Spring Break Activity

Spring Break is right around the corner~~~~~ can't you hear it calling your name?  I can.
                                                                    This is me today:



me during spring break:


                                                                            me arriving back after spring break:

      BUT then after I am back and no longer in denial that it's over, here I am:                                                    


Spring Break is a beautiful thing.  And this a wonderful activity that your students will LOVE to do over spring break.  Since they LOVE Pete the Cat so much they love taking "Flat Cat" (same concept as Flat Stanley) with them on their fun filled spring break activities.  The best part is it keeps the little brain moving with all the great writing each day of where Flat Cat got to go.  The students arrive back the Monday after Spring Break so excited to tell you about where they took Flat Cat.  Check it out here.  It's one of my top 3 favorite activities the kids do each year.  Check out the great comments on TPT by other teachers that have use it and loved it!
7 more school days until our Spring Break!!

Computer Games


We recently were able to add a 2nd trip to the computer lab every week. We are super excited because now we can teach literacy one time and math the other. Now, we need ideas of websites the students can access during these times. Here are the ones we already use:
PBSKids
ABCYA
Starfall

What are some of your favorites that are also easy for the students to navigate?

Educents Bundle


I had the pleasure of previewing a portion of a new bundle on Educents. When I saw that it was a "Preschool Bundle", I wondered if there was anything my Kinders would be able to do without being bored this time of the year. There was! This is really a great looking bundle.











The Mega Sorting Bundle is what I had the privilege to review. It includes pictures sorts for alphabet and numbers 1-20. I love that it has the printables for the students to work individually along with larger pictures so the sorts can be completed whole group or as center work. This makes it so easy to put into centers because they already know what to do. Below are samples of the student pages. I have already printed the 11-20 pages for my teen number review lessons this week! I know my kids will love them!



This is just one of 19 great looking instant downloads you review with this purchase for only $29.99. Many items in this packet have been on my wish list. I hope you love it as much as I did!

Cyber Monday & Tuesday Sale


It is time for another CrAzY awesome TpT sale. You can get 28% off everything in our store on Monday & Tuesday! Below are some of the items we will be using in these last 3 (yes we said 3) weeks before Winter Break.
 We wrote to Santa last week asking for our own Scout Elf. We sure hope he sends us one this week! If so, we will be ready with some great literacy and math activities!
 Who doesn't love Gingerbread?!? Even though we are ready for Winter Break, we sure do wish there was more time to study all our Gingerbread!
These Literacy and Calendar Journals are in our top 2 things we have ever created. We always struggled with the beginning of the day. Different meaningful activities means lots of explanations every morning. Coloring sheets means no value! We created the Calendar Journals WAYYY before Literacy Journals. The Literacy Journals solved our meaningful morning activities problem. If you love these, make sure to look for the Bundles. It will save you even more money!
 Gingerbread or Polar Express? Hard to decide which we like better! Gingerbread are so much fun, but we love the sweet story of Polar Express.
 Winter study starts just barely before Winter Break. Our winter unit truly starts after the holidays in January.
This is our #1 selling item and our #1 item we have ever created. This has 5 activities (1 for each day of the week) for 18 different word families. We did these same activities before, but now the activities are kept to one 1/2 page book which saves on paper! We love saving paper!

We hope you will consider shopping with us during this wonderful sale. Now is time for us to weed through our wish list and decide what we will be buying! Happy Shopping!!
