Cyber Monday Sale

Did you shop Black Friday? Do you brave the crowds on Thanksgiving night? I do not. I am not a crowds person. 

I also procrastinate, so sometimes I don't shop until Dec 24th!!!! I know, its awful!! 

Recently though, I have started online shopping. The last things I bought for myself were online because I live in a small town and don't have a lot of time to get "into town" to shop. Plus, when I go, I have two kids with me who drive me crazy, so I don't go shopping often. 

Why am, I babbling??? Because CYBER MONDAY is coming!!!! 

I love these sales!!! This is when I like to get bundles and clip art. I have been checking out my wish list as well and cleaning out some things. I obviously wish listed them for a reason. Heck, I found some free stuff I wish listed on my phone that I forgot about. Does anyone else do that? 

Be sure to gear up and save some money on these GREAT deals.  

My entire store will be 20% off, then you get 10% from TpT, which  equals out to 28% savings for you!!!! Be sure to put in the discount code TPTCYBER!!!! 

I do have some bundles that would be some great savings. I have also recently added new interactive notebook flippables and activities. 

Check it out and save big the next few days!!!!

Hope you can find something you want and need! 
Happy Shopping!

New Flippables WITH Left Side Activities

One thing I love about being off for the week is I can find time  to create more products. 

I have completed both of these with my students recently and am thrilled to finally have them ready to share! 

The first is a ratio flippable and left side activity using task cards. 

The second is a new lesson for our new standards here in Texas. 
I introduced addition and multiplication properties. I almost always do vocabulary with foldables. Then students used their foldable to complete the matching. It was actually their warm up the following day. 

I hope you will enjoy them as much as we did. I am inspired, so I am off to create more! 

Happy Thanksgiving Week Tuesday!

Anchors Away Monday

I have been MIA for a little while, just because I am so busy. But this week, I am home for Thanksgiving break and I plan to catch up!!! 

I found this great linky, I just HAVE to participate in. Deb, at Crafting Connections hosts a linky on Anchor Charts. Any subject, not just Math. 

I have anchor charts plastered in my room. I will follow the rules and just share on though. 

I hung this up after we made the one below in their interactive notebooks. 

We use the mnemonic
Kids Hate Decimals Unless Decimals Create Money 

They loved it and picked it up really quickly. 

Be sure to link up and share your ideas and ones you have found online! 

Can't wait until next week to share more.

New Students and Interactive Notebooks

I got a new student this week. We are about to finish our second six weeks of school 

I am on page 59 in my interactive notebook. The day she walked in, we were using our notebooks for new notes AND classwork. No need to panic because I have been creating extra notebooks with my classes. 

I have one notebook for myself, and a second notebook that just started off as a sample, but has everything in it.  I have been creating them along with each class period. When students are absent, I use their journals so they don't miss out on important notes. 

Since I had this second extra one, I just handed it to my new student and viola', she is right up to par with us. 

Then I was sad because now I only have one extra notebook. 

So, I got another journal and numbered my pages and checked into my "extra foldables" and have started another interactive notebook.
These extras are from me making them with my students even when there are no absences. Some are examples I made before teaching, etc... I don't have everything we have made, but I have a good amount. I had enough that starting this journal in case another new student comes will be worthwhile in the end. 
 I don't know if I will go back and add everything, but at least now I can continue working along with my classes. 
  • The extra notebook was perfect for my new student. 

  • The extra foldables I kept were perfect for me to add to another journal. 

I felt like both processes were win win!!!
