Holy Hedgehog!! And, a Patriotic FREEBIE!

Hi Friends! Kerri here...
I just had to share about what visited my classroom today!! Look at this little munchkin...

Meet Delilah, a 4 year old hedgehog!! I think I'm in love, friends! Seriously, this little critter was SO CUTE! And, my kids were so stoked because we read The Hat a couple weeks ago, so they TOTALLY  got into it!! Well, except one little guy, who freaked out a bit (I think it was her prickles!) but, overall, WOW!! What a neat experience! Here is what they wrote about her...

"VARe quot"? Gotta love that phonetic spelling!! I especially heart his Hedgehog drawing!
I also just uploaded a little FREEBIE on TPT to go along with my "We Heart America! Math and Literacy Centers" just for all y'all to go and grab!! 

My kiddos have been working on counting on and counting back on a hundreds chart, and some of them are just not quite getting it, especially the counting back part, so I made this center to help them practice. Maybe your kidlets could use the practice as well?? You can also use these cards to practice place value, if you have sets of cubes and rods in your class. DOUBLE BONUS, RIGHT?? :)

Click on the Capitol Building to go to my TPT store and grab your copy!!

Gotta go, Parenthood AND New Girl is calling my name!! Hope you like your freebie and you have a great Hump Day tomorrow~

Ahh... I want a hedgehog! I took care of the one from the biology room one summer in high school. Maybe someday.

Thanks for the counting activity. I could definitely use this in my tier 2 MTSS group!

They are soooo cute! I've been lucky enough to have two as pets and they just crack me up..one was an albino (Snow) who was so sweet and friendly..and they're great to have when you study Jan Brett! So glad you got to experience one!
