Happy New Year!

Hello all! I hope this day finds you happy! I am currently drinking coffee on the couch since we don't go back till Thursday! I guess complaining about the extra three days we went before Christmas were worth it!
Now that we are in the new year, I sat down with the planner last night to map out January. Our main theme will be penguins! I know most people are doing this too, and I already am loving all the things people are posting. I will be using Deanna Jump's penguin unit and I cannot wait! The activities look so cute! I will also be doing activities with Jan Brett books. I just bought Made for 1st Grade's smitten with mittens unit. Cannot wait to put those out there. They make the cutest stuff!
I will be doing new year's resolutions with my kiddos on Monday to start the new year off right! I posted about them here from last year. I will be also using Cara Carroll's awesome FREE unit with new year's activities! I will be leaving those for a sub since I will be in NOLA to cheer on my tigers!
Also, MLK Jr. day is right around the corner! I made this after I saw the activity on pinterest. I think it is such a great way to show students that we are not different on the inside!
Here is a worksheet to go along with activity I made!
MLK Egg Experiment
I am currently working on a little winter creative writing unit. Just a collection of fun writing activities with a cute wintery theme! I hope to have it done by the end of the week! 

O and here is a cute pic of me and the manfriend from new year's in NOLA!

3 notes to the teacher:


Thanks for the freebie! I saw the egg idea also, but I like the addition of some writing to that lesson. Cute picture too! Thanks! ~Heidi V.

I love your idea for the MLK egg activity. However, Scribd won't let me print it without paying. I did print a couple of things, but it won't let me print anything else. Are you aware of that?

Sorry to hear that! I was liking scribd too because google docs and I were not getting along well. BUT I have the MLK egg sheet on my TPT store for free!
