I am so grateful that so many awesome teachers share their wonderful ideas and projects on line. We've always said teaching is all about beg, borrowing and stealing. Thanks for stopping by.

What timing! We were working on our snowglobes, making a snowman glyph and writing about how to make a snowman, and reading about Snowflake Bentley
(not all at the same time) when it started snowing outside. The kids were so excited that we just had to go out and see if we could catch snowflakes on black paper and examine them. Some of them were lucky enough to actually see the different pattern of the flakes. I just love these pictures of the kids looking closely at the flakes. They were having a blast and really got to see that all snowflakes are different. It was a blast.
Happy New Year and welcome back to school! We started back on Wednesday and I was glad to see kids. They seemed happy to be back too. I was so busy over break surfing blogs and putting together different units I came across. I came across quite a few incredible teacher's blogs and was so excited about all the projects they post and share. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I made many of the center activities which the kids loved. This bulletin board is an idea which came from the snowman unit from Mrs. Jump's blog. It turned out so cute and my students had fun with it. We did several of the ideas from her unit. They were a blast to do.
Thanks for stopping by, more to come soon.
