December in the class
Hello friends.....One of my new years "goals" is to keep up with this blog better than this year. I think I need to schedule it into my weekly things to do :)
Below are some fun things we did.
December was a stressful month for me, with staff changing, assessments, meetings, and getting everything done that needs to be done before break AHHHHHHH. I am happy to be on Winter Break and being able to regroup and reflect and come up with a new action plan!!!!
These pictures I found on pinterets printed and laminated. The students used play dough to make ornaments, Santa's beard, antlers, etc. I believe there are 5 different mats and the kiddos love them.
Parent Christmas gifts!
They came out super duper cute.....
I am always looking for new ways to work on one to one correspondence when it comes to counting. Counting bears, blocks, and things like that can get old. The kids loved counting the ornaments.
Below in the blue is a Santa hand print that became an ornament and the card for the Christmas Tree pot holder. The book is a reindeer hand print.
Santa door and Christmas tree door.
The students LOVED the doors. Not sure if I want to keep doing them, they take so long, but they are so worth it, ha I guess there is my answer :)
This is the new way I have been using paint in the class, it reminds me when I paint at home. Keeps everything a little bit cleaner.
Size Christmas tree. Another way to present big, medium, and small. Two day activity.
The first day the students cut the triangles and we talked about sizes.
the second day they glued everything together.
2014-2015 Classroom keeps sake. I LOVE it. It looks so awesome.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!!
