The Grinch didn't steal OUR Christmas!

Thank you to the mommy of this little cutie who sent in the perfect treat for the last day of school.  We all really appreciated that it met the criteria of our 'Apple' School philosophy and it looked like the Grinch in his 'Santy Claus' hat, too!
Older is better, in my humble opinion.  The students loved seeing the 1966 television version of the story that has driven our learning this week. (Yes, they are in their pyjamas!)
Another thank you  to elementaryartroom for the post that we used as inspiration for our Who Village scene, done on watercolour paper, with sharpies and felt pens.
After drawing with pencil, the whole scene was outlined with a black Sharpie pen... it looked like this....
before colour was added, and finally the peeking Grinch took a little look into the scene.
The students were rightly proud of their final product.
Until we meet again in the New Year, I'll leave the final words to Dr. Seuss.....
“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!”
― Dr. SeussHow the Grinch Stole Christmas!
