Happy New Year and a FREEBIE!!

I have been truly enjoying my Christmas vacation!!  In fact, I feel like I should be getting a lot more school stuff done but- I haven't.  Instead, I've been cleaning out bedrooms, closets, cupboards- I would much rather be working on school stuff!!  I does feel good to get some things cleaned out!
Before Christmas, I finished up my latest creation.  I was having a hard time finding FUN activities to help teach time to the hour and half hour.  The kiddos that I am working with are the ones who didn't quite catch on to it the first time around- so here I am- I get to find out HOW I can get them to understand this crazy concept of time.  We did several of the activities before break.  Most of the kids were finally catching on (oh, I really hope they still have it when we return on Thursday...)  I am planning on doing a post that shows the activities in action because they were a lot of fun but I don't have all of the pictures etc. on the computer that I have right now- so, hopefully within the next week I will get to that...  You can check out the preview on TpT to see the fun activities.  My favorite activities were the Fairy Tales of Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  These are books (written for about mid year first grade) and the students have to match the times that everything happened in the story.  Here are a couple of pictures that I do have...
