It's almost here ....the break! Ahhh.... that's the sigh of relief that I'm anticipating! :)
Seriously, this week has been a whirlwind. Full of emotions, LOTS of hugs, some crazy excitement, and fun filled days of crafts, books, and sharing. Even though my kids are completely nutball right now, I love them more than they will ever know, and I absolutely adore this time of year with them. The excitement, the bright eyes, and the innocence...
If I could just bottle up that innocence, or find a way for these sweet babies to keep it as long as possible....That would be my Christmas wish.
So in the spirit of sharing, I wanted to show you all the fun things we've done this week. Last time I posted, I showed you our super cute reindeer...
Of course, we made reindeer food...
One child asked, "If they're magic, why are they in the bucket labeled "glitter"? (uh oh!)
But another kid came to the rescue... " She has to hide them there because they LOOK like glitter, and that way no one can find OUR magic crystals!" Love it.
So, then, we compared and contrasted fiction and nonfiction text about reindeer using our Reindeer Fact Books!
I'll admit, this week is NOT the most instructional, but I do love this activity.
We also made Rudolph! Rudolph! Rhyming Books (no picture, sorry!), and I wanted to give it to you as a FREEBIE!!! You can grab it in my TpT store <HERE>. I know it's a little late in the season, but it's a fun activity, a great review of rhyming words, and you can even save it for next year! :)
Okay, so then we moved to snowflakes - more ornaments!
The kids were so pumped about the glittery snowflakes - and I loved them, too. A friend of mine is going to do them in January for her winter unit in Kindergarten & I thought that was a great idea, too. Just wanted to share :)
Anyway, that's it so far. Tomorrow, we will make our snowman ornaments & I am super excited. On top of that, my class won the Behavior Movie Party for 1st grade ( GO us !!!) so I get 2 hours of planning. Ahhh...there's that sound of relief again :)
Here's a preview of our snowman ornaments...thank you Pinterest!!!
Okay, so that's about it for me tonight..time for bed & a LONG day tomorrow. We have PTA...yes, PTA, the night before the last day of school. Nighty night!!! Have a great rest of the week :)
