I can remember when my son was little that he always insisted that I wake him up just before the new year.  He always liked to hold hands just at the clock struck midnight and literally jump into the new year.  It was soooo cute!  Not sure where he even got that idea.  Now that he's 12 (and I'm a little older, too) he'll probably be the one waking me up...but I'll bet he'll think he's too old and far too cool to jump into the new year.  

But off to other things.  How was 2013 to you?  Pretty good?  Looking forward to 2014?
2013 was pretty good to us, minus my dad's health scare, but I am planning a year of not sweating the small stuff, while sweating my behiney off to get back in shape.  It's LONG overdue.

So here we are looking 2014 right in the eye. Have you decided on a New Year's Resolution yet? Is it to get in better shape? To de-stress your life? To amp up your teaching game? Well, whatever it is, we're here to help you...although we all think you're perfect just the way you are! 

I have teamed up with several fabulous teacher bloggers to bring you The Best Year Yet Blog Hop and Giveaway.

WHEW!  WE MADE IT!
WINTER BREAK...AT LAST!


So for the first day of break, how about a delicious cup of hot chocolate?

You can grab Hot Chocolate Love for 50% off today only!
{This is one of my best-selling units.}





Here are some samples from this unit.





Here we are again!  Seventh day, and my last wake up before WINTER BREAK!  How about you?

Today we are continuing the Flip Flap Fun Theme but mixing it up with some math!





This product covers a variety of skills, too!





I completely forgot about posting! 



If you grabbed yesterday's 50% off item, Flip Flap Phonics Fun for Interactive Notebooks, you'll want to be sure to grab today's 50% off item, More Flip Flap Phonics Fun for Interactive Notebooks!









Did you see the total price if you purchased all of the items in the 12 Days of Christmas song this year?  The total cost would be $27,393.17, which is a 7.7% increase over last year's total cost of $25,431.18.

WOW!  Wish I could find a boyfriend like that!  Although, not sure I'd know what to do with most of the items on that list.  Although since today is Day 5, thinking I could definitely make use of the 5 golden rings!

Fortunately, the items that we're offering aren't nearly as expensive!

Today I'm offering one of my hottest items for 50% off.
Do you use interactive notebooks in your classroom?
We do, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!  The kids get so excited when we use them, plus right there in one place I have evidence of teaching as well as proof of their understanding.  Cool, right?




 I know that some teachers dread the mess that the cutting can make, but I really strive to make my flip flaps as low mess as possible. 

If you've used these, I hope you'll take a minute to leave me a comment to let me know how you and your kiddos like them.  

If you're keeping count, we're on Day 5...almost halfway there.
