New Activities and a {GREAT} DOLLAR DEAL!

I've added a few new things to my store tonight:
(Click on the pictures to see more)

 First is this great math activity called "Counting On" because its all about counting on :)  Students will start with a number (up to 120) and count on by adding the number cards to the number strip.

 Next, I already have this Read It, Build It, Write It Spelling activity in my store for Reading Street, but I had a request to make one for the StoryTown series by Harcourt.  I have this available in the individual book units (1-5) or you can save a LOT when purchasing the BUNDLE .....and have Word Work for the ENTIRE school year!


This was another request, I have several POP! games/activities in my store, but I was asked to make one for math facts.  Here it is:

I love this activity to use as a literacy center, earlier finisher activity, whole group time filler (just stick one of the cards under the document camera and have a contest to see who can get the most words in a certain amount of time):

Another request here....I have Monster Math Match 1-10 in my store already, but was asked to make a "sequel".  This kit covers 11-20!  I also have both kits together in a money saving BUNDLE!

And last, I have a new DOLLAR DEAL. (You can see all of my Dollar Deals by clicking here.)
This is a set of punctuation clip cards.  It includes 24 clip cards, a follow-up worksheet/recording sheet and answer key:

That's all for now!

CINDERELLA is HERE! Introducing Three New Sight Word Games and more new SIGHT WORD resources!

I've just added three new sight word games to my store at Teachers Pay Teachers!  I'm so excited about the new Cinderella movie coming out, so I couldn't wait to make this first kit!  Click on the pictures or click here to see more about this Cinderella Sight Words Game!

I also have two new sports-themed sight word games!  Soccer and Basketball.  Click on the pictures to check those out too!!!


Another fun literacy center/word work idea is Laptop Sight Words:

This is a fun, file folder activity,  Just print the laptop "monitor" and "keyboard" and adhere to them to the inside of a file folder.  I also printed the directions and put them on the front of the folder.  Once you've done that, just laminate the whole folder.  There are additional "screen" pages that you will print with all 220 sight words.  I used Velcro on the "screens" to adhere them to the "monitor".  Students will choose a sight words screen and stick it to monitor, they will then TYPE the words on the keyboard and then write them on the space below the keyboard.  Since the folder is laminated, you can use a dry erase maker to write the words and then wipe them off.  

More Sight Word Resources (!) that were recently added to my store are:

These are available in a BUNDLE (which saves a TON of $) or separate kits for Pre-Primer, Primer, First Grade, Second Grade, and Third Grade sight words.  These not only provide sight word practice for each sight word by reading the word, tracing the word, writing the word, coloring the word and then reading the word in a sentence, BUT, they words are made into little booklets, that students will keep and continue using to practice reading the words and sentences.

 Whew..... a lot of new stuff, and I didn't even mention these:
