Who Doesn't Love Chester? B-day Freebie #5

Hi everyone!
     I'm overwhelmed by the kind words and comments everyone has been leaving!  When I started this blog a week ago, I had no idea how much I would enjoy it.  I've always been the kind of teacher who likes to share with other teachers, but this whole blogging thing brings it to a whole new level.  It's so cool to think that teachers from California to Maine, from Australia to the Middle East, and from Canada to Florida will be using my creations in their classrooms.  Pretty stinkin' cool!
     For those of you asking about my blog design, when I decided to jump into the Blogger world, I decided to try my hand at designing.   I bought a cute digital scrapbooking kit (for $1.00 - woohoo!) called Sweet Summer and played around with all of the elements.  After lots (and I mean LOTS!) of trial and error and ended up with a design I love.
    Today's birthday freebie features another old favorite, The Kissing Hand.  We've all read it a hundred times and know the power of it's message.  I'm working on a Kissing Hand unit for back to school time, and this is one of the math activities from the pack.  It's a spin and graph game that's a great way to introduce partnering and teamwork in the beginning of the year.  I hope you enjoy it!
