New Year Freebie!

3:00 AM

Hey guys! I am so excited to be part of this amazing group of bloggers and even more excited to bring you some great ideas to use in your classroom! Let me start by telling you a little about myself. My name is Julie and I blog at Big Ideas for Little Hands. This is my 11th year teaching. I taught 6 years in Pre-K and 5 years in Kindergarten in 3 different states! My hubby is in the Army so we do not stay in one place very long. We also have an amazing 13-year old daughter! Now on to the fun stuff!
Can you believe that it's already 2017!!! Last year went by so fast but I am so excited to begin 2017! It will be filled with changes, new adventures, and so much more. I cannot wait. However, now that New Year's has come and gone, that means that Winter Break is over for most of us and it's back to reality time. I'm not sure if I'm ready to put on real clothes and wake up early but I can say that I do miss those 18 smiling faces each day.

Last year, I began using Flippy Flaps in my classroom and my kids have loved them. It is a great fun, interactive way to fit Science and Social Studies into your day. Sometimes I focus so much on Reading, Phonics, and Math that Science and Social Studies get overlooked and pushed to the side.

Flippy Flaps were my answer to how I could easily incorporate these skills into my lessons each week. And let me tell you, the kids are loving them! Take a look at some Flippy Flaps we have already worked on this year!

It is already back to school again. Time to start a new semester and a new year. What better way to start this new year than with a fun interactive way to look at the past, set goals, and learn more about you than with this fun New Year's Flippy Flap! Students will be able to describe their self at the beginning of 2017, reflect on events from last year, and set goals for this year. I created this fun FREE Mini Flippy Flap for you to use your first week break from break a little easier. Click below to grab your FREE Flippy Flap for New Year's!

I hope you had an amazing and relaxing winter break. I hope this helps get you started back with your kids. Here is to an amazing 2017! May it be your best year!
