Now, I am one of those teachers who is still stuck in school this week. I want to scream at the top of my lungs because this first half of the year has been very difficult on me! Toughest group I have ever had.
My students decorated tiles for their parents this year. We also made a few Christmas Tree decorations. So, today we took the time and made these cute reindeer bags to take the presents home in. The kids loved this. We also made a calendar for 2012 for their parents. The kids decorated every page inside of the calendar.
Today we also had Grinch Day in our class. We all wore green, worked on the Grinch Unit by Mrs. Jump. We compared the book to the movie, we drank Grinch Punch, and at the end of the day, the Grinch had came by while the kids were out of the class and left them a note with a green candy cane. We had a great day doing things we normally don't do.
There are a few "Grinch" items we need to finish in the morning and then we are moving on to begin our short Polar Express Unit. We also have our class party tomorrow afternoon. We have a nutrition guideline that we are suppose to go by, but I couldn't help making some things that I found on Pinterst. I will post pictures tomorrow. Then on Thursday we will have PJ Day and watch the Polar Express.
Please wake me when its all over! I'm ready for a break!
