Winter Blues and a FLASH GIVEAWAY!

I am taking some time during this VERY COLD weekend to prep my word cards and word walls for January, and I decided why not have a giveaway??

Here are a few things from the January unit:
Mini Word Walls

January Word Cards

 January Word Cards and Word Wall is 35 Pages of cuteness, fun and inspiration including:
Word cards in English
Word cards in Spanish
Blank word cards
Mini word wall in English
Mini word wall in Spanish
Bubble Maps
Alphabetical Order Activity
Writing Prompt
Making Words activity

The second unit I'm working on is
The Mitten Word Cards!  This one is 30 pages including:
Word cards in English
Word cards in Spanish
Blank word cards
Mini word wall in English
Mini word wall in Spanish
Story Retelling Props (in B&W and Color)
1 Beginning/Middle/End Writing Activity
1 Bubble Map
1 Venn Diagram (The Hat and The Mitten)
1 Alphabetical Order Activity
1 Writing Prompt

You can use just the English, just the Spanish or both!  I use the word cards and mini word walls to inspire writing in my little ones during writer's workshop, or during our literacy centers.  We use them in pocket charts, hole punch them and put them on binder rings.  The kids use them to write stories, respond to literature, spell with magnet letters or tiles, copy on magna doodles or dry erase boards and so much more!  My kids are OBSESSED.  And so am I!  I have never seen so much action in my writing center during our literacy block.

I like reading blogs about the different books teachers use - especially season like books. I just bought Sneezy Snowman from Amazon because of Deanna Jumps blog. I try to incorporate literature into many aspects of what I teach...I only have my kinders for 2 1/2 hours a day so I incorporate as much as I can into that small time frame. My favorite "thing" to teach about is seasons and the different things that happen during that season. As where I live now, we do not have "seasons". I also try to find things that are not native to where we live: farms, oceans, snow, grass, trees, etc. Right now we will be learning about winter and things that happen during the winter time.

In January, I like to read and do activities about snowmen, specifically, Caralyn Buehner's books. Love them! And, love your mitten activities! Looks amazing! Jan Brett is a favorite of mine, too!
