TpT and Treasures Reading Units

I hope everyone enjoyed Cyber Monday shopping today!  Remember that there are still a few hours to purchase my units at 20% off and then the TpT 10% off.

For those of you that look for units on TpT.....I have a question for you.  What would you like to see in the units?  I am trying to get an idea for what sells the best and is most wanted.  If you are a first grade teacher that is looking for the Treasures Reading Units - is there something in particular that you want me to try to include?  I am really wanting to create items that will sell good because I plan on using this money to go to helping my son while he is away at college.  Thanks in advance for your comments.

I pray that each of you have a good week back at school.  I know it is now the countdown to Christmas...and I am the first to admit that I really need it.  Today was my roughest day at school yet!  Let's just say there are issues in my class and the only thing I know to do is pray that God hold my hand and protect me each day as I enter my classroom door.

Winter Fun Unit and Treasures Reading Unit

I spent most of today finishing up the two units that I had planned on posting this weekend on Teachers Pay Teachers.  The first unit is my Winter Fun Unit.  This unit has four games and a few writing activities.  Below you will see a few pages from this unit.  If you are interested in it, please click on the first picture and it will take you to it.

The next unit that I completed was a Treasures Reading Series Unit 4, Week 2 - June Robot Cleans Up.  This is a 1st Grade Unit.  Below are a few pages from it.  Click on the first picture if you would like to get it.

I have really enjoyed my Thanksgiving Holidays.  Tomorrow I have to send my oldest son back off to college.  He will not be back until the end of the semester.  I have really enjoyed having him home and spending quality time with him!  After he leaves tomorrow, I guess I will look and try to finish up my lesson plans for this week and mentally prepare myself for the week.

New Adventure on Teachers Pay Teachers

I have pondered and went back and forth on whether or not to start making units/activities to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers.  My teammate at school, Courtney, over at has been doing a wonderful job making units to go with our Treasures Reading Series for 2nd Grade.  I sat down today and put my first unit together.  Since Courtney is doing 2nd Grade, I thought I would try my hand at a 1st Grade Treasures Unit.  Below are just a few pictures of the unit.  If you are interested in purchasing it, please click on the pelican below to go to it.

I am working on the 1st Grade Unit 4, Week 2 next.  I am also working on a Christmas Unit.  If there is anything you would like to see on TeachersPayTeachers, let me know and maybe I can attempt it.  There are so many wonderful teachers and sellers - I hope to be as successful at this as them.

I am at 26 Followers - I am planning a giveaway when I get to be on the watch :)

I hope you each had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Black Friday!

I've Been MIA and My First Freebie

Wow - I am not finding the time to blog like I had thought I would. I have two days this week at school and then I'm off for five days. I can't wait because my son is coming home from college. He is a freshman this year and I have really never been away from him until now. He is going to a college a few hours away and I'm missing him something terrible.

I have put together some activities to do one day this week based on the book Turkey Trouble by: Wendi Silvano. I am giving it away as a freebie. I hope you enjoy my first creation.

I hope you each have a very wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving!
