New Winter Morning Work & TpT Cyber Monday Sale

Whew! Talk about preparing last minute. I have been working my butt off to finish my new winter Daily Language packet and I *just* uploaded it - just in time for the TpT Cyber Monday & Tuesday sale! Wahoo, who's ready to do some shopping? I don't know about you, but as soon as that calendar switches over to December, I just hear the ka-chings start as I begin my holiday shopping.

If you're interested, let's get onto the shopping details, shall we?

My whole store will be 20% off for Monday and Tuesday, and if you use the code TPTCYBER, you'll get an additional 10% off at checkout! Talk about a perfect time to shop!

So, with my whole shop on sale, that includes my new pack:

Some more winter-themed products:

And of course, some holiday units:

I am excited to start some holiday activities in the classroom this week, what are your plans?

Author Spotlight: Todd Parr

I was first introduced to the books of Todd Parr several years ago when I received The Earth Book as a gift. Since then, I just keep discovering more and more of his gems. Not only do I love the bright illustrations, but I adore the way that he can take heavy/serious topics (peace, being different, etc.) and make them approachable for students.

Some of my favourites:

The Earth Book - My first and favourite!

The Peace Book - Takes a general concept, and puts it into words that students understand.

The Family Book - Uses fun pictures to illustrate the point that families come in all different shapes and sizes.

The Feelings Book - Great for students who may have difficulty identifying emotions.

It's Okay to Be Different  - Great book to teach tolerance and acceptance.

The Thankful Book - Perfect to get students talking about being thankful around Thanksgiving.

The Underwear Book - C'mon, the kids will never be able to resist this book!
