A Year Long Technology Project

Are you looking for a YEAR-LONG technology idea to do with your class this or next year? Watch this Prezi for some ideas about something you could do with a few tools (and possibly some help from a few volunteers).

I am always looking through Pinterest for technology ideas I can use in my classroom. Please tell me about some of your favorite ideas!

Enjoy the Prezi!

Feel the Love, Valentine Math Freebies

"I'm doooo-ooooone!" we have all heard those words from one of our lightning flash fast students at one point or another. When my students are finished with their work, I have them turn to their "unfinished work" folder. However, when the work is finished there too, I will then let the students work in a center or work in pairs on the iPads. At times, there is really not quite enough time to really start an activity on the iPad or in a center, so I always keep a current folder of an extension activity for math and phonics. Here are a few of my favorite February ones just for you.

In the spirit of Valentine's Day activities, I have some that I have created that you can have for FREE!

A Valentine Pictograph

This is a card game that can be laminated, cut, and played with either in a math center or individually in the classroom. This activity reinforces knowing how to count from 1-20 and also reinforces matching objects to numbers. This game can also be used as an assessment by having the children try to put the number cards in correct order from 1-20. Accelerated students could then match the correct object card to the number card.

Give each student a box of candy hearts. Have them sort their colors on to the sorting sheet first. Then have them graph their candy on the Valentine Heart Graph. I allow my students to remove their candy and place it back in the box and then use the correct colored crayon to show how many hearts were on each line. I then send the paper and the box of candy hearts home with the students. This is a HUGE hit every year.

Finally, how about some BONUS LOVE! If you enjoy these activities and leave a comment about how you might use my activities with your email address, I will send you my  most popular math activity for FREE! This is a paid product in my TpT store, but I will send it to you for FREE!

A Super Offer

I plan to be watching the Super Bowl with my family tomorrow. However, I will also be checking out some of my fellow teacher's stores that are having a 20% off sale on their products.

Primary Possibilities

Stephany at Primary Possibilities is hosting a link up of teachers that all plan to offer sales to you tomorrow during the Big Game. Click on her button to be taken to the group. Thanks, Stephanie!

I will be one of the teachers hosting a 20% off sale. My sale runs February 2nd through February 4th. Click on the picture to be taken to my store.

As a thank you to all who purchase from my store during this sale, I will help you get ready for Mother's AND Father's Day with a free copy of BOTH my Mother's Day and Father's Day journals. These are great to complete for morning work. My students complete a page a day until they are finished. I then bind them and save them as a gift for the parents in my class. 

Just leave a comment below with your email and the product you purchased from my store and I will send both PDFs your way for free!

You can click on both pictures below to see if you would like to use them!
