It's Here!!!!! {Edited to add AWESOME Freebie!}

....the BiG BlOg SwAp!!! 

Let's show some bloggy love to Mandy from A Special Kind of Class!

Hi everyone,  this is Amanda Myers from A Special Kind of Class!

I thought I would share an activity that I did last week with my class.  Yes, last week.  Thursday was our last day so in this hot weather it's a perfect time to do some cool activities.  This making ice cream activity is perfect for children of any ability.  Once the ingredients are in the ball, all you have to do is roll it around.  The ice cream ball was bought at MasterMind here in Canada but I'm sure it would be easy to find online.

Check back later for a freebie!!!!  It's a simple alphabet matching game.  The children need to match the upper to the lower case letter.  It's perfect for a review in the fall or practice over the summer for your lower firsties who need that extra work. 

Here it is...worth the wait!!!!  Hope you enjoy it!  And if you didn't visit Mrs. Lirette Learning Detectives go do that now!  That's where I was today!!!

Thanks for letting me visit and don't forget to come back later to download the activity!  Feel free to come and visit me anytime at my blog.

Thanks so much, for stopping by, Mandy!  Be sure to head over to Mandy's blog to find out just what life's like in her neck of the woods!!!

  11. Love the ice cream ball! When I was grad school, one of my professors had use make ice cream in ziploc bags by throwing it back and forth between partners. This is soooo much better...definitely going to look for one.
