Swap, Share, Give: A blog linky from Down Under

I have linked up with Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep as part of her Swap, Share and Give linky! So here it is!
My product swap was with the wonderful Mel from Top Notch Teaching. Mel is based in Perth, Australia and is a Teacher and Learning Specialist. I jumped at the chance to review her pack "Digraph {sh} Activities, Games and Worksheets" knowing that some of my kiddies are going to need this very soon!
This pack is a total of 26 pages, including a little bit of everything to help children understand the digraph "sh". To start with, there are full instruction and then wordlists - like this one!
 Then some flashcards with some super cute graphics! Each flashcard has the "sh" in a different colour to the rest of the word. Here are my flashcards being laminated!
Here are some little snapshots of the worksheets included - there are a total of 11 pages!
Cut and Match
 Un-Jumble the Words
Word Triangles
Jumbled Sentences
The last thing in this great pack is the set of 6 Bingo cards. Perfect for small group work. What I love about this bingo is there are two different ways to play it. You can either a call out the matching cards, or call out the "Who Am I" cards. I love this little challenge for the students and the extra thinking they would need to do to play bingo! The "Who Am I" cards also have another use, use them with the matching cards! Here are my resources ready to use! 

I can see myself definitely using this pack and heading back to Mel's stores to buy the other packs too!

Next I would like to share a new freebie with you!
I have been using these number peg strips since the start of the school year! Each child has a number strip and a peg and sit on the floor ready to listen! I call out numbers and the children move the peg to the number I have called out. Soon I am going to introduce them to the 0 to 20 strips as well as add in some addition and subtraction problems. Great for fine motor skills and number practise!
