January Pick 3!

It's time for a Pinterest Party y'all!

I've linked up with teachers from all over to share my top three Pinterest Picks to use in my classroom in January.  The great thing about Christmas break is having lots of time to lay around in my jammies and read books, watch movies, and play on Pinterest!

My first pick is this super cute little anchor chart on New Years Resolutions.  I have my kiddos write resolutions every year, but I love this little chart for helping them understand what a resolution really is and why it's important.

My second pick are these super cute little arctic animal crafts!  We always do some research on arctic animals and write reports, and I'm thinking these little guys would really perk up our hallway display!  How cute is that walrus?!

My third pick is this little activity from The First Grade Parade.  I love the Snowmen at Night books, and this looks like the perfect writing activity to go along with it!  Plus the craft is super cute too.  I love activities like this that get my kiddos responding to text.  I'm going to have them make connections and write about where they would go and what they would do if they were a snowman at night.

Those are my picks for January...I hope you saw something you could use! 
Happy teaching!


  1. I think I have pinned the snowman pin too, but I love the arctic animal crafts. I am thinking of doing Arctic Animals as a theme for my weekly Thematic Thursday link up, so I've saved that pin. (Thank you!) Love your choices.

  2. The snowman project is so cute! I love connecting writing to art. The anchor chart will be a great way to teach students what a resolution is and help them with goal setting. We are studying arctic animals when we return to school, so that pin will be helpful. Thank you for sharing your pins and linking up with us! :)

  3. I love the arctic animal crafts...perfect for our upcoming unit on Arctic animals. Thanks for sharing and linking up! Wishing you a blessed 2016!

  4. Great pins! I love the arctic animals as well! So much fun to be had during the month of January. We're going to need it to keep the ship sailing into May! Happy New Year!

  5. Love the resolution anchor chart! I'll have to make one when we write ours this week. :)
    Thanks for sharing,

  6. Your blog is ADORBS! I love the torn paper snowman art. I've been eyeing the Arctic animals crafts on Pinterest, too. Thanks for linking up!!

  7. I'm liking that anchor chart. I think it's hard for young kids to understand what a resolution is, so this would definitely help!
