Magnetic Tape

If you follow me on instagram you saw a post I shared yesterday about this amazing magnetic tape I found. 


I had someone tell me to check out a magnetic tape on one of my cookie tray posts. They mentioned that MarDel carries it. I did find some on MarDel here. But I have Amazon Prime so I wanted to check there too. The tape is awesome and PERFECT for quickly setting up cookie tray activities. Now, don't try and use it to hang papers on your fridge-- it's not that strong. You can also tear it really easily too. So when I pull a piece off the dispenser, if it's a little bigger than I need then I tear it in half.


So many of you asked about where to find this amazing stuff. I hope you check out this blog post-- you can get it at MarDel for $5.99 or Amazon for $5.96 (and free shipping if you have a prime account).

IT'S SPRING BREAK! {..and ABC assessment}

Clearly my post title suggests that I am more excited about one of these things. BUT you may be more excited about the other one; ABC Assessment Ring! I really went back and forth over what to include on this ring. Do I split the alphabet in half? Do I include anything with pictures of items? Lowercase? In the end all these questions result in the perfect ring to assess your kiddos on their knowledge of identifying capital letters and lowercase letters.

You could set all of these question sets up on one ring, or divide it into two rings; one assessing capitals and one assessing lowercase letters. Whatever your preference is.



This set also includes two data tracking sheets. One for capitals and one for lowercase letters. If you would like to purchase this set just {click here}. If you already own the bundle you'll want to download the revised version to get this set too. This is the LAST set added to the bundle. You'll save $4.00 by buying the bundle and getting all 5 sets.

What are you doing for Autism Awareness Month?

Did you know April is Autism Awareness Month? To kick it off I'm having a 20% off sale in my entire TpT store April 1st-April4 4th. No, this is not an April fools joke!

I'm also planning on wearing an autism awareness shirt of some kind each school day in April to help spread awareness. That's a lot of shirts! I already have all of these to get me started with some more on the way! 


On April 18th I'm participating in a local Autism Walk that our state does every year to raise money for families affected by autism in the state. All money raised stays right here in Delaware which is awesome. I'm walking with a former student's family and would love for your to check out my fundraising page! :) I'm only $75 away from my fundraising goal.

What's something fun you're doing to help spread awareness or celebrate the month?

Assessment Ring {Numbers 1-30}

Next up in the assessment ring set is a ring for numbers 1-30. If I went to 100 there was no way this would fit on a ring and that would sort of defeat the purpose of it being an assessment ring. If the interest presents itself, I will make "expansion packs" in different number sets to either add to this, or create more rings with.


Numbers 1-30 includes six different question sets to assess your students on with numbers 1-30. The following question sets are included:

1. Naming numbers
2. Identifying numbers from a field of 2
3. Identifying numbers from a field of 3
4. Reading number words
5. Identifying number words from a field of 2
6. Identifying number words from a field of 3



This pack also includes a data tracking sheet as you assess your students on the numbers they know. If you have purchased the assessment bundle already you'll want to download a revised copy so you can get this numbers set at no additional cost.

Bunny Splash Cookie Trays

April cookie trays are here, and a wee bit early for once! I was really torn between whether or not to do a bunny/Easter theme for April or a rain theme. Therefore, Bunny Splash was born! A combination of both bunny/Easter themed activities AND rain themed activities making this a pretty large pack!


I shared in a post {here} how I prep and store my cookie tray packs. I take the cover page and laminate onto a large envelope and store everything inside. You can use this cover page, OR I created two different ones just in case you wanted to split the packs apart by bunny/Easter theme and rain theme.


Check out the images below for preview of the activities included in this month's pack. 




If you would like to purchase Bunny Splash cookie trays just click {here} to go to my TpT Store. They'll be on sale til 5pm EST March 26th!

Next on the list will be a Spring Themed pack for the month of May. Crazy to think I'm almost a years worth of cookie tray activities!
