The Polar Express Day

This week has been full of fun with my littles..and like many other weeks I'm feeling very blessed. Blessed to have a job that I love, blessed to have a family that I adore...and blessed to have the life that I have..I'm one of the lucky ones..and for that I'm very thankful.
The past few days have been a whirlwind of fun activities, we've had The Polar Express Day, Grinch Day, and today my littles visited 4 countries in one day...talk about being busy! It's been crazy and hectic..but oh so fun!
Take a look at what we've been up to...
Vocabulary from my free teeny mini-unit.
Tickets and sequencing activity from Katie's fabulous unit.
Inferencing activity from the super sweet Sarah.
We ended our day with The Polar Express movie...my kiddos were in love!
I can truly say that we had a blast with these awesome activities...I'm so glad that we're having tons of fun before our winter break..because you know how it is..once January is here we hit the ground running! ;)
As a little gift to all of you, I've created this fun little unit..and I'm posting it for free at my TpT store..I hope y'all enjoy!
I'm linking up with DeAnne over at First Grade and Fabulous for her Holiday Picture Book Linky Party.
I'll be back this week with pictures of our cute Grinch activities and of course our Holidays Around the World day too..until next time..toodles!

Deck the Halls

Are visions of sugarplums dancing in your head yet? ;)
I love this time of year! It's magical...but hectic! I'm trying to fit in as many things as I can before winter vacation..and I think I have overplanned...again! Uggghhh! So many things to do...so little time.
My firsties love the little mini-books I have been making for them..they love reading them..and that makes my heart happy. So I had to come up with a new little unit to include our newest mini-book...thus Deck the Halls was created..a fun literacy and writing unit made just for little learners.
a peek inside
The unit includes vocabulary, mini-book, graphic organizers, writing activities, and 3 literacy centers...everything you need to teach your little bitties.
At the moment it's on sale at my TpT store...{$2.50} but hurry...it will only be this price for the first 24 hours.
But since 'tis the season for giving..the first 3 people to comment with a RAK they are planning will be receiving this unit free of charge...don't forget to leave your email addy...I'll be emailing y'all tomorrow...because it's way past my bedtime...toodles! ;)
