Awesome Common Core Flip Book..Oh My!!!

Okay, I have found the Bible for common core!  This flip book is so nice to keep handy on your desk.  It was put together by Melissa Hancock from Kansas and uses several other states' unpacked standards to form this flip book.  It has many examples and really gives a great understanding of each standard.  I have made mine two ways.

The first way is with the tabs like the directions on the front explain.  I did have to cut a few pages so the tabs would show.  I also had to bind the top in order for it to work correctly. Click HERE to go to the main website and scroll to the bottom.  All grade levels are listed so be sure to share with your school!

I also made it by putting it in a binder.  I tabbed each section and it was a lot easier to make and I think it will hold up better.

Hope you enjoy this little jewel like I have!

Brrr Baby it's cold in Alabama!!

I don't know about your neck of the woods but we are really cold, wet, and icy here in Alabama today!  I have launched my TPT store (check it out on the right side of the blog).  I only have two items in it for now but  I'm working on a huge dice unit with subitizing and working with numbers so be looking for it soon.  Here are a few goodies I have found that should be helpful in the coming weeks to you! 

This first activity is matching tens frames to number cards.  It can be used as a quick assessment or just a station activity.  Click the picture to get your copy. Also, click HERE to visit another blog full of these activities!

If you have never visited the Illuminations Website, you are really missing out on a great resource! Click the picture to see this activity.  This will be great practice whole group, with the SMART board, or in a computer station.

Shapes, Shapes, Wonderful Shapes!!

I saw this on Pinterest so I'm not sure where it is from but what a great idea!  I think you can figure it out from the picture what the teacher did.  I plan to make myself a set this week and try them out.  This is great in meeting Common Core standard K-G 4.

This activity will be a great introduction to your shape units.  Click the picture to get your free copy.  Be sure to check out this teacher's other products while in her TPT store!

Here a few links to some great YouTube videos on shapes...Enjoy! 

Hope all of you have a great day!  Take care and God bless!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of you!  2012 was a busy year for me but I look forward to the new things that will occur in 2013. I want to start off with reminding everyone that if you would like to know when I update my blog simply insert you email in the box on the right side of the blog.  Be sure to verify it by clicking on the link when it is sent to your email. 

This first activity is super cute, FREE, and great to begin the new year!  It is from one of my teachers, Marisa Frederick.  She has posted it on TPT. Click the picture to get your copy.  Also click HERE to visit her blog.  Be sure to follow her! 

I posted some things earlier about the 100th day but I found a blog that has lots of great ideas.  Click the picture to see all of them.

I LOVE "I have...who has cards"  If you haven't used them in your room then you are really missing out!  These are great for number recognition and subitizing.  I found them on this blog. Click the picture to get your copy!

The last activity is from the K-5 Math Teaching Resources site.  They are called playdoh mats and are used in constructing the basic shapes.  These are great for stations and for the children to learn the basic shapes. Click the picture for your copy.  

Again...Happy New Year and I hope 2013 brings health and happiness to all of you!
