Snow Tubes and a St. Patrick's Day Mini Writing Unit

In case you don't remember all of the times I have complained about how much snow there is where I live, I will now remind you. But, this time, I wanna show you how much fun all that snow can be. There is so much of it, where I live, that we just made our annual trip to the tubing hill with my Firsties! Basically, you grab a tube, attach it to a whole bunch of other people's tubes and then slide down the hill as one big snow loving gang. Then, the best part - you don't even have to walk back up the hill, there's a lift that brings you up. What more could a lazy girl ask for? You can check the fun out here.





So, snow can be a good thing. Sometimes. I do want to go on record though that, by and large, I don't like it all. I am looking forward to Spring and I've been slowly getting ready for St. Patrick's Day. That leprechaun can end up sneaking up on ya and you find yourself not quite ready for him, so this year, I will be ready. I just finished up this writing pack - it's a mini pack, but there's just enough stuff in there to keep those little ones thinking, creating and working hard. I love short people! If you'd like it, I'll give it to the first 4 people who leave a comment.
Thanks for reading!

    1. Thanks Diane. We don't really have any restrictions for trips except the 1 to 8 ratio, adults to kids, but I usually just bring a parent or there's an extra teacher. It was so fun!
