Elf on the Shelf Being Naughty

Saw this on Facebook and had to share.  I don't have kids and my students are too old for the "Elf on the Shelf" craze.  Honestly, the little guy kinda creeps me out, but this photo made me laugh out loud.  Now that my mind is spinning from all the naughty things my elf could do, I kinda want one...

Holiday Sort Freebie

It's December and that means Christmas is right around the corner!  Krista over at Creative Clips has been doing this super cute weekly freebie event called "Unwrap Your Freebie" to spread cheer this holiday season and I couldn't be more thankful for her generosity! I had to make a cute product with her graphics ASAP, thus resulting in a freebie for you.

This simple activity would be great to use in your student language center.  It's easy to understand and requires little help from you.  Students sort a variety of holiday-themed words by past, present, or future tense.  Then, they use some of those words to write sentences.
Common Core Alignment:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.3.1e Form and use the simple (e.g., I walked; I walk; I will walk) verb tenses.

You can get this freebie in my TPT store.  Click HERE to get it now!

Cyber Monday & Tuesday hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving!  I did not brave the crowds to do any Black Friday shopping this year.  I saw on the news that a Walmart near me had two women trampled!  They both survived, but how scary!  My sister and I went one time and we literally had to run to keep from getting trampled ourselves once they opened the doors.  I'm not sure if I have the stamina or courage to do that kind of shopping anymore.  Cyber Monday is more my thing now.

Speaking of Cyber Monday, there's a HUGE TPT sale coming up.  If you've been loading up your wishlists like I have, then this is the time to shop because thousands of items are up to 28% off!  I'll have everything in my shop on sale and I even got my butt to work over the break and finished a pack I started last year.  It might be one of my all-time favorites.  I used it with my third graders last year for our graphing unit, but I needed to go in and put the finishing touches on it.  It only took me 8 months, lol! :)  It's robot themed and has 58 pages full of fun foldables, games, worksheets, and anchor charts.  It covers tally charts, pictographs, bar graphs, and line graphs.  You can check it out by clicking HERE or on the photo below.

Happy holiday shopping!
