Are you ready for the new year? I am! I’m definitely in favor of leaving the old behind and ringing in the new.
A Sale For the New Year
Check out this hashtag sale, #TOAST23, on TpT so you can snag some fabulous dollar deals! What better way to get excited about teaching and learning in 2024?
Last time I checked there were over 2,000 resources listed. But you need to hurry as these deals are only available on December 31, 2023, and January 1, 2024.
With so many resources to choose from, you’ll want to use the categories on the left-hand side of your screen to narrow down your search by grade level and subject area.
You’ll find two of my resources listed in this sale. My Activities to Introduce and Teach the Concept for the Addition Fact Strategy Adding 9 is a year-round seller. The CVC Words – Minimal Contrast Decoding Activity is a newer resource.
Find a blog post with more resources, ideas, and a freebie for using minimal pairs for bite-sized decoding practice.

An Updated New Year’s Freebie for You
The year on this freebie has been changed to 2024.
I’ve never succeeded at making or keeping New Year’s resolutions. Have you? Here’s a free resource for 2024 that’s a little different.
The focus is on anticipating the possibilities a new year offers. I’m all for instilling a little hope for a better future right now.
Try this activity with children of various ages, at home or at school. The clipart and the prompts are geared toward children but the activity is suitable for all ages. The youngest can dictate their responses. You can also have children choose to respond to just 3 to 5 prompts or to complete them over more than one session.
Simply download, print, and provide writing tools.
Then, do a little brainstorming and you’re all set.
Use the first word as a prompt to complete the phrase in a way that’s meaningful for you. For example, I might finish “Give” with “lots of hugs”. Whereas my five-year-old grandson might add “New York City” to “See”. Ah… the possibilities are wide-ranging!
