...and the kids were going nutty! Luckily mine have been pretty good, so it's OK. I think we are all ready for a nice break before we get into the meat and bones of our curriculum. We have a lot to do when we get back to get ready for second grade, but before that, we will have some fun.
This week, we have been doing more craftivities than real learning, but we are working on fine motor skills and following directions. Here is a look at what we have done this year for Christmas! Enjoy the walk through the classroom!
Our Christmas trees they did at home! I got the pattern from Kristin at A Teeny Tiny Teacher. My kids loved doing them at home. I hope the parents did, too. I love how they are all different.
Our Christmas light names. I saw this on Pinterest and had to do it. 2 others in my grade level copied my idea. Of course one teacher made it seem like it was her own original idea.
GIngerbread people...after our week of Gingerbread stories.
Poinsettias...we talked a little about Christmas in Mexico and made these last week. It's kind of ironic that over half my kids are from Mexico (or their parents are...the kids were all born here) and they had never seen a poinsettia before.
Teacher Bits and Bobs. I did it with my intervention group (I have the highs!) and they loved it. So easy to make! And I am so mad at myself for never thinking of the magic oval or magic circle! What a fabulous way to do it. Check out their blog for more details! I will make sure I do this one every year!
Happy almost Friday!
