MEGA post...new products, sale, Thanksgiving lesson, a freebie and a giveaway!

Yes, this is going to be a MEGA post! I feel like I have been SLACKING in the post department! I am trying to get caught up, but every time I have tired, something has got in the way! So today I still wasn't feeling well enough to go to the gym after work so I came home, had dinner with the hubby and went right upstairs to work! And let me tell you, I have been pretty productive the last hour or so!

SO...are you ready? Grab a coffee and a snack, it might be a bit!

First, today I did my annual making butter activity! I started this activity my third year of teaching and each year the kids love it! I have learned a few tricks over the years! The biggest one is to use individual small containers!  Here are a few pictures of our day!




While they were shaking their butter we watched a virtual field trip through Scholastic! They are awesome!
 



How fun huh? You should try it if you are still in school tomorrow!

OK...next, here are a few new products I will be posting to TPT and TN tonight!

There are 12 task cards in this pack!


There are 10 task cards in this pack plus a worksheet, posters, and explanation of the activity.

There are 12 multiplication word problem task cards in this pack. This one is very simple, nothing fancy! You can get this for FREE here:)

And I am working on this at the moment! Should be done very soon! Like, hopefully tonight;)

I noticed tonight Lisa from Live, Laugh, and Love to Learn is having a Black Friday Sale in both of her stores! So you know what...I want to join that sale too
So Friday and Saturday you can shop at both of my stores! 20% off at TPT and 40% off at TN! I also plan on doing the TPT sale next week! I sure love a good sale! I can't wait to do some shopping!
 
Last but not least...did you like the new products you saw today? Leave me a comment and I will use the number generator to pick 2 winners on Thursday to win all 3 new products for FREE!
 
Have a great evening everyone and see you soon!
