Penguin Freebies and New Bloggers to Follow

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  I’m so thankful for all my wonderful bloggy friends who inspire me on a daily basis and who always keep things positive!  Here’s a little winter fact family freebie for you.  I have an addition/subtraction version (on the left) and multiplication/division version (on the right).  They are both double-sided.  (Graphics by Jason's Online Classroom

Speaking of inspiration, I want to introduce two AMAZING new bloggers, who also happen to teach at my school.  Amanda is my former first grade team leader (from when I taught primary) and Aylin is our reading specialist.  They have a brand spankin’ new blog called Learning to the Core, which is all about integrating technology and the Common Core.  They both teach with 1:1 technology like me and have been the inspiration for so much of what I do in the classroom.  They have a couple of very cute reading response freebies up so please go over to their blog and show them some love—I promise you won’t be disappointed!  

I also want to give a huge shout-out to the fabulous Christi Fultz, who is responsible for my awesome new blog design.  She created a custom design that is SO ME and she was such a pleasure to work with.  You can check out her website and portfolio HERE.
