Almost February

I get so excited about it almost being February because of all the fun topics to teach!!  I enjoy teaching Dental Health and Presidents Day!!  
I have several products available in my TpT store for both topics AND some FREEBIES in this post.  Click here or the pictures below to check out A Trip to the Dentist.
I also have a freebie that is called 3 Facts and a Fib.  If you are interested, click here.
And Presidents Day is also one of my all time favorite topics to teach kinders.  I created this easy to use and easy on the printer (print-friendly) unit for Presidents Day.  This unit is geared towards kindergarteners.  It is packed with graphic organizers for Presidents Day and American symbols and emergent readers for your emerging and eager readers.

Here is a freebie for Presidents Day!!  Click the picture above to download.

Valentine's Day FREEBIE!

Starting off the New Year, our school has a new librarian.  She is a wonderful lady that taught preschool for 25 years and has a true love of books and reading.  She was a WONDERFUL find and we are so glad to have her.  She asked me this week if she should get Valentine's for the whole school.  Instead of having her buy so many Valentine's, I decided to make her Valentine bookmarks that she could give to the kids!

I made a black and white version and color version.  Both can be downloaded for FREE here! They look great on colored paper and much cheaper to print.  

Copy them on white paper and you have a bookmark that the kids can color themselves. 

 I am hoping that if my son colors one, he might not loose it.  This is what he uses as a bookmark...any scrap he can find.

Have a great Valentine's Day!

Interactive Math Journals { Place Value }

Place value can be such a fun topic to teach in first grade.  When students really "GET" it you feel such a sense of pride.  Here are some interactive notebook activities that will help you teach place value to your primary kiddos!

Students count 10's and 1's and determine if the amount is more or less and 100!

Students find 10 more, 10 less, 1 more and 1 less than a given number.

Students match the ones, tens, and hundreds block units.

Students count tens and ones to show a number.

Students draw the base tens blocks and ones to show the number.

Students show 10 more and 10 less than a given number.

Students mentally add or subtract 10 from any number.

Student circle ones into groups of 10's.

Students use the <, >,  and = than sign to show place value.
