January Smartboard Calendar Questions???

I have had several emails about the smartboard calendar. Unfortunately I can't create the calendar for Promethean boards, Notebook won't allow it to be exported to that software. I can export it to Powerpoint, if you use a Promethean board you might be able to export it the Promethean software. You can do this using the Notebook software. I found some information you might find useful on The Whiteboard Blog. Email me at if you would like it in Powerpoint.

January Smartboard Calendar

Here is a newly revised smartboard calendar for the new year.

Five Little Penguins Slipping on the Ice

I spray painted a cookie tin and purchased the little penguin kit from A.C. Moore and attached magnets. They will be a part of my Retelling Center during my Arctic Animal unit.

The Snow Globe Family Freebie

I purchased this book last year and my kinders really loved it! We have a two day week and I was trying to think of something fun to do! So, I decided to create a writing activity for this book. I hope your class will enjoy it as well.
