The Winter Blues

Winter is so hard for me. I dislike the cold...immensely and I dislike the short daylight hours. It is hard for me to get motivated to do anything and then add how incredibly busy I am with work and with my family and I am tired all the time.
So I have been trying to figure out ways to be more energetic and more motivated so that I can beat the winter blues. So I think we are going to start spring early in my classroom!!
Today my class began the process to make newspaper pots. The kids loved shredding newspaper! Tomorrow we will line plastic cups with our wet, moist newspaper and wait for them to dry. Then hopefully at the beginning of next week we can remove them from the molds, add soil and begin to plant. Can't wait to have a classroom full of plants!!! Bring on springtime!


  1. Amen to Springtime! I used to go to a Tanning Salon in the depths of winter, buy a 30 minute session, and just sit next to the tanning bed with my sunglasses on with Jimmy Buffett music playing. There were beach pictures on the walls, so it was like a 30 minute vacation. :) I like your method better.
