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.
