A Groundhog Day Giveaway

Sorry for the 2nd post in one day, but after you see this giveaway I'm sure you won't mind.   So I'm teaming up with my good friend Christina Bainbridge from the Teaching Oasis for this Groundhog giveaway. 

 Each of us will be giving away our Groundhog Mini Units.  Click on each picture for more details.

So here are the rules:
1.  You must be a fan of each of our blogs.


2.  You must "follow us" on our Teachers Notebook Stores.
Mrs. Bainbridge Oasis     and Teaching Oasis-Sandy

3.  Leave a comment on this post stating that you have followed the above rules. 

Since Groundhog Day is this Thursday there is not much time to enter.  I will pick a winner this Tues. night (Jan. 31st) so you have enough time to implement any activities. (It might be late in the evening since I have to take my car to the dealer.)

Good luck and be on the lookout for another giveaway by Christina and I- Coming Soon.

More Presidents Day

I have a new item that I posted at my Teacher's Notebook store.

Balancing the Budget
A great activity to get students to understand how difficult it can be at times to balance a budget.  This is a problem solving activity where students have to $2 to spend on groups that need money.  If you are interested in this product be sure to check out my store.  It is only a $1.

And here is my Free item.  Included is one for George Washington and Abe Lincoln (back and white also included if you want to save on colored ink).   Just click on the picture to find the download.

Just added another President's Day Freebie.

Need a brunch break and it's back to report cards- maybe.
