Winter Break Blues - Giveaway!

It's official! I go back to work tomorrow. It's true. It's been a VERY busy winter break for us...up until these last few days. I FINALLY stopped making plans and did WHATEVER I wanted to...which ended being nothing, really. lol. It was nice. I haven't done nothing in a LONG time. I've been really good about working out this break though!  If you've you follow me on instagram, you've noticed that. I have a pretty good group of ladies that has been really good at supporting each other on our workouts and healthy eating. Thanks ladies!

Anyways, to "celebrate" my Winter Break Blues, I'm having a giveaway on my Facebook page - so hurry up and get over there! (But wait until you finish reading this post!)

I also wanted to show you some of the things I'll be prepping....I finished up the ENTIRE 9 weeks of phonics packs that I'll need! Woo!! I won't need to make phonics packs for another 9 weeks - PTL!

The next few weeks, we'll be doing long vowel patterns. We already did the Long A, and when we get back, it's Long U.








I also did all the R-Controlled words packs


I feel so accomplished! lol

Today, I'll be spending the day laminating my January centers. Can we say "procrastinator, much?!" 

There's a little freebie from my January Literacy centers on my Fan Freebie tab on my blog's Facebook!


I'm also very excited because I just ordered a few of THESE:



What am I using them for, you ask?? Well, I have Hadar's All Done pack, and I'm excited to put it to use!


I will be adding a few things to these drawers from some of my stuff, as well as from some of my favorites like Denise (Sunny Days in 2nd Grade),
...and more! lol


Ok, I best get off of here, go workout, and start laminating and planning!

If you've made it to the end, then you'll see I'm also doing a giveaway on the blog for a THIRD shot of winning! Just comment below with ANYTHING (and your email!) and I'll pick a winner on the blog too!
