A Cool Freebie

I hope everyone is enjoying a nice holiday break.  I had a fabulous Christmas and now I am looking ahead at the new year!

I like to think of the new year as a fresh beginning!  What new routines and changes do I want to do in my classroom?  What are my plans for my personal goals and professional goals?  I will spend the next few days planning for 2014.  It is going to be a great year!

What better way to start 2014 than with a new freebie or two?  Here is a reading comprehension passage and quiz.  Click here to download Our Snowman.

Still Here!

Wow!  It has been a long time since I have blogged, 16 days. Oh my!  I can only blame the craziness December brings.  Then add a cold on top of it all and wow!  Well I am back now, even if it is just for a quick post.  It's a start.

OK, the week before Christmas break and a full moon!  That is just cruel.  However, I can make it!  Just 3 more days.

I have been super busy at school doing many great things.  I have been taking pictures and promise to share soon.

We are doing tens and ones in math.  I put together a quick and easy center for the kids and they have loved it.  I gave them a basket of snap cubes and cup with foam circles.  On the foam circles, I wrote different numbers between 1-120.  The kids pick a circle from the cup and then use the cubes to make that number using 10 rods and single cubes.  Their partner checks it and if it is right they get to keep the circle.  Then the next student picks a circle.  Sometimes the easiest things are their favorites and most effective.

Cyber Monday Sale

Hello everyone!  Just made it back from visiting family and a Regional Cheer Competition (daughter's team got 4th!) and my week long break is over....  Somehow I have not managed to complete anything on my list.  I can't even say I just relaxed, I did all kinds of things and not even fun things.  It just wasn't what I had planned!

I am frantically trying to get ready for school tomorrow but I wanted to let you know quickly about the big sale at Teachers Pay Teachers.  I have everything in my store 20% off then you get an additional percent off by using the code and it ends up being 28% off.

I know I will be doing a little shopping myself.  In this crazy holiday time, it is all about saving time for me!  (Speaking of time, I must get busy on my list during the last few hours of break.)
