One of my New Year's resolution was to think of some way to show my appreciation to my loyal blog followers. From time to time, I will put a link to a packet that I plan to add to my TPT store. You will get a free sneak peek! The link will only be available for a very short time so you need to check in on a regular basis. If you miss the free time, you will still be able to go to my TPT store to purchase the packet. I have a freebie at the end of today's post for you. :)
My friend Fern @ Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas and I just finished our second packet together. Some of you were lucky enough to download our Money packet for free as part of our Christmas Eve treat to our loyal followers. If you liked the money packet, you will love this packet, too! This packet has Valentine's Day math and literacy activities. There are also test prep activities since it will soon be that time of year. Most of the activities are geared towards 2nd grade, although 3rd grade and some 1st graders could use these activities, too.
