Snow galore..and my St. Patrick's Day Unit!!

I hope today finds you warm in in a location that is nice and sunny!
 
I'm located in Wichita Kansas and yes I'm part of that area of the country that had been engulfed in the snowstorm!! That's right I've lived here for six years and the most snow I've seen a one time is about 5 or 6 inches. By the end of yesterday, Wichita ended up with 14.2 inches of snow!! Yes, that's right, you read that correctly..... 14.2 inches of snow!!! Being a southern born and raised girl, 14.2 inches of snow was pretty much the end of the world to me!!!

Needless to say, we are on our second snow day off from school! You don't see me complaining. So, what is a girl like me to do on snow days off from school? I take advantage of my snuggle time with my own two kiddos….and make TPT creations!!

Here's a few pictures of me, my kiddos and the snow yesterday!
Our deck!  14.2 inches of snow!
The steps on our deck!
 My poor son!! The snow was higher than his butt!! He was not happy about this picture!!
This picture was when my kids first woke up and looked out on our deck! They were amazed at how much snow we had... and it was only about 10 inches at that time!

And here's the TpT unit I finished yesterday! I hope you love it!!

 Sight word game!
 Real and nonsense word sort!
 Vocabulary words!
 Write the room with CVC words- 5 sets that contain 8 words each!  The sets are interchangeable so you have endless possibilities of word combinations!

  1. WOW!! That is a ton of snow!! We always have small snowstorms but the last time we had 14 at one time was like 2 years ago! Hope you are enjoying it...or at least trying to!

  2. I'm in Kansas too (Overland Park) and we got over a foot of snow too!! My hubby and son have been building a snow fort for last 2 days. I love "good" snow days -- in December we had a snow day, but I literally had to scrape the snow off the ground with a shovel to get enough to build a snowman! It was the dirtiest snowman you've ever seen with bits of grass and mud everywhere. We're loving all this thick, powdery snow!!

  3. Love the look of your new unit! :) I can't believe how tall that snow is! Hope you had a good snow day! I was really hoping for one, but all we got was 6 inches.
