Back with Printables

I hate trying to figure out how to start a blog after a week off.  Do you guys struggle with that?  I had a rhythm down, but last week got away from me.  I had the best of intentions, but by the time I made centers, worked on new projects, and did lots of other random stuff I realized I'm just circling back around to making time for my blog.  

Speaking of which, thank you so much for all of the sweet birthday messages.  It was neat to me getting so many birthday shout outs.  It definitely added a new element to one of my favorite days of the year.  I believe that several of my followers have birthdays in the next few days, so if I don't make it to your blogs, Happy Birthday!  I hope it is as excellent as mine!  My teammates got me breakfast from Panera and this amazing chocolate cake with chocolate icing from Publix.  I also got some chocolate covered strawberries.  Then, my TA got me a cute picture frame and my favorite Starbursts (berry).  To top it off, my kids and I spent a little money and got some new birthday books and some other cool books, specifically Pete the Cat for the iPad.  Not to mention, we had a birthday snack, birthday worksheets, and birthday ice cream and cupcakes.  It was a pretty incredible day and yes, I am fully aware that I am spoiled.  

Now, to spoil one of you.  As you know, I had my first blog giveaway last week.  I decided to pick two winners instead of one.  The lucky winners are Alicia M. and Tracy L.  I will be emailing both of you your packets later tonight.

My next surprise is I finally finished my Spring Printable packet.  It is my favorite packet I've ever created.  It covers 27 different standards in Language Arts and Math.  My favorite part about it is I used spring clip art instead of Easter clip art, so it can be used during the remainder of March and in April and May.  Most standards have 2 worksheets for each standard.  Personally, I use some for morning work, some for review, and some for assessments.  Oh, and just in case you don't teach first, I have several second grade teachers that have looked at it and they are using a lot of it as their morning work.

Anyway, since this packet is a little bigger than my typical packets, I am giving you four freebies.  If you like them, then I think you will like this packet.  You can click on any of the pictures below and it will take you to my TPT site.  When you get there, click on the preview button and you will get them.

Also, if you are like me you like seeing what you are getting for your money.  Below are pictures of around 20 of the items included.  You can click on any of the pictures and it will take you to my TPT store.

Hang tight friends!  It's about to get crazy!  Up next is summer packets!!!  Hope all of you have a great night!  Thanks again for being incredible followers.
