Currently, a Sale and a FREEBIE

Happy New Year!  I have linked up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her Currently Linky. If you are a new blogger and need help check out an old post by Jen at the Teacher's Cauldron to get the scoop.  I remember I used to look and wonder and wish I know how to link up. Just follow Jen's steps and Farley's three rules!

To celebrate New Years, I am having a 20% off sale in my TpT store and have added a freebie for you:)

Psst!   Don't forget to check out the freebie for you!
I would love your feedback:)

  2. I'm also in desperate need of cleaning and putting away x-mas decorations. I always get so depressed taking it all down though. Your freebie looks great. If I still taught first grade, I'd totally use it!:)

  3. I am with you on the cleaning house and losing weight. We need a big teacher group where we all support each other :)

  4. Me too! I need to lose weight and my house looks pitiful. I fully plan on taking a sick day to clean the closet. Crazy, I know!
