*The winner of my “All You Need is Love Giveaway” was Fawn! Congrats!*
This morning I took a trip to the Dollar Store just to peek in and see if I could find any treasures. I was surprised to see so much of the store already stocked with Easter garb.
After my small panic attack subsided, I did find one small section of St. Patrick’s Day items so I “lucked” out! I want to share in case you can use this idea too! If your school has a die cut machine with shamrocks, you could make this with paper too.
I found foam shamrocks to use for a math center and small glitter decorations to use as the manipulatives! I decided to make mixed addition and subtraction problems. Because of the varying levels of mastery in my class, I made a set under 10 and a set above 10. Click below to grab your own recording sheet.
I finished my visual plans for the week!

And remember how the dollar store was stocked with EASTER garb!? Well I couldn’t resist. I picked up some eggs and created some literacy activities. This concept is nothing new. I came across this idea my second year of teaching…(circa 1998 y’all!) Students take an onset and match up the rime by turning half of the egg or they take a rime and turn the onset to create words.
Sorry for being WAY ahead of the calendar on this one. I blame all the stores for forcing me to believe for years that I need to prepare for April during February….
If you need some help coming up with varied onsets and rimes, as well as recording sheets just grab the freebie above.
