5 Classroom Activities to Help Ring in the New Year

The new year is a great time to have students reflect on the past and plan for the future.

Cursive Art for Other Holidays

You can have your students use vocabulary words, spelling words, holiday spelling lists, math facts, fact families, and more! Whatever your class is working on!

6 Awesome Veterans Day Activities

Veterans Day in on November 11th. This is an important holiday in my patriotic family. My dad served in the National Guard and my brother-in-law is currently serving in the Army. I have seen the personal sacrifice that they have made. I have seen the sacrifices that my mom made and my sister currently makes. I think this day is crucial for our students to know and remember. Because of this, I have scoured the internet to find some important, easy, and fun activities to do on this day. 1. Flag and Thank You Banner: I really like the flags mixed...
