The Jacket I Wear in the Snow

I’ve just finished creating a set of retelling cards for one of my favorite winter stories, The Jacket I Wear in the Snow.  We will be reading this story our first week back after vacation and although I already have some retelling cards, I wanted to update them (and fix the peeling laminating film!).  You can find these cards on my Teacher’s Pay Teachers site. 🙂

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie

Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite times of year!  I love reading the stories about the old ladies who swallowed different things to my kiddos, but There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie has got to be my favorite!  I got my file out on Monday to plan for next week and by today, it’s disappeared!  I have no idea where it is, but I’m hoping that it returns tomorrow!  I’ve probably put it in a safe place (I have lots of those).  😦

In the file were all my props for retelling the story, so I had to make some new ones.  I have some older ones posted on my blog from the last few years, but I was feeling the need to create a new old lady and update her a little.  I found these great graphics from Scrappin Doodles and decided to make a new set of props.
