Even and Odd Fun -- Freebie

I took an unplanned break from blogging--

Thoughts of Sandy Hook took all my energy and desire for creating for awhile. I've decided the best way to face that tragedy is to do something nice  once a day in honor and memory of the victims and survivors of Sandy Hook. I started with contacting a former teacher and letting him know how much I appreciated all he did for me in high school and in recent years. Think back on the teachers that meant the most to you. Let them know what a big part of your life they have been and still are!

The flu crept up on me (thank heavens I had a flu shot so it wasn't as bad as it could have been), and I even missed my party with my kids at school. 

Then Christmas came and went! Both kids are home from college, so nothing is normal!

I finally got back in the swing of things tonight. We tackle even and odd numbers when we go back to school on January 7, so I've created several activities to use in my math stations. I'll post all of them over the next several days. They are similar because I want my kiddos to practice on constructing even and odd numbers for several days.

Just click on the pic above to get the first activity.

Enjoy the rest of your break!


  1. What a cute, cute game!! Now I need to think of a way to use it at a more difficult level for my 2nd graders. It's perfect for my January snow/Arctic unit.


  2. Mary,
    I think that for most teachers, especially those of us at the elementary level, the tragedy at Sandy Hook is going to take a long time for healing to take place. There seems to be a sparkle that has gone out in many of the teachers that I work with.
    You bring light to all of us here with your blog and how you share your ideas so freely with us. I really look forward to seeing what your latest freebies are about. You have such great ideas!
    Thank you for all you do!

  3. To echo what Diane said, you have done so much for all the teachers/students who benefit from your very generous and useful activities. I am truly appreciative.

  4. I think your work is just incredible. The fact that you share it freely is even more so... You rock!
