Jumping into January!

Happy New Year to all of you!
I'm still on vacation for a few more days!
Here are some fun ways to get your classroom feeling like winter when you return.

These fun little penguins use a white paper bag as their bellies. Then we add a little penguin fact book to the front. Here is a link to get the mini book for the front of any penguin you make!

I do a drawing lesson for each page 
they really come out cute.

Here in Huntington Beach we don't get any snow, it has been cool for us in the 40's in the morning. Brrr!
So to make us at least feel like it is winter we paint some kind on snowman mural. This was a fun snowmen rhyme. The children helped me make it up.

All 24 of us worked on it at the same time. 
(I painted the snowmen first with the help of my friends)

One snowman got cut off in the photo oops!

This is a perfect time to bring out your "magnadoodles" and sight word cards.
 I love putting the words on fun winter cutouts.
I hope 2013 brings you much joy, health and creativity!
