Currently, giveaways and a FREEBIE!

This weekend has been great.  I completed two 5K's and my legs are a little sore, but overall I feel awesome!.  It's time to keep my running shoes on and not give up.  Saturday's 5K was for the Girls on the Run program which is a great program we have at our schools that help train 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade girls for a 5K.  I got to run with one of my former Kindergarten students who is now in 4th grade, Ahhh!  I am starting to feel a little old.   
I enjoyed running so much yesterday that I decided to wake up early today to do it all over again with a great teacher buddy of mine.  After today's run, I will be resting the remainder of the day.  And maybe creating more freebies for the future.  
Well, now onto ...December Currently!  I am linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for this month's edition.  I know I am a little late to the party but better late than never!  I completed my December currently yesterday afternoon, so no I am not eating popcorn for breakfast.

A good friend of mine is having a 12 days of Christmas giveaway!  You have to stop on over to Learning is Something to Treasure to enter your chances of winning.  Lisa has some great items she is giving away.  There is still plenty of time, enjoy!

And now what you all have been waiting for...A Holiday Write the Room FREEBIE!  I created this for my class.  My students love writing the room this year.  It is one of their favorite activities   I decided to make it a little bit more fun and theme it around the upcoming holidays.  Santa's Elves are being mischievous again, they took all the holiday presents and are hiding around the classroom.  Santa doesn't know where to find them... Students will enjoy searching around the room for Santa's little helpers.  This is a perfect literacy center activity for building sight word recognition and writing skills.  Simply cut out the twelve sight word elves and stick them up in various places around the classroom.  (I created two different sets.) Students use the master page on  clipboards as they walk around the room to search for the elves and their presents.  As they find each numbered elf, they write the sight word on their paper.  Students have fun learning their words and searching for them!
