Google Eye Fun!

Okay know you enjoy playing around with graphics when you get excited about google eyes!  I just downloaded my Silly Face Shape Riddles Tiered Math Tub that I created from some silly graphics I designed!  I really do enjoy making my own pics and hope to have time this summer to just "play" around with some things!  We reviewed shapes this last week before our benchmark testing and I realized my students needed a little extra with shape vocabulary so I plan to use this in the next week.  This really does challenge them as the terms and language gets more advanced!  Hope you'll check it out!   Enjoy the rest of your afternoon friends! Thanks!-Yvonne

Sassy Cat Beach Centers...Finally!!!

Whew!  I finally finished my "Sassy Cat Goes to the Beach" Math and Literacy Centers!  This has been one busy week for all of us at school.  I am so glad our Benchmark testing is over!!!  Time to go out tonight and relax with my hubby!  I've been working evenings to finish up my first Sassy Cat Center packet (to go with my Sassy Cat Spending Spree Math Tub) and hope you will go on over to my store to check it out!  I look forward to using these centers with my own students!  I've also downloaded my Sassy Cat Sand Play Pronouns "freebie" as a sample for you all! Be sure to get this as well for your summer fun activities.
I decided to add an extra option with this download!  I received a comment from someone that I'd like to share...
"I LOVE your centers, I just wish they weren't all in color or that you gave B&W and Color options. Keep up the great ideas."
I wrote back...  "Thank you for your purchase and feedback on my Math and Literacy Centers! I so appreciate you mentioning the color options. I wasn't aware that teachers would want B&W as an option for center pieces until you mentioned it. I've made a B&W answer sheet but not center pieces. I decided to make my center packets from here on out with both options thanks to your suggestion. Thank you for that! Please check out my Sassy Cat Goes to the Beach coming this week with color and B&W center pieces. I hope this will make things easier for you and other teachers to prepare centers/activities for your students. Thanks again!"-Yvonne Dixon (Sassy in Second)So...  I decided to offer...  BLACK AND WHITE OPTION INCLUDED IN THIS DOWNLOAD! These centers give you the option of printing in color on cardstock or black and white on colored construction paper!   Each page is duplicated to make it easier for teachers to prepare. I hope this works well for everyone! 

On another week I need to begin making Mother's Day crafts.  We do "Muffins for Moms" in Second grade at our school and the children present their moms with special gifts and goodies!  I need to hit up Pinterest to get some cute ideas!  I'd love to know what everyone else is planning to do.  If you have a cool idea you'd like to share please leave a note below!  Thanks and have a great night everyone!-Yvonne

Bundle Packs!

I've had several emails and requests for "bundle packs" or downloads of my tiered math tubs.   Now you can get FIVE leveled/tiered activities for the price of THREE in my... Sports Fun Tiered Math Tubs!  I've wondered which would be best for most folks-selling my tubs individually or in packets.  For me personally, I like to get a good deal...and that usually happens when you buy in bulk. :)  These tubs will remain on my TPT store individually or you have the option of getting all five at a discounted price!  Having this option should work for everyone!  On another note...I am FINALLY on spring break!  Whoo-Hoo!!!  It seems that everyone else has already had theirs.  Love my children but I need a break!  So looking forward to some R&R with my family and getting away!  We plan to go to Savannah and try out Paula Dean's restaurant and hit the beach a day or two!!!  Hope you all have had an amazing break as well.  Have a wonderful week friends!-Yvonne
