Just a quick post tonight to announce a lil' FLASH FREEBIE!  

I love the sight word game BOOM and until now I had just been mixing in some BOOM cards with the sight word cards that I already had.  (Which were plain and boring and did NOT match my BOOM cards.  And of course, that just won't do!)

This game includes the Dolch Pre-Primer, Primer, First, and Second Grade lists.

So snag it while it's FREE!






And, if you already own my Word Work Activities, I have updated them to include this game!  If you don't already own it… now would be a good time to buy it!  With the addition of the Sight Word BOOM game the price will be going up tomorrow!


Ah, the weekend.  And a new month.  And more snow.  Well, two out of three isn't bad!!  Time to kick off the month with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade and share my week with a Sunday Five for Friday at Doodle Bugs Teaching.


Listening - It is snowing.  Again.  I'm beginning to think that the sound of the plow is NEVER going to go away.  I know I live in Syracuse, but this is getting ridiculous!  I'm very afraid that I will be blogging about snow in April's Currently, too.  EEK!

Loving - Well, I squeezed the February budget and scraped up the money to buy my new camera bag.  I am in LOVE.  It is beautiful… and roomy… and chevron of course!  So excited about this purchase!  It's a purse and camera bag all in one.  Want one?  Check out Darby Mack Designs.  They have a TON of styles and my bag came in less than two weeks, even though it was on back order!  I highly recommend them.


Thinking - Sun and spring will happen… right?!

Wanting - I bought a lifetime license for KG Fonts during the big TPT sale!  So psyched to start using all her fonts.  I had been scraping by a with one-font license here and there, but now I have carte blanche to use all her fonts, all the time.  I feel like a real big shot now.  Let the creative juices flow!!

Needing - I need nothing.  What a good feeling!

????? - 45 days.  I have been reading others' posts and this is a really tough one on most people's blogs!  I'll give you a hint…





Okay, now onto my week.  We returned after a nice, long week off for February break.  Everyone was grumpy on Monday morning, haha.  And I think this is the first week we have had school for five straight days, with no days off or snow days.  Wow.  Good thing we made it count!


This week we celebrated our 100th Day!  I kept it simple and we celebrated with a hat.  Love me some hats on first graders.  These 100th Day Ten Frame Party Hats came from Kelly Dolling at Teacher Idea Factory.





This week we worked on place value.  We use base-10 blocks to count the days we've been in school, so the kids have a lot of background knowledge by the time we get to place value in math.  Here we are playing Place Value Top-It.




It's been forever since we've practiced sight words on our iPads.  This week we worked on the First Grade Dolch sight word list using the app Word Bingo.



Stop the presses.  I actually got a bulletin board prepped and ready in plenty of time for the upcoming holiday.  Gasp.  This NEVER happens.  Bulletin boards are not my thing!  I'm proud that on Friday I was able to put this up.  Aren't these leprechaun's adorable?  This Leapin' Leprechaun craftivity is a creation from Teri at A Cupcake for the Teacher.


If I were a leprechaun I would go to the other side of the rainbow to steal gold and go steal some diamonds.



This week I was a WINNER!  I won $30 to spend at Teachers Pay Teachers, just in time for the big sale.  Christy and Tammy at Fluttering Through First Grade rock!  Thanks a million ladies!  I snagged a ton of great items during the sale.
