400 Follower Giveaway!

YAY!  I got there!  Thanks so much to those of you who are following along with me as I am slowly learning this blogging process.  When I first started blogging this summer, one of my posts was about my favorite things.  Here is one of those products. Math Minutes by Creative Teaching Press.  You can click the image to go to their store.  


Math Minutes are an excellent supplement to any math curriculum.  I use them as a "warm-up" before my daily lesson.  I like them because I am giving my students a variety of math questions.  While there are some things on them that we haven't got to in our curriculum, it opens up discussion.  I have found that when it does come up in the curriculum, students are familiar with the concept, making it easier to teach the skill.  I have used them for the past 5 years for both my 1st and 2nd grade classes.  (I even own them in 3rd and 4th grade.)  My students will ask me, "Are we doing a Math Minute today?" Then they get excited when they get passed out.  They love them as much as I do.  You get 100 AWESOME minutes with 10 different questions on each page.  The minutes are designed in which the skills vary from reading and writing the number word to working on adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers without regrouping. There are a variety of ways you can use them, but however you choose, they are a great tool to help familiarize students with questions they may end up seeing on state assessments.

Here's the cool thing---I am giving away this AWESOME product as an e-book.  You have 3 ways to enter.  Each time you enter, be sure to leave your email address as Creative Teaching Press will email you the product directly.


1) Follow my blog, and leave a comment.  
2) Like Creative Teaching Press on Facebook and then leave a comment. 
3) Like First Grade and Fabulous on Facebook and then leave a comment.

That simple, but do it quickly though.  Giveaway will expire Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. EST.  Seriously though, this is an awesome product.  I'm not joking when I say my students get excited when we do them.....and disappointed if I don't do them.

Now, how about a freebie just for reading my post today? I wanted to do a simple sort without getting into a lot of heavy information on Lincoln and Washington.  Here's what I came up with.


Hope someone is able to use it!!  Have a happy Sunday! :)

  65. I am now a follower of your blog! I found you through Classroom Freebies when I saw you were offering an ea and ee sort. I'm student teaching and am focusing on ea and ee this week too! I made up the following poem to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat:

    Mr. Green From Peach Street

    Smell, smell, smell my feet.
    And dance to the rhythm of the beat.

    Pet my sheep and leave my room neat.
    Remember to eat a yummy treat.

    I know it's super goofy but the kids always love silly stuff!
