Giving Thanks.... plus a freebie or two

It's been weeks.... ok... months since my last blog post.  I am really struggling with a balance and it is killing me.    How can it all be done?  Family, kids, life, work....  and work!  It seems that my class has been taking every single piece of energy out of me.  

I tend to lean on my Special Education support system, other special ed teachers from around the country.  It is comforting to know that I am not alone and they too struggle with balance.  

We are taking the time to give thanks to all of our loyal followers and supporters.   Today we are having a dollar deal.  

Today only (Sunday 11-15-2015) search #SPEDGivesThanks in the TpT search box and find all the deals to help you get through the next few weeks.

For $1.00 today I am offering some bright fresh math visuals. 
Bold bright colors to enhance your math lessons and show off math must haves. 

Just because I have been away from blogging for so long.  I wanted to you have something extra.  If you purchase the Gingerbread Mega Math Activities this weekend and download it by Monday night, you will get yourself an extra free resource within the bundle.  

If you made it this far you deserve a FREEBIE.... just because you are you and you are appreciated.

 ************ AND  Another FREEBIE ************

Fall activites still going strong here in the Northeast. 

xoxoxxo I will see you again before the year is over, I hope!

Summer Fun... Resource Updates.... and ummmmm....

For most of the summer months I was enjoying the simple life.  My husband and I, along with my parents went to visit MY 89 year old grandmother in Europe.  I brought my daughter to meet her one of her 3 living GREAT-Grandmothers!  It was an experience like non other.  But really how did we ever survive without WIFI and cell phones attached at our hands!  
Here are two photos of where I was for 4 weeks.  One road in and one road out.  Corn Fields and mountains as far as the eye can see.  Take a look at the picture on the right.  See that heart.... well that is my grandmothers house and I am standing on the beach!  Nothing like life with a view.  No traffic, no hustle... no bustle.  Just my family and mother nature.   
While I was living the simple life without WIFI I updated some products and created some new ones to use with my students this year.   

First revision is RHYME TIME PHONICS.    The revision added some new activities and more pages!  Like 20 more pages.   
A few day after  I got back my nephew joined me, completed some activities and earned himself a trip to the Lego store.  Although, he enjoys playing my activities and doing things for me.  He enjoys what happens after the best.  

If you made it all the way down here you might want to click on the preview... I'm just saying. ;)

So the nephew I was telling you about the one that went to the Lego store.  Well.... my sister in law is having a T-O-U-G-H time getting him to practice his sight words this summer.   So she called me!  Kids might be able to leave school... but when your aunt is a teacher, learning always creeps up.

SO I made him this.

His VERY OWN on the go..... I'm too cool for school word booklet.... 180 words!  I made him 15 and then just this week I agave him 10 more.  I made a multisensory word ring for him.  He can trace, write, erase and do it again!  He used wikki sticks, silly putty.... (I didn't even know that was still around), Washi tape to Trace.  Then he found my box of colorful Expo markers and went to town.   He was so happy with his book he showed his little league friend and I was making more.   With his permission I am selling the item in my store.

See all the fun a marker and book rings can create!  Another item kid approved.
Great thing about this is I am offering a customized word list unique for your needs, click HERE to find out how you can get your very own word list.  

If you need a BOOST to help get ready for back to school head over to my shop and see may sale.  Bundles are on sale too!  Don't forget the code MORE15

Currenty..... Lazy... Crazy Summer Days


I am linking up with Farley at Oh ' Boy 4th Grade

LISTENING  the to absolute silence..... My little 1 year old sleeping her little heart away!  Baby monitor humms 

LOVING that the laundry is completed and Day 2 of summer vacation is upon us! 

THINKING that I need to get packing for Vegas.  The exciting time to meet many people I "know" from cyberworld.  Packing for baby too that should be an adventure. 

WANTING time to slow down so I can enjoy the little.  

NEEDING a  long relaxing shower.... lunch..... and  a manicure wouldn't be so bad either!

All STAR  Yep... I am the all star procrastinator.  I make mental notes, map out how it goes and then forget about it, until the day before... stress..... and be crazy for 1 day!   Somehow, somewhere this all changed.  I was NEVER like this.  I always worked a little everyday until the day something was due.   I guess I was smarter back then.

Thank you for joining me this month.    My little sweetness, tush up in the air too...
Happy Summer!

If you want to join in on the CURRENTLY fun...... Join Farley
