A "Sweet" Math Center Freebie!

I saw these cute little candy bag graphics from Creative Clips and just knew exactly what I wanted to make with them.  It's a "sweet" math center for your students to use during center time or as an "I'm finished, what can I do now?" activity.  The activity gives students a chance to practice solving addition problems involving three addends.  A recording sheet is included if you want to use the center as an assessment.  I've also included two practice worksheets to help your students get more practice with adding three numbers.
    I'm making this a Freebie over in my TPT store.  Head on over and download it now.  Please follow and share it with other teachers you know who might enjoy a "sweet" little activity for their class.  I'd love it if you left some feedback to let me know what you think.  I love hearing from the teachers who use my products in their classrooms!

Journeys Spelling Word Cards

I've got my very first second grade item ready to go. Since I'm in a new grade I needed to make a new set of Spelling Word Cards for my pocket chart. We use the Journeys series so I typed up all of the spelling words for the year. (I'll be busy printing and cutting for a while!) I made this set with black and white word cards with the challenge words on red bordered cards. The set also includes worksheets: a Spelling Sentence worksheet, an ABC Order worksheet and a Spelling Test worksheet. They are decorated with cute apples, stars and pencils from Creative Clips.


There's about to be a big change over here at The Teddy Bear Classroom. I'll be switching grade levels in September. I've been teaching first grade for the past 16 years and have absolutely loved it! I always wanted to be a first grade teacher so I was thrilled when that was where I ended up when I was first hired. This year I'll be leaving my classroom (don't worry, the teddy bears will be coming with me!) and moving schools and moving to second grade. I've been busy making new things to use with my new grade level and will be posting them here on the blog and in my TPT store as I get them ready.
I've been busy surfing the web looking for some great second grade teacher blogs to follow. If you have a second grade blog or if you know of one I should be following, please let me so that I can follow it.
