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!
