Did You See This?, Winners and a $1 Sale

Goodness Gracious Gravy Me!  Did you see this adorable Mother's Day activity over at Fluttering Through First Grade?  Can It get any cuter than this????  It is so much fun checking out all the amazing work being done by teachers.   You should hop on over to their Facebook page where they will be giving one of these away.  

Photo: We just found out that our Mother's Day dreams of lounging at the spa, doing absolutely nothing, have been burst...Instead, our day will be filled with sports tournaments for the kids...Which is 'fine', but not exactly the zen we were hoping for...Sooo, we're retaliating tonight by creating a little gift E-SPA-cially for Mom! :D

 I am excited to announce the two winners of  my 

"All Kinds of  Fun with Adjectives, Nouns, and Verbs"  Oh, but before I announce the winners I want to say "FLASH SALE" IF YOU DIDN'T WIN, NO WORRIES I AM PUTTING THIS PACK ON SALE FOR $1 until sometime tomorrow or whenever I remember to turn off the sale! Ha last time I said I was having a flash sale it wasn't so "flashy"  because I forgot to go back and turn the flash off  for several days.  
Now on to the two lucky winners...

Congrats I will e-mail your copy to you.  

Have a great weekend!

Thank You, A New Game, and A Giveaway for Adjectives, Nouns, and Verbs

WOW!  Can you believe the PLETHORA of freebies Krista from Creative Clips GAVE AWAY during her 10 day celebration?  This gal has a talent she could monopolize on so easily but instead she is keeping it real and providing amazing resources to teachers.  KRISTA, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I also want to thank everyone that took the time to link up one or more of their wonderful resources to help Krista celebrate; you too are making a difference by helping other teachers put great resources in their classrooms. 

Ready, Set, Show is a game you can play with just about any skill.  I like playing this game because at the games end you will know which students need a little more practice on the skills you were reviewing.  This is a quick game that can be used as a follow up to a lesson or as a time filler if a lesson runs short or your schedule changes. (I’m sure that never happens at your school.) 

Here’s how you play:

Today’s skills are Nouns & Verbs. 
  1. Make a list of nouns and verbs you would like to use.
  2. Give each student a noun and verb card.
  3. Have students place the two cards on their desk face up.
  4. Students should place one hand on each card.
  5. Say a word from your list, then say Ready, Set, Show. (hands         and cards should remain on students desk until you say “show”.
  6.  Students should hold up the correct card.
***It is easy to tell which students need more practice by their      wondering eyes and hesitation. 

WHO WANTS TO PLAY?  If you would like to win a copy of “ALL KINDS OF FUN” with Adjectives, Nouns, and Verbs leave a comment with your e-mail address. If you would like two chances to win you can also stop by our Facebook page and leave a comment with your e-mail. I will pick one winner on each page sometime before Thursday. Here's a peek of what's inside "ALL KINDS OF FUN WITH ADJECTIVES, NOUNS AND VERBS"

 I am so excited for the success Krista is feeling from the amazing work she puts into providing teachers with affordable and AMAZINGLY adorable clip art. Since Krista has always been more than generous with her freebies and sharing is contagious I thought it would be fun to celebrate Krista's success by linking up freebies made with her clip art.
