I'm excited to share with you our second month of Pinterest Pick 3! My amazingly talented friend Lisa from PAWStively Teaching and I would love for you to link up and share your top three Pinterest finds for your classroom in January!
There are so many fun winter-themed ideas floating around Pinterest! Here are my top three for January!
I absolutely adore this book, and plan to have some snow globe fun with art and writing this month!

It has the best storyline, and lots of rich figurative language that can lead to great discussions with the students. It's a perfect mentor text. My students will be completing art and writing projects to go along with the Snow Globe Family. I like the idea of using their photograph inside the snow globe and having them write from that perspective. They would make an adorable bulletin board too! Thematic teaching at its finest!
Every year I teach the students how to make self portraits with oil pastels. I give them a small picture of themselves and do a guided drawing, similar to THIS lesson. It would be fun to leave these portraits up all year and have the students dress themselves up for the different seasons! I loved this one with the hat and mittens!My third Pinterest find is a fun one the kiddos will love! When it involves food or drink, they will do just about anything!

There are so many writing opportunities to go along with this art project. Students can describe their hot chocolate experience or write an informative piece on how to make hot chocolate. It would be fun to have them write each and compare and contrast the characteristics of each!Be sure to follow me here on Pinterest for more ideas! There is so much inspiration in Pinterest! It was really difficult narrowing it down to just three!
