As a thank you for supporting my store this past challenging year, I've created a free resource for you. It's 4 images you can use as backgrounds if you are teaching remotely with Zoom or Google. It may work on other platforms, too, but I'm not completely sure. If you're not teaching remotely, you can just download them, print out the images, and use them as posters in your classroom. Click HERE for the link to get the resource; you'll be asked to make a copy for yourself and then you can access it. You can also click on the image below to get the freebie.

In other news, I am almost finished creating Boom Cards decks for all my holiday puzzle resources. I recently uploaded decks for Martin Luther King Day Vocabulary, Valentine's Day Vocabulary, and Presidents Day Vocabulary. I'm working on the last one, which is for St. Patrick's Day, and plan to finish it in the next week or so.

And I am pleased to announce that these 3 resources will be on sale Tuesday and Wednesday, January 5th and 6th, 2021, for the #BoomInto2021 Sale! Normally they cost $2.00 each but during the sale, they'll be discounted to $1.00 each. Each resource has definitions of 20 words related to the holiday and students have to find the correct word that matches the definitions. The first card in every deck provides instructions that tell students what to do and includes a list of the target vocabulary words. All the definitions on the cards have audio so students with lower levels of reading proficiency can listen to them instead of or in addition to reading the definitions.
