Well, school starts and blogs stop. Whew. It's been a VERY hectic month! I'm sooooo excited with my new little ones. They are SWEET AS SUGAR!!! However, they are low. I mean, I haven't EVER had to teach the alphabet to kids before. I mean, I came from 4th grade and I'm now in 2nd. These kids don't all know their phonics. I'm worried. 
Also, I don't know about you, but we've been given a new reading series.... Journeys. It's crazy full of resources ... but it's really overwhelming! 
Well, so then I also was working like a crazy person and staying at school for an extra 2-4 hours each night. We also had our family literacy night .... INSANE but AWESOME!
So, this weekend was much needed.
My hubby and I finally got to start celebrating my birthday! We went to dinner on Friday and then a movie! SO FUN. I woke up on Saturday with a fever, cough, sore throat, sneezes, and aches. My birthday party was supposed to be Sunday, so I cancelled that :( Bummer. But I also had a group of friends coming over on Sunday night. Sheesh. It's been a LLLLLOOOONNNNGGGGG weekend!!!!

Well, anywho! I'm recooping and thus here is my opportunity to create.  I have a new unit for you!!!

Here it is! I know it's based on CCSS for 1st, but that new basal I told you about had that in it as well! Sooooo I made this! You grab your copy at my TpT store. However .... I'll email the unit to the first 2 people who follow me and leave a comment. I mean, what do you have to lose? NOTHING!
