Apples, Apples, Apples

It’s hard to believe that we already have 18 days of school under our belt and that September is here.  This is always one of our favorite times of year.  We both love all of the apple and fall themed activities that we have planned throughout the next month with our kiddos.  As you know we have been trying to update some of our most popular units and we finally have our Apple Math & Literacy Centers ready for you.  If you have already purchased it make sure you head over and get the newly revised edition.  It still contains the same great activities that can be used during your center time . . . it just has more kid friendly fonts and updated graphics.

Here’s a little {sneak} peek of the 63 page unit.



Don’t miss out on our Sensational September Morning Work Packet either.  This set of printable worksheets includes 10 apple themed math worksheets that can be used during the month of September for independent practice to reinforce math skills you have been teaching. All of the skills are aligned with the Common Core Standards.  These are the original NO PREP worksheet sets that have become so popular with so many sellers.



 We hope you all have a safe and fun weekend and find some time to relax and enjoy your extra day off. In honor of Labor Day ALL day Saturday, Sunday and Monday every item in our TpT store will be 20% off.

Extreme Makeover

Do you ever feel like you need an extreme makeover . . . you look in the mirror and your tired of seeing the same old haircut, same makeup, same go-to outfit & accessories???  Well if you said “YES” then you are just like us.  Sometimes as teachers we get tired of seeing the same old thing each year when we pull out  our old units.  So, we decided to give those old units an extreme makeover.  That’s right . . .we started off with some of the items that we always like to use to kick off the school year.  Many of these are our best all time selling items.  We went through and  jazzed up the graphics, fonts and formats to make them a little cuter!!!  It’s amazing how a few little changes can get teachers like us so excited.  We are both anxious to use the newly revised activities with our incoming kiddos when they come back to school in August.

If you have already purchased these items please head over to TpT and download the revised copies.  We have a feeling once you see them you will be as excited as we are!
      
   
  Don’t worry we are stopping here . . . there will be plenty more unit makeovers coming soon.  

We are just getting started!!!

We also thought it would be fun to offer you some summer savings.  Each day we are going to try to post a new “DAILY DEAL”.  We will offer one of the items in our TpT store at a discounted price for 1 day only.  This will give you the chance to snag a few items at far less than the normal price.  Who doesn’t love a great deal, right???
To kick off the summer saving our first DAILY DEAL is our Short Vowel FUN unit.  For those of you who don’t already own it you might want to check it out.  Today only we have reduced the price from $7 to $4.  It includes 87 pages with the following activities for each vowel sound:

Both of our classes have been completely Nuts About 1st Grade all week with this cute new set of squirrel themed centers that we created. This comprehensive set of activities reviews many of the math and language arts skills we have been working so hard on all month.

It’s been so fun for us to both watch our kiddos work cooperatively with each other on all of these activities.  It continues to amaze us how well they are ALL decoding and reading short vowel words and sight words.

Short Vowel Craftivities

Hello blogging friends!!!  After a wedding, two funerals and adopting a new reading series we are finally feeling like we are back on track and ready to jump right back into the blogging and TpT world.

Right now our firsties are working hard on reviewing letter sounds and reading basic cvc words.  So we thought it was time to jazz up some of our old activities and put them all together in one unit.

We are SO excited to announce the newest addition to our TpT store.

svc 1   svc 3

Students will begin by sound spelling the basic /cvc/ words. If the word has the corresponding short vowel sound they will cut it out and glue it inside the art project. If it doesn’t have the corresponding sound they will glue it on the back of the art project.

We hope you take a few minutes and head over to our TpT store to check out Short Vowel Craftivities.  Your students are guaranteed to have as much fun learning as you do teaching with these cute little craftivities.
