Pinterest, Robot Freebies, and Giveaways

This afternoon I spent probably 30 minutes pinning items.  Well, every time I do that I think I hit the refresh button 100 times.  If you are a blogger or on TPT, you know you do it too.  There is nothing more thrilling than seeing how many times one of your pins get repinned.  It is a little geeky, but in my world names like Deanna Jump and Jenaya Shaw mean more to me than Kobe Bryant or Jennifer Anniston.  Sure, those people are great, but I'd rather have a repin by one Deanna or Jenaya over an autograph any day.  

Now, if you are like me, while pinning you feel like you are looking through someone's photo album.  You see the beautiful wedding pictures, the family dinners, the candid shots, and then their "What were they thinking?" shots.  There are tons and tons of things to pin or I wouldn't have managed to pin around 4,500 items in the last year.  However, there are some pins that I can't understand.  The main ones are the kid food pins.  They are adorable, but really?  For example, the owl pancakes.  They are cute as can be, but do you guys want to eat bananas, Cheerios, chocolate chips, and a cashew on your pancakes?  Bless the heart of the person who came up with it, but I don't understand.  In my world the best pancakes just need butter, syrup, and a side of bacon.  
Alright, now that I've told you all about my Pinterest day, I have a few things to share with you.  The first thing is some of my new freebies.  I had TONS of people pin my compound sentence worksheet and my missing addend worksheet, so I'm guessing that most of us are wishing we had a few more resources for those specific standards.  So, this morning I created two more.  I used robot clip art because we are reading "My Robot" in a week or two.  I thought these would compliment the story.  The pictures are below the robot freebie, so if you like it, then click on the picture to go get it.  One of my teammates also asked for something with three addends, so I whipped up a Robot Center.  I am posting that one on TPT, so if you like it, you can click on one of the pictures, and go to my store to get it.  It's also a freebie, so PLEASE, I'm begging you leave a girl some feedback (Specifically, this girl).  



Last week, I also volunteered to be a part of a couple of giveaways.  I hadn't done any giveaways before, so I decided I better get with the program.  Below are the giveaways that I have joined.  You can click on the pictures to go join.  Each of these giveaways got so many things donated that they broke the items down into grade levels K-2, 3-5, 6-8, etc.  All of them have some awesome products, so I hope you will go check them out.  


Hope everyone gets some rest tonight and has a great day tomorrow!

  6. My son is obsessed with robots. He loves the math worksheet just b/c it is full of robots and stopped doing a more "fun" activity to do the worksheet. If only there were more with double digit addition/subtraction and some multiplication and division.
