Snow Day in May and a FREEBIE!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful, hard-working moms!  I don't know how you do it all.  :)  A special Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful mama and mother-in-law too!  I'm a lucky girl!

It's been a very busy week.  I was working on my 3 trillion things to do.  I did manage to cross off a couple of items cross off a whole bunch of things.... 

I just posted my Snow Day in May!? pack and I think it's adorable!!   Yep, you read that right....we're having a snow day in May!  I live in Ohio and we usually get a snow day or two, but this year we didn't get any!  I'm not complaining about the nice weather at all, but who doesn't enjoy a snow day every once in awhile?? :)

Well, my kiddos and I thought it would be fun to create our own snow day so we're having one in May!  We're going to be reviewing some first grade skills with some snow day themed fun.  

Everything in this pack is ready to use!  There is no cutting or laminating to do!  That's what we need at the end of the year....simple and ready to go.  The only materials you will need are construction paper for the snowman and snow cone ingredients!

Here is a look at what's in the pack along with a list of what you'll get:
Page 1- Cover
Page 2- Table of Contents
Pages 3-4 Teacher Info Pages
Page 5- Main Idea
Page 6- Author’s Purpose
Page 7- Summary
Page 8- Snow Day Words
Page 9- Compound Words
Pages 10-13 Word Sorts (ow, oa, o-e)
Pages 14-18: Adjectives and Writing Prompts
Page 19: Story Problems
Page 20: Double Digit Subtraction
Page 21: Double Digit Addition
Pages 23-24: Graphing: 2 copies with one blank to add  your own treats
Page 25: Word Search
Page 26: Snowman Craft
Page 27: Snowflake Craft
Page 28: Parent Letter
Page 29: Snow Cone Recipe
Page 30: THANK YOU!

And, since it's Mother's Day I'm adding this freebie:

Just make sure you leave me a comment if you take it!  :)

I've included an easy snow cone recipe in here to end the day with, but I just bought snow cone flavoring.  It's up to you!  There is also a parent letter because my kiddos will be allowed to wear their winter items if they want to and bring sunglasses to wear while we enjoy the snow cones!  

If you live in an area that doesn't get any snow, this could be your chance for a snow day!!  At the very least, it will add some fun to your end of the year routine...and review some important skills while you're at it.  

I'm off to celebrate with my mama and my mother-in-law!  Enjoy your day moms, soon-to-be moms, and wanna-be moms!  :)

This sounds like a lot of fun! I live in the desert and we had one fluke blizzard about 4 years ago. That will probably be my only Snow Day I will every have here. I never thought to make my own Snow Day. Great idea!

Thank you for the freebie! Very cute idea! I am originally from Kent and now I live in Southeastern Ohio. We only had 1 snow day this year. Usually we have 5-7 days off.

Thank you for the comment on my blog! I'm so excited to have a fellow Northeast Ohio-an blogger friend! I love all your ideas and packets on TpT. Didn't we have such a crazy winter this year? I think this was the first year we didn't have a single snow day either! Do you know any other Ohio bloggers? We should have an Ohio blogger meet-up! I always see other states doing that and I'm jealous!
