February Teaching Resources

It sounds as if the groundhog saw his shadow, so that means six more weeks of winter!  Here in southwest Missouri, we haven’t seen much of a winter yet.  Last year we missed a total of 21 days due to snow.  This year we have missed a total of one day!  I do believe we have the craziest weather.  I just want a little bit of snow!

Since it’s February, I have a handful of February Teaching Resources that I want to share with you.  So, here we go!
