New Common Core Products Plus FREEBIES

Hello Friends

It is my official first day of Thanksgiving break!  We have a week off to make new TpT products and blog hop spend time with family and I am so excited.  The husband and I decided a few nights ago that we want to surprise our 2 boys with a trip to Disney World for Christmas (we are famous for taking last minute trips) so I will also be trying to plan a last minute vacation during my time off this week.  Anywho....

I am excited to announce my newest additions to my TpT store.  I finally posted the first of my Common Core Activity Cards for 1st grade in ELA and Math.  I am a huge fan of task cards, but I found that students were getting bored with them quickly.  I was looking for something that could be repeated over and over that students would not get tired of when the plan for this line of products was born.  My plan is to have a set for each subject available for grades 1-6 before the new year.  It is a nearly impossible goal at this time of the year, but I figured a little more stress wouldn't hurt me....or will it?
 The ELA set includes 45 activity cards covering ALL CCSS except for listening and speaking.  The download includes full color cards plus a black and white set for more printing options.

The math set includes 36 cards covering all standards.  All activities can be completed using simple items found in every classroom or home such as paper, pencils, dice, coins, etc...

Be sure to click on any picture above to visit my TpT store to learn more about these products and download the preview to see more detail.  I would love to hear your feedback on this new line of products!  Any comments you leave below will be helpful in making the rest of the grade levels stated earlier. 

Although I am on Thanksgiving break, I realize that some of you are still teaching.  If you haven't seen my newest freebie, check it out below.  It may help you in these last few days before Thanksgiving.

If you are done teaching until after Thanksgiving like me, then you may want this Christmas FREEBIE instead:

If you download a freebie, don't forget to leave feedback.  I appreciate reading everything shared on my products.  It helps me to continue to provide products that are relevant to your needs.
