Wake 'em Up!

Education Inspirational Quote
Wake 'em up!


Happy Monday!

This idea takes me back to college days. One of the key thoughts about education that stuck with me is that the goal isn't to simply impart knowledge, but rather to develop a hunger for wanting to learn and explore more. School is building the foundation of skills so students can go out and continue learning throughout their whole lives.

What are some ways that you awaken the desire for more knowledge?

Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July! Summer is officially in full swing. Our family is in the middle of a big move. We are thankful that we get to spend this holiday weekend with good friends and family that we haven't seen in years. We are excited to get the grill going, set up a few outdoor games for the kids, eat lots of food, and of course enjoy the fireworks. Our neighbors already got an early start with the fireworks.

I hope you all enjoy the long holiday weekend.


Aside from getting ready to celebrate the Fourth of July, I have been working on a couple new products. The first is a Color Matching Activity featuring colorful dinosaurs. This set includes a variety of activities with clip cards, matching, color the room, and more. Click here to learn more.

Practice with Counting Coins

Winter Counting Coins - Pennies, Nickels, and Dimes

Do your students need a little extra practice with counting coins? This winter-themed activity focuses on counting pennies, nickels, and dimes. There are 15 printable activity pages, organized into 3 different types of activities: 

  • Counting Coins Activity - Students count the coins and write the total. 
  • Color the Total Activity - Students are given an amount and color in the coins needed to make the total,
  • Draw it Out Activity - Students draw the coins needed to make a given amount.

Students enjoy this fun and interactive way to practice counting coins. Print on cardstock and laminate to create write and wipe pages that can be used with dry erase markers.

Ringing in the New Year

Happy New Year 2016!! 


We are ringing in the new year. Welcome 2016!




It's hard to believe that the new year is already here. I am slightly in denial about heading back to school on Monday. When I left for vacation, I had all kinds of plans to prepare for the next semester. Hmm... What happened to that list? I am happy to say that I did enjoy a nice relaxing vacation with my family. But, now it is time to get serious and get ready for school.

Here are a few of my recent Winter Themed resources to help you with planning.

Measuring Length - Winter Measurement Cards

Students have fun as they measure length. Each card features fun winter theme graphics and a line. Students measure the length of the line and record it on one of the included recording sheets. Non-standard rulers are included. You can also use any small manipulative to measure. I like to use snapping cubes. These measuring length cards make a fun interactive math center. You could also use them as "measure the room" activity.


Look for my other Measuring Length Activities:

Use these little number matching puzzles for an engaging math center activity that is easy to set up. Simply print and cut apart the cards. Use cardstock and laminate for durability.  Students match the numbers 1-20 with the corresponding ten frames.

I also have a set of coordinating letter matching puzzles that focus on matching uppercase and lowercase letters.

Look for my other number matching puzzles with ten frames:

Winter Number Puzzles: 1-20

Number Puzzles: Counting 1-20 - Winter
Number Puzzles: Counting 1-20 - Winter
These number puzzles also focus on counting numbers 1-20. Each page features a colorful winter picture with 10 numbers ranging from 1-20 on the bottom. Simply print and cut apart the puzzle pieces. Students arrange the numbers in order to make the picture. Both color and black line versions are included.

This Winter Number Puzzle set is also included in the Number Puzzle Bundle. Save money by purchasing the entire bundle.
