Friday Freebie Giveaway!

I am happy that I am in my "groove" at school and starting to have more time to blog again!  I'm sure you all have been crazy busy as well and know what I mean!  I wanted to share with you a sample center that I created to use with my kiddos for addition strategies.  We have been working on instant math fact tests and using our "mental math strategies" (no adding on fingers allowed).  My students will sort these addition facts by doubles, doubles +1, doubles -1, and the make a 10 (help Mr. Nine become a Ten) strategy.  I hope you look at this "Hoppy" Halloween Addition Facts Center and try it with your students.  Enjoy!- Yvonne

Posters for Fire Safety Week!!!

I just downloaded posters I plan to use for Fire Safety Week coming up in a couple of weeks!  I decided to do a "poster of the day" with my class in addition to reading weekly readers and books about fire prevention/safety.  I love the cute bear graphics that are on scrappindoodles and couldn't help myself when I saw this set.  I hope you will check it out!  Thanks!-Yvonne
