Merry Christmas all! I am so loving my first day of Christmas break! I survived the last week of school and can say that my Christmas party with my second grade babes yesterday was awesome! My room mom did a FABULOUS job of organizing everything and the kids had a ball! I have some pics here of my parent gifts that we made this year. I can't take credit for them...one of my second grade buddies was making this with her class and I just fell in love with them and had to make them. Check out our Santa pots!
smaller pots (2 per child)
red and tan acrylic paint
tiny pink balls for the nose
white foam sheet to cut out eyebrows and mustache
fluffy boa for cutting beard strips
tacky glue and hot glue gun
mints to fill the pots
They really were fun to make! I wish you could have seen my classroom once we cut into those feather boas! We had feathers flying EVERYWHERE! The kids loved it!
I want to wish everyone a holiday filled with joy in your hearts! Have a very Merry Christmas! I will love my time off with my family but want to share a sample of a packet I hope to finish before the first of the year! I am planning to make themed based (by the month) Common Core Daily Practice packets each month. I am almost finished with my January packet that will include math and language arts practice sheets. Watch for this soon and here is a sample page for you use with your students.
Again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!-Yvonne
