New Year Deals and Steals- FREEBIES too!

How is it possible that we are about to ring in 2016?!
Didn't 2015 just start?!

My boys and I are about to start our annual New Year project:
This will be our third year making them...I love watching the hands/feet grow and the writing take off!
You can read the 'how-to' HERE and find the set of 2016 labels HERE!

While we are working on that, you can grab some 'deals and steals' as part of the 'Rock the New Year' promotion I am taking part in!
Simply download this FREE informational packet that is filled with hyperlinks to make finding the deals easier!

Here are a list of the participating stores:
Unfortunately this picture does not have 'clickable links' to the stores, but if you download the promotional freebie, you will find this same slide with clickable links!

The deals begin on Tuesday December 29th with $2 Deals!
Simply type rockthenewyeardeals into the TpT Search Engine or click the hyperlinks to see all the deals for the day!

From me you will find my BRAND NEW Winter Theme Sight Word Puzzles!
Like my Fall and Holiday Sight Word Puzzles, these are editable too!
They come with 35 'ready-to-go' puzzles for 2, 3, 4 & 5 letter words, as well as blank puzzles so that you can make puzzles to fit the words you are working on!

Here are some pictures of my kindergarten son taking them for a 'test run!'

The set has puzzles for the following winter themes: winter/snow, Martin Luther King Jr, Groundhog's Day, Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, Superbowl & President's Day!

On Wednesday December 30th you will find 50% Off Deals!
Simply type rockthenewyearsteals into the TpT Search Engine or click the hyperlinks to find all the deals!

From me you will find my popular Penguin Readers Set for only $5!
You can read all about the books and see what is included in this post:
There are 11 easy to read informational text readers (10 individual penguin books and one 'review' book), a book carrying case, fact cards and crowns included!  The readers come in color and black & white, so you can use them in small groups for guided reading and then give students their own copies to color and keep in reading baggies for re-reading and fluency practice!

You can even try one out FOR FREE by clicking HERE:

On Thursday December 31st we will be posting FREEBIES!
Some sellers are using freebies from their stores, some are turning paid items to free for the day and some have created BRAND NEW freebies that will be posted that day!

Simply type rockthenewyearfreebies into the TpT Search Engine or click the hyperlinks!

My freebie will be a BRAND NEW 'forever freebie' that I will add to my store that day!
It is all ready to go and my boys have taken it for a test run!

I printed the mats on cardstock and laminated them using my new favorite home laminator!
I got it during Amazon's Daily Deals for just $16 (OK- I got 2- but shhhh!)
It heats up in less than 4 minutes and the papers slide through quickly!

Anyway...back to the freebie!
The intention was to use cotton balls to cover the pictures BUT too many holiday Santa projects, I guess, because I could not find 1 cotton ball in the house!  So ignore the cotton pad!

It's super easy- spin (use a paperclip and pencil), find a picture that matches that word family/rhyme, cover it and then record the word (optional- great for differentiation!)

Keep spinning, finding, covering, recording, until all the pictures have been covered or words recorded! 

Here is what it looks like when complete:

And an alternate way for differentiation- just list the words (no picture) on the recording sheet:

Use it in a center, during small group instruction, as part of an early finisher's basket, etc.!
There are 6 mats- one for each vowel- and then a review mat that combines all 5 vowels!
Two types of recording sheets are included to aid differentiation!

Update 12/31/15
