Oh, The Weather Outside IS Frightful

Howdy friends!
Winter has struck the Littles in room 5!
It was so cold here we were unable to go outside for recess for nearly 3 whole days {YIKES}!  Needless to say we had plenty to keep us busy.  Here are the past two weeks in pictures.

What Comes Next number/counting activity

Making new words using the letters from SNOWMEN and Label the Snowman
{from Cara Carroll's Frosty & Friends and Deedee Wills' Writing Workstation Complete Set}

They LOVE puzzles!
The Snowman's Buttons math book

Penguin Pattern Book {from Growing Kinders}and Fingerprint Penguins

Eskimo Vowel Sort

My Pet Penguin writing and chalk drawing

Penguins Can...

Pattern Block Snowflakes



Winter Senses mini book







Picture Crossword Puzzle and Label the Snowman Cut & Glue



I started sending home a Family Book Report each week with the library book they choose.  They are doing such a wonderful job!



When I saw this post from the First Grade Parade last year, I just knew my Littles could handle this Snowmen at Night craftivity and writing activity.  I just LOVE their art work!

Completed My Pet Penguin activity

Completed fingerprint penguins




Winter Window Scene




On top of all of this fun, we had assessments and parent teacher conferences.  Whew!  You just can't skip a beat when you are a kindergarten teacher!


Finally...I hit the jackpot at the Target Dollar Spot!!!  
Planning for February is going to be SO.MUCH.FUN with all of this good stuff!


Our Dinosaur unit starts tomorrow {CUH-RAZY learning goes on during this unit}.  So hands on and an absolute blast to teach!

  1. Love those fingerprint penguins. Adorable!!! I will need to keep this in mind when I start working on penguins. Looks like your kiddos were busy and having fun. That's the best way!

  2. Yeah - indoor recess looses it's appeal after a few days! Hopefully the weather will warm up soon. But it looks like you have a bunch of cuties in your class!! Renee

  3. WOW you have been busy Tanya! I just love all your art projects, especially the fingerprint penguins and winter window scenes. And I adore the pattern block snowflakes, I definitely need to remember that for next year! :) We were cooped up inside too, it was crazy. I am so glad the weather changed this week so we can be outside!

    P.S. I still need to email you! I totally forgot in between updating assessments and break and whatever else I've been doing!
