A Sale, An Ugly Pumpkin, Freebies and A Hurricane?

Happy long weekend everybody.  Well it was for us anyway.  Thursday afternoon we received the news that we would get Friday off.  Hurricane Sandy was just a little too close to our coastline and the over 40-MPH winds wouldn't allow our school buses over the bridges.  No evacuations, power outages, or anyone hurt.... so all was good. 
Saturday we headed over to the beach and saw these 10 feet waves crashing in.  Unbelievable. 

Now the fun stuff, I'm having a sale on TPT.  My store is 20% off until October 30th.  Click the picture below to go to my store. 

I have an Ugly Pumpkin Unit that transitions between the holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving.  It makes text to text connections with The Ugly Duckling and has a cute craft project.   Click the picture below to take you there.

Now for your FREEBIES.  I just added my Subtraction Strategies Posters for Free to TPT.  I also have Addition Strategies Posters for free too.  Just click on the names to get yours. 
Not only did the hurricane bring us a day off but I guess cold weather too.  A high in the 60's on Tuesday.  Love fall in Florida.  Happy Fall Ya'll.

IKEA Frames

It's been a long while since my last post.  This school year has been OVERwhelming to say the least.  Not enough minutes in the day.  I finally put school work to the side (or so I thought) and took a trip to IKEA with the family.  My son and daughter wanted new desks for their rooms.  We chose their desk color and size and then....around the corner I found these A-dorable little frames.   I could hear my son saying "Oh No, more things for mom's classroom!"  How could I pass these up?   

A few of my little cherubs are having difficulty remembering what literacy center they have completed or not completed.  I thought that having a bright visual  might help jog their memories. 
Here they are at our reading and listening centers.
Thanks for taking a peek.
