Cheers to a new Year!!

Christmas is over... New Years is over... It's 2013.... NOW WHAT?!? My resolution this year is to focus on myself! I accomplished last years resolution to get into "kick butt" shape. This year, I want to focus on relaxation, success and happiness. :) I am going to try to limit my stress load (if that's possible). I feel like wrinkles are starting to show up a lot earlier than they should!!!

After fighting the crowds for last minute Christmas gifts, and spending time with my family during the holidays, I decided to squeeze some time in to work on some projects. During the month of January I love to focus on winter activities, one of my favorite units is "The Mitten", it is going to be a lot different this year in second grade than it is in Kindergarten. I pulled out my Kindergarten folders and found some math centers that I have made in the past. Since I can't use them now, I figured other people might be able to!

This is a 63 page Kindergarten math unit!! It is aligned to the Kindergarten Common Core Standards. Take a peek of it at my TpTstore 

There are 8 pages in both color and black and white where students will match the numbers 1-20 to the number word.

There are 20 pages full of green and pink mittens to laminate and use for math centers. These cards focus on number sense and the numbers 1-20. Students will count the number of mittens on each card. 

There are 20 pages full of green and pink mittens with numbers 1-20 and the number words. Laminate, cut and use for math centers. Students can match the numerals to the number words. 

Complete the pattern worksheets! There are 2 colored copies and one black and white copy in which students can complete each pattern. 

And for second grade I created a 12 page literacy pack to go with "The Mitten". This unit contains worksheets for problem/solution, noun sort, compare and contrast, sequencing and a story map.

Since it is almost 10pm, I should probably get a head start on my New Year's resolution and kick into full relaxation mode! Hope everyone had a safe and happy New Years!! :)
