CrAzY Mistake!

I was lying in bed tonight, almost asleep, when I realized one of our newest creations had mistakes! I was instantly awake and knew that I had to fix it immediately! Do you ever feel like you are passing yourself going every which way? That is how I feel these days! Anywho, all the 2 dice pages did not have all the possible number choices listed. I have no clue what I was thinking but I was clearly wrong! So if you purchased this file from us, please go back to TpT or TN and download the revised file. Because I am CrAzY sorry for the goof, if you purchased this item I will give you one free item from our store as my way to make it up to you. Just email your selection to Thanks for understanding!

I Smell Cinammon!!

This time of year is SO fun!  To inspire these children that we have for 8 hours a day is a huge obligation.  It's Gingerbread time!!  These little gingerbread activities will do the trick- the clipart is precious and the activities are CrAzY fun!  We hope this takes a little less time out of your planning time so you can have a little more time to have fun with your kids this holiday season!!

That CrAzY Elf!

Last year at the last minute I decided to buy an Elf on the Shelf. My girls are 17 and 21 so I was missing those fun activities you can do when they are younger. I was wishing I could do it when I thought of my school kids! I was so excited! Since it was last minute I just kinda winged it! Well, this year I wanted to do it for a longer period of time and better! This packet was created to make the best of this CrAzY elf! I am excited for him to visit us soon! We hope you enjoy this packet! Click on the picture above and it will take you straight to our TpT store. As always, it is also available on TN. Get it now while the sales are still going strong!

Roll and Cover boards---for an entire year!

We love centers that you can teach the kids one time and then rotate in and out throughout the year. Our kids are CrAzY for these Roll and Cover boards. We have used them for years but as Roll and Color. This year we decided to try and cut down on the amount of paper we use and turned the Roll and Color into Roll and Cover. This way they can be included in a center and reused over and over again.

Included are 69 boards using 1 dice and 69 boards using 2 dice.
We used a variety of clip art that can be used during all holidays, events and even generic ones that can be used any time during the year.

Here is how this works: We recommend you print on card stock and laminate for durability. Students may use any variety of counters. We prefer to use small round discs. Students will roll the dice (or 2) and count the dots. Counter will be placed over number. Keep playing until all numbers are covered. They can also be copied and student can color the circles when the number is rolled if you prefer Roll and Color.

Students can easily determine how many dice are needed based on the dice picture on the upper right hand corner. Click on one of the pics below to go straight to our stores.

CrAzY fun puzzles!

We are glad to be back to creating and blogging. We have missed it a lot! Our latest product is CVC puzzles. The idea came when we were sitting at a training last week. We decided to take 2 different fun ideas and put them together into one activity. There are 12 pictures that you will cut apart on the lines. Mix them all up into one bag. The students will unscramble the pieces and record, either by writing or using letters tiles, onto the recording sheets. 12 of the puzzles have letter support at the bottom of the pieces. The other 12 puzzles do not have that support. We modeled the recording sheets after sound boxes that our district likes us to you. It allows the students to see how many sounds are in the word.

We hope you enjoy this latest product. It is available on TN and TpT. Thanks for sticking with us while we get our-CrAzY-selves together!

We have been CrAzY!

Sheesh! It has been almost 2 months since our last post! Let me tell you, it has been 2 CrAzY months. We have missed blogging and creating things for our classroom to share with you. Man, we had a tough start to our year but have finally got it under control...for now!

We just wanted you to know we haven't disappeared and are working on LOTS of CrAzY fun things to share soon.  Here are a few of our favorite e-cards to give you a chuckle on this Saturday!
