Lots of wintery activities.

I have been a busy busy bee. As soon as the weekend hit my brain exploded in fun winter ideas and part of me is getting excited for break to be over so I can start having fun with my kiddos. Only part of me though, the other part is soaking up all these lazy mornings and late nights with friends and family :)

Here's some things I've been working on:
My winter math books are done. My kids did great with the christmas set so I decided to make a winter set as well to reinforce some of those skills that may have floated out of their brains a bit over the long break :)  Click the picture to find it in my store.



I also finished my winter interactive emergent readers. I think it's so funny that I live in Florida but spend most of January teaching about snowmen and winter clothes. Hopefully these will be a little more relevant to your kiddos if you are living ANYWHERE north of me haha


You can also grab those two along with my January Morning Work all together in my Winter Bundle.


Finally here's a freebie for you. A cute little emergent reader that goes through the steps to build a snowman :) Just click on the picture to grab your copy. Happy Monday everyone!!

January Morning Work

I hope you are all having a wonderful break with your loved ones. My break has been a mix of extreme stress and extreme bumming around my house haha. So so glad that we don't go back until January 8th! My brain is already starting to wander into planning mode and I FINALLY finished my January morning work. It is packed with 4 weeks of common core skills in both reading and math. Click on the pics to find it in my store.

I'M ALIVE!! (and some Christmas freebies)

OH.MY.GOODNESS I cannot believe it is already almost halfway through December!! Life has been all KINDS of crazy this semester and I have neglected my poor innocent blog for far too long! We have been busy busy busy in my room getting ready for our Christmas program, making our big Christmas books (blog post about that to come when they are done!!) report card testing, and doing lots and lots of great learning. I have some random pictures to share from just some of the moments (when I remembered to snap pics) over the last few weeks.  AND a great freebie to share with you at the bottom :)


 This fun sight word center came from the Vicki Plant's fabulous Christmas Unit :)



 Super easy ornaments using pipe cleaners and pony beads. Great fine motor skills...plus the kids were SILENT at this center haha.

These next few are from my Christmas Math Books pack.



 This was another quick fix for a center when the copier broke last week. These reindeer were so simple but the kids loved making them and they turned out so cute :)

 Scrambled sight word book (one of the freebies at the bottom of the post :)

 OK I just discovered Maria Manore's (Kinder-craze) AMAZING interactive sight word readers and I am IN LOVE with them!! This was one of the pages from Do You See The Gingerbread Man. There are a TON more...go check out here store :)
 These are from my partner teacher's class from last Friday when we decorated gingerbread cookies. The hair on these gingerbread girls cracked me up! haha

 These next few activities are in my Christmas Ten Frames pack.


 This is also in one of the freebies below :)


And now for all my sweet followers 2 freebies. The first is a mini math pack to help you get through these last few crazy days. You can grab it below or in my store here.  I also have the scrambled sight word Christmas lights book below. There are blank pages at the end to program your own words :)
