Countdown Until Winter Break FREEBIE

Last night I caught myself opening up my calendar and for the first time counting how many days we had left until our winter break.  Can you believe it?!  Of course you can, you are probably feeling my pain too and if not, you will soon.  November was so broken up with conferences and Thanksgiving break that the few weeks we have until our next break seems way too long.  Don't get me wrong, I love my job but with my group of kiddos this year I am living for the breaks.  I need every break I can get to re-energize for these kiddos.

I am sure as much as I am looking forward to the break my kiddos are as well.  To cut down on the amount of times I will be asked, or just for shear cuteness I created this countdown to winter break poster.  Click {HERE} to download.

I have to admit, it's pretty simple, but pretty cute too!


p.s. If you haven't commented on my post below, do that before Friday to have a chance to win my Winter Games and Printables packet!  Right now your chances are high!

What I'm Up To

A few weeks ago, well the beginning of November, I participated in the What the Teacher Wants, Utah bloggers meet up.  Let me just tell you, I am soooo glad that I decided to go.  It was a Saturday and our first big snow and so everything about me wanted to stay snuggled up in my pjs all day but as it got closer to the meeting time I decided I better go.  It was so great to meet some of the big Utah bloggers, bloggers to be and teachers that just love blogs!  We met at The Old Spaghetti Factory and chatted for over 3 hours!  We talked about anything and everything teacher and of course blogging came up.  I had the privilege to sit next to the wonderful Teacher Wife.  She is amazing!  We got to talking about blogging and where I was in that process as well as selling my items.  If you've been around, you know I pick and poke at blogging and post my stuff when I can.  I'm not really much of a writer and I think that's what keeps me from posting as often as I would like.   Truth be told, I really wish that I would sit down and blog more because not only do you, my fellow teacher friends benefit, but I do as well.  It's a great way to keep a log and ideas fresh and who knows, I may just start to enjoy writing!

Anyways...I say all that to say, I am committing to blogging more often, hopefully once a week and.......
last week I opened a Teachers Pay Teachers store!  I was so inspired by Rachelle and Natalie at What The Teacher Wants and Linsey "The Teacher Wife" so I thought I would give it a go.  I already create so much for my own classroom and this gives me incentive to create even more.

With that said, check out my Teachers Pay Teachers Store by clicking on the link under picture below to check out the items I've posted already (I've got to figure out how to link my pictures I guess!).  I even have some FREE stuff up!

Just added today is my Winter Games and Printables Packet for $4.00!

Leave a comment telling me how you found me and what you like reading about the most on other teacher blogs or what you would like to see me post about in the future and I will give away my Winter Games and Printables Packet to 2 people on Friday!

Thanksgiving Printables

I have been way behind on posting lately due to parent teacher conferences, personal commitments and my battle with switching out all of my clip art (post on that coming soon!).

I wasn't going to post the few things that I had since most of you probably only have 2 or 3 days of school left before Thanksgiving but incase you still need something to do this week or if you want to save them for next year I will share.

The first thing I have is a poem, "5 Little Turkeys" that you can use in a pocket chart.

Five Little Turkeys Emergent Reader

Counting Feathers math worksheets.

I hope you can use these at some point.

*Edit: I am so sorry to those of you who have been trying to download.  No idea why my links stopped working all of the sudden.  I have grouped everything together and put them on TPT for FREE.  Go get your pack now!

Thanks for stopping by!  Please comment if you download something or have any questions.
