Hey teacher friends! I hope everyone is staying warm with this freezing arctic air that is descending upon much of the US! I just pulled up our local weather and this is what is currently states it is outside right now:
Yes, you read that right. It is a whopping -7 degrees Fahrenheit outside, with a windchill reading of -33. Super bone-chilling. Brrrrrrr. And it is slated to get even colder throughout the next day or so, before it finally “warms” up to temps above 0 on Wednesday.
Needless to say, our local schools have not gone back today or tomorrow – and have been off since the Winter Break! I like a good snow day as much as anyone else, but I think I am ready for my kids and I to get back into a routine. Anyone else also feeling the same yet?

Since I was shut-in from the cold, I thought maybe I would whip up a new freebie for you all and share the warmth that way. 🙂
In honor of the snow, I created a Similar Snowflakes Grouping Freebie! It is a simple idea: print, cut, and laminate the different snowflakes for as many different groups as you would like. Then, randomly – or not so randomly – pass out the cards to the students. And then give the students a few minutes to group up into pairs/small groups by matching their snowflakes!
Easy peasy and fun for winter – even if you live in Florida!
Have fun grouping up and stay safe out there everyone no matter where you reside!
