Mending a Broken Heart Fundraiser

Dear Friends,

I want to let you know about a fabulous opportunity to help a wonderful little girl who is in 2nd grade at Jodi's (Fun in First) school.  Her name is Katelyn.  She was born with Complex Congenital Heart Disease.  She is missing the pulmonary valve in her heart, so her right ventricle never grew.  She was given a pacemaker last April, but as her health continued to worsen, it was decided that she needed a life saving heart transplant.  Through all this, she still has a smile on her face.  What an inspiration to all of us and a sweet reminder to cherish every day that we have been given and also to cherish the ones that are around us and never take them for granted.  

Many of us have teamed up to offer over 130.00 worth of products for a donation of 25.00 to help Katelyn.  ALL of the money will be donated to the Children's Organ Transplant Association (COTA) in Katelyn's name.  

Please go over to Jodi's blog and see all the wonderful products.

Winter Success Kit

Sorry that this is so short.  I have got to get a good night rest.  It took me longer than anticipated to get this unit done, but I absolutely LOVE it.  My kids have been so excited doing these activities.  TPT finally decided to cooperate with me so it is up and ready to go.  351 pages with a lot of differentiated recording sheets and activities to go with them.  I love having the variety and it really helps my kids all feel successful.  Enjoy!
