Fantastic FREEBIES!

I recently presented at both the New Jersey Kindergarten Teacher Conference and the Pennsylvania Kindergarten Teacher Conference hosted by SDE (Staff Development for Educators).  I loved sharing ideas about what is working in my classroom with everyone in attendance at each of my sessions.  I met so many other wonderful educators and we were able to share ideas and talk about things that are working in our individual classrooms!   I had many individuals interested in the items that I shared for centers, sight words, etc.  As a result, I am sharing TONS of freebies that you may find helpful as well.  Enjoy!  Click on the links to grab each file. 

Clearly Blogger and I are not getting along all that well...ignore the spacing...the files are there and the links are working!  :)

If something doesn't download correctly, please let me know and I'll change the settings.  Thanks for your patience and for your time!  I hope you found a few things that you can use!
