It's that time again! Time to swap products with a blog friend in the Magical Product Swap
, hosted by Mrs. Stanford's Class. This time I was able to partner with Heidi of My (Not So) Elementary Life
. She is such a sweetheart. I just LOVE her products.
For the review, I received Heidi's Learning In a Winter Wonderland
. It's a pack with 10 literacy centers, aimed at K-1 students. Here are some of my favorite aspects of the pack:
- The content is awesome. 10 literacy centers! All I have to do is print, laminate, and cut. Voila!
- 92 pages ($6.00 on TPT... pretty sweet deal)
- It's beautifully made. No clip art squishing, everything matches, and it's so stinkin' cute.
- She includes blackline worksheets for students.... only the things that are meant to be laminated are in color! Hallelujah!
- All the activities are easy to understand, include clear directions (and answers), and are totally fun and engaging.

I thought I'd give you a little video tour so you can see how awesome it is for yourself.
Since Heidi and I swapped sort of late in the game (like literally two days ago), I didn't get a chance to print and laminate everything yet. I did pick two that I thought I'd try out this week! Here are some photos:
I like to store my centers in 9x5.5 plastic bags. I can fold the recording sheets in half and stick the pieces in.... and SEE everything! :)
The "Beginning Sound" activity
The cards are nice, large, and the graphics print beautifully!
Heidi's "Real or Nonsense" word activity
Ice chunks with the words... they're about 2in x 2in. I love that she includes so many cards. You can adapt it for a shorter activity if you want! Or how about an assessment? :)
Recognize that polar bear? ;) Also, check out that hack job on the corner. I swear I couldn't cut a rounded corner to save my life. I bought one of those cutter things, but can't find it.
I played along. :) Love it!
Getting fancy with the camera angles. Haha.
So what do you think? Something you could use?! I love it and will definitely get some use out of it in the coming weeks. If I was still teaching K, then I'd honestly use the heck out of all of them. They are perfect for K-1! :)
Head on over to Heidi's blog
to check her out... or better yet, head on over to TPT
and grab yourself a copy of this! You'll love it. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go and check out all the other product swaps on Mrs. Stanford's link up
! There are a TON of great reviews. Maybe you'll find something new. :)
Thanks to The 3AM Teacher for the button!
This is an adorable and easy project my kids did during a short penguin unit (Winter time of course). Seriously. How cute are these little guys?!
This was a center during the week and I posted student-level directions for them to follow. The document has teacher directions and student-level ones. Click to download !
Here's a really cute penguin game/printable for math:
