Jingle Bell Rock

Free...Who doesn't like free?  There is a WONDERFUL resource on Teachers Pay Teachers.  50 pages of wonderful tips and freebies.
These are all from top tpt teacher-sellers.  They are the cream of the crop!  I say that ever so humbly because I am included in this book.  I've already downloaded mine and have been reading and reading and I downloaded the 1-2 book too because I know there are tips in there I can use.

I just found the freebie from Differentiated Kindergarten....Read, Write, Smell.  How fun is that??  Can't wait to add my smelly markers to centers next week.  I am going to rethink how I do five senses at Christmas.  I need to go back and find some more great ideas. 

But first let me share what I offered as my Christmas gift to you....Jingle Bell Rock.
What is more fun than Jingle Bells at Christmas time?  I love to play with missing addends and so do my kiddos.  We take some jingle bells, count them, and then hide some under a cup.  Students need to figure out how many are missing.  I made these recording sheets to help students keep track of their games and the math talk cards to help them remember the words to use.

Have fun!  Merry Christmas!!


  1. hey nice post mehn. I love your style of blogging here. The way you writes reminds me of an equally interesting post that I read some time ago on Daniel Uyi's blog titled Subconscious Attitude That Pushes People Away From You .
    keep up the good work.
