Math EVERY day, Surprise, and a new kid

Whew!!  I did it!

I have been working on this bad-boy since before school started....

and even though I've been using in my classroom since Day 1, I never had it put together well enough to share with anyone...

But since today I've been home, a little under the weather, then I decided that perhaps I might finish one thing off my to-do list
(what lesson plans for this week??)

Soooo....without further ado...

I use this pack every day in my class to reinforce and review skills. I even teach them skills that we haven't taught yet in the curriculum so when I get there, they already know it! 
Which is FAB - U - LOUS, because then I can skip that unit/topic all together and go back to something they need extra help on OR I can go further than what is planned....it's a thing of beauty really.

This pack has:
Name for the year
Number words
Hundreds chart
Weather charts for the year, with an analyze the data page for each month
Mystery number riddle templates and posters
Place value and number sense, starting with two digits, but options for three and four digit numbers
More and less with the hundreds chart
Fact family with added addition and subtraction sentences
Greater than/less than
Tally marks
A page for students to create word problems
EXTRAS to change out throughout the year

And lots of pictures and "Teacher Tips" to help you walk through it!

And it doesn't matter when you start it - last year I started this almost 2/3 of the way through school, and my kids STILL needed it!

OK friends....

HERE is my surprise for you!!!

starting tomorrow NIGHT (that's MONDAY, OCTOBER 1st)

I am hosting a giveaway with MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY friends.

They have all GRACIOUSLY donated one of their Halloween-themed units for this giveaway.

The themes include bats, spiders, and just pure fun, Halloween!

There are about 25 packs up for grabs, so make sure you come back tomorrow!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One last thing...

I have a friend who has decided to take the plunge into the blogging world!!

It's a big jump, and I remember a year ago when I decided to do it - not knowing ANYONE who has done it before...but a year later, I have so many friends and have grown so much, probably one of the BEST jumps I could take!!

So do me a favor, head over there and share some bloggy love!

She's a 4th grade teacher, but she has some great ideas that everyone could use!
