Happy New Year! - classroom organization and a freebie

Happy New Year!
I haven't blogged for a month -- oops!  :(
We arrived home last night from visiting Josh's family for 10 days - the longest we've been able to be with them!  Here are a few pictures from our trip.

their street - we would NEVER have trash pick up with this kind of snow!

I have worked this school year on reorganizing my units, which had been in open baskets in my room.  Then the dust set in and I sneezed and sneezed and sneezed!  So now, this is what things look like ...

everything is labeled with a tag (I have an owl theme in my room) and placed in a container with a lid (these are the new ones coming to school with me tomorrow morning)
and here is how I store my stickers - they will go in my 2"sticker binder tomorrow morning

I have several new products that I want to share with you:

January Print & Go printables - there are 32 various math and literacy pages in this unit
January Print and Go! (first grade)

Marshmallow Words! is a fun way to practice spelling and reading CVC words and practice identifying short vowel sounds.  I am printing and laminating this now to have it ready for this next week! 
Follow me on Instagram (@learningisforsuperstars) to see this unit in action during the week!
