This is your first post of 2016! I promise not to neglect you this year. I will make an effort to write with you several times each month.

Doodle Bugs Teaching?? I've found lots of good teacher blogs in her link parties.
Tuesday-The kids came back to school. They were VERY quiet! Like scary quiet. We set New Year's resolutions for home and school..The kids made a cute craft and writing but of course I forgot to take a picture. Oops! ...You can find this foldable book here.
Next, we read The Mitten. I love that there are T.O.N.S of activities on Pinterest and TPT for this book.
Each year, I do a sequence activity with this book. I found this activity and really liked it! You can find it here.
Wednesday-The Hat. I didn't know this book existed until this week. The kids really liked it. A couple of them noticed this book had farm type animals and The Mitten had forest animals. After they mentioned that, we had to compare them.
Thursday-The Snowy Day. I read a teacher blog that said she planned to do a lot of activities using snow. I wish we got snow. We only usually get ice :( When we read this book, my students couldn't really make a personal connection with it. Most have never been in deep snow. A few have never built a snowman..This book is awesome for cause and effect..I found this freebie on TPT. You can grab it here.
Friday-Tacky The Penguin We dressed up tacky for our friend Tacky The Penguin.
This is a great activity for the book. I chose to do it whole group.
I hope you have a restful weekend. I am enjoying my rainy lazy day!
