Monday Made It!

Hello all! Well I am a little late on my Monday Made It, but here it goes.  First of all. my summer break is flying by!! It wont be too long before I have to start getting my classroom ready.  Anyway, I found a lot of goodies at Dollar Tree last week!  My Dollar Tree is on the other side of the town that I live in, so half of the time I forget that I have one! Below are pictures of what I found!

Here are some books that I picked at Dollar  Tree as well.Can you believe that? Books like this for $1?
Now here are some things I picked up for writing activities.  The "My Story" templates open up so that the kiddos can write their own story.  There are 10 to each package!

Amazon Deal!! I love Amazon!! I am a Prime Member, so I receive 2-day shipping for FREE!  You can try out Amazon Prime for 30 days HERE
These pencils are only $1.99 for a box of 12! HERE is the link to purchase.  

Our school has adopted a new math curriculum. So, I am trying to plan my activities that will go with it.  Let's talk Math Workshop for just a minute.  Here is how I have done it in the past:
Warm-Up(5-10 min.)
Mini lesson(20 min.)
First Small Group(15 min)
Second Small Group (15 min)
Wrap Up (5 min.)
I have used a schedule like this when I only have 1 hour for Math.  Now there a million ways to teach math.  I have done a little differently each year.  Now that I am in third grade, I will be able to have a longer math block. What do you do during your math block? Please comment below!!

Monday Made It!

Well, my husband and I just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary!  I can't believe its been that long!  We have been through so much together, and I am thankful for him everyday!


I have been working like crazy to get some TpT products finished.  I have just finished this Apple unit for Kindergarten.  Here are a few pictures of the unit:
I love Write the Room activities!! I normally have my students rainbow write the words once they complete writing the words. 
I have also included a Life Cycle activity in this unit.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Differentiation Cubes!  Its my new obsession!  I have taught every grade K-4(Yes, I know, Whew!) and I can see these being used in all of them.  I am currently teaching 3rd grade and I am planning on using them a lot!  Ill do a separate post later about my ideas.  I purchased mine from Mardel.  I used their app and got 20% off!!
I created a simple CVC game to show you just one of the many ways these could be used.  HERE is the link for this FREEBIE!  

The theme of my classroom will be Superheroes this year.  I am so excited!  I am creating different things for my kiddos and I wanted to share this one with you.  Isn't so cute!  Anyway grab this FREEBIE HERE.  Please provide feedback!! Happy Monday!
