Winter sound boxes!

Hi friends!

Have I told you that one of my favorite things about the Christmas season is ABC Family movies?! So, I have this favorite Christmas movie from my childhood that is about a mannequin from a department store coming to life and she starts to date the family's dad. (The mom had died previous to the beginning of the movie) Anyway.. I can NOT for the life of me figure out what movie it is. Any takers?! Anyone have a clue what movie it is?? I've Googled it and nada!

So we've begun the all the fun Christmas themed things I have in my classroom. My kids FINALLY got to read "Pete the Cat Saves Christmas" (they've been dying to read it since they discovered it on my shelf) and the lights and tree are up in my classroom! 

I like to change up the sound boxes I have in my teacher table. We're working *really* hard on stretching words out and listening to each sound in the word. My kids are getting really good at it thankfully and I've got some budding little readers at bay!

I created these little cute sound boards that will go along with Christmas or Winter themes for CVC and CCVC, CVCC words if you want to snag them up! {for free!}
We were working on the -it family, can you tell?! This was one of my favorite words that my kids came up with- ha! If only they knew!

I would love to know if you grab them! Hope you can use them in your class!



  1. I remember that! It's called "A Mom for Christmas."

  2. The sound boxes are so darling! I've never seen them decorated before!!

  4. Melinda's right...A Mom For Christmas. I had it taped on the VCR and Olivia Newton-John was the mannequin. Loved it!

  5. A Mom for Christmas! Such a great movie! Happy Holidays!

  6. We had the same problem last year trying to figure out the name of the movie. And we finally remembered it!!! But of course, now I can't for the life of me. I love that movie too, and I WILL FIND IT

  7. Ah, Michelle beat me to it, but I just found it on imdb...

  8. LOVE this! I just wrote a blog about using articulation boxes for parents when working at the very early stages of articulation...this activity is a GREAT supplement to that! I'm going to post that blog over the weekend or Monday morning so I am going to add a link to your page so parents can come here and read your post too! Great minds think alike! I love it!

  9. I love how you organize your letters in the little drawers! Very Cute!

  12. Thanks for the freebie!

  14. Soooooo cute! Can't wait to print out at school and use! Thanks!

  15. These are really cute! I see your box for letter tiles that you made. I also got one, but I don't have a good system for the kids to use it. They don't have the abc order yet so it takes them so long to find the letter they need. Then they forget what it is they are looking for as well as they don't know all the letters. So, how do you use it efficiently?


Thanks for taking the time to chat with me!
