Christmas Craziness (& a giveaway!)

Wow. My little old blog has been VERY neglected over the past month. With Christmas craziness, it was just one of the many things I was able to put a side for a while until the craziness died down. We didn't get out of school until December 21st! Whew! After that I had some sort of family function every day through Christmas. It wore me out! Well, looking into January, I'm not sure the craziness is going anywhere, but I miss blog world so I am going to do my best to make time for my little place out here on the internet. 

I thought I'd take the time to share with you guys my New Years Craft and Writing Activity. 
BLAST OFF into 2013!

This is very similar to my Blast Off into a New School Year download that I posted back at the beginning of the year. It was a popular download, so I thought it would be fun to change it around into a New Year craft and writing activity. I did this craft at the beginning of the year so unfortunately I can't do it now. =( Hopefully some of you will be able to find this resource useful as you return to school in just a few short days! Teachers go back the 3rd. Yikes! TOO soon! =)

(Template/Journal Examples)

In this download you will find spaceship templates and journal sheets. On the journal sheets students will be able to write about why they think 2013 will be a blast!

Because it has been AGES since I have posted, and since I am doubtful anyone even reads this little old thing anymore, I will give New Years activity away to one random follower who comments on this post on New Years day. Simply leave me a quick comment and be sure to include your email address! 

Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas season and is getting ready to bring in 2013 with a bang!

  5. Crazy is an understatement this time of year! Love the rocket, we begin with a Solar System unit when we return to school after the holidays. This activity would tie in wonderfully well.

    Happy New Year!
