Deirdre over at A Burst of First, organized an awesome New England meet up at The Cheesecake Factory in Boston. I had the pleasure of meeting some awesome ladies (and one hubby)! We had a great time.
I spent most of today busy updating some of my work...and working on something new!
If you purchased my Valentine's Day Count the Room packet, please go back and download the latest version. I added some new clip art and made it look a little nicer.

On Friday, I introduced my kiddos to one of my very favorite games, KABOOM! It's a simple game really...place some cards with numbers, letters or words into a bag. Students take turn pulling and reading a card from the bag. If they can read it, they keep it. If not, they place it back in the bag. Students continue to take turns pulling cards. If someone gets a card marked KABOOM!, they must put all of their cards back into the bag. Simple! My kids LOVE IT! I've had this game for 6+ years and the cards in the bin are getting a little raggedy. I don't even think they are laminated. I decided it might be a good idea to make my own! I found an old pretzel container and fancied it up a bit...
I cut out some construction paper and used spray glue and washi tape to give it that Tutu touch.
Here's the finished product.
I love it!
This game is so easy and provides a quick review for the kiddos. If you don't have a container like this, think about using an old gift bag, a brown paper bag, or even an old Pringles bin. You could even have the kids just stack the cards face down on the table. EASY PEASY! My packet even comes with a page to decorate your bag or bin.
Here are some pics of the product.
