***SALE EXTENDED THROUGH TUESDAY, 2/19/18***
Hi there and thanks so much for joining my President’s Day Bonanza! I originally shared this exclusive Bonanza over at my Little Minds at Work Facebook Group page! Come join us over there if you haven’t already! You can join us **HERE**
Okay let’s get into the fun stuff now! This is a one-day sale! The items below are all back at their original TpT “buy-in prices”. What is a buy-in price? A buy-in price is the original price I place NEW packets for! These special prices are usually for just a week or so! However, the special prices are BAAAACK! Just a reminder that these special prices are for
February 18th only! **SALE EXTENDED THROUGH TUESDAY, 2/19/18***
They are valid through 11:59 PST. This will give all time zones the equal amount of shop time! We all need plenty of shopping time!
Let’s get into the deals already!!!
Up first are my Aligned Center Mats for K-2! Each of these packets are 100% aligned to their corresponding math curriculum (KinderMath, FirstieMath, Second Grade Math). If you use one of those programs you will be able to use these differentiated center mats along with the curriculum! The lesson numbers match up to the curriculum! The mats are offered for below levels and above levels! If you don’t use my math programs these mats still work for you, too! Each and every skill can be found in the TpT description!
The centers are extremely easy to prep. You will simply print the center mats and place them into dry erase pouches, sheet protectors or laminate. The centers take NO color ink and require NO cutting. The students will simply need a copy of the task printed out and simple classroom manipulatives. The activities can be used during your whole-group math lesson as the follow-up task, intervention block, or for independent practice during a small-group math lesson rotation.
Check them out here:
The INSTANT Writing Center is a hands-on and engaging monthly writing center in one packet. Each monthly packet covers ten themes. The themes can be interchanged between any months. The themes are independent of one another and can be swapped to fit your needs.
Each theme has 6 word cards for a total of 60 word cards per monthly packet. The cards can be displayed for students to access. Along with the word cards, each theme comes with five activities. The five activities are repeated for every theme so that the task only has to be taught once. The monthly packets also include a center display sign, activity posters and organization labels. Months August through July are included! That’s a total of 110 themes (MORE than you could ever need).

Kindergarten Guided Math units are teacher-created, kid-tested, and most importantly kid-approved! Kindergarten Guided Math takes away that monotonous way of teaching math where students sit and listen to the teacher TEACH math. Instead, Kindergarten Guided Math encourages guidance from the teacher while the students TEACH and LEARN math through hands-on and engaging math activities with their partners.
Kindergarten Guided Math units are made up of 10 instructional days each, but can be adjusted to fit your classroom needs. The units include assessment pieces as a way to ensure student growth over the unit. These are just a few highlights you’ll see using the Kindergarten Guided Math Units; kids talking about math, kids using manipulatives, activities that are fun + engaging, learning that requires critical thinking!
Kindergarten Guided Math curriculum is a 35 week math curriculum that includes lesson plans that break down a 45 minute block math time. The units will also include any and all cards needed to make the lessons successful! You will just need to provide the manipulatives like teddy bears or cubes!
Kindergarten Guided Math is a simple print and teach math curriculum. No more tracking down ideas, worksheets, cards, etc! I have it covered!
