Thankfully I put away all of my Christmas and winter holiday decor on the last day of school and had pulled out the snowflakes, Martin Luther King Jr. posters so they'd be ready for the stapler today.
Living in Oz means my students are required to learn about and celebrate Kansas Day (January 29). While we learn about our state symbols, we also observe changes in the weather, learn about MLK Jr., pick up several more sight words, work with addition and subtraction, and look for patterns in numbers to thirty. My Super Stars paint, find and work with environmental print, get their craft on, and continue exploring their kindergarten world while hoping and wishing for snow to fall:
Are ~*your*~ fingers crossed for snow days?
