I would like to take a moment and share with everyone some of the themes, topics and resources that I will be using for our children for the month of January. My hope in sharing these ideas is that perhaps it can help someone else find some new resources. Please note that I will not be mentioning every item used however if you see an item that you would like to know where I found it please feel free to contact me and I will do the best that I can to help you locate where I found it.


We really like to celebrate the holidays so January is honestly our family’s time to wind down from all of the excitement. We will start our Groundhog Day countdown toward the end of the month (I love Groundhog Day so keep an eye out for tons of printables I make as the holiday gets closer!)
