Five for Friday.
1. My Friday Freebie
Snow Buddies Sound Box set. This set would be perfect for literacy centers, small group instruction, or RTI.
2. My January Currently
I am soooooo tired of the ringing in my ears! I'm on week 4 of some miserable flu/virus/bronchitis type illness. I know I'm not alone in my misery ~ I've heard that this ailment is very difficult to kick. Which, is why I really wouldn't mind an extra day of Christmas break. Yes, I know we will have to make it up, but one more day to try to get better would be a blessing!
We put up five (Yes, 5) trees and lots of decorations. It takes about a week to get everything up, and just about as long to take everything down. I really need to start un-Christmasing my house. I did go into school yesterday and took down Christmas decorations in my classroom.
This was the first Christmas without my mom (Dad's been gone for five years). It was difficult, but I have great memories of her at Christmas. We did get together with my siblings and their families for Christmas ~ we had fun playing a Wasemann Family Trivia game. It's good knowing that our memories will go on.
3. I'm part of a new blog! I was so excited when I was asked to be an author of Who's Who and Who's New. The blog will feature a daily post by different teachers about lots of interesting topics.
4. My new Hibernation mini unit.
The first week back in January will be spent with lots of review (both skills and procedures). There are a few things to finish up so I can complete my report cards. I also want to do a mini unit on hibernation, so I made this set. Click HERE if you are interested in purchasing it.
5. Winter Wonderland! Here are some pictures of what my yard looked like this morning.
