Today I would like to introduce you to a great book for reading aloud to your students during the cold winter months.....Toys Meet Snow by Emily Jenkins.
The winter season with all it's wonder and beauty is upon us. I am excited to be teaming up with other teachers from the Reading Crew to share some of our favorite mentor text lessons for the season.
Mentor texts are one of the most valuable resources in my classroom because they highly engaging and can be used to teach a variety of skills. Regardless of your curriculum needs, there is a mentor text available that your student's are guaranteed to love.

As of 9:00AM (CST) on January 3rd, sign-ups for this year's exchange are closed. The response has been amazing and I am excited for all classrooms that are participating.
Looking to add some fun to your classroom during the cold winter months? Last month's Gingerbread Exchange was such a success and I am looking forward to kicking of the third annual Valentine Exchange.

Whether your students celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Las Posadas, Kwanzaa, Chinese New Year, (or all of them!), they are always excited to learn about other countries and their holiday celebrations too! In this post, you'll find tons of creative ideas and resources for an awesome and engaging unit on Christmas Around the World!
My students have always loved learning about the holiday traditions and beliefs of other cultures! This topic is filled with opportunities to ALSO teach about geography too! Plus, it's always great to expand your students' horizons as they learn about other countries. They will become more culturally aware and the world becomes a smaller, friendlier place for them when they can relate to, and empathize with, other world citizens.
