Hoping for a snow day and a Homework Pack

Hey friends. I know several of you all have been asking...when will your Feb. homework pack be finished?! While, I tend to work better under pressure and procrastination is my middle name.....Katie and I want you to know, we had the pack posted last night - and with 1 day to spare before Feb!  How's that for a timely manner? I'm rather proud of us, because usually it's the day of! ha Anyways, this month's packet is packed with GREAT activities. You'll find themes that include: Groundhog Day, President's Day, Dental Health, Valentine's Day, and much more. Our pack is normally $8 but because we appreciate your patience and your continued support (not to mention, we love ya'll)'s marked down to $6 through this weekend. Here's a sneak peek of what to expect...
As always, we appreciate your positive feedback and wonderful suggestions. We have been so pleased with how these have gone over and have had fun putting them together. Hop on over to Katie's store and check it out. If you've not implemented these in your classroom, this month would be a great time to start! Here's hoping for a snow day tomorrow...I'm off to flush an ice cube and place a spoon under my pillow!! ;)

Hey friends. Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break. I know many of you are going back today for the first time today - jealousy!! My school system has been at it for 4 days now...we went back last Wednesday (Jan. 2nd)! Here is a pic for you...from a crazy party animal! 
Usually with the new year comes a new outlook. Are you approaching the school year with change in mind? Trying something new from now until the end of the year?  Maybe some of you have decided that you were going to challenge your students a little more while outside of the classroom. Have you ever thought about weekly homework packs? If so, I've got your answer! This packet was created by 2 Kindergarten teachers with 2 different there is lots of variety and ideas! This is the fifth homework pack in a series of monthly packs to reinforce your students' skills throughout the year.
This packet includes:
~Weekly homework calendars (5 weeks included) that lay out which activities should be completed each night. (There are 5 different calendar options that give you choices on how many assignments you require your students to complete each week.)
~A January Family project
~Response sheets for your students to complete for each activity

Look like fun?? Then, please check out our January pack posted in Katie's store! There is a new family project and of course, a skill to work on for each day of the month that are all presented in fun ways. Thanks for looking. I promise I'll be back this week with some fun posts and a giveaway. One of my new year's resolutions is to not be such a slacker blog woman! ha Happy Monday!!
