Christmas Countdown

Don't you just love the Christmas season? I've been busily getting all my Christmas cards out this year. I have never sent them out this early. However I know if I don't do it now, then I'll forget all about them. I actually made my Christmas cards this year. Now that I know how to make products. I figured I can make Christmas cards too. So I gave it a try and I think they turned out pretty cute! My kids are already asking when is Santa coming? So Christmas countdowns have been on my mind a lot. I always buy my kids those chocolate Christmas countdowns. They love getting to eat a little chocolate each day.        For school, I used to make a Christmas countdown in my class with the green and red strips and the kids pulled off a strip everyday. Well I changed it up this year. I made two different countdowns. The first one is a 1st Grade Sight word countdown. Each day they have to read the sight word they take off. My First Graders are really struggling with sight words so I hope this helps! 
    The second countdown is a math fact countdown. It includes: doubles, adding, subtraction,and times tables. That way you can fit it to your students needs. It really works for any grade level. Click on the pictures if you want to check them out. I recently dyed my hair and I hate it! The first person to guess the new color of my hair, you can choose between these two packets. Have a blessed weekend! 
    One last thing! I will be having a sale on all of my products on Cyber Monday and Tuesday. Everything in my store will be 20% off. You can also enter the code cmt12 at checkout to get an additional savings!
