Updates, a giveaway, and a freebie!

This is going to be a very long and very random post.  There are a lot of little things I want to share with everyone so forgive my randomness!

I'm so excited to have a 4 day weekend this weekend.  I was hoping to be much more productive today but I spent most of the day playing around on Pinterest, Facebook, other blogs, and TpT and TN.  I was super excited to share a new item with all of you today but TpT is doing some updates and I want to include that link so it'll have to wait.  AAAAHHHHH!  No matter how many times I've obsessively refreshed the product page, it's still not open.

I also want to celebrate. I've reached 50 followers and 5,000 hits in less than 2 weeks!!!  I'm so excited!  This has become a new little obsession of mine and I'm so glad that others are enjoying it as well.  I've loved all of the sweet comments from everyone.

I created a Facebook page for my blog!!!  You can "like" it on my sidebar or find it on FB the next time you're there.  I'm trying to learn the contest rules on there because I'm thinking of giving away a few items to my followers there.  As soon as I figure that all out- you all will be the first to know.  You can find a direct link here.

I created a collaborative Pinterest board called Centers and Small Groups.  If you haven't noticed, most of what I create (which of course goes along with how I teach) is made for small group work.  This way, students practice skills while you have time to meet with groups or conference with students.  That board is here.  If you are interested in being able to pin to that board comment with your username below---but keep reading before you do!

I'm also going to be doing my first giveaway!!!!  Since I've expanded to so many places I want to make sure people know where to find me.  I will select 3 winners who can choose any item from my stores.  So, here's how you can enter.
1. Follow my blog.  I'm sure every single one of you readers already follows me though ;)
2. "Like" me on Facebook
3. Follow me on Pinterest
Enter a comment on this post for each entry.  The giveaway ends on Sunday 2/19 at 6 pm central time.  If you want to include your Pinterest username with your comment that you follow me, that'll help save my inbox a bit :)

And, finally, as a thank you for reading this entirely too long post, I've decided to give you a different freebie than I had originally planned.  These are phonics terms I used with my students.  I found that giving them a cute saying helped kids remember them.  Click the picture to download it.



Thank you again for all of the love!

  24. I love your "Chunks" page. Thank you so much for the freebie. I think there might be a little mistake on it though. I think you meant "hear" instead of "here."
