Show & Tell Tuesday Linky

Today I am excite to be participating in a brand new monthly linky hosted by Forever in 5th Grade called Show and Tell Tuesday. Every first Tuesday of the month, you can link up to show off up to 4 awesome things going in in your classroom, at home, or where ever. Show off and share a little bit about anything and everything!
Before the holiday break, my class had blast during Gingerbread Week. My favorite were our Giant Gingerbread Friend heads, which I never got a chance to share. Some of them turned out slightly terrifying which made them even more wonderful. I love seeing the variety and creativity of my students even when they are given the same template and model. 

This past December my kindergartners and I participated in a Gingerbread Man Exchange hosted by PAWSitively Teaching. The kids were so excited with each envelope we opened. We enjoyed learning more about other parts of the country. Each time one arrived, we used Google Maps to look up the school and view the surrounding area. I set up a trip on Google Earth for my students to experience traveling from our school to other schools around the country.
PS. Check back for more next month when we do the Valentine Exchange!

My "Need To Make" list for TpT has been slowly growing since the beginning of the school year. While I've created plenty for my own classroom, I haven't added much to my store in some time. I'm excited to introduce 3 new products added to my store over the weekend. They will all be 50% off for through today 1/19.
This last item I am sharing in hopes of connecting with some more Washington teachers. Last year I was not able to attend the WA Teacher Meet Up but this year I've got it marked on the calendar and I am eagerly counting down the days! If you are in WA and love to meet fellow educators who blog and TpT, then make sure to RSPV to Kristin & Lindsey at 2 Literacy Teachers by Feb 27th. Hopefully I get to see a few of you there!
