I decided I'm going to 'kill two birds with one stone' tonight!
So…lets get started!
My favorite holiday tradition growing up was going out to eat for my Dad's birthday (Christmas Eve), going to church, and then opening ONE present! I know that it's what most people do as part of the holiday 'routine' but I loved knowing that's what we were going to do every year and that every year was going to be even better. The anticipation of what's to come made it all the more exciting!
My favorite tradition now is watching Christmas Vacation every Thanksgiving (or closest day to) with my mom. We're adding a drinking game to the mix this year, so it outta get interesting! :)
My teaching favorite tradition is Cyber Monday shopping at TPT! I'm not kidding you. I get so excited to stock up my 'wish list' with as many goodies as I can and use up all my TPT Feedback points to add to the already awesome discount! I love it. Here are some of the goodies I snagged tonight. I already have a couple more items I just added to my cart. Ready to purchase more tomorrow (gotta see what other goodies people found, might need to add it to my cart too)!
I love everything that Deedee creates! I've had her Overhead Station packet on my wish list for awhile now and after getting my hands on an overhead right before Thanksgiving break, I've been itching to click 'purchase.'
Kristen Smith has an amazing Main Idea packet that I can not wait to use! I won't be diving deep into main idea until January and this packet as a lot of nonfiction arctic animal stories that correlate with different activities that focus on the main idea.
I also got this Guided Reading Task Card packet from Tara West and another amazing RTI packet from Hello Literacy!
And, even though I already have a ton of literacy and math centers correlated with our Christmas themed, I HAD to get Abby's A Very Kinder Christmas pack!
It does not disappoint either! :)
I can't wait to see what you got! Think I might need it too? Let me know about any must haves! :)
Link up, too.
