Fall/Halloween Math and Literacy Centers

I am excited to announce I just finished my Fall Math and Literacy Centers!!!  I put a lot of thought and hard work into this pack.  I cannot wait to use these fun/adorable centers in my own classroom!  I will spend a day or two next week printing and laminating to get them ready!  Click the picture to check it out!  There are over 20 centers total.  The cost is $8.50-- I promise you will not be disappointed!  I created this pack with the common core in mind.  So, if you are like me and have to teach to the CC, this pack is just what you need!
And---- I do not know about you... but this week has been CrAzY!  Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday & next week is Fall Break!  Just 24 more hours... I think I can, I think I can.....

Donate money for a good cause...

Today, while scrolling through my blog list I noticed that my friend Lori had blogged about a young boy in KY having cancer and how you can help.  Well, of course I was touched by the sad story and felt compelled to donate money & to share it with all of you!  The boy in this picture was diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer and he needs our help!  Some wonderful teachers in the blogging community have come together and donated loads of awesome products to help raise money for this family!  I just love teachers and their giving hearts!  If you donate $30 to help this family, you will get $250 worth of products from tpt for free!  What a steal?!?  Not only are you helping out a family in need, but you are getting a crazy amount of awesome products for super cheap!!  Click the picture to find out how you can help!
Even if you are unable to donate, prayer is very powerful!  Keep this family in your prayers!!!

Random post..

Well, I have been busy.. no surprise there!!  I guess that's why you're wondering where your next Friday Freebie is...  well, Saturday will have to do!  I just made a quick little count by tens page.  My kiddos need a little more practice with it, and I wanted it to be something tangible (even though we love singing along with YouTube!  I wanted each student to visibly see the numbers.  Next week I will give each student a sentence strip and a copy of this paper.  Then, they have to count by tens and glue them in order on the sentence strip. I thought this would be perfect for morning work, and it would be an easy assessment to check who can count by tens or recognize numbers yet..

We couldn't be more excited and thrilled (if you couldn't tell by the picture).  haha  I love that my husband has his hand in his mouth.  So fun!  We did a gender reveal party, invited my family, skyped with his, etc... the whole nine yards!  It was perfect! 
Just wanted to share with my wonderful blogging buddies. 
Have a great rest of the weekend.
P.S.- Be on the look out for my Fall Math and Literacy unit.

Book Boxes!!!

Look at my book boxes!!!!
I was proud of how cute they looked, I just had to share with all my friends!!  Each box is simply an ice box from Wal-Mart (only $1 a piece).  I cannot take credit for the idea-- a co-worker inspired me with a picture she found.  She also told me it'd be cute to add colored duct tape-- and it sure is! 
Here is a close-up.  I had to add those adorable owls, using velcro dots, to put their names on their boxes.
So far, we've added a cute little (free) book from Deanna Jump's blog (Click here to grab her freebie) using the sight word I, our Brown Bear Color Words book, & our Journals.  I love how they turned out!
P.S.- Tomorrow is Friday!!!!!!!!!
