Happy New Year! Freebies, Deals and Winter Fun!

How is it possible that we are getting ready to ring in 2018?
I honestly feel like we were just welcoming 2017!

I prepped most of my 'New Year' goodies before I left for break, but do have some lesson planning yet to finish...I know what I want to do/will be covering...just have to get it all typed up!

As much as I would have loved to offer you a new New Year freebie, I just didn't get around to it, so if you didn't already grab this freebie I offered last year, here it is:
All the directions and suggestions for use are in the FREE DOWNLOAD!
Students identify what the 'missing number' is and then write it on the recording sheet next to the picture that was in the missing number's place! 

If you are in a paper crunch, or trying to be more environmentally friendly, you can also have them use magnetic numbers to cover the picture...they can then record it on a dry erase board and/or a laminated version of the recording sheet so that it can be re-used! 

After we use this in math center next week, I plan on putting it in one of our morning tubs with magnetic numbers and a dry erase board for them to practice writing the number 
(aka my trick to squeeze in some extra number writing practice!)

You can click the pictures above or HERE to download it for FREE!
(There is ANOTHER FREEBIE at the bottom of this post too!)

If you LOVE the New Year one for Numbers 0-10, be sure to check out my Winter Theme for Numbers 10-20 too:

But that's not the end of the New Year fun!
I have teamed up with 30 other sellers for a 'Magical New Year' promotion!

On Sunday December 31st we are each offering a dollar deal!

It is normally $3, but will be reduced to $1 for ONE DAY ONLY!
Much like the New Year Early Emergent Readers Pack I offered last year for $1, this pack is PERFECT to have ready to go for the BIG winter sporting event starting February 9th!

Much like the Winter Express Readers Pack I've offered before for $1 deals (see post and video here), this pack comes with word cards, word and picture cards and 2 versions of the reader to aid differentiation in the classroom!  
It is also offered in both color and black & white: 

We will be reading and coloring our New Years books the first week back when we discuss 'New Years' and then they will be added to our Readers Workshop book baggies for independent reading, sight word recognition and fluency practice!
(You can read more about the New Years books and see a video showing everything included on THIS POST)

We'll use this Winter Sports version as we approach February and discuss all the types of winter sports we will be seeing on TV!

Be sure to check out all the DOLLAR DEALS for 12/31/17 HERE:

In addition, each author is also offering one of their products for 50% off on 1/1/18!
From me you will find my Penguin Informational Readers for only $5!

It comes with 11 informational readers about different species of penguins! 
Not sure it's going to work for your students?  Try out the Emperor Penguin reader for FREE

You can read more about my penguin books ON THIS POST  and if you are planning on a penguin unit this winter, THIS POST will give you lots of ideas for poems, crafts, books and more! 

Be sure to CLICK HERE to find all of the 50% off deals on January 1st!

Try this New Year Puzzle (for the word 'have') for FREE!

Using them is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4! 

This video explains how to use them as well:

And if Sight Word Puzzles are something you think your students will benefit from, be sure to check out my New Year post from last year that explains exactly how to use them and what is included!

Searching for more New Years resources?
Just click this picture to be brought to all my paid and free resources!

One of my favorite things to do is have this puzzle on the kids' desks when they come in the first day from break!  It's super easy- they cut, build the new year and color!
(Click the picture to find it in my TpT Store- I edit it each year so you'll always have it!)

We work through these New Year goodies during the week back
The kids each make a pair of monocles (see in picture below) and I take their picture wearing them with a New Years hat and blower in hand!  Then I print the pictures and mount them with their New Years resolution foldable (see above).  It makes a great bulletin board/hallway display!

We also make and read these books:
and watch the ball drop via YouTube!

In addition to the FREEBIES at the beginning and middle of this post, be sure to grab my New Year Countdown FREEBIE in my TpT Store too!

DOLLAR DEALS- Sun 12/31/17
HALF OFF DEALS- Mon 1/1/18

Wishing you health, happiness, peace and serenity as you head into 2018!

I would like to say that I am resolving to blog more in 2018 but I don't want to break my resolutions TOO quickly this year!  I post a lot of ideas on Instagram and my Facebook page because it is easier and less time consuming, so if you don't already follow me via those social media outlets, I would love to have you join me this year!

Until next post,
