Happy International Polar Bear Day! Since there is both a day and week to celebrate polar bears and raise awareness of their environmental plight, I made a bitroom to read all about these amazing marine mammals. Included are some crafts and songs. I also worked on a bear/hibernation room, too. Click on each image or link to make your own copy to edit.
An interesting holiday to celebrate will always prompt me to find resources for students and teachers! Here is a choice board I enjoyed curating that is elementary in focus. Let’s celebrate 2.22.22! https://bit.ly/bgbstwos You can use FILE, make a COPY to edit your own bitmoji in if you like. I am never going to miss a chance to include the Count.
After the popularity of a coloring mural for the winter holidays, I decided a fresh start for the new year would be a fun thing to try. I depend upon snowflakes and polar bears to kick off the new year with a fun attitude instead of moping over all of the missing Christmas decorations. ( I was referring to my moping, not necessarily the kids’) I had just a small control issues moment when someone colored the bear in multi hues and scribbled a bit. How did I fix it? I added ear muffs and a scarf. And I feel better about the whole thing. I mean pretty much, other than I thought he would be a polar bear a bit longer. We color in the morning just before class or as a break at recess. Many studies are out there supporting a coloring break for kids and adults! Take one soon.
