Valentine's Day Math for pre-k and kindergarten - Updated!

Hey everyone!

Hope your days are less cold, although everyone likes a snow day!

I've got some TpT related news. I recently updated this Valentine's math pack, which I made last year. I changed the printables to make them more ink friendly, so they are now ready to print and go! Plus I added 10 more pages of math activities. 

It also has a new cover with new awesome graphics (..I love these things!)

This is for early learners and it is aligned to the following kindergarten common core standards:
- K.CC.B.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
- K.OA.A.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.

Christmas 2013@Home!

Hey everyone!
Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas and a great winter break! Teachers deserve a good rest and some fun before going back to class so..recharge your batteries!!

This year, we are spending our holidays at home with family and friends. So far, we are having a blast!

We chose a white Christmas tree and decorated it with blue and silver ornaments. 
(Background painting: We are obviously fans of Gustav Klimt's art! Hehe!)





One of our good friends, who knows a lot about sewing, brought us some custom made ornaments which I LOVED! I went crazy when I saw them!

One for us:






                                One for our female spaniel Joy - love the little bone shape!



And one for our male spaniel Danni! 
I guess it's obvious we love our fur kids!



Here they are all dolled up and ready for winter! :D



My friend's lovely knitting blog!  Dizzy Button

I hope you are having a great time this Christmas on your winter break too!

I am getting to something teaching related! Last year, I prepared this New Year's social studies-history unit for children in pre-k, kindergarten and first grade. The pack includes ELA and math worksheets plus craftivities to help the little ones understand the concept of the year changing. I will soon be updating this with a lot of new activities.

A preview of the unit:

That's it from us!
