New Improved Nonsense Words . . . and they can be yours for free!

Two days in a row that I am posting! 

Stop the presses! 

This can't be! 

But let me explain before you have heart failure.

Yesterday was a snow day. . . 
so there's more time on my hand. . .

Today is Saturday and I seemed to have gotten a lot accomplished yesterday
 so I don't feel drained to do too much today. . . . 

And. . . .

I've somehow picked up a head cold from someone, so I don't feel like doing too much activity anyway.

Dang cold! It stopped me from babysitting my granddaughter tonight because I don't want to get her sick. . . and I feel sad that my kids can't go out on a date because I'm sick. They were very good about it, and will do it some other time. 
So pity party is over now.

Yesterday I beefed up my nonsense words. I have a set that I started using with the few first graders that I work with during Reading Shuffle (RTI time). 

This new set of 66 word parts now has blends that can be put together to make words.
 They are called 
Besides using different letters, the backgrounds are also different. 
I picked up the cute daisy backgrounds from Michelle at the 3AM Teacher 

(Pssst. . . it's her birthday today. . .wouldn't it be great if everyone in the blogging world 
stopped in and wished her a Happy Birthday? She's only 34! What a youngster!)

If you'd like this same set, all you have to do is sign up for her newsletter and 
you'll be able to get them for free! 
Yup, that's right, I said FREE!

One more thing, I just noticed that I made it over 360 followers! I think that is so stinkin great! And in honor 
of that nice round number, I'd like to have a mini give away. 

I have a lucky number that I always use for everything. The first person to guess my lucky number will receive this set above for free! And if there is more than one person to guess that same lucky number, then I will give them this set also. . . Get your thinking on . . .  What could it be?

(Don't forget to leave me your email address so I can send this to you).

Would you like a hint? 

hmmmmmm. . . . well it's between 0 and 20. 

That makes it much easier. . . right!

Get ready, get set, . . . start guessing!

  7. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
