Happy "howl"idays from my little fur babies!
I have been a little busy over the last month because I got engaged to this guy!
Our wedding will be on March 5, 2016, so we have been busy bees making tons of plans.
Sprinkles to us!
When we returned from Thanksgiving break, my littles were welcomed with a package under the tree.
Inside of it was our kindness reindeer named Snowflake. Each day she delivers a letter from Santa about how we can show kindness to others at home and school.
We also learned about reindeer and had some reindeer races to see who should pull Santa's sleigh.
We raced the reindeer with balloon jets to see who could get to the finish line first.
I love glyphs and tied reindeer fun into this little glyph.
Another polar animal we learned about were polar bears. We learned how they stay warm with a blubber glove. I added my fun little light ice to our freezing water.
We created dioramas of the arctic for our polar bears to live in.
One lesson we did really touched my littles. We placed a polar bear on a block of ice in a cup and watched it throughout the day. At the end of the day we saw the bear in a cup of water. I explained that this is what is happening to their homes - they're melting away. My sweeties were very upset about the truth that the polar bear's homes are melting that we wanted to make a change.
We decided to do a fund-raiser play by Heidi Songs based on the children's book, The Mitten. We are inviting families to attend and bring any change to donate so we can make a change for the polar bears. We are only collecting change so that we can sort it and master those coin TEKS as well. ;) All of our money will go to Polar Bears International.
I will be posting more about our play soon!
Next week is a Holidays Around the World week as we round up the semester and begin Christmas break. We will be making our little suitcases tomorrow for our travels.
Snatch this freebie up from my store!
Have a merry week!
