Snowflake has been quite the elf, always coming up with some way to entertain us!
She brought Kit an elf outfit to dress up in and it looks like she has aspirations to become a teacher, judging by the chair she brought as well.
She came all dressed up in a cupcake birthday outfit just in time for one little boy's special day. He turned 7 that day!
Somehow I didn't get a photo of the day she brought a reindeer to school!
On Friday, she hid behind this reindeer photo prop! I think she might have thought the reindeer had gotten too much attention the day before!
Snowflake brought all the good little boys and girls in my class a little gift, lip balm, which they are now storing inside of their 'stash' boxes. I am sure that they will need it during the cold month of January.
One last Gingerbread math game for the month!
THANK YOU to all the moms and grandmas who came to help out on Friday's craft day. I think that all the kiddos had a super fun time, making these various crafts to celebrate the season. This craft was creating a paper bag house with some snow painted on.
Many of these ideas are old favourites, but a few were ones that were found on Pinterest. Check them out!
There was icing and candy everywhere as the students checked out their graphs to see how many of each kind of candy they could add to their creations.
Paper bag Santa puppets were a hit,
as were the Santa stars. True story....I still have the one my brother made in primary school and he's now 50 years old!
No time for resting...if the students had time, they did a number search and colour to reveal a picture.
Who knew that a little white paint on your hand could turn an ordinary Christmas ball into a family of snowmen? I hope this one becomes a treasured keepsake.
Bet you remember doing this one as a kid.....trace your foot and two hands, a little glue, some eyes and a pom pom and you have a reindeer!
The students actually clapped when we showed them this doily angel that they were going to make!
Some shiny rhinestones, a triangle and a clothespin and voila! a decorated tree.
A very merry and blessed Christmas to you all. Remember: Jesus is the reason for the season!
