Superbowl Countdown Week Packets!

Superbowl Packets for Oodles of Fun Learning this Week!
Hi folks! To shake things up a little bit this week be are beginning a new theme: Football. Every subject themed around football. Why football? For me, football is not that big a deal but the Superbowl is this Sunday and having two boys I thought it would a fun way to integrate two things they like sports and school. Therefore we are using two football packets created by some awesome and very talented first grade teachers!

First a unit I found created by Katie King. She's actually had a give-away but I didn't win. Never-mind that you can buy this unit with over 40 pages of work in the subject of math for $5 bucks! Check it out! We're also using another unit-pack with activity centers and printables created by Kelley's Fantastic Football Packet
See how awesome and creative the cover page is? But wait there's more!

Each day your student will be up to their ears in fun learning games that keep their attention and as all teachers know keeping their attention is hard but crucial ;)
 This unit pack includes:
  • Half Time Snack (counting coins)
  • Line 'Em Up! (non-standard measurement practice)
  • Keeping An Eye of the Clock (Time to the Half Hour)
  • Rah Rah Skip Counting (2s, 5s, 10s)
  • Place Value Match-Up! (Place Value and Greater Than/Less Than)
AND Printables
  • 5 Speed Drills
  • Place Value
  • Greater Than/Less Than
  • Even/Odd
  • Subtraction
  • Skip Counting 2s, 5s, 10s

And if that's not enough there are even more GREAT units you can easily printout for your students all in support of teachers. Check them out.

Enjoy a fun week with a different kind-of unit topic.

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
