Win my Polar Pals Centers!

Thank you so much to everyone who linked up to our last My Truth Monday! It was really motivating and inspiring to read all of your One Little Words. I've never approached a resolution this way, but so far, I really do like it!

It's hard to believe that winter break is coming to an end already. I can't complain though. I've had a great break and I really do love my kids. I miss them! But I do get a little overwhelmed when I think of the next three months. I've got a ton on my plate both professionally and personally, but it's all good. I can't wait to share it all with you along the way!


Ok, so I haven't created a set of centers in forever, but I felt inspired to make some for January. I based the activities on a few things - CCSS standards, a winter theme, and the skills I know we'll be covering and things that I know my kids can always use extra practice with.  The theme is Polar Pals, meaning animals that live in both the Arctic and Antarctica. I researched a TON about both places and all of the animals that live there, so the pack is full of interesting facts! I really tried hard to make this set fit into your classroom whether you're studying these animals or not. I'm not, but I'm still using these centers because they're seasonal and the skills are exactly what we need.

I tried to some of the centers easy on us, less cutting and corralling small little pieces where I could, like these first three. Just make or project one copy of the activity and give each child an answer sheet.



Here's the breakdown of what's included. It's very important to me that there are clear directions for the kids so that they can review them when they actually get to the center. I also really want an answer key so that the kids can check their own work - great instant feedback for them, less work for me!





I'm really happy with this next activity. Instead of making a bunch of little cards for them to measure, I just added lines to each animal to measure specific parts. So again, just make one copy of the activity and an answer sheet for each kid.







Ok, so here's how to win. I've added lots of options, you can use one or all of them, but each task earns one additional entry. It's a quick little giveaway, ending tomorrow at midnight. Good Luck!

  1. Pick me! Pick me! These look wonderful! Sadly our break may get extended. We may get up to 9 more inches of snow (on top of about 10 inches already) and the wind chill could be -35 or more degrees..... Explain that to your kids when you intro this unit on cold weather animals!

  2. This unit will be perfect for my first two weeks back! My teammates and I were planning on doing a polar animals unit and you came to our rescue! Of course, it feels pretty polar here in CT with below zero temps! Enjoy the warm sun :-) ~ Lisa

  11. Oh gosh! I already signed up for your rafflecopter. I must have done it on my ipad and when I sat at my computer, it didn't look like I had already signed up. I don't want to be a cheater. I really didn't mean to sign up twice, even though I really would love to win this! So sorry!
