Its the most wonderful time of the year!

Friday, December 21, 2012

This week has been full of exciting activities and today was a showstopper! Thanks to the wonderful parent support, we had six rotating Christmas stations:

1) Edible Christmas trees (waffle cones with green icing and M&M's for ornaments)
2) Gingerbread houses (milk cartons with graham crackers)
3) Pete the Cat Saves Christmas read aloud & glyph
4) A Charlie Brown Christmas (iPod touch app & AR test)
5) Grinch measurement and glitter ornament (the kids measured the height, length, and width of 3 gifts to make sure they could fit in the grinch's sack!)
6) Santa's Stuck! Writing activity and craft

After the rotations, I opened my sweet gifts from the kids. Wow! You guys sure know how to spoil a teacher!

The kids finally reached their goal of 18 brownie points. They chose to have a pizza party. Thanks Mrs. Pylant for picking up the Papa John's!

After lunch, we did a boy/girl gift exchange. They sat in two separate circles and I read this story aloud - Each time I said "right" they passed the gift to the right, etc.

Once gift time was over, we packed up our stockings with all the goodies from our classmates and grabbed our blankets and pillows and headed to the cafeteria.

We joined all our 2nd grade classmates for the movie "Santa Paws."

What a day! I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Christmas break!
