New Facebook Page and a Freebie

I started a Facebook page this weekend for Really Reading. I usually consider myself fairly tech savy.  But after trying numerous times to get the tabs right, I realized this was much more complicated than I had expected. I now have the tabs, but things still aren't the way I want. I guess I'll have to spend more time Googling how to do this! 

You can check out the new Facebook page here. I hope you'll stop by and say hi and like the page. You can also grab my first Facebook freebie.

Math Testing Treats and May is on the Way!

I can't believe May is almost here.  We are definitely in the home stretch: third quarter report cards have gone home, math tests are this week, and the calendar will soon say May.  Where did the year go?

With our state math assessments coming up this week, I'm getting ready to make some treats for my son's class.  I really love how these labels turned out.  I thought my Rock the Test labels were my favorites, but these came out just like I had envisioned.

If you have math tests coming up, you may want to check them out in my TpT store.  You can find them here.

Earth Day Freebie!

Today is my last day of spring break.  I'm happy for the extra day that we go from not using all our snow days.  It's supposed to be sunny and beautiful.  I'm looking forward to getting a little last minute yard work done.  All in all it was a great break.  I know my oldest was a bit sad that it was a staycation and not a trip to Florida like his buddy took.  However, I think oldest made out okay with Lego Club and a sleepover at Grandma's, a trip to his favorite Red Robin, fun at Billy Beez, a play date with one of his buds, a movie and sleepover at Grandma's, and of course our annual egg hunt on Easter.  He managed to fit quite a bit into his 11 days off.

His brother was just happy to hang out.  I think this picture from the egg hunt says it all.  

I just wanted to highlight a freebie I have in my store for Earth Day.  It is a graphic organizer that works great as a springboard for an Earth Day writing activity.  It looks like this.

You can download it in my TpT store.  While there you can follow me to make sure you learn about new releases.  You can also visit this post to enter my $10 TpT gift certificate giveway.

New Products and A Giveaway

I know it's been forever since I updated my blog.  I do have several new products I'd like to highlight today. My latest is a Truck Themed Sound Box and CVC Mat Set.

 Truck Sound Boxes

My kindergarten students love anything that has to do with vehicles, so this new set is a big hit.  It's great for practicing segmenting, blending, and encoding cvc words.  It comes with a mat, 40 cvc picture cards, and a recording sheet.

My next new product is a bundle of vocabulary pages for lessons 11-15 of the fifth grade Journeys series. You can find them in my TpT store.

 Fifth Grade Unit 3 Bundle
