Weekly Favorites for February 6, 2011

This is the longest favorites list I’ve ever done. I have over 20 items here and could’ve put a few more. It’ll take me forever to make the comments and hopefully I’ll get them all done today. There were a lot of great ideas on the blogs this week. I wanted to include a lot of the Valentines ones since it’s coming up fast and if anyone has missed some of them and wants to use them in their lesson plans, they still have time to do that. There are some great science experiments, math activities and there is still time to do some of those winter themed activities. There is still a ton of snow on the ground here and a lot of other places and from what I hear; there is more on the way. Even though there aren’t any Chinese New Year activities listed, I hadn’t forgotten about it. I didn’t bother to add any of those activities this time since it’s already passed. I know it inspires a lot of activities; crafts especially. I hope you enjoy the list.
