December Currently + Giveaway Winner!

First, we’re linking up with Farley for the monthly Currently…

Christmas is the best time of the year! The twinkling lights, cold weather, family, holiday spirit… the list goes on and on. Christmas music has been the soundtrack to our work for weeks now (to help get us in the mood of course). Starting tomorrow, we’ll be introducing you to a gingerbread story and the resources we’ve created to go along with them each day this week.

We also have a giveaway winner to announce! Congratulations, Andrea! We’ll be sending you our Jan Brett Winter Book Units soon.

Keep your eye out for another giveaway sometime this month (hopefully)! We are close to reaching 200 followers and that definitely deserves some celebrating. Let us know what kind of giveaway you’d like to see in the comments (i.e. reading, math, winner’s choice, etc.).

Currently & Catching Up

We’re linking up for the November Currently today!

We’ve been neglecting the blog again but we’re working on some great new items for the store. We’ve spent the last two weeks working and re-working our Veterans Day Unit. It is finally done (for the this year at least)! If you’ve purchased this from us in the past, be sure you download the newest version. We just added a new reader today. You’ll hear more about the contents of the unit in a few days when we guest blog for a fellow TpTer!

There are also some new math resources in our store and we’re putting the finishing touches on another update to our Thanksgiving Literacy Activities. We’ll be adding the last book to the unit – A Turkey for Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting – in the next few days, so you might want to snatch the unit as is before the price goes up a little.

We also wanted to let you in on a very special offer!!! For the month of November only, we will be making some custom requests for free! If you let us know through the comments section or by emailing us at creationcastle@gmail.com, we might choose your request to create and send it to you for free just for letting us know that you want it!

We’ll be back on Monday for another Q&A, see you then!

October Currently & New Centers

We’ve finally got our October Currently ready, so we’re going to keep this post short. Things have been busy around Creation Castle, we’ve been uploading a few new products to our store and began some new projects. Since things are so hectic around here, we are changing our blogging schedule a little bit, but we’ll tell you more about that tomorrow.

Check out two of our newest centers! We’ve also recently added a Kindergarten centers pack.

And now on to our Currently from the lovely Farley

Can’t believe tomorrow is Friday already! We hope you were able to enjoy a short week at school!

Wired Wednesday!

For our first “Wired Wednesday”, we are introducing you to www.cookie.com. This website is a great resource for younger kiddos or Pre-K/K classrooms. They offer a variety of services and best of all it’s free!

As you can see, this site is very kid-friendly. The design is bright and colorful, but also makes it simple for little ones to navigate and interact on their own. The site is comprised of learning games, stories, videos, worksheets, and color pages. While the story and video sections are wonderful, they are also relatively new, so there is a very limited number of options to choose from. The games section however is packed full of learning opportunities!

The games are divided by content area: Math Games, Language (ESL/EFL) Lessons, Kid’s Puzzles, Fun Games, and Science Lessons. There are 90 games to choose from.

Check out this site if you are looking for something new to use during centers, free time, or for students to use at home!

We’re also linking up with Farley at Oh Boy, 4th Grade this week for our first ever Linky!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for Thursday Tales – we’ll be talking about a great book to use for Grandparent’s Day {September 9th}!
