I'm BACK with some FREEBIES

No... I have not gone "missing"... although it may seem that way since I have not posted in MONTHS.

Actually, I have no excuse - other than I have been busy being a mom, teaching my wonderful class of 1st graders, and trying to stay at least a day ahead of the projects, events, and curriculum, as well as make sure I was ready for all the holidays. (I hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.)

However, during my blog absence ... I did work on a few things that I can share with those of you who still check in. So here you go...

I'll be using these this month:

Some more items I created for December
Support for Imagine It! Unit 5.11-5.15 

Once my students had been introduced to a number of holiday gift-givers from various countries during our Holidays Around the World unit, I had them create an informational paragraph introducing the United States gift-giver, Santa Claus, to the children in other parts of the world.

We began with a Santa Is, Has, Can page, drafted, and then published the final piece. They turned out great!
