Cupakes, Christmas, Freebies--OH My?

So, for those of you who don't already know.....I LOVE BAKING!!!  I took a few different samples of cupcakes into work for my coworkers to taste test---and I've been approached by a few to purchase from me (they all know that I really want a bakery someday).  Picture it....I want a store similar to Barnes and Noble/Starbucks.......BUT it's filled with teacher goodies and fattening foods with coffee.  That's my dream anyways--CRAZY, I know.

Anyhoo--here are the cupcakes I made for one of my coworkers (who also happens to be a great friend---AND one my son's teacher--she's awesome!)  The picture doesn't do the cupcakes justice--but when you're up to your elbows in flour, you don't wanna dig for your camera. 

You can click the picture to grab the recipe if you like. 

Okay---I've been a busy gal tonight.  My upstairs has been cleaned, the cupcakes have been made, the mess from that has been cleaned, but then I thought---I was trying soooo hard to make a freebie every night leading to Christmas (well at least Christmas break for me)--so I did a quick label/diagram of a deer.  He's kinda cute---don't ya think?  Gotta love ya some DJ Inkers.
You can click on him to grab him if you'd like.  Ohh---one more freebie...I had someone ask/mention the homework Tic-Tac-Toe boards.  I made another one to send as enrichment for some of my firsties.  Here's the new Homework Board.  I do like using these, and I've not seen them for  reading/language....so if anyone happens to come across some, please shoot me a message.  You can click the image below to grab the Tic-Tac-Toe board.

Hopefully one of these freebies helped someone out.  So, am I good for 3 days or would you like another freebie tomorrow? :)  Let me know! :)


  1. Thanks for sharing the reindeer label sheet! We're doing labels right now and it fits just perfectly!

  2. Thank you so much for the labeling freebie! We will be doing letter R and reindeer soon! This is perfect!

  3. Thanks for sharing. I like the label reindeer sheet.

  4. Thanks for sharing! The reindeer is so cute and I'm totally excited to try the cupcakes! I love to bake!

  5. LOVE the homework idea and the deer!! THANK YOU so very much for sharing. Dang, wish I lived/worked near you, sure would love some cupcakes;)

  6. Hey Deanne! Love your freebies. Thanks for sharing them. I have an ELA TTT board on my website you might like: https://sites.google.com/site/ateachersbagoftricks/freebies-from-me. It's toward the bottom of the page. I have some of the activity sheets that go with the board on this page, too. It might be something you can use. =)

  7. You're very welcome everyone!! As for the cupcakes, I wish y'all lived closer---I try to put them in the freezer so I WON'T eat them, but then I realized I like them just as well frozen too...YIKES!!

    @Jo--GREAT RESOURCES! :) THANKS for sharing your link!

  8. I love the Tic-Tac-Toe Homework idea. Are you doing it weekly? I am trying to decide if I should do it every week to go along with our skills or every other week.

  9. Puddiesmom--I try to do the tic-tac toe boards every other week---and alternate between reading and math. Doing it every other week gives me enough skills to review the things we're working on. My principal uses them for his son in Kindergarten. He has them do every box---one box a night.


First Grade and Fabulous
