Bright Math Ideas Blog Hop

Hey everyone!  I'm so excited to be part of this blog hop!  I'm always looking for fresh ways to boost achievement and instill a love of math in my students.  In my classroom, games are always a GREAT way to accomplish both of those goals!  

The cool thing about kindergarten is that, you can call just about any activity a "game" - and they believe you!!  :)  Hook, line, and sinker.  Especially if dice, mini erasers, or spinners are involved!!

I discovered last year how much my students absolutely ADORE spinner games!  
I think just about every teacher knows the pencil & paperclip spinner trick.
However, I found awesome transparent spinners online that my students LOVE!!
You can get a set of 10 spinners for just $7.95...that's cheaper than the Dollar Spot!!  ;)

We use our spinners all - the - time.  Seriously.  Like, I'm always afraid we're going to wear out the poor spinners, but they are really durable!!  We use them a lot with our math curriculum, but my students started requesting more spinner "games" to play during centers.  So, I happily obliged.  :)

You can pick up a FREE sample of my new Love Bunny Addition & Subtraction Spinner Games below - this game has been a huge hit with my kids!  If you're anything like me, we had so many snow days and days off school that I'm still getting some mileage out of my Valentine centers!  Hope you can, too!! 
Note:  This link is to a paid product -- the FREEBIE is included in the product preview!  
It will only be a available for this weekend, so don't miss out!!

I'd love for you to leave me a comment letting me know how you make math more fun!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Five for Friday

I always love getting to link-up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for 

I'm so excited about my newest products!  

I had such great feedback from my "FLASH" Mixed-Up Sight Words freebie that was featured in the TPT Newsletter, that I made some new coordinating sets.  My kids LOVE the challenge of figuring out these mixed-up sight words!

My sweet boys took me out last weekend for an Early Valentine's Day date!
We ate at my favorite place (Pei Wei) and watched The Lego Movie together.  
They are out of town this weekend on a "boys trip", so I'm missing them today.

After the craziness of my first kindergarten Valentine's Day last year...
I am THRILLED to report that things went much more smoothly this year! 
My kiddos loved these sweet little bouncy ball Valentine's!  
The tag was a free printable that I found here.  So cute!!

SonShine and I had so much fun putting together these fun Minecraft Valentine's for his friends.
The cards were a free printable that I found here.

I'm prepping these Silly Cat Mixed-Up Sight Words for
celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday & Read Across America!!  

I wish you all a very Happy Valentine's Day!!
Good Luck!!
