It’s My Birthday and I’ll Give Freebies if I Want To!

Today is my birthday and I am in the mood to celebrate! I can’t believe that I have aged another year (seriously, spinster-hood is knocking at my door), but I don’t care because this past year has been absolutely amazing. I can’t even begin to describe the joy and sense of fulfillment that blogging has brought into my life. Since YOU helped make my year wonderful, I thought you deserved some presents too!

Your first present is so super-special, it’s time sensitive. Yes, this is a gift that EXPIRES. I know how much you gals (and a few guys) love my Interactive Sight Word Readers, so I made one special in honor of my birthday. I present to you “Here is the Party!” You’ll notice that the cover is pink-that’s because pink is one of my two favorite colors (I know, big surprise!)

Anyways, this is a gift that is available today only (November 30). Follow the link to grab your freebie, but be sure to get to TpT by midnight because it will change to a priced item after 12:01 on Saturday, December 1.

(Try not to be too upset if you arrive late to the party- the book will only sell for $1 after it becomes a paid item).

My second gift to you is a FOREVER FREEBIE. Let your students experiment with invented spelling with this Party Time labeling sheet. Students will experiment with letters sounds as they record the words “candle”, “cupcake”, “hat”, and “balloon”.

 Head over to my TpT store and download your FREEBIE!

And just in case you missed it…
My  Gift-Wrapped Headband Craftivity is a festive addition to any birthday celebration. It’s also FREE to download!


As I’ve been typing this post, the song It’s My Party and I’ll Cry if I Want To is in my head. That was one of my all-time favorite songs growing up. I do NOT want to cry today (but if I do, they will be tears of joy!)

Happy Birthday to Me!

Hi, I'm Maria.

I’m a former kindergarten teacher turned work-from-home mom. I still love sharing ideas and resources to make teaching easier, so you can focus on what really matters in the classroom. When I’m not working on the blog, you’ll find me chasing kids around the house with a cold cup of coffee in my hand (some things never change even once you’re out of the classroom!)
