Happy New Year!! I hope you enjoyed your winter break. Now that it’s time to get back in the swing of things at school, I wanted to share a few things that could add some excitement to the classroom. I often go to classrooms to read to students. They look at it as a special treat. I try to pick books that match the season, or the theme that the classroom is working on. Here are some of my favorite winter stories to read!
In the past, I have found that dressing up has really helped my students stay engaged in lessons. It was a part of my “hook” that always pulled them in to learning.
This year, I wanted to make it a little more exciting, so I ordered some simple costumes from Oriental Trading that would help me get students engaged in reading. I chose a reindeer and snowman costume. They are simple, and easy to take on and off.
Oriental Trading has some awesome winter crafts and ideas that will help students stay active and engaged during the cold winter months! Be sure to check them out. Have fun this winter!
