Sight Word Freebie

I see SNOW!!! Kind of. Really, it's more like sleet/frozen rain. Oh well, I'm safely at home and warm, so I'm not going to complain!
So it could snow in Houston ... don't think we'll get this much, but still! :)
I'm using my snow day to post some new TPT products. I have a new sight word freebie that my students have been "guinea pig-ing" for me this week. They seem to like it, so it's time to unveil it to the world!
I cut the cards out and placed them around the room for a write the room activity. Students have to read each sentence and unscramble the sight word that would make sense in that sentence. They then record the sight words on their recording sheet. At first, a few students needed a help...they didn't quite get the "unscramble" concept. Once we did 1 or 2 cards together, they got it! This really kept my higher students challenged! 
Don't forget the Snow Day Sale going on! You can scroll down to my last post or click HERE to see LOTS of great products by LOTS of talented teachers that are half off or only $1!! The sale ends Thursday night, so don't miss it!

Snow Day Sale!

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let is snow! Here in Atlanta, we're expecting some pretty gross winter storms the next few days, so our school system has already called off school for Wednesday and Thursday (no one wants to recreate the Snow Jam from a couple of weeks ago!!). Since we already had Friday and Monday off for President's Day, I don't have to go back to school until next Tuesday! Yay for an unexpected week off!

My real life BFF Melissa from Don't Let the Teacher Stay up Late told me about a great Snow Day Sale being put on by Carla at Comprehension Connections. You can look below for a list of all of the great products on sale by lots of great teachers!

My new word family bundle is 50% off during this snowy sale! This pack has over 200 pages of activities, picture cards, and practice sheets to help students with word families for short a, e, i, o, and u. It's only $2.50!

My Color Word Station pack is also on sale for only $1. This pack provides several activities to practice recognizing and spelling color words. It goes great with Pete the Cat because it's got a groovy shoe theme  =)

I hope you'll visit my TPT store to check out these deals, as well as a load of free stuff I have. Also, look below to find a lot of other great products on sale. The sale goes until Thursday night.
Stay warm, y'all!
