On the 7th day of Christmas...

I don't know if I can beat yesterday's Christmas fun fact, but here we go...

Alabama was the first state in the United States to officially recognize Christmas in 1836. Oklahoma was the last U.S. state to declare Christmas a legal holiday, in 1907. Christmas wasn’t declared an official holiday in the United States until June 26, 1870.

So, that makes 2013, the 144th official Christmas.  Fun!

Now, onto other news...today is day 7, in a "Teacher's 12 Days of Christmas!"  Today my newest product is being offered for 50% off!  If you follow closely, you will have the opportunity to scoop up 6 more teacher tools for a great holiday discount. Now would be a great time to follow me through Blog Lovin', by email in my sidebar, or on Facebook so you don't miss out. :)


It is time for my NEWEST Performance Task {Winter Fun}!


Performance Tasks are a great way to assess your students' problem solving and real-life application skills. The tasks require the students to demonstrate a variety of skills in order to complete. The students must implement knowledge of how the Common Core State Standards connect to each other while solving a performance task.

This special “Winter Fun” Performance Task was designed to meet a variety of Common Core State Standards geared towards grades 3-5, mainly in Math and Writing. Students will go through a day of winter fun including shoveling the driveway, sled riding, snowball throwing, caroling, and drinking hot chocolate! Your students will be completely engaged throughout this Performance Task!

Now, don't forget the best part! Many of my favorite TpT friends are participating as well...
