Winter Wonderland, Letter Work and a Giveaway

Hey Ya'll!  I hope you all had a great holiday! Our's was very busy!
We had so much fun!  I don't know if all zoos have a festival of lights, but the Houston Zoo really did it up BIG! It was SO cold (which hardly ever happens in Houston) the night we decided to go that we had to bundle up!  I think that getting all bundled up made us feel more like it was Christmas time than normal! We loved it!  I wish this was a field trip option!

We don't go back to school for another 10 days! But I have been very busy working on some alphabet intervention activities ( Now I Know My Alphabet) and a blend booklet.  Here is a little sample of the alphabet intervention packet that I have made.  It is over 120 pages of engaging activities!  The first two followers who leave their email in the comment section get a free copy!

I have also been using the Babbling Abby's Kindergarten RTI: Letter Recognition packet from TpT!  It is also a great intervention tool!

This is how I have been using it!

We have also been working on solving word problems that are winter related and making cute little arctic animals!  These are part of my Winter Wonderland Unit...the first two followers to comment specifically that they want this one will get a free copy! This is a mini thematic unit that is common core aligned...

Some students are also working on multiplication...which is something I have never had to teach!  So I have made a little packet on mulitplication...

I also get the pleasure of working pretty closely with our VI teacher!  She is awesome!  Here is the "edible" craft she brought to our class!

Have you decided what your New Year's Resolution will be?  I am working/thinking so hard what I want mine to be...I really want to follow through this year!  Last year it was to do Crossfit...I committed to that until September...hopefully I can do better this year!
  I know one of my resolutions will to be a better blogger! 
Happy Holidays! Enjoy your time off!

Winter Wonderland Activities...with a lil' picture tour

Wow!  I have been so busy...(who isn't this time of year?)! I have been working on so many fun projects for the classroom!  I want to share them with you.  So here is a lil' picture tour...

This is another one of my sensory sorting boxes and the recording sheet...this was so much fun!  They also graphed it! I Love integrating subjects! I got the little holiday manipulatives at Hobby Lobby!

We have been very busy deciphering word problems and finding different ways to solve them!  They are really diggin' this! And I am too...I love getting to integrate writing and math!
I tried to make the subtraction bowling a little more exciting...I made snowmen to attach to them!

I made little penguin games and recording sheets for addition and subtraction...we used the little white pom-poms as the manipulatives!
We made a snowman craftivity with their names...and then we graphed it as a class and recorded it individually!
We worked with our cvc word matching and recorded them!  This was fun for me to watch! 
And finish off this little tour of pictures...isn't this a lil' cutie??  I made it...and I am proud (the husband let me use a REAL POWER TOOL...a sander)!  It is an old school desk that I painted
turquoise with a chalk board painted top!  Love!  I just think that color is SO stinkin' adorable!
OH yeah...when we get to 50 followers we will have a little sweepstakes!  You guys are so awesome!  I have loved seeing all of your comments and checking out some of your blogs!  I am so thankful for all of you for checking out my blog!
