Needs and Wants



What does Santa need to survive in the North Pole? What does he want but can do without there? Let your kiddos decide using this fantastic set of printables!

This is a two-poster set that explains needs and wants to your little ones. I include varying versions of a printable sheet that your students can list or draw Santa's needs and wants.

This product does NOT contain any picture sorting activities.

Teaching Phonics Sounds

Teaching every aspect of our language is made easy with the right tools. As an elementary teacher there is always some intrigue when I hear about students who cannot read because of one reason or another. I love teaching but more specifically, I love to get my kids excited and motivated to become independent readers.
It's been a while since my last post in July. I have added lots of resources to my store of late but here are the most recent ones for purchase. Click on the pictures to be taken to my TPT store.
