I used your apples, fall and Halloween centers with my kids this year. They loved them!! I can't wait to get the Holly Jolly Math and Literacy Centers! I have added them to my wishlist!! They look SUPER!!

I have also started using math journals this year. I love your journal prompts and how they get the kids to think about how they got their answer. I will also be adding them to my wishlist!!

Wow! This looks fabulous! I have your Fall centers and would LOVE to get this one but we aren't allowed to use anything related to Christmas at my school. No Santas, no Elves, nothing like that. =(
