The Magical Product Swap!

I'm super excited to be participating in my third Magical Product Swap, hosted by Mrs. Stanford!  I was lucky enough to be paired up with Laureen from Teach with Laughter!

Teach With Laughter
Laureen has 114 products in her TPT store!  Wowzers!  
I chose to review a product called "Tens and Ones Mystery Picture Bundle."
This product is AMAZING for several reasons:
1.  Students are working on PLACE VALUE/Tens & Ones!  This is one of the hardest concepts for students to master, so a product that effectively reviews this concept is awesome.  
2.  The bundle includes 17 different mystery pictures, and Laureen is always adding more to the bundle!  After you've purchased it, you can redownload it when she adds new mystery pictures.   Yay!
3.  There are a variety of themes, holidays, and occasions represented in the bundle, such as 100th Day, Christmas, Earth Day, Easter, Groundhog Day, Halloween, St. Patrick's Day, Thanksgiving, and Valentine's Day.  There are also non-holiday printables included in the bundle, such as penguins, lady bugs, gumballs, snowmen, apples, ice cream, and flowers!  I love that I will be able to incorporate this product throughout the school year because of the variety of themes.
4.  The product comes with an "I Can" instruction card so students know what to do at centers!
5.  An answer key is included for each activity so students can check their own work!  

Here is an example from the bundle: 
These are the student work pages:
 You could copy them front/back to save paper!  =)
Students can check their work using two different answer keys:
I LOVE these printables because students are working on place value in a fun, bright, and colorful way!  It's not a boring old worksheet!  My kids LOVE them already!  =)  

Here are the ways I plan to use them in my classroom throughout the year:
1.  The holiday themed mystery pictures are PERFECT for actual holidays!  It's a go-to activity on the day before Thanksgiving or Christmas break.
2.  These printables are ideal for math centers/stations.
3.  Awesome for morning work/bell ringer...
4.  Easy and fun activity to leave with a substitute.  
5.  Great activity to send home with kiddos who need a little extra practice!  

The Tens and Ones Place Value Bundle from Teach with Laughter is an awesome deal!  You get 17+ products for only $9.00.  Can't beat that!  You can also purchase individual mystery pictures from Laureen's store if you just want a particular holiday or themed picture (i.e. Earth Day mystery picture for Monday, April 22nd!)
