Fill Your Heart With Freebies Blog Hop

Day 4 of no school. Cabin fever has set in. Roads are clearing, ice is melting and it's supposed to be 63 degrees for Sunday (then drop 20 the next day). Roll call---Who else is ready for spring/summer???

Well February is here. This month is one of my most favorite months to teach, but also the busiest!! With Valentine's Day, President's Day, Groundhog day, Black History Month, Dental Health Month, the 100th in the world do we fit it all in???

So in order to help you out--a great bunch of gals got together (& they included me! :) for a little freebie blog hop with an awesome prize at the end!!

I hope that you can find some awesome freebies to use this month and follow our blogs along the way in order to win an item from our stores.

I'm offering up a Winter CVC Hide & Find. I love using these with the kiddos. It's a great review (especially to see who can/can't read these words with the strategies we've posted), but it's also a great time-filler as well.

I have a pocket chart hanging on my easel at school and I fold it or unfold it depending on my needs. I place these cards in there. Here is a picture of my Apple Hide and Find from September.
The students had to read the word in order to check behind the card to see if Johnny was hiding. If so, play again. If he is not, then turn the card over (as seen in picture) and continue.

So I'm offering up a Winter CVC Hide & Find for you!  Click on the picture to take you to the freebie.

You'll find the next stop on the hop at Brittany's blog--Lovely Literacy and More
