FREE Spring Place Value and 2 Digit Numbers Center

Place value activities

I have had so much fun putting this packet of 8 center games together. I have used all the digital graphic skills I have been exploring and teaching myself to make our latest collection of math games super special. I loved being able to keep a theme and colour selection running through the collection. 

The centers are for students that are exploring numbers to 99 and particularly place value. I am aiming to have a few more Spring packets released sooon, that focus on other areas of maths and literacy. 

You can get this new packet over at TpT now by clicking on the image below:


I could not resist making one of the games totally FREE for you though - it is just one of the eight games that come in the packet. I hope you will find it useful - click on the image below to find it at TpT also.


Crazy Ladybugs - Revised Free Graphics



Today I spent some of Valentine's Day with my gorgeous little lady "Miss 4", who is so excited about the upcoming arrival of her baby sister or brother. She made me a gorgeous Valentine at preschool, and wrote "I love you Mum", it was very sweet. We talked about Valentine's Day and eventually played a game where we looked for as many red things that we could find in her toy room. We also settled on some lovely ladybug story books (and non-fiction) to read - as let's face it, I am all in favour of lying on the lounge with my ever-expanding feet and ankles elevated - and reading books to my sweetie is perfect when lying on the lounge. The Bad Tempered Ladybird was her favourite.


We made this giant Ladybug Tic-Tac-Toe game from a sheet of red card, and coloured paper. I run a preschool art class at my local church, and tomorrow we are playing this game ahead of making some individual smaller versions (see below). The lines were made with masking tape. My Miss 4 L-O-V-E-D winning at Tic-Tac-Toe and she beat me 4 games to 2!


Here is a little version of the Tic-Tac-Toe game that we will make tomorrow at art class. Hopefully the little-ones will have fun making their ladybug game and then playing the game with Mum or Dad.


I cut the red shape from a foam sheet and have used glitter glue to draw the lines, pipe cleaners to make the legs, and sticky googly eyes. I stuck everything down at the back with masking tape and then glued the entire ladybug to another sheet of foam. I am giving the little ones foam shapes (flowers and stars) to use as "counters" for the game, as they are inexpensive.

You Know You're A Teacher......


I must have around 300 - not kidding.

Sweet Little Luv Bug Card

A free Valentine’s Day craft

Make BIG LUV BUG first and use pipe cleaners to create heart-shaped antennas

After you have made a LITTLE LUV BUG, fold the arms, so that he is getting a lovely big Valentine's Day hug! This craft card would also be great for Mother's Day.

I have included coloured versions, as well as black and white. There are versions with "I Love Hugs" and plain ones as well!

I hope your little ones enjoy creating this card to give to a favourite friend or family member!


Sorting

Hello blog friends - first let me say how excited I am - I just realised that we now have 328 followers! When did that happen - I have vague recollections at working hard to get to 100. Thank you, thank you, thank you, I appreciate each and every one of you! By the way, when I say "we", I am referring to my From the Pond partner husband Brett. He supports me so much - I find myself saying "we" all the time! He does a lot of cutting and laminating for me, and email correspondence on our eBay store. He is wonderful, and I admire how much he has supported me through this journey, right from when I explained why I was spending the first $77 to buy a laminator and some cardboard! Let's just say he doesn't ask anymore!

What have I been up to? LOTS! I have recently started some leave from teaching, to have our second baby. I brought home all of my personal teaching belongings as I am not quite sure what I will be doing when I return in August. So......11 years worth of resources takes up a little bit of space. I have it all stacked in the garage at the moment, as I just have to clean and sort through all of it before I pack it away.

Anyhow, I have started sorting through boxes and boxes of resources and laminated centers and games. I want them all organised in easy-to-lift file boxes. I had them in big boxes in the classroom, but found these smaller boxes at Big W recently, and they have a handle on the top. Much easier to lift, and I will be able to make each one specific for a strand of each subject. For example, I would like one for "Addition with Numbers Less then 10". They sit nicely in my garage cupboards and when I am back at work, I will be able to grab a suitable box when I am working with a specific small group of students.

The top shelf here shows some of what I have to sort, the second shelf, what I have done so far........the rest is on the garage floor...... o dear




I have also been sorting my daughter's toy cupboard. I want it to be easy for her and lovely little darlings that come to play with her - TO PACK AWAY! So, the labelled boxes have been a hit! Not only can she pack away faster, she is re-engaging with toys she had forgotten about. It is not finished, as you can see by the top shelf, but I will get there. One half of me is highly organised, and the other half of me likes to jump from job to job, so I always have a zillion things on the go!


Have a great day, I am back to some sorting..........
