Jungle Learners Product Swap

One of my most favorite things about finally taking the leap and creating my own blog is getting closer to all the amazing teachers/blog authors out there!  When I saw the opportunity to be a part of this product swap I jumped on board!  A big thank-you to Melissa at Jungle Learners for hosting!  Click the image below to go back to her page!
My swap partner was Beth from Taming My Flock of Firsties!  Click her button to visit her blog!
Taming My Flock of Firsties
I asked Beth some questions to get to know one another and I was surprised at how similar we are!  I would have picked those exact same 5 words for me!  Read below to learn more about Beth!

How did you get into teaching and when/how did you make the decision to be a teacher?
Beth: "I have always wanted to be a teacher.  My aunt was my biggest influence.  She started teaching the  year I was born and retired the year I began. :)  I remember going into her classroom in August to set up.  There is nothing like the smell of a fresh classroom in August.  There was no other decision for me."

What is your favorite thing to teach and why?
Beth: "I love to teach reading.  When those eyes brighten when my firsties figure out a word...priceless."

Describe your personality with 5 words?
Spunky, Creative, Fun, Caring, and Energetic

I was happy to try out an activity from her It's Still Winter Math Common Core Pack!  
It was actually our 100th day of school this past week so her hidden penguin guessing game was perfect for a fun math game to integrate 100!
This pack covers so many common core standards and I love how it can be used for your highest kids and the low ones too!  Another benefit was a lot of the activities went to 120 rather than just 100!  Included in the pack are activities to practice comparing numbers with < , >, and = , deciding if equations are true or false, working on place value with tens and ones, measuring, and time!  It has everything you need to review a ton of math concepts in a fun, winter way!

The BEST part is we are giving away this amazing pack - just enter the rafflecopter below!

If you have time please head on over to her blog to enter for a chance to win my Common and Proper Noun PPT and Printables!  It will be on sale for $2.00 until Tuesday, Feb. 3rd!!
