January Jumble!

January is jam-packed full of fun in first grade!  We've already tackled snowmen and Eskimos, we are currently covering Martin Luther King… and of course, we can't forget about penguins and polar bears!  I thought I'd stop in and share pictures of the January jumble that we have goin' on, and hopefully give you some ideas in the meantime.

First up, snowmen!  Our cuties are inspired by a project from First Grade Blue Skies.  Jennifer's pack also includes complete snowmen… check it out!

Next, how about some Eskimos?  We learned all about the friendly bunch, and had fun practicing some Eskimo words! :)

And this week we are discussing Martin Luther King, Jr.!  I found this cool MLK, Jr. song on Pinterest, from Welcome to Room 36.  My kiddos love it!  I even caught two cuties singing it as we lined up for dismissal today :)  We will also be working on activities from my i have a dream {craftivity & printables for MLK, Jr.} unit.

Now, how's that for a jumble?!  I hope you were inspired by at least one pic from today's post!   And, I'd love to hear from you!  Happy Wednesday, Cupcakes! :)

I was just wondering what books you used to teach about Eskimos or life in the arctic. I am finding it so difficult to find books that do a good job teaching about "Eskimo Facts".

Eskimos is actually not the correct terminology. It means raw meat eater and can be offensive. The correct word is Inuit people.
