Gingerbread Man Shopping Freebie!

NOW I've got your attention....the word freebie always does :) Trust me! I'm just as guilty! I outgrew my flashdrive LONG ago (and I've only been blogging for about 2 months!), and I've even had to update my Google Docs (but to be fair to me, I had to up load TONS of "books" which took up TONS of space)....
BUT since I am getting so many freebies from you oh-so-generous teachers (THANK YOU ALL!!!), I feel better about buying even MORE at everyone's TpT store! hahaha! Shhhh!! Don't tell Mr. Spouse! Trust me, my cart is full and ready for my to click "buy" when I get up tomorrow morning (YAY for Cyber Monday sale!! and double YAY for all of y'alls sales to go with it!).

Anyway, moving on to the freebie :)
This week, my theme is Gingerbread Man. One thing my students ALWAYS need practice on is MONEY - bleh!!! WHY, oh, WHY is this so hard?!?! And I only need them to get to a dollar right now...sheesh!
SO, I have created a center for them :) And the best part??? Mr. Spouse made the Gingerbread Man clipart!! oh yeah - getting him sucked into this world too!! hehe :)
I have TWO sets in the file - set 1 is counting money up to a dollar, and set 2 is adding money over a dollar. And there are tags that you can also print up for them to match to the Gingerbread Man if you want to give them that option. AND there's a recording sheet....click {HERE} to download.  But if you download - PLEASE leave a comment - I {SUPER PUFFY} HEART them! :) as if you couldn't tell by all the commenting I do on y'alls blogs...haha!


That's just one of my activities I have planned for this week..I have others too - some more of my creations :) I'm getting good at this! lol...maybe next year I'll start my own TpT store :) but with me going on maternity leave here soon, I figure my life won't allow for much creations pretty soon....
In addition to some of the things I have created, I have LOTS of great activities out there from y'all!

I have the Christmas Cookies Math Station from Live, Laugh, and Love to Learn

And All About Ginger from Tales of a Teacherista


And that's not even counting all the freebies I have acquired!

Jen....is it HORRIBLE that when I read maternity leave...I thought wow, think of all the time she can blog when new baby is sleeping. SHAME, SHAME on me. and let's be honest...I am pretty sure (although I am NOT a mommmy....that there wont be a lot of extra time...or atleast thats what I have heard)! Anywaysss, thanks for the freebie...in 2nd money is the HARDEST thing I teach...and time...and double digit subtraction...hmm...oh well, only 3 weeks til' Christmas!
