What February looks like in my classroom!

Okay... I am well aware that it is January 31st. Happy (almost) February! Are you excited about this month? I tend to really dislike February... it's too cold, dreary, and not too exciting. Sure, there is Valentine's Day, but that's about it! One word to describe how I feel about February: blah.

Something I do like about February is the units and subjects that I teach. I LOVE teaching geometry to the kids. They quickly understand it, and it's easy to incorporate hands-on activities. Measurement can be difficult for the kids, but there's also a lot of leeway for hands-on activities. However, teaching soil? UGH. I get so much mud and dirt in my classroom for the activities that we do!! I am a neat freak, so this is not fun for me.... but fun for the kids :-)

Here is what February in my classroom is going to look like:

Math: Measurement, geometry 
Language Arts: Writing process, literature circle, folk tales, word study, vocabulary notebooks
Social studies: Ancient China, Presidents' Day
Science: Soil


Some of my products that I will be using:
Figure Frenzy! (math center game)


What does February look like in your classroom? Do you have any units that you greatly like or dislike that you will get to use?
