New Year activities

Wow! The New Year is already here and I can hardly believe how quickly it arrived. - 2015! We often think that after Christmas everything slows down but if you really think about it there are so many other events that approach quickly. - In January we have Chinese New Year, Ground Hog Day is at the beginning of February, Quebec City in Canada celebrates the Quebec Winter Carnival and of course "love is in the air" with Valentine's Day soon approaching in February. Have I given you a few ideas as to how to get through the sometimes difficult months of January and February? On the West Coast here we basically have an umbrella attached to our arms for the winter months, however, I must admit that so far this winter it has been much clearer and we have seen many more "blue sky" days. Sometimes we go for weeks without seeing the sun and we laugh about experiencing all 4 seasons in ONE day. But that's just the way it is on the "wet" coast. Here are some of the activities that I use in my classroom to help us get through these darker and wet days. Perhaps you will find something that you can use too. :) Happy Teaching!
