My Teacher is Having a Baby ~ FREEBIE

A friend told me when you go past your due date and haven't had your baby, it's like this: You wait months and months for Christmas to come, but when it does but you don't get any presents.  She was RIGHT!!!  While I'm sitting at home anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first baby, I put together this little freebie to share with you.  It has fun activities for your class to make predictions about a new addition to your family, and for students to write about how to take care of a baby.  I included versions for families who are adopting (infants and older children).  I hope you can use it or know someone who can.  I can't wait to see what my class has predicted and their advice on how to take care of a baby!

Long Vowels and a SUPERBOWL SALE!

Hi everyone!  I can't believe it's already Superbowl time.  My favorite thing about Superbowl? The party munchies!!!  There's something about that one day of all those delicious finger foods that makes my mouth water days in advance.  While I usually go over to one of my sister's houses for a party, this year we are staying home.  So for fun let me share the secret to my Superbowl food success - guacamole mix.  I've tried several mixes and most are pretty good.  I favor the ones that are labeled "spicy" for that extra kick.  Add 2 avocados and about 1/4 cup sour cream and it is like a piece of heaven I tell you.  If you like guacamole give it a try!  You can find the mixes in the produce section at most supermarkets. (Sorry for going on, I just realized as I write this that I'm really hungy!)

Aside from the food, there is a NEW reason to love Superbowl Sunday - in honor of Superbowl Sunday I am joining up with Tpt's Superbowl Sale!  This Sunday all items in my store will be 20% off plus an extra 8% off when you enter the code: SUPER at checkout. Here are a few of my latest units you may want to check out.  They are all activity packs focused on the magic e pattern for long vowels.  Click on the pictures to get the details on my Tpt store.

Here are a few pics from the Long I and A units in action!
