Making links for our Christmas Countdown - you can grab that here! I used the Santa because he was adorable :)
Making Santa! This is my favorite Santa craftivity! :)
Our Japanese fans. The kids got to use glue which was beyond exciting and then I put whatever color glitter they wanted on their fans. The floor was super sparkly!
Only 3 1/2 days stand between us and a relaxing Christmas Break! We are going to enjoy the Polar Express this week, a Christmas Party, Open our Christmas presents and finish up our Christmas Around the World unit. I am super excited about our party on Tuesday - we are going to be decorating Gingerbread Houses in groups! I can't wait to see how they turn out and promise to post pictures quickly! Wednesday we are doing rotations and in my room we are making bell necklaces for the Polar Express. I love this time of year with my babies.
I am sure at this point you have heard about the horrible shootings in CT. I want to take a second to say that selfishly as a teacher, I can not imagine this horrible tragedy happening to my students. I love my kids so much and this is my favorite time of year with them. They have been ecstatic making all of our crafts these past few weeks and I can not imagine missing that time with them. Reading about the heroic teachers absolutely amazes me and I know that if put in the same situation I would protect my 20 sweet kinders as my own. I am thankful that 20 sets of parents allow me to spend 7.5 hours with their children every day because I learn as much from them as they do from me. I am praying for the families that have lost someone and for the families of the other children that they can go to school and not be scared of what can happen.
