Hey friends! I love those cheapO plastic eggs that are everywhere right now. Lately, I've been trying to brainstorm ways to use them that I've never used before. Here's what I came up with...... This math center is called "EGGcellent Number Match"! My spring sweeties will match the number clues to the correct number. To make this for your class, you'll need 10 plastic eggs. I would make sure to have some of the same color to make it more challenging. All you do is write a number (I use a paint pen)on the smallest side of the egg and the clues on the largest. Break them apart, put them in a basket, and you're ready to go!! I used a variety of different clues for my eggs.

Here is recording sheet that goes with this fun activity. Just click on the picture to download it!

This literacy center is called "Eggtraordinary Endings" and focuses on making words with inflectional endings. To make this center, you will need 10 plastic eggs. Write a root word on the largest side and an inflectional ending on the other smaller side.Break them apart, put them in a basket, and your students can have a blast making words.

Here is a recording sheet you can use with this center! Click on the picture to download it!!

Hope you enjoy these activities!!!! Don't forget to enter the "Spring Themed Fun" contest if you haven't already!!! Only two days left before the winners are announced!!!Happy Friday Eve!!!!

Goal Setting

Hey Blogger Friends! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday evening. I have a little free time since my little man decided to crash at 6:00!! Poor little boy has a stomach bug:(

I am so excited to have 200 followers!!! Wooooohooooo!!! Thank y'all so much for being a part of my blog!!! Make sure to enter into the "Spring Theme Fun" contest that I'm hosting with Erica Bohrer!!! The contest ends on Saturday, April 9th at midnight. You have 5 chances to win on both blogs!!!

Now onto goal setting!! It's a huge focus at my school. I have seen the wonderful benefits of it in my classroom. It's a life skill that your kiddos will always use! At the beginning of each week, I pass out a behavior and learning goal sheet for my little goal setters to complete. Then they take it home to share with their family. When they bring their goal sheet back to school, you can either display them in your classroom or have them keep it in a safe place! At the end of the week, we discuss whether they met their goal or need to continue working towards it during the following week!

I just gave my learning and behavior goal sheet a much needed makeover and wanted to share it with you. You can click on the picture to download it. It's very simple, but I wanted to keep it short and sweet!!!

FYI- Teachers pay Teachers is giving everyone 10% off of their purchases through April 9th with the coupon code A3F9D. Stop by my store, as well as others to take advantage of this awesome discount!!! I should be done with my "Fun in the Sun Math and Literacy Center Packet" in a few days:) It will include 10 centers that are full of sunshine!!!

I'm finally on Spring Break!! YAY!!! Most of it will be dedicated to grad school work, but I'm okay with not having to juggle it with a full-time job for a week!!! Exciting, huh?!?!?

Hope you have a GREAT week!!!
