My new BFF & Reading for fun

So, this week was conference week.  In the midst of all the busyness and long days, I woke up on Wednesday to find the nicest email from Patricia saying that she downloaded one of my free Christmas Math worksheets (Mrs. Claus' Workshop) AND that she posted some pictures to her blog of her kids using them!  It was the A-MAZE-ING to see my items being used by someone else.  I felt like a proud parent!  You can see the post here.   So, thank you my new BFF, Patricia, for making my week!

I am SO ready for Christmas break!  My to-do list is very long, but I'm hoping to actually have some time to read books for me. Not that I don't love children's books, but occasionally I feel the need for some variety!  If you are looking for some free kindle books to download for the holidays, I have a few sites to share with you. 

Inspired Reads - I just found this one today!  It has free and discounted Christian Kindle books.

Books on the Knob Blog - This is one I've used for a while.  Advance Warning:  They post every type of book!  Definitely not a site for kids!  I wish I didn't have to sort through junk, but they really cover the deals on kindle and also for the Nook.

Overdrive - Your local library!  Don't forget that you can download free kindle books from most (all?) public libraries.  If you want a popular book, you might want to login now and put a request on it so you can possibly get if for the school break.

  1. Thanks Melissa. You are too kind. My kids loved being able to color on their math worksheets instead of having the "boring" drill ones they've been getting off an on lately (from moi...sometimes I'm not the most creative, LOL). I think the free resources on TPT don't get enough "thank yous" from those that use them. I understand people are busy and feedback is one more thing to have to do, but since we do put effort into developing these products it is always nice to know how people are using them. So I try to put a picture and a link back if my kids use the product and it was a good learning experience. Have a great Christmas break. Love your blog design.
