New Year 2017 FREEBIE

What a whirlwind week it has been!  I knew that teaching until the 23rd would mean Christmas would be busy, but yikes - I went right from 20 super-excited, elf loving, energetic students to Christmas Eve overnight - literally!!!!!

But now ... RELAXATION is in order until January 9th!!  Netflix and I have some catching up to do!

A few weeks ago I updated my New Year's mystery picture but haven't had a chance to let you know.  Students solve to find the number, then color.

My kiddos get so excited when I copy the 2 pages side by side on an 11 X 17 piece of paper - which they think is a 'poster'.  :)

You can download this for FREE HERE.

I hope this helps make your January planning a little easier.  Enjoy and I'll be back in the near future with a new product I'm working on. :)

Magic Seeds!

Christmas is such a magical time for children and adults alike.  This activity will help keep that magic alive and get students doing some writing.

My classroom elf will be stopping by with some Tic-Tacs Magic Christmas Seeds, a bowl and some sugar.
He'll have instructions with him and I'll have a few candy canes tucked aside along with a writing flip book for them to record their observations.  My plan is to have the candy canes 'grow' when they are out for recess. :)

Candy Cane Investigations

Happy December!!!  I absolutely love the holidays and enjoying a few candy canes is no exception!  Using those yummy treats in my lesson planning is a no-brainer!   For that reason, I've put together my Candy Cane Investigations to engage students and get them writing!
This learning pack is editable to suit your students and their needs.  For my class I placed min candy canes in water, 7-Up and vinegar and let the magic happen!

I've provided lots of options and made it easy for you to differentiate.
