Cyber Monday Sale... Started Early!!

Thanks Ashley for the super cute graphic!! I just love that Penguin stuffed in at the bottom (right where my diet coke goes!!) I am actually buying that penguin pack during the sale so I can start creating my next unit!! Yay!!

Everything in my store will be 20% off. Then, if you enter the code CMT12 at checkout (Monday and Tuesday), you will get an additional 8% off! That is 28% off all items :) This doesn't happen often so it is time to stock up!! I have been adding to my wish list all week!! (I found lots of great clip art too!)

I combined my Gingerbread Unit into one big COMBO Pack...



It is the Yummy Batch of Literacy Centers...



with the Yummy Batch of Gingerbread Math...



I also have my new Christmas Unit on sale...All Wrapped Up! There are plenty of centers to get you through the month of December!!



If you don't need the entire unit, I did split the crafts up into one pack. So you can get all the crafts for only $3 during the sale!! I have to get a couple of these crafts done during this week. I took down EVERYTHING in my class before Thanksgiving...now it is definitely time to redecorate! 



and if you already spent way too much money at the malls on Black Friday, then don't forget to download this new freebie...

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!! I am so thankful to all of you for even reading my blog and I am so thankful for all the friends I have made in the blogging world!

I have some units for December that I wanted to share with you because...THEY ARE ON SALE NOW!! Happy Black Friday!! :)

I also have a new freebie to share with you!! Just click on the picture below :)

I also LOVE finding new, great things on TPT!! So, I am super excited to shop on Cyber Monday!! I have already been adding things to my 'Wish List' so it will super easy for me to put them in my cart and checkout! Here are a couple of the things that I've got my eyes on...

I just found this cute winter unit from Erin at Creating and Teaching.  It looks adorable and perfect for some of my kinders!


Lyndsey from A Year of Many Firsts has an amazing looking Writer's Workshop pack! My school is BIG into writing this year and I love getting units that will support that...



Krissy from Mrs. Miner's Monkey Business has this super cute Gingerbread activity. I am doing a gingerbread unit in my class for the next 2 weeks so I definitely want to include this!!


Mary from Sharing Kindergarten just bundled all of her Laura Numeroff units into one! So fun!! Kids love these books! You can also check out all her mini units on these books :)


I am also going to get Tammy's January Dice Centers. I love these! and so do my kids! I already have her Christmas Dice Centers and I like to continue to give my students the same centers so they can complete them independently. 


and check out this awesomeness from Crystal at Kreative in Kinder...and it is all editable! Woah!


Happy Shopping!

Getting Ready for December!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

After Thanksgiving, my kindergarten team and I are going to spend two weeks on our gingerbread unit. Then, we are going to move into discussing the holidays before break!! I am super excited! Gingerbread is one of my favorites--my kids always have a blast reading and comparing the different books (and of course searching for the gingerbread man around school)!

I just re-did my entire gingerbread unit, A Yummy Batch of Gingerbread Math! If you've already purchased this from me, just head back over to TPT and download it again under 'My Purchases.' I updated some of the pages, made sure everything fits into Common Core (with the exception of the pattern activity), and I added in the cutest little gingerbread glyph!!


You can check out the whole unit by clicking below :)


I also added a brand new unit, Math, Literacy, Crafts, And More...All Wrapped Up!!


A couple people have emailed me asking if I would include the Christmas craftivities in a separate pack for them to purchase, so I will be working on that as soon as I beat my family in a game of cornhole ;)

Sight Word Fun!


I found the cutest sight word pack from Kristin over at A Teeny Tiny Teacher! 

Click on the photo to check out Kristin's pack!
I have always done sight word folders with my students, but I was never totally organized with it! This pack makes it SO easy for me! It came with a great parent letter to send home explaining the process (which I LOVE by the way). The students will start out by reading all the lists; then, when they are finished with all 30 lists, they will go back and spell the words. I was doing both reading and spelling at the same time---umm hello? Why didn't I think of doing it this way!! The pack also comes with a super cute 'Congratulations' certificate when the students finish and a great organizer for me to track student progress.


I gave all the students new sight word folders. Each time they get a 100% on their list, they earn a sticker to decorate their folder. They are loving this!


How do you do your sight words??

Hope everyone had the chance to get out and VOTE today :)

I just wanted to quickly let you know that I am spending my day adding to my November Unit.  I have already added over 20 pages this morning and will continue to do so throughout the rest of the day/week. (I am also working on adding some craftivities!)

Make sure to head over to TPT, click on 'My Purchases' and re-download the unit if you already purchased it :)

Thanks!!!


I added these cute little guys too! But, if you don't want to purchase the entire November unit, you can find the Pilgrims HERE as well :)

Currently!


So I watch a ton of reality t.v...and the housewives (yep all of them) are some of my many shows! Gotta love it!! 
I can't, can't, can't wait til' Thanksgiving break! We only get the Thursday and Friday off, I wish we had the entire week, but I am still thankful that I have time to fly up to the mountains and spend some time in the NICE, FALL weather!!! Woo-hoo. This south Florida heat is killing me!!
I have class tomorrow from 8:30-3:30..that is awful...obviously!
I would love a HUGE glass of chocolate milk right now! Anyone going to the store? ;)
I have been SO busy every weekend and I work way too much during the week...unfortunately, my house has been neglected. I need to spend an entire day cleaning it!! But, I am just so tired!! How do you guys find the time!?
Lastly, I always play the baby einstein classical music c.d during our 'quiet work' times. The children love it and so do I!! But in real life, I am totally loving the Lumineers, Fun, and Phillip Phillips...they always make it onto my playlist :) If you don't know their songs..check them out!! You will love it!

Don't forget to link up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her November Currently linky party!!
