Math Centers Freebie

So I sat down last night and read every single one of your comments. Some of them really hit home and truly touched my heart. Before I share the winner, I would like to share with you my most rewarding aspect of teaching. (actually I have two!)

1. I love to know that my job is making a difference. We are responsible for educating the next generation. We are making a difference in children's lives. Many of my students just want someone to listen to them and care about them. I know some of you work in lower income schools like myself and these kiddo's stories just break your heart. I come to school each day looking to make a difference in one of my kids day, whether that be give them hug, talk with them, or teach them something new. I love teaching and I wouldn't do anything else no matter the amount of money they would offer.

2. Secondly I love teaching because it helps me get all my creative juices out. I have loved to do crafty things since I was little. I never wanted to watch T.V. or play games when I was younger. I would beg my mom to take me to the local craft store so I could buy a craft to make. Well guess what we are still doing that. (We are making really cute bags that I will share later this week) Teaching allows me to be creative and help instill some of that creativity into my students!

There was NOOO way I could just choose 5 winners so.....I am going to give it to everyone for free. Thank you all for making my day and writing such meaning messages!

Thank you SO much! These are fantastic. I love that they are still rigorous, but the kids will think they are fun and cute. The Spring colors are perking me up already!

Thank you so much for sharing !! I love the centres and truly appreciate your talent and generosity. I have taught for 26 years now and am inspired by young teachers like yourself who teach me so many things!! My kids will love these centres !! I will say that one rewarding aspect of teaching (there are so many) is sharing the excitement with my kids over new games and ideas. I always tell them "this is a great idea from a great teacher in _____). Tomorrow we will talk about Kansas :) Some will make the Wizard of Oz connection I am sure ! Thanks so much Kelley.

These are awesome- thanks for sharing! I love the fact that you only need a deck of cards for each one. So much simpler than what I've been doing with hundreds of pieces! Hope you enjoy the rest of your spring break!! :)

This is what I love about blogging, each and everyone one of us love our job. I don't think we would find a blog from a teacher who hates teaching (if you find one, let me know...). Thanks for the freebie and have a blessed weekend.
