Happy New Year 2014 with Polar Bears and Pirates

Polar Bear Anchor Charts
  I've spent the winter break making some fun things for the winter months.   We are inside more that usual because of the cold, so I wanted to fix things up.



First, I let the youngest kid, Little D, select the animal we will study upon returning to our school schedule.  Little D selected polar bears, and I selected seasons are our theme for January.

In order to be fair, I allowed my oldest, Big D, to select the blog graphics.  Pirates from the Thistle Girl Designs members' collection won hand down.

Thistle Girl Designs "EZ-Change" have long HTML tables that have to update by hand every time you change them.   This is easy but tedious.  After Christmas,  I stripped out all the HTML tables and converted the entire web page use CSS.   Our website is more children than the public, but you are welcome to check it out at http://www.teachingforfun.com.


After sprucing up the website,  I started on the blog.   My goal for 2014 is learn to create my on blogger CSS and sell them on TpT.    What you see is my new and improved customization.     

I hope you enjoy the new look and the "Polar Poster Packet".  It is on sale until Jan. 6th for $4.    After that time,  it will be $6 for 26 posters and 14 pocket chart labels in two different sizes.     

Don't forget the Polar Bear Racers for some addition and subtraction fun, or P. Bear's Polar Bear Party Unit for New Year time telling games.





Happy New Year
Mrs. D
