1st Grade Chicks and Bunny Shakers

Interesting title, huh?!?! I'll explain.....

We have new 1st grade friends on our hall!!! My team member had a parent bring in an incubator full of eggs and look at the preciousness that hatched out of them!!! This is the first one that hatched on Monday & two more hatched today!!! So much fun...they are TOO cute!!! I'm in L.O.V.E....seriously!!!



Now onto the "Bunny Shakers"!!! Aren't these so sweet!?!?! I saw them at the Dollar Tree and immediately thought "DICE SHAKERS"!!! YAY!!! I love a good ole' day at the Dollar Tree. I can't wait to use them with my Spring and Hippity Hoppity Math and Literacy Centers!!! It's worth checking out your nearby $Tree to see if they are available!!!



I made an addition and subtraction recording sheet to go along with these adorable bunny shakers. Students make addition and/or subtraction number sentences with the numbers on the dice. Click on the pictures to download them!!!



Don't forget to participate in my giveway celebration!!! If I reach 200 followers by Friday, I'm going to give 2 lucky followers (instead of 1) the center packets!!! Please post about it on your blog to send others this way!!! Thanks for spreading the word!!!


Hope you're having a fabulous evening!!! Tomorrow is my last day before SPRING BREAK!!! To make it an even better day, it's also my son's 2nd birthday!!!! WOOOOHOOOO!!!

Okay, I totally saw those adorable bunny containers at the dollar tree and I definitely did not have the incredible vision that you do! That is SO cool!!

I was just at the Dollar Tree getting the large foam dice for The First Grade Parade activities that were posted this morning! What is the 'actual' purpose for those precious bunnies?

Are you sure it is a Dollar Tree. I went to 4 today and no one had them. I really would like to get some of these.

Yes, they were at the Dollar Tree. I'm guessing some stores might not carry them or they could possibly be sold out??:( What a bunny bummer!!!!

Mrs. Daniels First Grade said...

Do they come in purple and green too? I think I might of found them but they are saying they have them in pink, green and purple.

I went to my local Dollar Tree today.
I found out that you can go to their site online & order merchandise.
http://www.dollartree.com/home.jsp They'll send it to your local store- NO SHIPPING!

Anna Brantley said...

That's awesome!!! I hope you all can get them:)

Mrs. Daniels First Grade said...

Well Anna I went and it was the wrong thing. As far as ordering them...they need the upc in order to look them up...can you help in that.

WOW!!! If you could post the UPC code that would help all of us. I live 50 miles from the closest one but my friend would pick them up for me or I could order if I had that.

Anna Brantley said...

I will go to my local store tomorrow and post UPC code on here for all of you!!! Check back tomorrow night:)
