Procrastinating, a Freebie, and a Giveaway!

Am I the only one who procrastinates when there's serious work to be done?  I'm talking "8 days of school left, have to finish report cards and assessments because kiddos take them home on the last day of school, but I'm blogging instead" kind of procrastination?  {It makes me feel better that so many of you raised your hands!}  For real, I have had 2 sick kiddos of my own for the past 2 weekends!  You know, when I was actually planning to do some of my paperwork.  Being a mommy to sick kids comes first, tho.  Maybe the pediatrician can write an excuse note for me to put in the report card envelope...  "Your child's teacher was unable to complete the report cards since she was taking care of her own sick children.  Now she is poolside."  Naturally, I'm kidding; no doctor I know would sign that!!  ;)

Since I'm procrastinating, I wanted to pass along some bloggy love to all of the readers of this blog.  For the next 24 hours, feel free to download Long Vowel Word Family Uno from my TPT store.  I have played this game with grades 1-5 as a literacy specialist, and kids love it!  It gives them plenty of practice using long double vowel patterns with blends and digraphs, and it's fun!!   We use it occasionally during the word work part of our guided reading groups - then students are welcome to play it during Working on Words.  If you download, please take a teensy moment to be a follower or to leave feedback; I sure do appreciate y'all!!  Sorry, but this offer has ended...  :)

  3. Um, you are SO not the only person who procrastinates like that. I'm talking "TWO days of school left, have to finish report cards and assessments because kiddos take them home on the last day of school, but I'm blogging instead" procrastination.

    But thanks for offering a freebie and making my blog-stalking procrastination pay off :)
