December Currently & My Goodies

I've heard all about Meghan's "Currently" blog link ups, but I've never actually joined one.  I'm a little embarrassed to say that I've never been able to figure out how to add text to the picture.  I finally learned that I can just save the image to my desktop, insert the image into Powerpoint, and then add text boxes.  Thank you Holly!  It was so much easier than I expected!

My New Goodies

I also wanted to show off some of my new purchases from TpT during the Cyber Monday sale. 

I've been eyeing Nicole Shelby's Greek Mythology Unit for months now, and I finally just had to have it.  I don't even teach mythology, but I know I'll be able to find several uses for this awesome product.  She really did a great job!  

I also bought the Hello Fonts Commercial License from Jen Jones.  I can't wait to start playing with my new fonts!  It's crazy that I now feel the need to use a special font for EVERYTHING I type.

I was thrilled to find clip art for informational text features.  I was working a new product and was dreading having to create everything from scratch.  This saved me so much time!

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this fraction product.  I had been racking my brain for months on how to best teach equivalent fractions, and this product has it all!  It's fun, creative, and it's perfect for our standards!  I cannot wait to use it with my students!

Show off your new goodies by joining the party!

We were just out for mexican food and the game was on. Saw the amazing return on the blocked field goal. We all seem to need to do some shopping! How amazing to be able to feed four families.

I love your Cyber Monday finds! I love the look of that Mythology pack. I have a girl in my room OBSESSED with Mythology this year and that would be a really neat thing to use to push her further. I am going to pop over and take a peek. I love your blog! I am your newest follower!

Please pop by and say hi at my blog as well!
