I'm getting excited for the new year! I have been working away on creating penguin and polar animal activities for my kids.  We will be doing a research project on polar animals and I will be using the things I have listed on tpt to get my students actively engaged and excited to learn about polar animals.  Here is a little freebie.  Hope you enjoy! 
FREE Penguin Poem- Doing the Penguin

I'm linking up with teaching with Nancy! There are great freebies!

Have a great week!

Holiday Around the World

I am so excited to post my first few products on TpT!  

Reindeer Instructions including Reindeer Food directions and labels.
The First Product I posted was an interactive Reindeer story.  The students love this easy reader! It also helps reinforce positional words.

Purchase my Reindeer Instructions here.

I am also really excited to use them with my Kindergarten students.  I will be using this as an introduction to each country.  We will  "magic airplane" which will drop us off at each country.  During the countries visit we will use the booklet to learn about the countries holiday traditions, the location of each country using a world map and google earth, the flag that represents each country, and the elements of culture (how people speak, how people dress, what people eat, etc.)

Stay tuned for craft activities created by students while they were visiting their country.

First Day of Blogging

Today marks the first day of new beginnings!  In the last month and a half I have had a lot of changes.  To begin, I just moved next to an amazing teacher! She has inspired me and brought back the joy in teaching for me!  I am striving to start my Teachers pay Teachers store because of her :). 

I am also very excited to be teaching 21 wonderful Kindergarten students!  I can't wait to see them grow into magnificent learners.
