy. They actually made two books for K-2 this year because there were so many great submissions. Here are links to both of them...


I can't wait to spend some time looking through them and getting fun stuff for my class!

I found a great giveaway for those of you who make your own materials (Tpt, Teacher's Notebook, etc.). Emily at Educating to the Core is giving away a subscription to Graphics Factory. Wow, that's a nice one!  Check it out on her blog...

Good luck, if you enter, but I really hope I win!  Is that wrong to say? lol

Fun Christmas Freebie

I don't know about yours, but my class loves doing glyphs... You know, those pictures you color based on answers about yourself. Well I made one for Christmas and thought I'd share it.  Enjoy!

And now for a little shameless self-promotion... TpT's big sale starts tomorrow, so here are a few of my favorite items that you might like to check out:

Cyber Monday (& Tuesday) Sale!!!

It's time for the BIG Cyber Monday & Tuesday sale on Teachers Pay Teachers!  I'm super excited because it's my first sale on TpT and I'm hoping to make a dent in my septic tank fund (see my Duty Day post...ha!) and also because I have a ton of items on my wishlist. Time to do some shopping! Here's a link to the sale...

And a freebie...

I hope you'll stop by my store. If you reply with a link to yours, I'll come see what you've got for sale too.

Place Value Cups

I love teaching math and place value is one of my favorite topics. There are so many fun ways to engage the kids. Here's a new one I just found that is so cool!

I've seen pictures of these cups before but these pics from Sue Downing's blog really show how useful they are.  We're going to be making these at school tomorrow. I think the kids will love "dialing up numbers" on them!  I think they might be really helpful for adding 10, adding 100, etc. That's one thing my kids are having some trouble with. Ooooh, I can't wait to try these!

Visit Sue's blog by clicking on the pics. She has a link to directions for making them if you aren't sure how.
