I bought 2 things from Babbling Abby that I can't wait to use.
The first is the Snowy Day Inferencing Investigation. My student loved the candy corn bandit and I think they'll love this activity. (I tried to figure out how to get a picture of the cover to show you but no such luck.)
I also got her First Grade RTI Pack. This will be perfect for some of my students that still need some work on sounding out words and finding sounds.
I am also pretty excited about the fluency pack from Jodi Southard I got. I've been eyeing these for a while. I've read some rave reviews on other blogs for them and fluency is a big focus for me with my first graders. I think it's the key to them becoming good readers. So I got her January fluency pack and I also got her January Poems and Songs Pack. I've bought several of those from her and love them. They work great for fluency practice and poetry work. While I was linking up these files, I noticed she still has her store on sale. I recommend going and checking them out.
So that's just a peek at some of the things I bought. I'm ready to get back in the classroom and use some of the great items I've got. I've also got some great Christmas activities from some good friends that I plan on using in the next few weeks. I'll be sure to share them when I get that going. I hope to be back soon with some actual good suggestions and activities that I'm using in the classroom. I hope to be back on Friday with my kiddos. I find out tomorrow when I go in for my post op appointment. Send good thoughts and prayers my way that the doctor thinks I'm doing as well as the physical therapist says I am.
