"What would I do without you" . . . "You make my heart smile everyday"
Aaahhhh.... they make my heart melt!
This is our non-stirring mice "Christmas Visions" bulletin board. They look adorable by the Christmas lights.
As part of the unit, I ask the families to talk to their kiddos about their family traditions. The kids wrote about what they discussed. I loved seeing how excited they were to talk about their own individual family "rituals". Not one child copied another. They all stuck to what their parents had discussed with them. It is really one of my favorite writing pieces.
Not sure what the green squiggle is exactly - but how can you go wrong with tamales!?! Yum!
Today we made Techy Santa.
LOVE this fun twist on a Santa wishlist from Reagan.
I was sad that I couldn't fit them up on my walls anywhere - but the kids weren't.
They were SUPER, SUPER, SUPER excited to take them home. :D Can't blame them. I mean Santa is holding their wish list for Christmas. It is totally understandable that they felt it more important to have that baby in their possession than the classroom wall!
In the light of Friday's horrific tragedy, I'm especially filled with even more joy this year over all of the fun my kiddos have been having lately while sharing, learning and crafting! The Christmas spirit and the love of childhood has been resounding loudly within our classroom walls. It's been fabulous!
Tomorrow night is our Holiday Customs Around the World play. 97 1st graders. 97 parts.
Did I mention I'm exhausted? haha
