Well, winter weather has finally arrived in New Jersey! It's 14 degrees, there's a dusting of snow on the ground, and low temps should be here all week. Although winter isn't my favorite season, I have to say that it seems a lot more normal than the 58 degree day we had last week! Maybe the freezing temperatures will knock out some of the crazy germs that are going around. (Is that true? Do low temperatures actually kill germs? What's the science on that? I read on Yahoo tonight that we won't get sick by going out in the cold with wet hair, so I'm just not so sure about anything anymore!)
Icy weather leads to thinking about ... penguins! Here's a fun little penguin freebie for you! It addresses CCCS 1.NBT.1 (counting on the 120 chart) and 1.NBT.5 (mentally add 10). Enjoy!
