After Christmas Sale

Well, the holiday season was a success at the Freshwater’s. My momma was home this year for the holidays!!

The holiday season always seems to go by in a flash and although, I love the twinkle lights and holiday cookies, one of my favorite things are the after-Christmas bargains.

Head on over today and “stock” up!!

Happy Holidays


P.S. I did have someone email me and ask me what grade I teach... I am a special education teacher servicing student’s in Kindergarten and 1st grade. My activities are based on the current needs of my students. (Keep in mind my students fluctuate every year and their abilities are different.)

P is for Peppermint

Have I ever told you guys how much I love my job?? I work with some pretty amazing individuals. This week, I was chatting with a Kindergarten teacher I work with and she said, “As I was driving to work today I came up for a center activity for you to make…” Well, after a brief chalkboard drawing and some sweet incentives…

“The Peppermint Push” was created.

The Peppermint Push is an engaging activity that will help student's think about the order of spoken sounds in words. The Peppermint Push sound segmentation activity will assist your students to hear the sequence of phonemes in the 42 different C-V-C words included in this packet. The student's will verbally stretch the word’s sounds while pushing a peppermint candy into each of the boxes, one for each sound heard. (i.e. 3 sounds, 3 peppermints)

Head on over to my TPT store and pick it up. I think your student’s will “love” learning how to segment sounds with this “sweet” center.

Always, Melissa

P.S. Thank you Jackie!!! You’re simply The Best!!
