I had so much fun with my last flash freebie that I decided to do it again, this time with my newest finished teaching eSource, Winter Centers.
I’m a little late to the party with this center, but let me tell you a story about how they came to be. I sat down to make a recording sheet to go along with my alphabetizing center for the month of January. After I made the recording sheet, I looked at my raggedy old alphabetizing cards that I’ve used the past 5 years and thought, “Let me just whip up some new cards to go with my recording sheet.” So I did.
Then I looked at my Polar Bear Fishy Facts center. Next to my shiny, new alphabetizing center, the dingy graphics and bent cards looked, well, sad. So I thought, “How long can it take to whip out new fish and polar bears. After all, I have this awesome graphics set from Primary Paradise that would work perfectly.” So I did.
Then I thought, “I need a center to work with our math unit of place value. Surely that will be easy enough to put together.” So I did.
Finally, I had one empty board left in my library center, and our newest spelling list introduces silent E, so — well, you know the rest.
So 5 days, 41 pages, approximately 25 hours of work, and two too many 2:30 nights later, “Winter Centers – “Snow” Much Learning Fun” was born. I truly had no intention of putting together a set of winter centers. I was thinking February. But these winter centers were demanding to be made, so I went with them. Is that how it works for you all as well?
To celebrate going to bed at 12:30 last night instead of 2:30 — who knew the difference that extra two hours could make — I’m have a two-hour flash freebie. It is now 2:00 PM EST on Sunday, January 13. For the next two hours, “Winter Centers – “Snow” Much Learning Fun” will be free! But hurry because this offer will be gone in a flash!
If you missed the flash freebie, this teaching eSource will be available for $5.50 in my store.
