TPT Sale!

There's nothing like a good sale!  This Monday and Tuesday TPT is having a huge Cyber Monday sale!  I decided to join in and I'm offering 20% off every item in my store.  If you buy any of my items and use the TPT sale code CMT12, you get a total of 28% off!  And, I decided to extend my sale until Wednesday!  I hope you stop by and check out some of my items :)  Click HERE to access the sale.

On another note, I've been nominated by a few people for a Leibstar Blog Award and I'm so honored!  I'm going to post again when I have some time to answer the questions that go along with the award.

Happy shopping!

Reading Strategy: Predicting

Things are getting back to normal up here in NY (except for our little gas crisis...but that's another story).  There are still a lot of people without electricity and homes...and now we're getting a Nor'easter!  It's actually snowing out right now!  We need a break already.  I decided to offer a new freebie to celebrate (?) our first snow :)  Click HERE to access a free sheet to help your little kiddies keep track of what they are predicting in their books!

Hurricane Sandy

I usually post only about school related things, but as a teacher in NY I wanted to post a little bit about what's been happening in NY with Hurricane Sandy.  As you know, Hurricane Sandy has had a substantial impact on the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic areas.  People have lost everything due to floods, winds, snow, and even fire.  There are still thousands of people without electricity or hot water.  Please consider helping those in need.  This was taken from the Red Cross Website:
"Donations help the Red Cross provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by disasters like Hurricane Sandy. To donate, people can visit, call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Contributions may also be sent to someone’s local Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013."

I was extremely lucky to have nothing happen to my house or my family, but there are so many who were not as fortunate.
