Silence for Sandy Hook

I am literally heart broken over yesterday's events. I've cried multiple times and cannot even fathom what the families, friends, and staff of Sandy Hook are experiencing at this moment. Sadly, as a teacher, we are required to train and prepare for the unspeakable but pray that we will never resort to using it. While the crimes are changing with the times, it's still the same ole devil at work. And thankfully (Praise God), the same Savior! I am taking comfort in the fact that the God I serve,  cares for all the families that are experiencing sadness due to their losses and is rejoicing with 20 sweet babies in heaven! I'm claiming Psalms 46:1, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." Please join me in prayer and a time of silence in remembrance of this awful tragedy. I will certainly be hugging my students a little tighter on Monday.

Sadly, there will be a lot of rewind posts over the next few weeks. ha Although Thanksgiving is behind us, some of the stuff we did in my classroom is just too sweet not to share. I'll be doing some flashback posts over the next few weeks so please hang with me. Anyways, I wanted to share with you my December Homework Pack. I've partnered up with Katie Mense from Little Warriors to create monthly homework packs. We so appreciate you being patient with us both and providing us with wonderful feedback. I'm loving the opportunity to work with Katie - she is great! Check out what we've made for this month.
