Math Game Monday, Manic Monday, Currently, and You Know It's Summer When....


Happy Monday on my first official week of Summer Vacay!!!

For those of you who are already chilling with me, isn't is great?

For those of you who are still chugging away, remember you'll still be at home when the rest of us have to return to school!

As I'm still playing a bit of the catch-up game, I haven't created a new math game freebie for this week, so I'm recycling an older post that some of you probably haven't seen yet.

Also, I originally created today's product as a partner picking idea, but it works just as awesomely great as a memory or concentration matching game.


Click on the image below to go to the Free Stuff! Page on my blog!  This will be the 5th thing down under Math.

Feel free to grab anything else you like while you're there!  :)



I'm linking up with Manic Monday on Classroom Freebies again this week!  You can head over there by clicking the image below to find lots more great freebies as well.

And of course it wouldn't be the beginning of a new month without Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade's Currently!  Click the link to go check out her awesome new blog design!




Oh my goodness, there's been so much fun stuff going on in the blogging world that I just have to go ahead and include one more link up in this post!  {I've got to get caught up somehow.}

Jennie, who also has an adorable new blog design, from Kindergarten Lifestyle is hosting a link up called You Know It's Summer Vacation When....so I just couldn't resist creating a few images of my own!  Head to her blog to grab the blank image and read the rules of the party!

Here are my ideas:






OK, OK...I'll stop there for now!  Be sure to go check out these great blogs and super-sweet bloggers!


Enjoy :)

    1. LOL Elizabeth! I could probably get rich quick if I could figure out a secret formula for that! :)

  3. I stayed in my jammies for most of today cleaning my house! Just curious what type of program do you use to make your games?

    1. Oh, jammie days are the best!

      I usually make them in PowerPoint. It's so much easier than fighting with the formatting in Word.

      Thanks for coming by...and the question. :)

  4. I love being able to stay up late reading a good book! Not having to get up the next morning is just as good!

  5. I was unable to download your Freebies at Scribd. I have an account, but they still want me to pay to download your items. Any advice?

    1. Uh oh! That's not good...thanks for letting me know. Sometimes Scibd. seems very touchy.

      Here is a link to the freebie at my TPT Store: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Partner-Picking-Cards-Middle-Grades-Math

      Here is the link to Goodle Docs: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B9l_fDJQjIqdNlQtUHlidFlvSGs

      IF neither of those work, let me know and I'll email it to you. :)

    1. I am SOOOO a font addict, too! The font I used is called Jaggy Fries. Most of my fonts come from dafont.com, but I can't say with 100% certainty. You should be able to google it. :)

      Thanks for stopping by, Laura!
