Itsy Bitsy Christmas {Review & Giveaway}

“The King has come! Even for a little one like me.”

Are you looking for a meaningful Christmas book for your kiddos?
Well, you've found it with Itsy Bitsy Christmas.  This adorable book is a unique way for your children to hear the story of Christmas from the animals point of view!  Two little mice hear that the King is coming and excitedly run to tell all the other animals.  None of the other animals believe them, saying the Bethlehem is too small for an important King to come.  Itsy and Bitsy search everywhere for the King and, in the end, finally find him in his manger.  All of the animals find out the King came for them even though they were doubtful, cranky, and ordinary.

From Tommy Nelson:
“The King has come! Even for a little one like me.”
Do you ever feel like you are too small or too ordinary? That is just how Itsy and Bitsy feel. When these two charming little mice hear that a King is coming to Bethlehem, they set off with great enthusiasm to find Him. Along the way, they are met with discouraging words telling them they are too little and unimportant for any king. Just when Itsy and Bitsy begin to believe that they really aren’t big enough for the new King, they learn that Christ the King has indeed come for everyone.
Crafted by master storyteller Max Lucado, Itsy Bitsy Christmas helps children understand God’s great love and know that He sent His Son for all of us—little or big, young or old.

Thanks to Tommy Nelson you can win a copy of this book for your family.
Enter using the Giveaway Tools below.

Giveaway is open to U.S. only and ends at 11:59 p.m. on 12/9.

The Story of Christmas {Review & Giveaway}

Christmas is right around the corner and it's time for a Christmas story giveaway! 

"The true Christmas story in a package kids will love."

Sometimes it's easy to forget the real reason for the season, that's why its so great to start telling the story of Christmas to your little ones early.  This adorable book tells the miraculous story in a way to keep your little's attention- in rhyme.   The super cute illustrations just add to the story's allure.

Little Guy was drawn to this board book right away.  I love that he can hear the nativity story while he's so young.  He's really into rhyming books right now, so this keeps his attention.  The padded cover is soft and durable for little hands.  There's even a handle to make it super easy for kids to carry wherever they go.

Thanks to Tommy Nelson Kids you can enter to win one this season for your little one!

Thanksgiving Math Resources

It's officially November and that means it's time to get ready for Thanksgiving!  

I just posted my new Thanksgiving Themed Math Centers in my TpT store! 

There are 6 Thanksgiving themed Math Centers included:
Corn Field Line Up (2.NBT.A.4) Ordering Numbers with 2 & 3 digit options  
Turkey Tens & Hundreds (2.NB.T.B.8) +/- 10 or 100  
Thanksgiving Place Value (2.NB.T.A.1 & 3) Showing numbers in word form, expanded form, and models  
Pilgrims Tens Go Fish (2.OA.B.2) Combinations of 10  
Double It Up Pumpkins (2.OA.B.2) Doubles facts  
Plentiful Addition (2.NBT.B.5) One, Two, or Three-Digit Addition

Also included in this Math Centers Pack are Thanksgiving Themed Number Cards that are used with 5 of the 6 centers. The great thing about using the number cards is that your students can visit these centers multiple times and each time they will work with different numbers!  Of course, these centers could also be used in 1st or 3rd grade depending on your students. :)  I'm planning on getting these started in my classroom this week!

I also have my Thanksgiving Math Worksheets  Pack available in my TpT store.  You can check them out here.

These 11 Thanksgiving themed math worksheets cover:
Working with Hundreds Models (Place Value)
Expanded Form (Place Value)
+/- 10
Addition & Subtraction Story Problems
Counting by 5’s & 10’s
Odd & Even
Addition & Subtraction Facts
2 digit Addition w/o regrouping
2 digit Subtraction w/o regrouping

These were made for 2nd grade, but could work with your 1st or 3rd graders depending on your kids. :)
