It's WINSday {Double Dose of a Brand New Unit}

Hi friends!  It's Wednesday.  I love Wednesdays for so many reasons.  It's hump day....headed toward the weekend now.  It's my hubby's day off...I love just running errands and having an early {meaning "normal" dinner time} dinner with him.  It's shopping day....usually our errands lead to this {and the fact that my hubs loves to shop as much as I do}!  Today, I got some new camel-colored boots, but don't get me off topic! haha...I've been needing those for years.

And, it's the day when I get to give a little something away here on my blog.
Today, I'm going to give away our brand new Addition Strategies Unit.  When I say new...I mean brand-spankin' new!!  As I type this post, it hasn't even been uploaded to our sites yet!!  But, I am sooooo excited about it.  This unit came about as I was teaching my addition unit this year.

The unit has resources for teaching the following addition strategies:
* Adding Zero
* Counting On
* Flip Flop Facts
* Making 10
* Doubles
* Neighbor Facts {Doubles Plus One}
* Missing Addends
* Balancing Equations
* Problem Solving with Addition

For most strategies, there is a sign to display, practice pages, a quiz, and a craftivity or activity.  There's even a little problem-solving rap that my kiddos LOVE to help them remember the steps to problem-solving.  There are 88-pages of addition awesomeness here! ;)

To enter to win, just take a closer look at the craftivities included for each strategy and PIN your favorite one!  Then, comment below to tell me which pic you pinned.  Don't forget to leave your email address, too, so I can contact you if you're the WINNER!

You can enter again {yes, there will be TWO winners this week} on Instagram if you follow me there!


I'll announce the winner in my next post!  Good luck, friends!
