12 Days of a Teacher's Christmas Starts today!

Hey friends!! I hope y'all have enjoyed your Thanksgiving Break. I definitely ate my fair share of goodies and watched a TON of football. I actually got to go to the Texas game and it was AWESOME!! (Sorry Marcy!) ;) 

I've also been busy getting our Christmas decorations up and working on some new units. I'm also SO excited to announce that today is the first day in a fabulous blog hop put on by yours truly and 12 other bloggers! I'm posting this a little after midnight on December 1...I was really excited and had to get a jump on it! We are getting together to bring you 12 days of FREEBIES in addition to several chances to win some fabulous prizes. Here's a peak at some of the prizes:

Wow! That's exciting. We will be picking 13 winners for the 13 units. In addition, 1 lucky winner will receive a TpT gift card to purchase whatever they want, 1 winner will get a brand new pencil sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies and 1 winner will receive a $25 Target gift card. Woo hoo!! 

We are thankful that Classroom Friendly Supplies donated to our give-a-way! They were nice enough to send a brand new, red pencil sharpener for my friend Hannah to use in her classroom. I love that they come in several colors! She chose red to go with her Dr. Seuss theme. This is what she told me about the pencil sharpener:

"I have never used a sharpener that works as well as this one! The pencils are super sharp, and they never come out with that weird, non-lead side.  Once I taught my students how to pinch the clips, it was super easy for them to use. Thankfully, it doesn't eat up the whole pencil like an electric sharpener does when students try to use it!" - Hannah C, Kindergarten Teacher.

All you have to do to enter is follow our blogs and Facebook pages. There are 13 bloggers, so I know that's a lot of clicks! Luckily the contest ends December 12th at midnight. So you have plenty of time to get your clicks in!

Now for the freebie!! I had a lot of positive feedback on my spin, read and color pages. I've added four more pages for your holiday literacy center needs! Most of the words are from the Dolch preprimer list. I've added some other words that a friend of mine requested.

You can pick the file up here. Make sure you visit Sarah's blog post today as well. We are sharing day one. Sarah will be offering up a fabulous freebie for y'all as well!
