I know its been a long time since I posted, sorry, life happened in the form of everyone in the family coming down with a stomach bug, conveniently two days apart, so I barely got one kiddo over it when the next kiddo came down with it! I succumbed on Friday which was also the day we were scheduled to leave for a marriage retreat. We ended up leaving 3 hours late and I was a bit green the entire trip, but I survived and we had a good time regardless!
I am working on progress reports tonight - they are due tomorrow! Ok, I am actually procrastinating on the darn progress reports in order to blog and finish up my Gingerbread Skills Pack! I promise, as soon as this post is finished I will get right on writing up all the progress reports a principal's heart could desire! I even have all the names on them already, I am just gearing up for the handcramping to come! (Does anyone else write their reports out by hand?!)
We have been making a lot of progress though - I am thrilled with where we are this year! We are solid in math - very few of my firsties need help with math this year, which is great as I can have our tutors focus on reading for both their sessions, as I still have some friends who are very low. However, they came in extremely low, so very low is actually an improvement (don't you love how I can quantify lowness?! It's a very scientific process I assure you!)
My Gingerbread Skills Pack is up on TPT now - 93 pages of Math and Language Arts centers/activities! You can check it out by clicking the picture below:

Also, there's still time to sign up for the Gingerbread Exchange! Sign up and I'll pair you with a partner - you send them a small gingerbread ornament or decorative item ($10 limit) and a gingerbread craft your class creates! You'll receive a similar package in return! I am so excited about this - we already have 20 people signed up and I can't wait to see all the great gingerbread items that get exchanged! No blog is necessary, just fill out the form :)
Alright, off to do progress reports....remember to leave a comment for a chance to win a goodie!
