product swap with Jen @ the teacher’s cauldron!

So I decided to join Jessica Standford’s product swap. I had missed out the first go-round, but got in quick this time!


So I really lucked out friends. I was paired up with Jen @ The Teacher’s Cauldron. She may have been slightly let down, but not me! woot woot! I mean, she’s a blog celeb! And her blog name…Cauldron…Halloween…witches…love!

So I headed over the Jen’s TpT store right then and there. I got to choose any of her products to review fo free! I chose the 3 Little Pigs Literacy and Math. I chose this file because 1. we are teaching traditional literature this month 2. my son’s teacher {my sweet teammie} was currently teaching with 3 Little Pigs and he was lovin it! 3. I love traditional stories because you can compare points of view, work on fact vs. opinion, lots of great writing opportunities, and they’re just plain good stuff. But you’ll get to read all about that later! and 4. It was so stinkin’ cute!

So first things first, I printed! Now my printer does this crazy thing…it spits at me. I think he’s been trading notes with our 3 year old.




I love the Counting Pigs math activity. It was the first thing I printed! I had lots of cutting to do while I watched Breaking Bad and read US Weekly in the dark! There’s also a Piggie Family: Matching addition to subtraction fact families,
This Little Piggie Regroups where you can use 2-digit addition, 2-digit subtraction, 3-digit addition, or 3-digit subtraction. We won’t regroup until next semester and this will be a great center! and Run, Piggie, Run! Telling Time to hour and half hour. Could those names be better!! so cute!

I love this game. It’s super easy to differentiate since I can have them count by 2s, 5’s, 10’s, etc. and since he’s reading the story in class, my middle Lamb was my guinea pig! We played together with his older bro.

As soon as he saw the Wanted poster, he grabbed it! I personally think he’s quite talented! Besides this little gem that I can use again and again, there’s some great adjective lessons. We used one as a Mad Libs. I gave the sheet {minus the word bank} to middle man and he went to town! We love Mad Libs! Of course there’s other adjective activities with sentence strips and word banks for your writing centers. My favorite literacy activity is the Who is the Wolf? My kiddos love bubble maps-they’re nerds like me! I can’t wait to work on point of view with this pack!


I’ll have even more goodness to share once I use everything the week after next {it’s a 2 day week this week!} I’m pretty pumped since I have all I need right here!

so, teaching 3 Little Pigs explicitly or not, there’s something for every little kiddo here!

Thannk you to Jessica for setting this up-it’s such a great way to see what’s out there.

And a big thank you to Jen for swapping with me! Since she’s on top of things-she’d already posted about my Process Skills for Little Scientists!

and SURPRISE! Jen and I will be doing a rafflecopter to give away one of each file PLUS my whole store will be on sale this weekend! Happy day!
