First of all, I am completely horrified by the events that have unfolded today at Sandy Hook Elementary. Sick to my stomach. As a former kindergarten teacher, I cannot even fathom the events that took place. I can only pray for the students, families, staff, and law enforcement officers. As the news unfolds, it is only getting worse and more sickening. For someone to kill another person is horrific in itself, but for this to happen to such young and innocent children just gives me chills. Why? It makes no sense. The pattern of similar events in our country is just so sad. Sad that such deranged and sick people can do such terrifying things... in such a random manner. Give your kids some extra squeezes and love tonight, pray for the parents who received such devastating news today, and pray for our country. Something has to give.
Trying to change the vibe of this post will be hard, but I have a freebie ready for you.
Today's freebie is just in time for Christmas! If you're needing a fun, easy-prep activity for next week, then here's a Christmas version of "Roll & Graph". Just download, print, assemble the dice, make copies of the graph, and you're ready to go. Use it for math (graphing), vocabulary, or just for fun. I usually use this as a center with my EFL students. They LOVE it... and sometimes get a little carried away throwing the dice.
Just click the image below and download for FREE on TPT! :) If you download, then I would absolutely LOVE and appreciate your feedback. I got a lot of great feedback for the Thanksgiving version, so I decided to make this one.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving! We were blessed to be able to have an amazing turkey dinner with all the traditional sides. It was amazing and tasted just like home! I always forget what a coma I go into after eating all of it.
I know some of you are out partaking in the madness of Black Friday. I've done it a few times and honestly can't handle it. It drives me nuts. Some people are just out of control. There's no need for you to push, yell, and fight for a $5 sweater or parking space. I would say that the majority of people I've experienced during Black Friday are sane and have the same intentions as us (go out for fun, see if we can get some deals, not go crazy or cry if we don't), but those 5% of crazies can ruin it for the rest.. or just look like idiots. Hopefully you haven't run into any of those today. :)
Today, with the Christmas season upon us (today it's officially ok to have your tree up), I have some Christmas frames for you. I've included 6 frames with little bows in the corner. They match a lot of my other "stitched" Christmas items I've posted recently
. I hope you have fun with them! :) If you download, I'd LOVE to hear feedback or see how you can use them.
Alright, to all my American followers, get yourself a little power nap and get back out there to shop... or keep napping through your turkey-induced coma. Happy Friday everyone!
