Spring has Sprung and Games are Fun Blog Hop!

I'm so excited after a few months "off" from creating stuff and blogging...I got my creative juices flowing to join 19 of my "bloggy" friends to bring you this great blog hop!
You will learn about a game, get a freebie and even enter to win a prize! YAY!

So I literally just finished my spring conferences (like just 2 hours ago) and boy I'm tired but I'm so excited to share my freebie game with you...YES free!  Yesterday we had a work day, which I love and hate, fortunately I have all of my report cards done so I got to do some lesson planning. I'm pleased to say that my week after spring break is planned and even the week stressing ;) So in  reviewing what standards we are to teach (sometimes I wonder if we'll make it through!) I got inspired by the thought of spring and Krista Wallden's so cute clipart.  I came up with this little freebie. It's a game that practices a bit of number sense and place value. 

In this game students need 2 sets of number cards, a stack of butterfly cards and a stack of ladybug cards. Use 4 different colors of cardstock (2 colors for player 1 and 2 colors for player 2). You decide which cards (butterfly or ladybug) are the tens and which are the ones. 

Students build a number by drawing one card of each color and then record it on their sheet.

They write the number and then the number in expanded form. Next one student spins the spinner, you can use a pencil and a paperclip, the spinner will land on "more" or "less" this determines the winner. 

For example, in the picture above player 1 wins the round because "less" was spun and they had the smaller number. They then write a greater than/less than sentence. The students tally their wins on the bottom.

You can get this freebie from my TPT store!

Teachers for Taytum!

Over 40 TpT sellers have come together to create bundles to benefit the March of Dimes.  We decided to put these bundles together in honor of Taytum Connor.  "Teachers for Taytum" will donate all of the profits made from the bundles in Taytum’s honor to help support the research of the March of Dimes, March for Babies.  Please check out the bundles that are available below.  There is something for everyone.

Taytum Connor was born at 29 weeks.  Taytum received medications that are available because of research promoted by the March of Dimes.  Taytum's care in the NICU would not be possible without the research and funding March of Dimes has dedicated to preterm babies.  You can read more about Taytum and the Connor family's story here.
There are several different bundles that are available for purchase.  Check out the different options below.  Click on the bundle picture below for purchase.  Each bundle is only $10... an incredible value and an incredible cause!
Thank you for helping the March of Dimes, March for Babies!

These are some awesome bundles at a great price that you just shouldn't pass up... plus the proceeds benefit a great cause in the honor of a sweet little girl!  Here is a sneak peek of what you can get in each of the bundles!

Thank you so much for your support!
