January Pinterest Pick 3

I'm so thrilled to participating in another Pinterest Pick 3 linky with the very talented ladies Marissa from Inspired Owl's Corner and Lisa from Pawsitively Teaching. Click on the images to be taken to the original Pinterest pin/link.
When we return for winter break I plan to jump right into Amy's from Learning Lessons with Mrs. Labrasciano fabulous Chinese New Year unit.  Since I have a student this year who celebrates Chinese New Year, I love how this unit is not only aligned with the Common Core, it is fun and engaging, and educationally enriching!
 This is one of my favorite projects and I do it every year.  After reading the book Snowmen at Night we love making these beautiful snowmen that include our writing samples of what we think snowmen do at night.  It makes a great hallway display!
I use this gem in one of my word work stations and it is always a favorite and best of's FREE!  Students love using a magnifying glass to find the hidden sight words in the picture.
Make sure you check out the other fabulous ideas from the talented bloggers who have also linked up.  I get my best ideas here!
Happy New Year to you!
