NEW...Spring Into Math: Common Core Part 2 and an Opinion Writing Freebie

I have to keep this short because I am about to go crazy with homework and kids. SOOOOOO, I have just finished up my Common Core Math Unit Part 2 ...here is a sample below.

Grab it here or click on my TpT button on the right side of my blog. 
This is truly a preview...there is so much more to this unit than this but, as I mentioned earlier...I am going CRAZY right now. The "Losing my hair" kind of crazy! 

Also, we just started Opinion writing. We did our first writing piece on our favorite Hershey kiss. Our A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Thinking Maps trainer for the district came up with this SUPER FUN introduction into this style of writing. I just created all the computer generated maps to go with it. This is for you my friends...if you do grab a copy I would LOVE to get some feedback to see what you think. I am going to enlarge the multi-flow map on the 11x17 paper for kiddos who need to write entire sentences in the boxes. I tried to explain the process but if it isn't clear please let me know and I will try to help you. 





Does anyone have a fun little craftivity for Hershey Kisses???? I would love to add something cute to this. 

Last thing...I made a related facts game. Have a look...



This little game is also available at my shop for $3.00. The kids really love this, I think they are becoming real-deal-mathamaticians! SUPER FUN TO WATCH! I would LOVE to give this little game away to a couple friends... To change it up I am going to let my little stinker five year old chose a couple random numbers, so leave a comment and I will give 3 of these games away. If you would like to "channel" my five year old stinker, his name is Zach...good luck!!!! HA!

  12. http://growingupourstyle.blogspot.com/2013/01/hersheys-kiss-craft.html You said you were looking for a craft to go with this writing activity. I know this is a little belated and I'm not sure if this link will work, but I've done a cute Hershey Kiss craft before using a cardboard kiss cutout wrapped in tinfoil. You can add googly eyes or draw on a face with permanent marker. Thank you for sharing your wonderful resources!
