Spring Break and a FREEBIE!!

It has been a CRAZY week off- I'm ready to get back to my firsties and back to some normal days...  I went to Milwaukee, just me and the hubby.  Not really for a fun trip.  I had to go to see a doctor who specializes in Chiari Malformation, a brain malformation I was apparently born with, and I am just now having problems with... long story short- I am probably going to have to have surgery this summer to relieve some painful symptoms I am dealing with daily.  Anyway- if you happen to get to go to Milwaukee- you have to check out The Safe House.  Here is a You Tube Clip about it- What a fabulous time!!
Then we stayed at a little Irish Pub and Inn and this is what we woke up to the next morning...
Somebody broke the window, rummaged through the entire car, didn't take a thing (we even had a spare set of keys in the car).  So this is how we drove home for 5 and a 1/2 hours...
Had a very nice Easter with my family today and I hope everyone else did too!!! Here is a FREEBIE for you!!  I always have a few kids that really get to a point where they REALLY struggle with word attack skills and I have to find many many many different activities for them to practice in isolation as well as within text. Here is a game to allow them to practice blends, digraphs, short vowel sounds, and word families all while playing a game!!  They don't even realize how much they are learning!  Click on the picture to download the game.


  1. Oh no! Sorry about your window!

  3. So sorry to hear about your car:( Your freebie you shared is great though! Thank you for being so generous:-D

    We are ALL Special!

  4. This freebie game is incredible and I cannot thank you enough! I am a literacy 'specialist' and work one on one with some 1st grade boys, they cant get enough of your game. Wish I could edit it to include words I want them to work on as well. What an amazing idea you had! And thank you for being kind enough to share it with us.

    1. My kids love it too!! I am thinking about making more with some other words... send me an e-mail and let me know what types of words you were thinking of. Maybe I can switch some things up for you.
