Silly Sentences and Addition Facts Mini Book

I have no idea why I have waited so long to upload the Silly Sentences packet to TPT? However, tonight when uploading my Math Addition Facts Mini Book, I realized I never uploaded it… eek.

So tonight I have uploaded both of my new packets and you could be in luck to win them both! 
*Look for the details at the bottom of the post!*
I created this Addition facts Mini Book to go along with our lessons on addition. The mini book is 24 pages long (I included directions on how to put it into a double sided/ half page book). It includes: 
- Mini Book cover page
- Math Talk Words Page (define important addition words such as add, join, sum)
- Write your numbers page
-Addition Fact Pages (Adding zero through ten)
- Write it, Draw it, Create a Number sentence Page (for numbers one through ten)
*My students keep their books in their "Safe Place" Folder in their desk, which is where they store all of their important work! They will be able to quickly pull out their mini book for a quick reference on important addition information! :)
*I'll post pictures of my students' mini books tomorrow!*
Here is the Silly Sentences for Work Stations Packet I created! (It is currently on sale until Friday!) Here was my version from last year.

I really wanted to re-vamp it this year… and well, make it a little more fashionable right?

This activity can be used for your pocket chart workstation, word work workstation or for any other activity in your classroom where you would like to incorporate these silly sentences! The students will create a sentence using the words provided in the packet. The sentences will be formed by arranging the words in order of the colors (following the directions sheet) to create silly sentences that your students will LOVE!
I have included two sets of the same words: a colored set and a black and white set.
The colored set will need to be printed on white card stock, using colored ink. This will allow the students to place the sentences in the correct order using the colored glow around the words.
The black and white set may be printed on their corresponding colors cardstock or construction paper. Therefore, if you see a red color dot located at the top right corner, you will need to print those pages on red cardstock/ construction paper. Then you will do the same for the other colors: orange, yellow, green, blue, purple. Another option is to print the words on white cardstock/ paper and back them with their appropriate color.
*I suggest printing these silly words on either card-stock or a thick paper for durability!
Also included in the packet is: direction printable for students and corresponding recording sheets!
