Note: as with most of the items I review in this category the items are not toys, games, game pieces, game boards, game devices, or cards to use in game apparatus, nor are they office materials or Soft ware per se, rather these are classroom type materials designed by educators, created by educational publishers and intended for use with Early Childhood, primary and older age Elementary students in a classroom or home school environment.
This product is a packet of paper Die Cut Accents
Creative Teaching Press™ 1 inch, Winter Snowflakes Die Cut Accents are packaged 150 pieces to the packet.
This collection of 6 different designs is a companion offering to the larger 6 inch snowflakes previously reviewed. This packet holds an assortment of snowflakes having the same white with gold, white with magenta, white with blue and white with white all set against a azure background.
This is a nice, large mixture of snowflakes just right for Little Learner Math Reinforcement work including patterning, counting, sequencing, and mathematical addition and subtraction operations. Most winters here inOklahomawe know we are likely to see a good bit of snow and even ice.
Osage County First Grade enjoys using a multiplicity of winter focused reinforcement aids during intensification tasking sessions following conclusion of the tutoring component of the lesson.
These are attractive pieces generated as are others offered by this publisher of best quality raw materials chosen to meet industry and legal standards regarding safety and durability along with non toxic inks for crafting a projects which can safely be used in the classroom
Because I purchase a great many of the instructional and strengthening materials used in my Osage County First Grade I am always pleased to discover hard-wearing, ingenious, sensibly priced, educator designed, kid friendly, standards based, teacher affordable materials for classroom usage.
Osage County First Grade uses smaller accents for various Language Arts and Math work.

The diminutive, 1 inch size of these particular snowflakes lends to their utilization as award and reward token, game pieces, in addition to using with glue stick or clear tape to add a snowflake to writing, binder or journal cover and the like throughout the drearies of those often bleak, stay indoors, winter months.
As always; I am delighted to recognize reliability of this educational publisher with manufactured items offered with educator input regarding design, including designer intent to meet state and common core standards set in place regarding what is to be taught in the nation’s public schools. This publisher can be relied upon to cater my needs and values regarding the materials I want for my classroom.
Safety, durability, child pleasing rate high in my considerations when I look for materials to replenish or add to the stock of accents holding over from one year to another. Eventually even the best made goods begin to show signs of wear, and or, a particular accent proves so satisfying to Little Learners I send some of that particular item home with Little Learners for use to keep skills strong during the long summer hiatus.
Striking, educator and student pleasing accents filled with vivacity, and shimmering colors, designed by educators, crafted of premium, acid free card stock papers and imprinted with impressive, smudge defiant, non-hazardous inks conforming to industry standards and governmental regulations regarding safety of materials to be used with young children as well as designed with regard to teaching standard requirements; these snow flake accents sized with Little Learner ease of use in mind provide lots of enjoyment for nominal cost.
Happy to recommend Creative Teaching Press™ 1 inch, Winter Snowflakes Die Cut Accents
Note: For the best use of my school supply budget; during summer break I haunt the school supply shops looking for bargains on the shelves as retailers try to move out last years stock to make room for the new items offered by Educational Publishers. When I do find packets, especially those holding many accents I try to buy several packages for lots of classroom opportunities and to have some to go home as awards, rewards or just because.
NOTE: I find Creative Teaching Press Items available online from a wide diversity of websites as well as on the shelves of walk in brick and mortar shops catering to the classroom, education and home school market. Price varies by when and where purchase is made.

From the Creative Teaching Press site: Creative Teaching Press (CTP) is a family-owned and teacher-managed supplemental educational publisher for grades PreK-8. CTP is a recognized leader in the industry and offers a wide variety of learning décor and research-based, teacher-tested products that deliver standards-driven content including: phonics, reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. CTP celebrates more than four decades of providing parents and teachers with high-quality, easy-to-use solutions.
In 1965, Luella Connelly was a classroom teacher looking for products that would pick up where textbooks left off. After 17 years in the classroom, she knew that students often needed something beyond textbooks to reinforce skills in a creative and comfortable way.
Connelly created "Recipes for Creative Writing," a box of 4" x 6" cards full of writing ideas. What started as a simple idea to help students learn, turned into a company that Luella and her husband, Pat, ran until their retirement in 1998.
The company's big break came in 1977 with the introduction of its innovative Scratch ‘n Sniff reward stickers. Market response to these stickers was phenomenal, with teachers and students all over the world buying and collecting them!
Since the Scratch ‘n Sniff phenomenon, CTP has been at the forefront of the educational market. CTP expanded offerings to cover educational needs for grades PreK-8. Its editors, product developers, and authors all have classroom teaching experience and regularly visit classrooms and attend workshops and conventions to ensure that CTP's products are what teachers want and need!
Jim Connelly, Luella and Pat's son, has held multiple titles and responsibilities since joining the company in 1982. He was named president in 1994. In his tenure with CTP, the company has quadrupled its sales and expanded its international market presence.
