Flash Freebie!

I have 20 more followers to get to 300...if you want to join in on the fun and donate something....it would be greatly appreciated.  Just fill out the form at the bottom of this post.  By donating it will also take people who are entering the giveaway to your blog and TpT store so you will have new followers as well...it's a win/win situation.  And I almost forgot...just for donating I would like you to email me or leave me a comment telling me which product you would like (for free) from my store.  That's my thank you for helping me out and helping me survive this tough year!  Now for the FLASH FREEBIE!

I have made two new products in the last few days.  I had a little stay for a few days after school got out for a hypertensive crisis (super high uncontrolled blood pressure) so I was REALLY bored and I started three fun units and finished them yesterday and today.  The first one is my Chevron M.A.T.H Workshop Board & How to Get Started Pack.  

**5 FREE ANCHOR CHARTS (I-CHARTS) IN PREVIEW)**

This is probably one of my favorite products yet! It was fun to make, it's functional, you can easily differentiate, and it's adorable....I hope you like it as much as I do. 

M.A.T.H Workshop includes these four stations:

M=Math Facts
A=At Your Seat
T=Teacher Choice (I usually do guided math groups but you 
can make it work for you)
H=Hands On

Make sure to check out the PREVIEW of this product! It really shows you a snapshot of what the M.A.T.H Workshop Board will look like as well as gives you a glimpse of the organizational and startup tips. And.....it includes FIVE FREE I-CHART POSTERS! I run my M.A.T.H Workshop like my Daily 5 so I (Independent) Charts are a must. One of the free charts is a Clean Up Routine I-Chart.







This unit includes:
-everything you need for your M.A.T.H Workshop board. All you need to do is copy, cut, laminate, and hang up...no pocket charts or anything to buy...it's all included here.
-sample board so you know exactly how to set it up-
-pictures of a M.A.T.H Workshop board all set up-
-organizing your materials-
-ideas for activities to use for each work station-
-directions on how to get it started and how students know what to do during each station (it runs so smoothly...you'll be amazed)-
-how to set up groups using formative assessments-
-teacher choice station gives you the option of differentiating and running a Guided Math Group-
-I-CHARTS for each station (creates independence in students)-
-an I-CHART for the Clean Up Routine after each station-
-weekly M.A.T.H organizing template (CCSS included)-

Please see the preview and get your freebie I-Charts. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions or possible suggestions for another theme besides chevron...I'd be glad to try to make it for you if possible.

My second product is a Chalkboard Inspired Classroom Posters Pack.


This classroom poster pack includes....
-Alphabet posters in print with lines and adorable pictures to go with each letter (includes upper and lower case)-
-Alphabet posters in cursive with lines and adorable pictures to go with each letter (includes upper and lower case)-
-Numbers 1-20 posters with ten frames-
-Shape posters (shapes included are....square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, circle, oval, pentagon, hexagon, trapezoid, triangle, and octagon)-
-Welcome to.......kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, and 5th Grade Banner (Bunting)-
-A-Z word wall headers with blanks for your choice-

I hope you enjoy this product! Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions....I'd be happy to help you.

Finally my third product!  I've really been into chalkboard prints and frames lately so this is another chalkboard product.
