Thank You Donors Choose!

If you haven't used DonorsChoose.org before, I totally recommend it!
If you don't know what it is, go check it out!

It's a place teachers can go to submit things they need for their classrooms.
iPads, listening centers, books, supplies...and so much more!
You type up a little explanation about how the item(s) would benefit your class.  
Then people (totally awesome people) can donate towards your project.  

Look what we just got for our classroom!!!


A brand new number grid carpet!
Isn't it beautiful?!?!
If only you could have seen the kids faces when they saw it. <3

Not only is it the perfect size for our class meetings, 
but it makes math a MILLION times more fun!

We've been playing all kinds of games on it.  
Skip counting, adding, place value practice.
It's even become our latest math center.  
Giant Race to 120?
YES PLEASE!


It's the greatest carpet ever!

So thank you DonorsChoose.org for making math waaaaay more fun!

Winter Addition Puzzles!

I hope you are all enjoying your winter break!
I know I am. :)

I've been working hard to get my Winter Addition Puzzles ready for January!
Here they are!!


My kids are LOVING these puzzles. 
I just know they'll love these winter ones too!

If you haven't seen the puzzles before, they're super fun!
Plus they're super easy to get ready.
AND super easy to differentiate!

The kids solve for the missing number.
Some have a missing sum.
Others have a missing addend.


Then they'll cut them out.


Glue together and color!


Here are some of the other puzzles!

Hot cocoa...yum!


Mr. Bear has addition to 20.


So does Mr. Squirrel. :)


This puzzle practices adding groups of ten.


These two have missing addends.



Adding has never been so fun!
My kids are going to be so excited for them. :)
