I’ve made some new products to share with you and they will ALL (along with the rest of my store) be on sale for 20% off!  Keep watching for the special code to type in at checkout so you can get up to 28% off!

First, I created a new set of Rainbow Pom-Pom Games!  This set helps your students practice the 88 sight words in the Journeys reading series.  Its played the same way the Rainbow Pom-Pom Toss game is, except with sight words!

If you don’t have the original game and really want it along with the new one, you’re in luck!!  I’ve bundled the two together so you can have your students practice a variety of skills!  Shapes, Numbers, Letters, Die Recognition, Sight Words and more!  33 different mats are included to help you reach a wide range of students and their abilities!Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 6.54.59 PM

Finally, if you missed it last week, I created these “Ways to Make” practice sheets.  My kiddos LOVE these!  All you need is some mini-erasers, sheet protector, and some dry erase markers and you are go to go!  This activity is great for practicing composing and decomposing numbers!

Gingerbread Man Map and Dollar Spot finds

Here is the map that I use to help my kids track the GBM’s travels around the world.


I got this map at Kohl’s last year and its made by Discovery Kids.  They are around $20 or so. They come with these awesome velcro labels that you can use to label the continents, oceans, countries, and even states/cities.  There are also animals included so you can show your students what animals live where. IMG_1352

Here are some of the velcro labels.  I sorted the places out from the animals to make it a little quicker to find what I need. IMG_1353When I was looking through the Dollar Spot at Target this past weekend, I found these 10 packs of foam gingerbread man and instantly thought of a math activity we could do with them to get them all decorated up. (I’ll share my idea later).  I picked up 4 packs of the GBM and 4 packs of the Pom-poms to decorate them with (along with some other goodies I already have).

Today is your last chance to shop the Tpt Cyber Monday and Tuesday sale! Don’t forget to use the code “CYBER” to get the discount!

Rainbow Pom Pom Toss

I found this game online somewhere and sketched it in my idea book a few months ago.  I finally decided to make it and I’ve tried it out with my kiddos and they LOVE it!

I call it Rainbow Pom Pom Toss (not sure where the toss part comes in because there is no tossing happening in this game! 🙂

All you need are dice and pom-poms. 🙂

Its really easy to play too!  The children roll the die that you have programmed with the letters, numbers, or shapes that are on the mat.  They place a coordinating pom-pom on the mat.

Here we are using the 1-6 mat.  You should of heard the squeals of excitement when we played!! I’ve been asked 5 or 6 times today when we can play again! 🙂


These will be going into my Math and Literacy Work Stations. 🙂  I’ll also be using them in my small groups. IMG_0974 IMG_0975

I put the pom-poms in little buckets that I got in the Target Dollar Spot.  The kiddos kept playing until their table ran out of pom-poms and then they put them all back and played again.


I told them if they rolled a number and didn’t have anymore pom-poms left in that color to roll again.  I really wanted them keep playing and to learn to share. 🙂

We played with a dot die so that my kiddos had practice matching quantities on the die to the number on the mat.

I’ve also included mats for:
