ANTONYM MITTENS + NEW YEAR LINKY

Well, I haven't spoken to my darlin' husband much in the past 24 hours and I managed to finish my latest pack - Antonym Mittens.  He moaned a little bit, but I think he secretly loved the uninterrupted time with his "Dark Souls" computer game ;)  

I have been doing this craft with my kiddos for the past 6 years and it is always a crowd pleaser.  In addition, it is a very easy craft to get up on those bare as all get out post-Christmas classroom walls (was that a mouthful or what)!  


Sorry to inform you . . . this cuter than cute model of mine does not come with my packet! However, this "winterized" antonym collection has a little bit of everything in it!  


We're talking 51 pages in all.  From a tea party and center games to independent worksheets this packet will keep your kiddos engaged and working hard for a week or two!  It even comes with a rockin' tune by Ron Brown's Intelli-Tunes. Yup, that's right folks!  It's included in the download!  Somehow I talked him into it . . . ;)

I am going to offer up one of the Mismatched Mittens Color By Code pages for you to grab if ya like.  I figured you needed a little parting gift today!

Thanks JW Illustrations for the sweet little mittens!

Before I go today I wanted to link up with one of my bloggy buddies over at The Teachers' Cauldron.  Jen is a doll and this linky is oh so timely . . . I can't' think of a better combination to get me jazzed about joining a PAR-TAY!  




I am supposed to list a personal and a blogging goal for good old twenty - thirteen.  After thinking about it for most of the afternoon, I narrowed it down to one per category.  

KELLEY'S PERSONAL GOAL 20-13
This goal may be a little out of my hands, but it is definitely the thing I will strive for the most this year.  My personal mission is going to be to get healthy this year.  I'm not talking about exercise or eating right.  I already am pretty good at these things.  I am looking at it in a larger sense.  Here's the short-n-sweet version of the back story on this.  I have a gnarly case of endometriosis and a not so hot surgery last February has blown up my life quite a bit (I'll spare you the icky details).  I am so tired of feeling like crud every day.  It's time to find a new crew of doctors and PTs to help me get back on my feet again.  I am promising myself that I will stay on it this year . . . to fight like heck to find the answers I have been looking for.  You all are my witnesses!  Game on broken body parts . . . game on.  

KELLEY'S BLOGGY GOAL 20-13
I am going to set aside time to seek out new bloggers.  I have been so consumed with finding the balance between blogging, teaching, and being a wife that I have dropped the ball in this area.  It's time to start stalking again!  I can't wait to make good on this promise!  

Alright all you alls, I am off to check in on Mr. Dark Souls himself.  I haven't seen him in a few hours.  Merry New Year {almost} to you friends.  I'll see you again VERY soon with a special treat.

  4. Total cuteness Kelley! I love it!

    Sending you lots of prayers and hugs...I have had tummy problems for a long time and know how health issues can suck everything out of you. I finally found a doctor that helped AFTER having 2 surgeries ordered by my previous doctor. Hang in there girl and make a ruckus if you need to!

    Blessings to you in 2013!
