Just a quick post about what went on my class last week.  All the kids were super chatty as they were so happy to see one another after 2 weeks apart.  We did, however, manage to get this cute craftivity done for New Years' 

to check out my store for the top half.  

I decided to use this little freebie from the Frog Spot to finish up the bottom.

Here's a quick look at some art that was around my school this week.

January 2016 Currently

I had a chance to join in on Farley's currently linky this week.  She's been very sick these past few months.  Hop on by to her blog and check out her story.  Drop her a comment too, I'm sure she'd love the thoughts and prayers.

Right now, hubby and I are listening to the Montreal Comedy Festival on the PVR.  We are enjoying a night to ourselves finally after a long week full of family.  

I have come to realize, yet again, how wonderful my family is and how lucky we are to have all our family living within walking distance.  I mean between my hubby and I, both sets of parents and all 5 siblings, live in walking distance.  We all have children under 10 years old, which makes Christmas so much fun.  We haven't had to endure Christmas visitors who stay for days, and days, yet we have seen our family almost every day this holidays and it has been fun.

I am thinking about school starting this week, and I am glad it is not this week ask it is VERY COLD outside this week.  Vancouver doesn't usually get terribly cold in the winter, but it's been below zero (freezing) all week.  I'm glad I haven't had to go outside too often.

Despite having a great holiday, I would totally welcome another week off - so that's what I truly want, but I know I'm lucky to get 2 weeks off over Christmas as it is.

I desperately need a new computer.  We'll see if that's in the cards for me this year.

And my one little word is 'rest'.  Despite sleeping in almost every day this holiday I am still catching up.  2 nights ago we had an earthquake at 11:30 pm.  I was asleep and slept right through it.  I slept for 14 hours that night, as I have most nights this holiday.  I hope I catch up before monday!

Please stop by Farley's blog and check out this linky.  It's so much fun to join on in.

Social Studies and Science Combined Units

So I've been working a lot on adding science resources to my store.
Each of the animals listed below are part of my Canadian Animal research bundle. I've chosen animals which are symbols of Canada to allow for a mix of Social Studies, and Science goals in one program.  You can get each of these animals individually, or get the whole bundle.  Click on each picture for more information.

So we've been really focusing on Christmas in my classroom this year.  We spent a number of days putting together these dough ornaments.  My teaching colleague found this idea on Pinterest and we modified it a bit.  We made the dough and rolled it out.  The kids cut out the circle shapes using a glass as a cookie cutter.  We baked them in the oven for an hour and then let them dry overnight.  The kids painted the white background and then added the nose and eyes with paint applied with a Qtip.  Then the mouth and eyebrows were added with a sharpie.  Finally the entire thing was finished with a layer of Modge Podge for a glossy look.  Next week we are finishing up our gingerbread kids and I'll post them up here for you.

In Math we have been working on number concept to 100.  I've been using a variety of resources, but this photo below shows some comparing number activities we did using playing cards and the worksheets from my unit on playing cards.

These adorable elves are made by the class across the hall from me.  Aren't they adorable?

AND, have you seen these reindeer around Pinterest????
Last year they went viral.  I was surprised to get one on a Christmas card from my nephew.
The fantastic art teacher who came up with these cuties, teaches next door to me.
