Helping Henry and an Update!


I wanted to give y'all an update on Henry!  Since I live across the country, my updates come from Henry's Facebook Page and messages from family and friends.  Henry had physical therapy and speech today. He was apparently exhausted and very grumpy. He started waking up screaming in the middle of the night last night. More signs of his previous infusions wearing off. Poor little guy!    You can stay up to date on his progress and even leave a happy message for hime by going to his facebook page:  Healing4Henry.


And here are more previews of the amazing products available in the Helping Henry Fundraiser Bundle!


Jessica Plemons from Mrs. Plemons' Kindergarten contributed some great activities for your math centers!


Each of the 11 centers includes an "I Can" sheet with picture cues to help students remember what to do. All of the centers are also easily differentiated for the different levels of students in your class. You can use different dice/dominoes/chips, or different sets of the cards that are included. 

Here is what is included:
Spinning Addition
Shaking Addition
Number Bond Sort

Kristina Holst from Madame H contibuted this amazing resource for using Interactive Notebooks!  I don't know about you, but my students love their notebooks!


This is an interactive notebook of even and odd numbers 0-20 for students in kindergarten and first grade. The activities have two options: either a snail as the image or a butterfly as the image. It is important to note that the activities are identical, but the image changes depending on preference. Choose one version and have the entire class complete it, or allow students the choice of a snail or butterfly. The 27 page download includes the following activities:

p. 2: How to Guide

p. 3: Directions for attaching a flap book to a notebook

p. 4: Directions for attaching envelopes to a notebook

p. 5: Flap book for even numbers
