I know... Crickets, right?
It's been a long while.
I'm not going to lie... I haven't missed blogging. Life has been way to crazy to worry with it. It seems as if I have been pulled in a thousand different directions in the month of November. It's not just a hectic time in my personal life, it's also one of the most hectic times in the classroom. The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas has so much to offer. Almost too much, really. Pinterest and blogs have made it even harder to pick and choose what you want to do with your little darlings, who, by the way, are crawling up the walls during this time. There are so many wonderful things to do between the turkey and the Christmas carols. Trying to fit it all in is impossible; trying to decide what to do makes me want to cry. The struggle is real, folks.
I've been teaching for eight years, and for at least seven of those years, two themes have remained constant in December: The Gingerbread Man and The Polar Express. I never tire of any of these topics, and there is SO MUCH you can do with them!
This year, I have created two very special math and literacy station packs that are perfect for those themes! Click the pictures below to check them out for yourself!
