Freebie on the First - Going to Brightly Beach

Wow. May is here already. Which means it is time for Freebie on the First. And after checking for the post all day, I am finally linked up - click the Freebielicious button to the right. I couldn't decide what freebie to offer. For Mother's Day and Father's Day, I am working on interactive readers about family (and a few games too!). So check out Fridays in May for a freebie to go with those.

It is vacation time! We still have all of May and half of June before Summer Break here but who doesn't love the beach.

I created a Bright Beach Calendar Pieces Plus set (with multiple patterns of calendar pieces and headers, printable calendars, and recording sheets to use extra pieces in centers) a coordinating Bright Beach Write the Math Room (with addition, subtraction, ten frame, base ten, dominos and a variety of recording sheets) and a new game Brightly Beach Balance It! (for use with number balances)

....all with freebies in the download preview on TPT links above or TN.

Since we are in a beachy frame of mind, why not create Brightly Beach in your classroom? Do you have a sensory table? Hide laminated cards in the sand. Have the students use a small pail and shovel to find and record the numbers from sand. No table? Use a Rubbermaid container. Sand too messy? Simply put the cards in a pail and have the students take turns pulling a card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is a sample of my Reptiles Graph It from last week in action. My kinders worked in groups to create graphs and write sentences about the data.


  1. Wow! These are great, thank you for sharing this freebie. I am now your newest follower. Would love for you to come check out my blog when you get a chance.
