Can you tell I'm on a math kick right now?!

My firsties need more practice with subtraction facts.  I have addition games for days, but need to build up my subtraction game stash.

So I created a Subtraction BOOM game to add to my "Math with a Buddy" area during Math Workshop. It's a simple game in which a player chooses a card and solves the subtraction fact.  If they get the answer correct, they keep the card.  If they get it wrong, the card goes back in the pile.  If a BOOM! card is pulled, the player must put ALL their cards back!  The player with the most cards at the end is the winner.

There are 72 subtraction facts in the game, as well as BOOM! cards, Lose a Turn cards, and Take One More cards.

I've uploaded the game to my TPT Store and I'm offering it as a FLASH FREEBIE for the next hour.  If you download it, don't forget to leave me some love!

It's almost St. Patrick's Day, woohoo!

I LOVE St. Patrick's Day!  With a name like Colleen and my flaming red hair, it's clear that I am just a WEE bit Irish, right?!

My original goal was to create ten math and literacy centers for my St. Patrick's Day pack.  But, well, things happen and I just couldn't quite get it all done.  So I made a St. Patrick's Day mini-unit instead.  I can't wait to use it with my class, especially the Tricky True False math center.  We definitely need more practice with that Common Core skill!

Check it out in my TPT Store.  My Lucky Learning mini-unit will be on SALE until tomorrow evening!
