'tis the season for giving!

As the holidays quickly approach, I have a few giveaways to share with your and free e-books from Teacherspayteachers!

Last year, TPT put out a holiday e-book with 50 free holiday items.  Well, this year TPT has grown so much they decided to put out 3 books and divide it into various grades.  Teachers had to submit items for consideration into the book.  We knew the competition for the PK-2 book would be tough.  It turns out that they had a hard time deciding and decided to choose enough for 2 books at this level!  Yeah!  So, there are LOTS of freebies in this e-book collection!  I submitted Mrs. Claus' Workshop - 11 Math worksheets and Christmas Cactus - a compound word game.

My products are in the 1st-2nd grade edition.  Here are the links to the 4 TPT e-books:

PK-K Edition
1st-2nd Grade-Edition
3rd - 6th Grade Edition
7th - 12th Grade Edition

BTW, if any fellow bloggers are looking to post pictures side by side, I'll share a tutorial I found.  I was so glad to finally find one that had easy to follow directions and pictures!  This is the "magic" code:
<table border="1" width="150"><tbody><tr><td>FIRSTPICTURE</td><td>SECONDPICTURE</td></tr></tbody></table>
You place this in the html section and then click on insert a picture.  You'll cut and paste ALL of the picture code that is generated and replace the FIRST PICTURE text.  Repeat for second picture.  I've found that if you want to type under the pictures you'll need to start typing in the html screen and then after a few words you can go back to the compose screen (WYSIWYG - what you see is what you get).  If you try to type in the compose screen it's difficult to get past the pictures to start typing.

How to Post Side by Side Pictures - A Crafting Journey

Last, but not least, I'm a part of 2 fantastic giveaways! Math Coach's Corner is having a huge giveaway to celebrate a million views of her blog!  Congratulations, Donna!  What an amazing accomplishment!  Mrs. Jones' Kindergarten is having a fun holiday giveaway.  Wow!

  1. Just wanted to say we used a few of your wonderful Mrs Claus' Workshop math sheets for our math practice today. My kids loved them. And I am so excited to see you have some information about side by side posting of pictures. I'd been looking for information on how to do that and I'm so glad I found you blog when I stopped by to let you know I wrote up a little post about how my kids used your math worksheets. If you want to take a look it is here:

    Thanks so much for the freebie, I really appreciated it.
