Mad Monday Maths & 2 Freebies

… or at least that’s what I’d call it if I’d had my class today (and not a Curriculum Day).

I humbly bring you a new product and a freebie to match.

Purchase on TeachersPayTeachers or TeachersNotebook

For those of you who are not familiar with the BUMP games – they’re simply an addition game using 2 dice to find a total. Students cover up the total on the board with a counter. If their partner also rolls that number they can BUMP the person off!

Great addition practise for young students.

This pack features 7 themed BUMP boards – veggie garden, garden insects, rainbows, Autumn leaves, pumpkin patches, Easter and owls. (All, save for the owls, have a blackline version included.)

The first 2 people to leave a comment with their favourite Maths game will get a free copy of this pack! (Don’t forget to leave your email address!)

Tomorrow is the Melbourne Cup (hooray for public holidays for horse races!), and to celebrate with my students we’ll be designing names for race horses, designing jockey jumpers, and writing about the long weekend (my kiddos will have had 4 days off!) on Cup-inspired paper. Click here (or on the pic above) to download this freebie!

New Halloween activities + Freebie

It’s been a little while since I updated the blog… and I’m planning on doing a better job. I even have a planned list of things to post on different days. So, I’m going to keep my fingers crossed and do the best I can!

Since my last post, when I first opened a TeachersPayTeachers store, I have also started a TeachersNotebook store, which will (eventually) host the same freebies and activities for purchase. It’s a slow process, but I do love making resources and I’m hoping to have the opportunity to make some more in the near future.

However, I do have 2 new activities listed in my TpT store – a literacy and a numeracy resource!

Purchase on TpT and Teachers Notebook (coming soon).

This little resource is a number-match activity where students can match the numeral, number word and images to practise numbers 1-20. It has a very cute ghostly/halloween feel, thanks to Graphics from the Pond’s fab Little Friendly Ghost clipart. See a sample below!

My second product for sale is Boo to You – an ‘oo’ sound game.

Purchase on TpT or Teachers Notebook

 Students make their way around the board by correctly reading ‘oo’ words and high frequency words.

And now for a


(Because that’s how I roll…)

I’m joining the Manic Monday at Classroom Freebies link-up!

Download a free sample of my Ghostly Number Match (with numbers 1-5) by clicking on the image above or by clicking here. I hope you enjoy it!

Don’t forget to visit the link-up and check out other great freebies (and don’t forget to leave comments!).
