It is freezing cold out there and I don't know about you, but I need a lot of motivation and extra coffee to get out of bed every day and go to work! Switching things up each month is fun for me, but it also keeps students engaged and trying new things! Here are my January favorites.

JANUARY CLASSROOM RESOURCES
Winter More & Less Task Cards
These task cards are my absolute favorites because they include levels from concrete to representational to abstract, giving students a solid understanding of the concept. The best part is that you can use them from the introduction of a concept all the way to independent practice.
Winter Counting Task Cards
If you have students working on counting, these task cards are a great way to address IEP goals. Even better, this special education resource includes 4 differentiated levels so you can use it with a variety of students!
Snowflake Pattern Strips & Worksheets
These new pattern strips are perfect for file folders or work tasks! You can even send the worksheets home for homework to reinforce the skill. Check them out!
Winter Holidays Match It!
These Match It! activities are perfect for independent work tasks, work binders, file folder activities, or even cut and paste worksheets.
JANUARY CLASSROOM SUPPLIES
Mini Resin Snowflakes
Looking for a quick and easy task box to create? Throw these cute little snowflakes in a sorting or matching task. For students who are still working at an errorless level, these are great for "put it in" tasks too.
I love this little melting snowman kit! It's a great hands on prop to use with the book, "There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow."
This 12-pack of colorful mittens is perfect for teaching matching! Create a quick and functional work task box with these cute little mittens. Grab the free labels in the resource library.
"There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow"
A classic story with a January twist- yes, please! This book is super fun to add to your January classroom read-alouds.
Ice Crystals Vase Filler
This cute ice vase filler has so many uses in your classroom this January! You can throw these into a sensory bin or use them as math manipulatives. If you have students with counting IEP goals, it's great to switch up your counting objects for generalization and to keep students interested and motivated.
