Jelly Bean Fact Families, A Freebie and Updates

This is the Hubs and mine impulse buy of the night!

Ok, so within the last 12 hours I have sampled 3 brands of jelly beans (um, can I just say this is not an addiction I recommend - man my tummy isn't feeling so smiley!) and I must say that the best I have tasted is the Starburst ones. But the Mike and Ike are close runners up!

Enough talk about jelly beans and on to what the kiddos and I tackled today. To help make Monday Math a bit more exciting, we studied fact families using tasty manipulatives. I made up this practice page (click the picture to download) as our recording sheet. The kiddos ate up this activity! ;)

Tomorrow we are going to have an fact family egg race. More on that tomorrow, so stay tuned!

Now updates: Rebecca and I posted our Sounds for Long A packet on our TpT account. So many fun activities that help our sweet lil' ones practice the 3 main ways to make the long a sound. Check it out here!

Question of the day: Do you follow the new Reading Street program from Pearson? Our school is switching over to it next year and we are wondering what to expect! :)

  20. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go
    back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
