EEK! So excited for a long weekend =)! I only wish I could be on the beach too!
We have been doing a lot of math games to work on our number concepts. Kids were given many manipulatives to help them show the number 10. I loved seeing their creativity come out!
We began our penguin unit this past week and made some to hang from the ceiling. I am always shocked how empty the room looks with nothing there. We took the santas down upon returning from break and had to quickly make these cuties. Kids made snowballs and wrote a few of our high frequency words on them. We made an anchor chart with all of the things penguins can, are, and have after reading some informational texts. They really do a nice job recalling facts from the books.
I am using quite a bit from both of my packs while we meander through the Arctic. Please check them out in my shop. I have provided the links and a FREEBIE!

When we returned to school, I had my birthday and decided to make it fun for everyone. I let the kids wear pajamas to begin our arctic study, I made large snowflake cut out cookies, we studied our penguins, and watched "Happy Feet" during indoor recess with popcorn/drinks. It was a super fun day! I also got a long run in and enjoyed dinner with my family. Everything I hold dear to my heart!
Have a fantastic weekend!
