Snow Day Sale!

Happy Snow Day! Rather, Happy Ice Day! This Georgia weather has been crazy this year. We have already missed a full week of school, 2 weeks ago, due to snow and ice and now we are going to be missing another full week of school due to snow and ice. As much as I love getting to sit at home in my PJs I'm really concerned about my small groups; they need as much time in school as possible! Since I can't work with my little ones this week I thought I would join up with Comprehension Connections in a Snow Day Sale! 

For this sale, I am linking up with a bunch of blogging buddies for a blog sponsored sale.  We are each selecting two items to showcase in our posts and discounting them on Wednesday and Thursday until 10 PM EST.  The product names and discounted prices can be found below.  To access the products, you just simply click on them.  If you are a fellow blogger, feel free to join in with a maximum of two sale products.  Just add your products to the bottom with the price, grab the linky code, write up a post about your products, and attach the code to the bottom of your post to share.  Simple as that!  (Please be respectful and follow the rules.  I will monitor and delete items without a post or that aren't on sale as that is frustrating to shoppers and fellow bloggers who take time to post and share ideas. No more than two product uploads per person please.)

My first product on sale is my Mystery Words Winter Words activity. This product helps students practice the phonics skills, reading skills, and word recognition skills. The students will try to "Break the phonics code" by writing the beginning sounds of pictures until the create a word. They can then practice writing the word and coloring a picture of the word. There are also matching cards that the students can use to practice reading the words or that you can use to place on your word walls, play games, etc. My 1st graders LOVE this activity and are always asking to "play" at this center. 

Normally $3 on sale for $2

The next product that I'm showcasing is my Beginning Sounds Flash Cards and Alphabet Line. This product allows you to create a full size (8.5" X 11") alphabet line to display in your classroom and also allows you to print smaller flash cards to send home, put in a center, etc. for your little ones. Each card features multiple pictures that match the letter sound. 

Normally $3 on sale for $2 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you have a wonderful, and warm, day!

Back to Work and a Valentine's Day Freebie!

First view, after about 45 minutes and 1/4-1/2 inch of snow

I can't believe it's already Monday! It was so hard getting back into the swing of things at work today. We've been out of school for 6 days due to horrible conditions in our area last week.

View from my apartment after 3 inches of snow

I've been staying up way to late (midnight or later) and I could tell that the kids have too. I was super excited to actually get back to work but why is it so hard to pick back up after such a long break?

While I was out I decided to throw together a fun little freebie for you all! I know that many students struggle with contractions so I wanted to make a fun little worksheet to help them practice this skill.
Head on over to my TPT or TN store to download this freebie!
Also, today is the last day to get 25% off my entire TN shop! You will also get an additional 10% off, thanks to the current Teacher's Notebook Super Sale promotion.
