RTI, Catching up and a Suprise Ending!

Whoa, today was a crazy day!  My kiddies were a little out of whack today.  The flu has been racing through my classroom.  I had 7 students absent yesterday and 4 today.  I have been coughing like a crazy lady as well. 

I want to try to catch everyone up on a few new products in my story.  I've been working like crazy since the holiday break and don't intend to slow down any time soon!  I have sooooo many product ideas in my head so the sooner I get them out, the better for my sanity :)  So here we goooooo......

I just uploaded my new RTI for Kindergarten.  I love, love, love the "January Jump" but unfortunately not all kids ride that wave.  So I came up with this activity to help those students who are still struggling with letter identification and sound.

This product is 87 pages in total.  Each alphabet letter has 3 different pages:  One page for students to practice creating / forming the letter, one page to practice writing the upper and lowercase letter and a third page for letter discrimination.  The packet also includes three different lesson plan formats, two assessment pages and an alphabet chart with graphics.  I am SO excited about this product so check it out if you have a minute.  Click here to check it out.

I also just finished a FREEBIE!!!!  It's a cute lil literacy activity for your kiddies to enjoy.  Depending on the grade level, I would definitely recommend some modeling prior to completing this activity.  Here is the link to check it out  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Winter-Word-Challenge .  I hope you enjoy it!

And finally, for all of my fellow bloggers and TpT'ers.......One of my New Year's goals was to become more organized.  I wanted to put together a binder for all of my blog and TpT "stuff" so I created a TpT/Blog Organizer.  Well, let me just say, I started using it at the beginning of the year and wow, what a difference it has made.  I now have a place to keep my sales records, my goals, my pinterest info....everything!  All in one spot.  I'm in love with this if I do say so myself!  Check it out HERE.

Okay, now for the surprise ending...........
     I got engaged over the weekend!!!!  I know, crazy huh!  I have truly met my soulmate. The one I am supposed to grow old with and be with forever!  He is the kindest, sweetest, most thoughtful man!  I always SWORE I would never marry again.  Well, I've definitely learned to never say never again!

The Soon-to-be,
  Mrs. Dorman
