Snow Day Freebies!

Well, my wish came true! I am staring at about 8 inches of freshly fallen snow and ice coated sidewalks and trees out my window right now, so thankfully my school called a SNOW DAY! I am in such a great mood and have extra time for a change so I thought I'd share some freebies with you!

I mentioned in a previous post that my kiddos are working on that bossy silent E this week. I love Heather's Magic E Hunt and plan to use that with my above-level students at the beginning of next week (since today was a scratch!). I found several other printables from TpT and blogs to use for centers, too!

For a whole group mini-lesson, I made my own Magic E wand which my students LOVED! They took turns being the princes and princesses of Magic E Land and used the wand to magically transform CVC words into CVC+silent E words! Yahoo...kindergartners are easy to impress! After read both versions of the word, we sorted them into real or nonsense word categories on chart paper.


To make my wand, I painted and added some curling ribbon to a brown cardboard star wand from Paper Source (lovvve that place) that I had laying around. I included a template for you to make your own wand in a Magic E Mini-Packet that I have just finished. Just click the pic below to be taken to my Teachers Pay Teachers store and download for FREE! While you're there, take a moment to check out my other products that 20% off for the big Leap Day Sale going on now! Don't forget to add the promo code L2P9Y for an additional 10% off.


Finally, here are two Dr. Seuss themed freebies if you are celebrating his birthday with your class on Friday.
The first is a Crazy Seuss Creature page where students draw a crazy creature similar to one of Dr. Seuss'. I give my students several examples from books. There was a large poster with examples from a March Scholastic "Let's Find Out" if you still have it! The bottom lines are for students to write "It is a _____" and write the silly name for their creature. The second is a writing page where students write directions for making green eggs and ham.

I am excited to make green eggs and ham and do some fun projects with my kiddos on Friday! Best of all, my mom is coming in to help out! Love when I can recruit family members:)

Happy Leap Day!
