A Pinterest Inspired Art Project and . . . a differentiated place value freebie.

No I haven’t been dying my sheets in our kindergarten class but we have been doing these beautiful Pinterest inspired tissue paper tie dye art that I just HAD to share with you. 
I the got idea from HONEST TO NOD when I saw this picture
It looked easy enough and guess what?  It is!
You have to be really careful when your pulling it apart.
You don’t want it to be completely wet but you don’t want it to be completely dry either.
But once it’s opened . . .
Is it ever gorgeous.
And yes . . . even a kindergartener can handle it.  I really loved making these and you should give it a try. I hung them up outside my class from a clothes line with clothes pins.  It kind of looks like I’ve put out my laundry to dry.  Unfortunately, this picture doesn’t do the colors justice.  Trust me, they’re so pretty.

Oh yeah . . . and I promised you a freebie too didn’t I. 
Here’s another write the room activity since I’ve had so many of you respond that your students have enjoyed them.  This is actually one I’ve revamped from a while ago. I’m not sure if I got the idea from someone else or if it was one of those brilliant ideas I came up with on my own (doubt it)  it’s been so long ago so if you can remember seeing something like this let me know so I can credit them back. This time they’ll be searching for place value cards and recording them.
Just click the picture to grab it and of course, drop me a line if you use it.  I love to get comments or find out I have a new friend following me.
