Feelin’ A Bit Green

Top Of The Morning To You. I can’t believe it is February 29th already and we have not had one snow day. Trust me I am over winter since the pretty spring styles and strappy sandals have hit the department stores. I am ready for a pedicure and a “glow” effect to my skin.

I don’t know what the weather has been like in your neck of the woods,but this winter has been a complete let down. I think I jinxed myself  when I bought ski resort gift cards for the family this Christmas.

Many people have been sending me emails about my St. Patrick’s Day Unit. After having some issues uploading, I finally got this adorable Irish theme unit up!! (Yippee! Just in time for the Leap Day Sale!!)

Shamrock Math & Literacy Centers


There are 20 different activities (10 math & 10 literacy) to keep your little leprechauns out of mischief during center time activities.


  • Pot O’Gold Count: Counting Activity
  • A Kiss for Luck: Before/After Numbers
  • Top of the Morning: Time Analog to Digital

How Do I Love Thee…

I just re-posted my Lots of Love C-V-C Activity this morning and had a request for a similar activity using numbers/number words. Let me introduce my newest freebie using those adorable heart containers from the Target Dollar Spot, Dollar Tree, or Dollar General.


How Do I Love Thee?…Let Me Count The Ways

HowI Love

It is quite simple to put together. Simply print letter tiles onto cardstock and laminate for durability. Label your heart containers A-J. Fill each heart container with one number word.

Place containers in a basket (I found the cutest heart shaped basket at the Dollar Tree.) Print recording sheets- I print mine front/back to save paper. There are enough letter tiles to create several center stations (1-20).

Directions includedhow I loveI


Hugs and Kisses,
