Snow Day Productivity

Three snow days in a row?  That's unheard of in Alabama!  I pretty much wasted the first two days, but today I woke up with a mission… make an "Arctic Animal Write the Room Activity" for my upcoming Arctic Animal unit.  It has been posted to TPT if you are interested.

NEW President's Day Activities

Happy Groundhog Day!  Where I live, the groundhog did not see his shadow, so hopefully SPRING will be here soon!  (probably wishful thinking)  While everyone else has been getting ready for tonight's big game, I've been busy making a couple of new items for President's Day!  They are both for sale now on TeachersPayTeachers.





 "We the People: A Patriotic Write-the-Room Activity" is 12 cards with words and pictures of American sites and symbols.  It includes a recording sheet that students may want to keep so that they can spell these words correctly when they write.



"Sites, Songs and Symbols of the USA" is an 18-page reproducible book to use when teaching about America.  Each page has a picture and a paragraph or two that could be used for close reads in Kindergarten and First Grade.

Now I'm off the watch Downton Abbey!

Time to SHOP!

I have SOOOOO enjoyed my wonderful 5 day break!  Ah, the joy of having a new kitten and a  Christmas tree at the same time!  I don't know if the tree will make it till Christmas or not!



But (unfortunately) it's time to get back to business!  Besides doing lesson plans, printing and laminating, I'm filling up my cart on TPT!
If you are in a shopping mood, too, everything in my store is on sale!

Groovy Cat's Shoes, Shades and Buttons!



I have just finished and posted my new pack of Math and Literacy activities to use with the "Pete the Cat" books to TeachersPayTeachers.  It's called "Groovy Cat's Shoes, Shades and Buttons!  (There's a NEW book coming out in October called "Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses" so I included those.)

I LOVE using the Pete books at the beginning of the year, so most of the activities are geared toward that time of year, but could really be used all  year for review.  Click on the image to stop by my TPT store and check it out!  (That's my cat Elmer in the small photo.  Isn't he a stud?!)

Oh my!  It's been SO long since I blogged!  I'm ashamed of myself!  Now that I'm out of school (Whoop!  Whoop!) and getting into that cleaning out closets and office mood, I was wondering about something?

What do you do with all your old teacher resource books that you no longer use?  Throw them in the trash?  Sell them on eBay?   Give them away?

Please leave comments!  I have several shelves full of them that I want to get rid of.
