A Frosty Freebie!

 We're bringing you our latest frosty freebie today!

Counting By 2's, 5's and 10's is a very practical skill we build in class all year long. 
Count your steps by 2's.
Clap by 5's.
Turn to your partner and slap hands together by 10's.
Touch the sky.
Touch the ground.
Turn around.
Simon Says...
Pretty please!?!?

For many of our kiddos, this skill is still a little tough...
Now that we've introduced counting nickels and dimes, things just got a whole lot tougher!

So, this fine December (December!?!?!?) we're giving them some extra practice with our 
Skipping Through Winter ~ Skip Counting By 2's, 5's and 10's

Three skip counting activities and worksheets to boot!

Plus, we've included this number grid and teacher direction cards for extra support!
Give them marshmallows or another fun winter manipulative, and have them mark their skip counts on the grid.

 If you're looking for a new program to start in the New Year, check out our Timed Math Tests with incentives. We have Addition, Subtraction, and Multiplication and have 5 different themes. They're a great way to get kids motivated to learn their facts!
While you're there, you might want to check out our latest winter Megapack...
We are firm believers in the motto, "Work smarter, not harder".
Creating and preparing centers activities each week takes a ton of our time!
You know you work too long when your car is the only one left in the school parking lot and you need your flashlight app to navigate your way back to it!

In an effort to GO HOME  check centers prep off our lists, we've created enough activities to carry us through the entire Winter Season! 
Three months of centers prepped...

is a follow up to our Top Seller
This time around, we wanted to keep the activities similar enough to keep them working independently (Have we told you how much we love the I word in first grade? We do!), but different enough to challenge them in the middle of first grade and keep carrying them through the Common Core Standards.
So, we've kicked things up a notch!
{Channeling our inner Emerils}

We're diving right in this fine first week of December with a few of our favorites...
We prep each activity, with lots of recording sheets and keep them in their own gallon size plastic bag.
We keep all of them in a tub, easily accessible all season.
We grab from it all winter and fire up our cars long before Daylight Savings kicks in! 
The gift that keeps on giving!

Happy Winter Friends!
