Trying out some Flamingo Fabulous and the Clipart Challenge - Plus a giveaway!

For those of you on the East Coast, and that also still have the pleasure of being in school, you might have noticed your precious little barometers reacting to not only acute summeritis but also Tropical Storm Andrea.  It was a Friday, and it was raining, and it was going to be indoor recess...dear Lord, how did I survive the day?

I haven't decided if I was lucky or not to have planned to do our stuffed animal measurement fair today.  It certainly ended up having the right carnival atmosphere, the day was peppered with *ahem* psychotic clowns, and I can still hear that merry-go-round refrain "dut dut dutty dut, dut dut dut duh...".

The actual idea is awesome.  The package from Flamingo Fabulous is, indeedy, fabulous.  Super cute, super easy to do, very little prep on the teacher's part.  And the kids are totally INTO it. Click the picture below to get your copy at her TpT store!

And here's some of the fun in action:  Seven stations, eight different ways to measure.




 Weight - ounces

Weight - comparison

The pack comes with student data sheets, station instruction posters, class data recording sheets, template for the volume die, etc...  A GREAT PACKAGE!  My kids loved it.
In other news, the Sis and I participated in The Clipart Challenge.  Click the photo to see the first page of the link-up.

Traci and I got paired up with Jess from Early Years Fun. Click her button to see her post about the challenge.

She's a teacher in Australia, and made this most awesome freebie out of our Aquarium clipart package.  Click this picture to go to her product.

There's a write the room doubles fact activity, a patterning activity, and a roll and trace. And didn't I mention it's a freebie?!  Go download it now!

And check out the other clipart match-ups.  Lots and lots of freebies in the mix!

Oops!  This just in the second I pushed publish - Nick over at Sweet Rhyme and Pure Reason is having a remarkable giveaway celebrating his 100 followers.  The Meek Moose is available as a winner's choice- but there is TONS more to win.  Head over and try your luck!
