Monday Made It, Freebie and a Giveaway!

Happy Monday!  I'm glad you are here because I have some VERY exciting news! If you checked in with me on Friday, you probably know that I recently purchased the program I had been using on my Fiance's computer to create products.  This is super exciting because now I don't have to wait to post products until the weekend anymore AND I can share them with you immediately! YAY! 

This weekend I posted two BRAND NEW products! I have my First and Second grade Dolch Sight word BANG games into on GIANT K-2 Bundle! If that isn't enough, I have also included and EDITABLE version of this bundle so you are able to add any other words you may need! HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!?!?!

I also have a brand new FREEBIE that is just a little taste of an awesome package that will be coming your way soon! 

"TAP IT OUT" is an addition strategy I developed in my classroom to help my firsties that are still using all of their fingers and toes to complete basic addition problems.  The idea is fairly simple, but the outcome is amazing! Students use their "TAP" button to represent the larger numbers they have in addition and subtraction problems. Students "TAP" their button while they say the larger number from a problem which then leaves their little fingers open to count and represent the smaller number from the problem.  My students have LOVED using their buttons and I have LOVED seeing their confidence grow! Like I said, this is a trial run of what is to come, so please leave feedback so I can make sure my package is perfect! 

Phew! Now......

I know that those products may have made you excited but, hold on to your hats ladies and gents, that isn't even the most EXCITING news I have for you! 

DRUMROLL please.........

A New Box of Crayons is officially on Facebook and to get things rolling I'm having a Facebook Follower Giveaway! One winner will receive my BRAND NEW K-2 Dolch Sight word bundle just for following my TPT store, Facebook and leaving a comment on this blog! How easy is that?! Hurry, the giveaway ends this Friday!

I wish you the best of luck! 

I hope you have a wonderful week! 

Thanks for stoppin' by! 


  1. I tried your TAP it out with a few of my struggles in math. They really seemed to enjoy it. I am thinking about making that skill into an anchor chart for them to refer back to. Hope they just remember to do it :)
    Thanks for the great idea!

  2. Thanks for the giveaway and the freebie!
