Wintery fun and lots of freebies :)

We had a "Cold Day" Monday and a teacher workday Tuesday so my days are all messed up in my head...I can't believe it's already Friday tomorrow!

I can't tell you how excited I am to actually live in seasons now! I saw snow outside my window on Monday! It lasted about 10 min and didn't collect on the ground at all but yall I am a Florida girl and I saw SNOW and it was a little bit magical :) We been having fun with some winter activities this week.

On the first day back from break I always love to do "learning resolutions" with my kids. We talk about the things they want to learn in the new year. The answers are always hilarious. Here are a few of my favorites:


"I want to learn to make cheese dip"
"I want to learn more art because I'm probably going to be an artist"


One of my favorite January activities :)  You can grab the page here. I made a 2015 version in case you want to file it away for next year.

We are working on long vowels with silent e and vowel teams right now in reading. Today while I was pulling some reading groups they made these flap books. I had them highlight the vowel team or silent e pattern and then sort them out. It made for great fluency practice and helped me see who was still struggling with those tricky vowels!


You can grab the pages for this here and here.

I have always made these cute name snowmen and I love them!



Since I'm in 1st this year I decided to amp it up a little with this activity. I found this idea on Pinterest the other day (originally from Kinderdi) , and adapted the response page for my class.

 (Sorry for the shadowy picture...I really need to invest in a new camera!)
