Snowmen, Winter, and MORE!

What day is it?

That's right.... winter break has me not knowing (or caring!) what day it is!  Although I do know it ends in t-minus 5 days!  Then it's back to work for the second half of the school year!

I am sure many of you have heard about the horrible storms that passed through North Texas Sunday evening.  We had nine confirmed tornadoes, ranging from EF-0 to EF-4 in damage.  Many friends have lost everything and are having to pick up the pieces day by day.  One of the tornadoes missed our home by about 5 miles (an EF-3) and the largest tornado passed by about 20 minutes from our home.  Definitely thankful and blessed I have a roof over my head right now.  My thoughts and prayers are definitely with everyone right now!

With Christmas break in full swing, teachers never really stop working (do we?).  I have been planning and prepping for January for the last week now and wanted to share some of my newest products with you!

Let's start with the next installment to my Guided Reading for Kindergarten bundle!  

These activities are center-like activities that can be used in small groups or even independent learning stations.  Here is a look at what is included in the January bundle:'
