FREEBIE Mania - Five for Friday!

We made it, we made it!!


Of a Full Moon Week!!

Almost all freebies to share this week... :)

1) Y'all supported me into the Top 100 on TpT two weeks in a row a few weeks ago...

I promised a freebie as a way to say thank you!

Wa - La!

It's finally done!!!




2. My nine year old son is too stinkin' cute lately...the boy is OBSESSED with Harry Potter. For a recent 3 hour round trip drive to go skiing for the day, this is what he brought...
At the time, he was about 100 pages into the top book...but wanted to make sure he had enough just in case. Adorable.

3. With the Superbowl coming up (boo...the Packers are not in it)...thought you might want to download this FREEBIE if you haven't already...

4. My friend Emily over at Curious Firsties wrote this AWESOME SAUCE blog post this week about how she teaches her students about fluency...I love the simple genius of it!

And...check out her blog design...she DID IT HERSELF!!!

While you're there, you may want to link up with her linky, too!

5. Valentines Day will be here sooner rather than later and last year I had my students make one of these as their Valentine note to their was a big hit!

Now it's your turn to go link up with Doodlebugs! Wish her a Happy Birthday while you're there! :)



  1. I love your Valentine card! How did you make the heart? Thanks! Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Susan! I cut the heart out of that large roll paper that we store on a chart...freehand...and taped it up to my smartboard after writing on it in Sharpie. :) Nothing too fancy...

  2. I absolutely love the Valentine's Day idea! I tried downloading the freebies at the top, but the button didn't work.

    1. It should be all set now!! Thanks for letting me know!! :)

  3. Thank you for the freebies!!! I love your son's book collection :)
