Baby It's REALLY Cold Outside-Freebie

In your state, 
life may be quite a bit different from ours. 

We are bracing for a storm that will be put in the books. 
They are saying, "It's one for the books!"
"We have never been this cold before!"
"We have never seen this 
much snow in one storm!"
"The store shelves are emptying!" (They are!)

I live in southwest Michigan. We get a lot of  lake effect snow from Lake Michigan. They say we could get up to 18 more inches. We already have about 10 right now. Not only will it snow, but it will be windy and that snow will drift.

Then the second part of that storm is the wind chill. They say that we could dip down to -35 to -40 degrees. Yup, you read that right, 

"minus 35 to minus 40 degrees below ZERO!"

Those temps are just too dangerous for anyone to be out in, much less have students waiting for buses or walking to school in. 

They say this could be in effect for Monday AND Tuesday. BRRRRR! That's a whole lot of cold!

(Do you sometimes wonder who "THEY" are?)

(In this case it's the weather people!)

So to help your kids keep warm, I made them some new mittens and hats!

Just kidding, I didn't make them. . . Ashley Hughes did. Do you know Ashley? She is from The School Supply Addict. She has a lot of cool clip art and papers. You should check her out sometime!

In the fall I made a nonsense word product that did very well. If you're like me, you just can not use pumpkins in the middle of the winter. So if you picked those up and don't want to use them anymore, you better grab these for free!  They'll last as long as winter lasts in your area. 

Just click on the picture above to go to my store to get yourself a set of these. Now be a good doobie and don't forget to leave me some of your thoughts! I love to hear what others think. 



  1. Really cute activity. Will be perfect for my little guys after reading "Biggest Snowman". We're out of school in East Tennessee till Wednesday. I only have 1 inch or so of snow, but it's enough to paralyze the roads in my mountainous community. We definitely are not used to 0 degrees.

  2. Hi Patty! Sorry for the "comment complications" with my blog! I guess that goes with being a newbie blogger right? I have to figure out how to get a "leave a comment" link on the home page. Anywho...if you click on the actual post you should be able to comment. Hopefully that little glitch will be fixed soon! I snagged your Nonsense Words mittens and plan to use them with my reading intervention group this week! Thanks for sharing! Did you have school today? I'm in MN and we had today and tomorrow off because of the temps! Stay warm!

  3. Kate, glad you found me! Yes we stayed home today and will tomorrow. -40 wind chill tonight is mighty cold. Where in MN are you? I'm in southwest lower Michigan.
    I think you need to add a gadget to get your comments on your blog. Good luck. I hope you visit again.

    1. Hi Patty! I am in Minneapolis (but teach in Maplewood, which is right outside of St. Paul). Thanks for the gadget suggestion! I will look into it!

Thanks for leaving me a comment after grabbing one of my ideas! It's like leaving a tip for a job well done!
