Penguin Freebie

Well, as many of you have already come to the realization, Winter Break has come to an end and we have to go back to school.  I know some of you went back this week - I go back on Monday, with the kids returning on Tuesday.

I thought that I better start my lesson plans, as much as I dread it.  I am planning on working in activities on penguins and polar bears the first few weeks back.  I love learning about polar animals!  I have made a few graphic organizers for penguins that I am sharing.  Just click on the the picture to grab a copy.

Also, I made a January calendar and a few pages of winter writing paper.  The graphics for these came from DJ Inkers.  I just love their graphics.  Just click on either picture to grab a copy.

I have so many things going through my head that I need to get done to prepare for my kiddos next week.  I have enjoyed spending time with my boys over the break and really haven't done anything for school.  Sometimes when our breaks come to an end, stress sets in.  I hope each of you have a wonderful start back to school.

Your writing paper and calendar look adorable! Thanks for sharing though I can't seem to access the files. Google Drive is saying that I don't have permission to access the files.
