Worksheet Wednesday AND Wish-List Wednesday

It's the middle of the week, so that means time for a post about my Wish-Lists.  Oh, and I also decided to link up with The Teaching Tribune for their linky party, 'Worksheet Wednesday'.  I'll start there today.

This is the first time I'm participating, so I thought I'd share one of my most downloaded worksheets.  This worksheet was designed to meet the Common Core Standard K.OA.3: Decompose numbers less than or equal to ten into pairs in more than one way.  The activity has kinders working on figuring out number partners for given numbers by drawing some marbles inside a jar and some out of a jar.  The worksheet gives them the number to create as well as the colors to use.  Best of all, it's FREE!!

Don't forget to go back to The Teaching Tribune and see what other bloggers have linked up to share their worksheets for this Wednesday!!

Last but not least, my Wish List Wednesday post.  Today I'd like to share with you some items I have checked off of my TPT list.  There have been so many awesome summer sales that it's been easy to grant some of my wishes!!  :-)  p.s. - Since 5 is my favorite number, that's how many wishes I granted myself.

I was able to scoop up this sweet creation from one of my very favorite clip art designers, Krista Wallden from Creative Clips.  Doesn't this set of clip art just make you want to high-tail it to the nearest cupcakery?!?!


I have been looking all over for a font like this, and there it was just chilling out on my TPT Wish List.  So, I made sure to buy it!!  It's from Mel at Graphics from the Pond, and is PERFECT for creating different activities to use during our Word Work time during Daily 5 rotations.  If you've ever worked with elkonian letter boxes, this is pretty much the same thing!!


Another purchase I have made off of my Wish List recently is a great set of candy store themed clip art that I got from Zip-a-Dee-Do-Dah Designs.  This set of clip art is what I'll be using to completely revamp how I track sight word mastery in my classroom.  Make sure to keep checking back so I can share with you how I'm using this!


I don't know about you all, but I simply LOVE adding to my Font Book!!  I have been actively searching out additions to my FB (Font Book) and came across this little gem.  It is only the first of many such packets created by Cara Carroll, so I made sure to add the other packs to my TPT Wish List!!


Last, but CERTAINLY NOT least, of my Wishes Granted that I'll share today comes from Laura at Whimsy Clips.  I just LOVE how cutesy her clip art is!!  This set is DEFINITELY going to be helpful when I start creating Word Work activities my kinders can complete during Daily 5!!  I was so excited to find this packet that contains ALL 5 vowels and their long vowel sounds.

I hope that my sharing some of my Wishes has inspired you to go and make a few of your own!!  I am eagerly anticipating a new release from Krista Wallden and CAN'T WAIT to add it to my collection!!  Don't forget to come back tomorrow for Throw Back Thursday!!


  1. Hello again, Erin. I have just left feedback on your freebie worksheet - it will be very useful and I love your post about wishes granted - the products you've chosen look fabulous! I too am a big fan of Krista Wallden - she is one very talented lady who is also very generous with all of her freebie clip art.
