I have less than 72 hours left of Christmas Break. Really? Where did the days go? So I'm going to make the most of it. This weekend I plan on spending time with family and friends, taking the kids to watch a movie and maybe ordering pizza for dinner tonight....hmmmm...that sounds good.
If you are already back at work or are heading back on Monday (like I am), I have some things that might help ease you into the new year.
My themes for January this year are Winter, Snowmen and a book study on The Mitten by Jan Brett. Last year we also learned about Penguins but since we are on a 2-year rotation with our themes, it will have to wait until next January.
Here are a few ***FREEBIES*** I posted last year but thought you might like them. Click on the pictures to take you to the link.
Yes, they are all FREE!!!!
These are the units and activities we will be working on for the month of January.

And my best selling item last winter...
Have you ever tried Write the Room as one of your Literacy Centers? I use it every day with my Kinders and they LOVE it! They always want me to choose their group to go and do the activity. I hide theme-based words around the room and they search for them and record the words they find using a clipboard. I have a variety of worksheets so I tailor them for individual student needs.
I have 2 different theme-based ones you can use in January.
Phew! That's all of it (for now). I think that will get you through winter and into spring. HA! I'm busy with some more fun things up my sleeve! In the meantime, I hit 1000 blog followers last weekend during my big New Year's Eve giveaway! I'm sorry I haven't celebrated until now so.....I think this calls for a quick giveaway!!!
The first 3 people to comment below on their favourite winter activity can choose any winter item from my store! That's it - easy, peasy, lemon-squeezy (sorry, my 4-year old has been saying that lately! It's kind of stuck in my head!).
Enjoy the weekend (I know I sure will!)!!!!!
