New Year's Activities Galore & More!! {Freebies}

January 5, 2013
Hi friends! I hope your new year is off to a great start! I've been a little M.I.A because I've been overhauling my house, going room to room and getting rid of everything that we haven't used in a while, or no longer have a need for. It's a new year's tradition of mine that I've done for years! It feels so good to have a clutter free home- but wait- let's see how long it lasts! ;)

 I return to work on Monday and I wanted to share some of the activities I've prepared to use next week. I made this glyph with my kids last year but just recently posted it.
Here are some pictures of the glyph:

and few activities from the packet:

A closer look: 
I've also updated my New Year's Themed Pack & nearly doubled it in size. This was my second tpt item ever listed and it was in dire need of a makeover!! So if you've previously purchased it make sure to download the updated version for the added goodies :)

 Here are some items included in this packet:

AB, ABB, ABC Pattern Activities- great for differentiating instruction!

Maze activities for counting by 2's, 5's, & 10's. I've also included answer keys for each sheet.

Counting down to the New Year!
There is also a sheet with traceable numbers for kids who need the added practice.

Celebration Time!
I've included matching cards to go along with this activity sheet.

Here's the whole sha-bang!
If you're still with me, I have a freebie just for you:

  1. I LOVE your tradition of going through the house room by room to get rid of old and unused items. I really need to do that. I had planned on doing that over break, but now there are only two days left :( I think I will put that on the roster for spring break ;)

    Thanks for the freebie!
