I have to be honest, I’m really hoping that Punxsutawney Phil does not see his shadow this year! I love warm weather and I’m already ready for some sunny days and gardening.
I created this Groundhog Day Unit as a fun way for students to learn some facts about groundhogs and make an enjoyable craft at the same time. I almost squealed with delight the first time I had the groundhog pop in and back out of his burrow with the craft stick.
I absolutely love the quote by Dr. King where he says “…they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Based on this quote this fun craft will help students explore different attributes that make up good character, discussing why it’s important not to judge others on their outside appearance.
Merry Christmas!I just love the Holidays and this time of year.I remember as a kid driving around the town with my parents to see the beautiful christmas decorations and lights.What drew me in, even more than the lights and reindeer displays, were the various nativity scenessprinkled here and there.My thoughts took me back to that night so long ago and I tried to imagine what it must have REALLY been like.
Thanks so much 3AM Teacher for sharing this adorable picture!

What you dwell on is expanded in your experience. Daily pauses for gratefulness have paid dividends in my life! How can you teach thankfulness to your children and students? Continue reading as I share my own experience with harnessing thanksgiving and some fun activities to teach your kids too.
As a child I loved to role play. As we learned about settlers, explorers and Native Americans, after school I would play out these historical events being sure to give my 4 brothers and neighbors roles and duties (of course! I was born to bosslead teach). We traveled the plains, fought with enemies, and sailed the rough seas using cardboard boxes and dirt mounds as our props.
Isn’t it so wonderful at the start of a new school year ?!? New pencils, new notebooks, NEW FLAIR PENS!!!! (WOOT WOOT), new students and new possibilities. I have been LOVING taking my little 3 1/2 year old down the school supply isles at the store, and letting her pick some brand new supplies for our Tot School this year! I get giddy just thinking about it. #teacherskid
