Magical Product Swap

It's time for the Magical Product Swap!  I absolutely love being able to swap products with a fellow blogger.  I was paired with Sandy from Second Grade Spots and Dots.  I love that I was paired with her because she is a newbie blogger like me.  She's super sweet and her products and ADORABLE!  Make sure you go check out her blog.  I can't wait to stalk read her blog. Make sure you show her some love! Click on her button to see her review of my Let's Build a Snowman packet.

Now for the fun part! :-)

I swapped my Let's Build a Snowman packet for her Winter Suffixes packet.  My kiddos LOVED walking around the room and writing down the word, the suffix, and the meaning.  What a great review!  Some of my smarties had forgotten what a suffix was and this was a great activity to quickly remind them!  LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!

I had my printed papers on my desk and some of my kiddos came and asked if they could cut them out and place them around the room.  I so love my kids.  It's great to have some amazing helpers!

Their favorite part was walking around the room and trying to find all the cards.  They thought of it as a scavenger hunt!

Here's a couple of pictures of some of the cards.  Yes, they come in color but my printer decided to run out of ink.  My smarties are used to black and white images anyway! ;-)

So, if you need a quick and super cute activity to reinforce suffixes or you are just beginning to teach suffixes make sure you check out her packet.  Click on her picture below to visit her TpT store.

AND...I will be giving away 3 items from my store to one lucky winner.  Yay! All you have to do is leave me some love.  Tell me your favorite thing to do in Winter.  I will pick a random winner on Sunday. Good luck!

Lots of love,

  5. I love to go outside and play with my 6 year old son and then come in and warm up under a blanket,
    snuggle and watch a movie or two with him :-)

  6. This sounds like an awesome pack, I'm definitely checking it out. Thanks for the review Jeannie!

    My favorite winter activity is sledding. Every time I go, it brings the kid out in me! I just love the rush of zooming down a hill, maybe falling and laughing my buns off the whole time.

  10. My favorite winter activity is to curl up with a blanket and a good book :) And my favorite thing to do with my students is to show them how different winter is in Buffalo NY compared to where we are now (Memphis). They are just amazed at the amount of snow that falls. This year we are going to compare and contrast the two using the book Buffalo Snow that my friend sent us. I can't wait!
