Wintry Weather Fun!

Hi friends!

I've really been trying to savor the time I have off! Doesn't it always go by so fast?! We have a chance of snow tonight so we might just be stuck inside tomorrow! I've spent a lot of quality time with my 2 little ones and now I'm *just* about ready to send them back to school ;)

I created some Winter Math and Literacy Stations finally! I've been using Ella as a little guinea pig again. A lot of it is too difficult for her, but she tries really hard and some of it is right up her alley!
{click picture to take you there}

I'm offering this page as a freebie- if you go to the product description then click "Download preview" you will be able to snag this page- super easy center and my kids love then!

Here's Ella's completed page:
Also- I know most of you *probably* know this trick, BUT in the case that you didn't... I'm going to share with you. Did you know that you can create pockets for yourself with just a little glue and lamination??

In my winter pack, I have a mug vowel sort- all you have to is print and cut the mugs, trace them onto another paper and then glue the edges together like a frame. THEN run it through the laminator and use your scissors or an Exacto (careful not to push too hard!) and slice through the top layer to open up the pocket. Obviously, this could be done with any 2 pieces of paper glued together. Easy peasy pocket!
So head on over and snag these up- they're on sale for $6.50 through the weekend only! Leave your name and email address in the comments (tell me your favorite thing to do in winter!)  and I will pick 3 winners to receive this pack tonight! I will choose at 9pm central time!

  12. Thanks for sharing the pocket trick! My favorite thing to do in winter is to build snowmen with my two year old. When I was younger it was definitely to go sledding on the huge mound of snow that was plowed in front of my parent's house.

  21. My favorite winter activity is watching my kids go sledding. I am a chicken and scared to death to do it myself. However just watching my kids faces makes the cold weather worth it. I can't get enough of them smiling!!
