The Best Things in Life are Free

In celebration of this glorious 4-day holiday weekend and to show how thankful I am for the TPT community, I've uploaded two new (temporary) freebies available in my TPT store.

The first one is called Part Part Touchdown!  I saw this football chips and dip tray at The Dollar Tree and knew I had to use it for something in my classroom.  Right now we are working on our fluency with addition and subtraction, so this activity is great for when your students are ready for part-part-whole relationships.

The next freebie I've posted follows the learning sequence for addition and subtraction fluency.  After our kids demonstrate understanding of how addition and subtraction are related, they practice balancing equations by applying their knowledge of those operations.  I love this activity because students can hands-on manipulate the equal sign and the equations.


Okay, okay, I have one last free thing to share with you!  One of my teacher friends is a Stella & Dot jewelry stylist and she is OBSESSED with sparkle.  I hosted a Stella party last week and surprised her by creating this paper banner!
This is the Havana Pendant necklace; my favorite Stella & Dot piece!
It's currently on sale for $50!  (Originally $89)

I only need $80 in purchases to reach my party's goal, and luckily my virtual party is still open until November 28th.  I am offering a free custom banner to anyone who makes a Stella & Dot purchase through my link.  If you made a purchase through my link, please leave a comment below with your name and email address so I that I can e-mail you to get details on your banner! 

So, what do you think?  The best things in life are free, right?  This year I am especially thankful for my friends and family who've been there to hear my never ending rants and take care of me when I'm down ...and hungry.  I am also thankful for the Dunkin' Donuts app because well, it's free too.  And it blesses me with many free iced coffees which have gotten me through countless Mondays and Fridays.  And most of all the other days in between.  :) 

Until next time,
