This quick, easy and fun "color me" Christmas card is a sanity saver for that least week of school before holiday break.
I found this idea in various print forms on a variety of sites, so I'm not sure where the original idea came from. However, instead of making an 8x10 print to frame, I thought it would be perfect to design some cards, bookmarks and magnets, which children could make in school for various holidays: Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, or Grandparent's Day.
These 100 Day puzzles are a quick, easy and fun way to help students count and sequence numbers 1-10, count backwards from 10 to 1, as well as skip count by 10s to 100.
Here's a quick, easy and fun 100 Day "print & go" activity that your kiddos are sure to enjoy. Children can do this independently during your 100 Day celebration, or as a whole group, read the simple sentences, students then take a moment to complete the task. You can also send this home a few days prior, to be completed and then returned on 100 Day.

If you're looking for something different for a Martin Luther King Day activity, this is it. The "mpatapo" (em-pa-ta-poe) symbol means "knot of pacification/reconciliation". It is a symbol of peacemaking. Mpatapo is an African symbol known as adinkra, from the Asante tribe of Ghana. I thought it was an appropriate representation of what Dr. King tried to do with his peaceful marches, sit-ins and speeches, as he sought nonviolent solutions for abolishing discrimination; so I featured it on this quick, easy and fun MLK Day craftivity.
