Tornadoes! Numbers to 120 Charts! Awards!

Hi everyone! I hope your Saturday is going well. My thoughts are still with all of those who suffered through those horrible tornadoes this week. I saw on the news that there were over 90 tornadoes reported yesterday alone! That's insane!!

I grew up in the midwest and I used to LOVE a good thunderstorm. But now that I've lived in Utah for so long, I admit, I am a total wimp when I go back to visit family in Illinois and there is a thunderstorm. I seriously believe the thunder out there is significantly louder than what we experience out here in the mountains.....Or maybe, I've just become soft...

All I know is that I still have this crazy nightmare every now and then about a tornado chasing my sister and me through our house, down into our basement trying to suck us out of the house and all I can do is grab on to the metal pole in our basement with one hand and hang on to her with the other hand as she is flying up in the air....then I wake up. In a sweat. Ughh! So, yah, my thoughts are definitely with all of you.

On a brighter note, I made another FREEBIE!! Yeah!! This is for all of you who are using the new Common Math Core. First graders have to be able to count to 120. This freebie is printed on LEGAL paper. I just couldn't get it to fit on standard paper. I hope you can find it useful!
