Blending Boxes GIVEAWAY

Hey, y'all! I am up late tonight since we are having our second snow day tomorrow! Snow in the South is never taken lightly and I am ready for a comfy day in...Pinterest recipes ready to try and a list of TpT updates to make in my shop! 

I just posted my newest unit, Blending Boxes {Short Vowels}! I love Blending Boxes and used them every single week in my small groups in first grade! 

I use the Blending Boxes to introduce the sound in small groups on Mondays and then use the boxes to set the purpose of our small groups throughout the week. It only takes about a minute to have the children blend the words, but it is a great way for little readers to build their confidence. 

Blending Boxes {Short Vowels} includes 20 color pages and 20 black and white pages! There are four pages for each vowel - three pages have cvc words and one page has ccvc words. 

Now that I am in Kinder land, I am working on blending boxes for each letter of the alphabet. I still use the short vowel boxes and will use the blend and digraph boxes this spring with my Kinders!

Head over to Facebook to enter the giveaway for this unit!

Be sure to check out TpT's Teachers are Heroes sale TOMORROW, FEBRUARY 25!! You can save 28% with the promo code HEROES. I can't wait to load my cart UP!

Enjoy your snow day, southern friends!!

100th Day Hooray!

Hello? Hello? Anyone there?
I am embarrassed by my blog absence!
 I will sum it up in two words. 


Haha! Let me elaborate!

 When we moved to Georgia, I accepted a Kindergarten position. I have been teaching first grade for the past four years! After just four years, I COMPLETELY forgot what the first few weeks of Kinder is all about. Whew! I recovered sometime in October, but then it was time for the holiday trifecta! So, here I am!!!

We moved twice in the past six months! We moved from Birmingham to Atlanta and stayed with my parents until our house was ready. Then, we moved into our house a few weeks ago! Simply said...boxes instead of blogging! 

I am thrilled to be back! I have seriously missed blogging and creating! I have kept tons of notes in my iPhone about blog post ideas and upcoming units! 

100th Day Hooray! is the newest mini unit in my shop and it is FREE! Please check it out! Nothing fancy...just some festive fun ideas, a Tootsie Roll Pop experiment, and printable prompts! 

Have y'all celebrated your 100th day already? If so, tuck it away for next year! I LOVE that TpT now gives you access to your free downloads. Such a time saver!!!

I am off to enjoy some Super Bowl leftovers {yummo dips}
Have a great week!
