Polar Bear craftivity

I shared a little craft a couple of days ago on Instagram and some of you contacted me to get the pattern. So, better late than never. Get your pattern and enjoy the craft!

I recognize this is not the cutest craft I have ever made (check out the blog/store for better examples). But it is quick and cheap because you do not need colored paper and you won’t spend a lot of your time coloring.

For the scarves I used cute colored paper I bought from Target a couple of years ago.

If you want to create a the big letters just use big fonts on power point and have lots of patience to cut them out.

I am back. Again…

I have completely neglected the blog. Life happens…

I had a daughter 11 months ago. We are beyond happy and super tired, so creating new stuff and posting on the blog  was not a priority. In fact I have started this post so many times I had to edit the age of the baby twice. 😉

After a whole year at home with the baby I feel (almost) ready to go back to school.

Before leaving the class I packed most of my personal stuff into 6 big boxes and took them home. I still left a ton of personal stuff because I was feeling tired (pregnant). I wish I didn’t take so much home, because I ended having a wonderful sub, and everything was in perfect conditions.

I loved being a teacher again. I have an awesome group this year. I loved decorating the classroom and organizing everything. And I am enjoying read aloud time more than ever. During these months I have bought many books and I can’t wait to show them to my students.


After a whole month teaching half-day I love my new situation. I have my day in the classroom but I go back early enough to enjoy the afternoons as a mom. I don’t know how this is going to work with TpT but as you can see she is already helping. 😉


Don’t forget to grab this awesome freebie.

Ya llegan los Reyes Magos

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am joining Iteachbilinguals linky party!

If you are in Spain you are still on Holiday. If you are a dual language teacher in the U.S. You will be back to school soon. So I think that this is a good freebie for you:

Reyes magos

It is a Wise Men simple craftivity that you can use to write a letter to the Reyes Magos. It could be a Thank You letter if you go back to school on the 7th or you could just write a poem. That is what we did.



The printable file includes head and hands on one page, 2 beards for two students on the next page, 2 crowns for to students on the third page and the writing paper. If you want to create your own writing paper, the FREE border is from Kinda Art.

I highly recommend printing the face/hands page on colored paper to avoid extra coloring.

To do the crowns we first drew the top part, you can see each student has a different design on top. I asked them to make a few ‘big mountains’ instead or lots of tiny ones for easy cutting. Then we decorated with stickers.

Have fun and enjoy the linky!
