I decided to link up with Jessica Tobin from the First Grade Nest to set resolutions for 2014. I really need to stay focused on my goals and not get overwhelmed by life in general:) That is my major goal for 2014!!!
little guy's 3rd birthday tomorrow! Where does time go? It seems like
yesterday he was an infant. Although I wouldn't go back now I almost
have him potty trained and I definitely wouldn't want to relive that
experience. Here is my adorable little guy who definitely keeps me on
I finally got my December word bank done! Snag it this afternoon through tomorrow night at a special "Firstie Friends" Gingerbread Hop:) Plus you will be able to fill up on a ton of other goodies if you follow the gingerbread trail.
I don't know about you guys but I loaded up on some awesome goodies at the TPT sale this week! Of course I loaded up on way more Melonheadz clip art then I should have!
I snagged a couple of awesome packs from Kristen Smith. I love her products!!
I snagged this awesome Christmas literacy pack from Sarah Paul!
I will be honest I own most of her store;) She is fab!!
I finally finished my Fry Phrases fluency pack which I have been working on since this summer. They were inspired by my blogging buddy Christina Wagers. I have used her sight word passages to work on fluency for the a year now and have been very pleased with the results. I did a post about her awesome passages here.
I needed something a little bit more challenging for my older students since I work with multiple grade levels so I have been working on using fry phrases to generate passages. This pack can be used as a six week intervention but it usually takes me longer to feel like my students are ready to be tested on the passage. I have found that "repeated readings" are a perfect researched based intervention for my students:)
My little guy is full of the Christmas spirit! When he sees Christmas lights he says, "It is Christmas at that house!" It definitely makes the holidays more fun to have a little elf full of cheer. We got the house all decorated this week so that we could have Christmas at our house! Yay!
I hope everyone has an awesome Sunday! Two weeks until Christmas break!!! Yay! I am excited to start some Christmas Around the World stuff this week. I am pumped about my new interactive notebook pack from Lisa Richling. I can't wait to use it. What is your favorite holiday pack? I would love to know;)
