New Year, New Ideas, New Possibilities Linky Party

I am so excited to be linking up with Primary Possibilities today for a Blog Hop! I would like to introduce you to a very talented blogger, Julie Shope, who we are so lucky to have here sharing with you today.

I am so excited to be a guest blogger with Tammy here at the The Resourceful Apple! I am a kindergarten teacher in sunny South Florida. This past summer I started my blog Ms. Shope’s Class, and I’m still getting the hang of it! I have enjoyed learning, sharing ideas and getting connected with others! I I am thrilled to be part of this blog hopthis is my very first!

I can hardly believe that my Winter Holiday is over and I will be heading back to school on Monday! That break seemed to zoom on by! My to-do list is longer than when the break began! Oh manthat was not part of the plan!

I am a native Northern girl and now living in Florida I miss the snowwell I miss the thought of it! Heading back to school I look forward to teaching about the season of Winter and creating a Winter Wonderland in our classroom! Some of my favorite Winter Wonderland activities are

I know Penguins and Polar Bears aren’t necessarily “Winter” but they are just so funthey have to be part!!

Click here to find these activities in my TPT store.

I can’t wait to see all of the fun Winter ideas that ya’ all are working on!!!
A BIG thank you again to Tammy for sharing her lovely blog with me! Make sure to stop on over and check out my blog! Happy Blog Hoppin’! Happy 2013!
