January Activities

As gloomy as January sometimes seems to be {the after Christmas blues}, I really love teaching this time of year. My students seem to come back from Christmas break as new, independent learners!

I posted about some *free* January themed activities that you can check out {here}.

I also have this fun word search that I made for January that you can download free {here}.

Here's what we're doing in our classroom next:
This cute board is from Really Roper. She's got a free mini-unit! Go get it (here)!

Then, we've got this amazing unit that we'll do the second week of January:
I love this unit! You can get this one from Deanna Jump {here}.

And lastly for January, we'll be learning about bears. This is from my Bear Unit.
You can find it {here} on sale today and tomorrow only!

Have a great break! :)

I love these ideas! I am obsessed with all of the DJ Inkers January clip art pictures! Thank you for the pictures that always give me "new" ideas and brain pops!

I have several snowmen and penguin *freebies* if you want to come over and grab them! =)

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!

I really appreciate that you put up free activities....I am teaching 2nd grade this year for the first time after years of 5th and I get so frustrated that alot of blogging teachers want you to buy the cutest things. Teaching is about sharing, or it should be. I understand paying for a whole unit theme, but 3 dollars for a word search? come on! I love your site and have shown it to all my teaching buddies. Thank you for your extra to our profession!

Additionally, when a money related circumstance is such that the card holder is looking for quick money, it is very likely that an installment might be late or even missed, which can bring about considerably higher financing costs being charged on the aggregate obligation.
