I love this time of the year. I love driving around and seeing all of the decorations on houses. I love going into Manhattan to see the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center and walking along 5th Ave to see all the stores and their decorated store windows. It's the time of the year when people get into the holiday spirit and do things for each other. When the idea of this blog hop was presented by http://www.makingitteacher.com I got really excited about joining some of my fellow secondary teachers in this generous endeavor.
While the holidays are an exciting time of the year for so many people, it is also a stressful time of the year. If you haven't finished your shopping yet, the stores are crowded and full of agitated people. People lose their holiday spirit and fight over parking spots and other silly things. Who wants to deal with the stress of going to a crowded mall and then come home and write lesson plans? Every day during this blog hop, generous middle school and high school teachers are offering free items and today is my turn. I have decided to list three items from my TpT store for free for 24 hours. The links are posted below. Please download these items while they're free and hopefully they will save you time so that you can go holiday shopping, spend time with your family, decorate your house or any of the other things we need to do this time of the year. I hope you enjoy what I have decided to offer.

Assorted Handouts and Activities for The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Now for a contest. This is my first blog hop and I have decided to do a contest in addition to offering three free items. The person that wins this contest will get a $25 shopping spree in my TpT Store. In the comment section of this blog tell me the funniest thing that has ever happened in your classroom. Please leave the story along with your email address. I know this might sound a bit silly but I injured my foot yesterday and I could use some comic relief. I will check the comment section on December 13th which is the day after the blog hop ends and the person that has the funniest story in the comment section will win and get an email from me asking you what items you would like for free. Happy Holidays :-)
