4th of July blog hop ~ A freebie for you!

Happy 4th of July! I hope you are having a wonderful day enjoying time with family and celebrating our freedom. My dad and grandpa both served in the military. On these patriotic holidays, we remember those who've served to protect our country and the freedoms we enjoy. As I listen to the news around the world, which is especially grim at this time, I am reminded of the quotation that "freedom isn't free". There are many who have sacrificed their lives or health for our great country. I am so thankful for each of them. If you are a past or present service member or have family serving, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My freebie today is All-American Numbers - an I have, Who Has... game to identify the number that comes before. It is only free for today! A student will have a card that says something like who has the number that comes before 42. The student who has the next card will say, I have 41. Who has... and the game continues. My 1st graders really enjoy these I have, who has games. I have several ELA ones in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. I used them last year and I think the students forgot that they were learning! They really improved in the concepts that we practiced with these games. Click on the picture of the cover (All-American Numbers) to access the free download. Don't forget to go to the end of this post to enter a giveaway (you can win a gift card for TPT!) and to get more freebies at the rest of the hop.

I also have a few other patriotic items in my store. The new items are currently 1/2 off. I list new items at 1/2 off for 24 hours. I will also be bundling all my patriotic units. This bundle will be offered at a discount on July 4th. All proceeds from the sale of the bundle will go to the Wounded Warriors Project. Or, you can click on the logo above to go directly to the Wounded Warrior Project page and select your own donation amount.

If you like all of these products don't miss out on this fantastic bundle! TODAY ONLY (July 4th) this bundle is only $10. It will be $18 tomorrow, which is still a savings! Today, all profits from the patriotic items will go to the Wounded Warriors Project. If you've been wanting to send them a donation, this is the perfect opportunity! You'll support a great cause and have 5 patriotic products to use in your classroom. Just click on the picture below to go to the Patriotic Bundle.

And as an added bonus, all of the participating bloggers have 'pooled their cash' to purchase 4 $25 TpT gift certificates and 1 $10 Target gift card!
