## Can you believe February is upon us?

Groundhog Day is the second. Will that groundhog see his shadow? Well, here's a groundhog that can predict the weather!

Here's a Groundhog Day Consonant -le word work activity to practice the Consonant-l-e ending in words! Just click the image!

Here's some more groundhog fun... to practice prefixes and suffixes. Just see the image! Don't let the Groundhog See his Shadow!

And some Groundhog math fun, with a little "Super Football" math fun as well. Groundhog Day and Super Football Math Problems

Have you had Day 100? Ours will be this Wednesday. Here's a great Day 100 book!

This is a game that challenges my second graders, and they love it! Mental Math 100: Adding and Subtracting Hundreds

This is a great activity if you're going to be out: easy directions, and the kiddos LOVE it! And it's great for developing their number sense.  Here's another Day 100 activity for "older" kiddos to practice sets of 100 Count to 1,000 Booklet.

And a Day 100 Dollar Deal for active kids...just see the image! Beanie Toss to 100

Guess what else is coming soon... Mardi Gras! These worksheets, games, and activities will keep them busy AND learning! Mardi Gras No Prep Activities: Literacy and Math

Valentine's Day is the same week! Here's my VERY favorite book to read for Valentine's Day! This one will warm your heart, and the kids' hearts as well!

And a Valentine's Day Dollar Deal! Two Valentine's Day Mini-Books

Here are a few fun books for Presidents Day!

Here are plenty of activities for the kids with an American President theme! President's Day Games and Activities

Want to make life a whole lot easier and grab a big bargain?  Here's a bundle with several different activities!

## I really like to find ways to celebrate all those special days, but it's not easy to squeeze everything in.

Mardi Gras is just about fun, and it's at a time of the year when the children really need something to lift their spirits, so I find a way to squeeze it in... by having the Mardi Gras theme overlap what I need to teach anyway!  Like Math!

Well, for one, I thought I'd squeeze a little Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day into math time with these math problems:

Here's another fun way to "squeeze in" Mardi Gras without losing time developing important skills: Mardi Gras No Prep Printables! These practice important skills, but have a Mardi Gras theme. These are great if you are going to be out for the day or are so busy you don't have time to plan!

But first, I'll read them a book on Mardi Gras and let them make some masks on Monday. (That way, the math problems will make a whole lot more sense on Tuesday!)
