A Big Sale & Crossword Puzzle Phonics Fun

March is definitely here, and the madness has begun!!  :o)  Does your March schedule seem to be filled with everything?  Take kids here, take kids there, take kids everywhere!

Back in the classroom we are reviewing, building and growing.  After learning all 44 wonderful sounds, we go back through and review.  We are finishing our 5 week short vowel review where we work on one vowel sound a week and focus on reading words with that sound.  

My kids love it when I give them a challenge, so why not do it with something that "big" people do - Crossword Puzzles.  This fun set, Crossword Puzzle Phonics Fun Set 1, includes words for all 5 short vowels and all 5 long vowels.  Each vowel sound has a crossword puzzle with 5 words and matching picture clues in two different versions: with and without a word bank.   Next week we start through our 5 week long vowel review, and I can't wait to see how the kids do.  
To find the entire Crossword Puzzle Phonics Fun set, click on the pictures above.

In math this week we have been working on chance, probability, and graphing.  I introduced the kids to tally marks, and Nicole Lanier from Lanier's Lions has a fun unit that we have really enjoyed,  Little Kitty Kalculations.
It includes some great activities for counting, making tally marks, graphing, and chance or the fancy word "probability."  The kids have loved getting to spin, count and graph the little kitties.  We start addition next week, and we will be ready because this pack includes some fun addition activities too!
Now for the exciting news.......both of these great products will be on SALE this weekend.  YEAH!!  All of my products will be on sale for 4 fabulous days from March 9th -12th.
Nicole Lanier and several other incredible people from Kinderland will be having a sale too, from March 10th - 12th.  Check it out and enjoy the madness!!
