Thankful! Collaboration! Place Value Christmas Resource!

So here it is, November already! Time flies when you are having fun. Really! A couple of weeks ago I was reading blogs and scrolling through my Facebook pages and I noticed one of my fellow bloggers lives only about an hour away from me. I thought, I need to contact her and offer to meet up for lunch. Why not? So, I contacted Fern Smith and asked her if she would like to meet for lunch, and so we set it up to meet at Olive Garden for all you can eat soup, salad, and breadsticks!

I was so excited…quite an adventure for me, because I don’t like to drive into the city and face all the traffic, not to mention the big, tall bridges I had to cross. The big day came, and the Gator and the ‘Nole had lunch together. We talked and shared, and it was a real treat! Time actually flew by, and I hardly even noticed the food…I was just enjoying the conversation so much. So thankful that I took the plunge and had the adventure! The result of it… we decided to collaborate on a Place Value Christmas Resource which I just published. I am really happy with it. This bundle of goodies covers a whole week of Place Value for 1.NBT.B.2, 2.NBT.A.1, and 3.NBT.A.2.  It has two fantastic PowerPoints, a Smartboard file, task cards, center games and printables. I think coming together to create was a great experience and a terrific learning experience and motivator.

A Week’s Worth of Place Value for Christmas for 1.NBT.2, 2.NBT.A.1 and 3.NBT.A.2.


Fern made some absolutely fantastic task cards and 2 PowerPoints that are interactive. Everything has a black and white version in case you can’t print in color!





I added Math Centers and Smartboard Games. I have also made these available separately in my store if you don’t want to buy the bundle. However, the bundle is your best deal. Actually, a steal!

What a fun and productive meeting! I think we will get together again in the future, and when we do, we will have to take a photo of the Gator and the ‘Nole together! :)


I am so thankful for everything that has happened to me this year. I can’t express how blessed we have been. Miracles have been happening in my life that I never thought possible. I so enjoyed going to the TPT conference in Las Vegas, being in Seattle for the birth of my grandson, being to help people in ways I never dreamed of…2014 has been a year to count blessings, and my cup overflows!



So, I would like to share with you some Thanksgiving freebies…I know it is a little late, but these can even be used to keep the kids busy while you are cooking the bird!
