Peek at My Week - Week 1 2016

Good Evening!

Tonight I am sad and excited. I am sad because vacation is over and I no longer get to spend all day with my sweet girl but I am also excited to return to the classroom. As exhausting, crazy, frustrating, and overwhelming teaching can be, I truly love it and have missed my firsties.

To start the week off I am linking up with Mrs. Wills Kindergarten for her Peek at My Week linky. Check it out and link up if you can. I have come across some great ideas and products from this linky.
 This week we are easing back into things as I am sure their attention spans will be pretty short. We have a New Year's Resolution craftivity that we will be making tomorrow afternoon. I love talking to my firsties about what they want their goals to be for the year. Some of them come up with some pretty good ones and some come up with some unique ones which makes it very entertaining.

My teaching partner will be doing a book study with our firsties on The Hat by Jan Brett so we will be doing a Hedgie Webquest to learn more about hedgehogs. It is such a cute and informative activity. They love it every year.

We will also be starting our unit on Matter this week. I am hoping to find something to spice up this unit a little bit and make it more exciting for the kids. For this week though we are going to cover the reading and do a few simple activities.

So all in all there isn't too much going on this week but it will be a great first week back. A link to any products I am using can be found below my plans.
