Last night I stopped at the Dollar General before going into school and I found some good deals. Of course I had to make something to go along with them...
First up, this squiggle book for 50 cents...it gets better, it was 30% off at the register!
I have used squiggle as a center for all of my teaching years and it is still one of my kiddos favorites! For those who don't know what squiggle is, you start with a squiggle or a doodle and the students have to finish the doodle and make it into something. Then when they are finished with their drawing, they write a story about it.
After many years of using the same boring sheet I thought it is time to spruce it up. Then I decided to share it with everyone and make it a freebie in Spanish or English!
What I think I am going to do is cut the squiggles from the book and glue them on these pages. I might just handwrite the squiggles, too. I am super excited about this -- it is about time I updated my squiggle page!
Then I found these sequencing puzzles for $1. There are 8 different puzzles in the pack -- they are kind of flimsy, but not bad for a $1.
The puzzles would be nice as a center, but I wanted to have a writing accountability piece to them too, so I created these sheets. I originally just made the one sheet for my students (using the words I know they need), but when I decided to offer it as a freebie, I thought about the different levels (kindergarten to third grade) that might want it, so I tried to level the worksheets.
So that's all I've got for now. I am working really hard on some cool math stuff to share with you all, I am very excited! School is getting closer...18 days until teachers go back!
