Free Mystery Pictures & Shabby Sale!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  It feels like a great time for a new, Freebie, don't you think?  I had a couple of these types of mystery pictures from my student teaching days (thanks, Becky!) and my students love to work on them.  It's a great way for them to practice number recognition, as well as other Common Core standards.  (Hello, adding ten and place value!)  Here is a peak at what the packet looks like:  Go here to download the entire thing for FREE!

I have included the basic set of directions, but I like to give the students other hints while we do these in class.  Here are some ways that I give hints.  
  • Color the number that comes after ____.
  • Color the number that is one less than ____.
  • Color the number that is 10 more/less than ____.
  • Color the number that is between ____ and ____.
  • ____+_____= the number you should color. (especially with facts we're working on at the time)
  • Color the number that has a ___ in the tens place, and ____ in the ones place.
I hope to make the packet bigger later on and include some of these ways of giving hints.  I always do these as a whole group activity and normally I pull up a blank 120 sheet and we color along on the SmartBoard.  This really helps the visual learners.  
I like to make the students fill out a blank 120 chart the day before we do this activity- it's a great way to kill two birds, so to speak.  Let me know if you enjoy them!  


Also, if you enjoy the Shabby Apple I have a great coupon code for you- 10% off any purchase!  Yay! If you haven't heard of them, you should check them out!  Just look at these adorable styles- I want them all.  
I especially love the beachcomber and the Harlem Moves necklace.  You can save with this code: favorite10.  

But hurry... it's only good until September 14.  Happy shopping.  If you purchase anything be sure to share pictures with me- I can't wait to get some stuff!

  4. If a MLM student loan system passes the 70% rule.
    Essentially, you devote what you want to open and standard
    of service they have. Most student loan for start-up efforts center on creating a buzz or attracting the attention of the people you're speaking with. People who provide their mail id are obviously interested in the product you are promoting yourself through Wikipedia, you are furthering your relationship whilst promoting your business but you have to offer.

    Look into my site :: The Student Loan People
