"Egg"Citing Fun and A Sale

Today has been one of those days friends.  I took my oldest daughter to the CVS Minute Clinic this morning for a sore throat (thinking I'd only be an hour late to school) and ended up being sent to have her foot x-rayed.  A foot she hurt over a week ago at gymnastics that she told NO ONE about! A hurt foot she's been practicing on everyday for 3 hours or longer!  And yes I got the LOOK! You know the one where they're not sure whether to call DSS because they think you're lying and that there's no way any decent parent would not know their child's foot was swollen and black and blue. After a 2 1/2 hour wait for the doctor to read the x-rays and then the radiologist to read the x-rays we finally found out that it's just a bad sprain which is good news considering her state meet is this Sunday. Needless to say I never made it to school today which stinks because I LOVE me some Fridays with my sweetiesIt's like the day I halfway feel like I'm able to catch my breath and just let them have fun being kiddos.  I know they still had fun with my assistant.  I'm just the one who missed out on it:(  Is that enough of the pity party or should I keep going?  

Here's a cheap little math activity you can put together easily.  I picked up the little bunny basket and egg tray at Dollar Tree for $1 each.  The tray holds 15 eggs.  This activity is really for a few of my 4K students that are still working on identifying numbers and counting out the quantity to correspond to the numeral.  I show them an egg card.  They have to read the number and count out that many eggs onto the tray. 

You can print the egg number cards here or by clicking the pic below.

 I went back and have added several things to my Hippity, Hoppity, Easter's On Its Way Unit.  This little chick craft is one thing that has been added.  The wing is too low in this one and it's looking a little duckish.  My OCD is telling me that's going to have to be fixed.  My tired brain is saying, "Not tonight."  Wonder which will win out??
You can get the unit by clicking the link above or the picture below.  The price did go up but it's on sale through Sunday if you want to grab it for $3.80.  Actually my entire store is 20% off right now PLUS whenever you buy 1 item you get one that's equal or less for FREE.  All you have to do is email me the item you purchased, the date (must be between now and Sunday thru 11:59 pm.), your username on TPT (so I can verify you purchased an item) and the FREE item you'd like. Those of you that already purchased can redownload to get all the newbies that have been added.

  1. What a fun way to practice numbers and quantities! I still have 2 kiddos who will greatly benefit from this. Thanks so much for sharing! :) Hope your daughter's foot heals quickly!
