March is ALMOST here!

This weekend was a blustery weekend in Maryland. The birds are chirping. Jackets are the outerwear of choice. Time to get busy with my March creations! I created this really cute freebie!
I also created some Bingo games for TIME. My Money Bingo games are very popular, so I thought I woul create a game for telling time to the five minutes. I created two sets. Set #1 contains 30 gameboards, enough for an entire class!

Set #2 contains a smaller St. Pat's day set of 7 game boards. These could be used in guided small group math instruction. It could serve as a very quick and fun assessment for your students.
State testing is quickly approaching, so I will be very busy at school and won't have time to try out these fun games. I am hopeful to squeeze them in this week BEFORE the test to use as a quick refresher on time.

Caterpillar Activities

I created my first 3 caterpillar activities, which I hope and plan to be successful in a line of caterpillar activities. My idea was to create a domino type game, where the students match equivalent forms of a content: money, time, fractions, numbers, etc. My first three activities are finished and have been posted on my store. I think they turned out REALLY well and are Very CUTE! Check them out! As a BONUS, I created ALL of the graphics myself. ALL OF THEM! The borders are a compilation of my own graphics as well. I even created the cute little clock faces. I have some plans to make clock flash cards with them in the near future. I think they turned out really well.

I also created a fun money matching game.

This week I launched my own line of clip art. Most people don't know that I have a background in Art. Prior to becoming an Education Major, I had planned to pursue Art. I even had a handsome invite to the Maryland Art Institute. That was back in the 80's before computers were even invented. So, I am putting my artistic creative skills to use by creating computer graphic/clip art. I am having so much fun creating art on the computer. With much thought and deliberation, I decided to call my creations "Monster Graphics by Carrie". This idea came from a friend who suggested that I try something and then she said, "I've created a monster".. thus... Monster Graphics was born. I've become a monster. I AM the monster. I hope you visit my store and see my creations. Here is one of my graphic set that I have just completed. How CUTE are they? I think they are SUPER Cute. But most importantly... I am having FUN!
