"Ulta"mate Gift Card Holder FREEBIE

Hey peeps!

My school year is coming to a close soon. I was trying to think of something different to give to my one and only parent helper.

I decided on a gift card to Ulta. So I made this little card holder to go with it.

After I shared it on Instagram, I received several requests for it. So, I've made it editable. I also added lots of options beyond "CLASSROOM HELPER!"

Head on over to my store and pick up this little FREEBIE!!
Please follow my store while you're there! Don't forget to leave some feedback! THANK YOU!!!

Happy almost of the the school year!!

Making TENS with a Rainbow to 10!

Hi friends, Teri from A Cupcake for the Teacher here!  My firsties and I are working hard on addition and subtraction to 40.  Math with big numbers can be a bit tricky... especially when we seem to have forgotten our facts to ten!  That's why I created this little freebie:

Rainbow to 10 is a colorful way to remind our littles of all the ways to make a ten!  Included in the freebie are two posters {one in color for displaying, one in b&w for copying} and a practice sheet.

To grab your FREEBIE copy of Rainbow to 10, stop by my blog.  You'll also find a matching CRAFTIVITY and an anchor chart along the way!
