Ho, Ho, Ho...It's Almost Christmas!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!  

The students practiced their number words, they pulled a number card from the Santa hat and used the dotter to mark in on the Santa beard.

 They enjoyed writing with the prompt, "If Santa Claus got stuck in my chimney I would...".  They made this very cute craft with their writing sample.  Watch the video to hear their responses! 

 We ate Christmas dinner in the cafeteria on Thursday, dressed in Rudolph hats of course!

 We had a fun reindeer theme throughout the week.  These cute reindeer scenes are cute additions to our class.

 Reindeer handprint ornaments

 More reindeer, handprints for antlers.

 Everyone wrote Christmas wishes on this cute Reindeer stationary.

 We even made reindeer food.  Everyone put a little Christmas magic in their food.  Sprinkle this in your yard Christmas Eve night and the reindeer will have a tasty treat when they stop by your house!

 We put the reindeer food in these reindeer bags.

Everyone's favorite activity was making gingerbread houses.  The students worked in groups to make these yummy holiday treat. 

 We even had an extra special house sent to us from the North Pole!!  Mrs. Claus and the elves made our class a beautiful gingerbread house!!

 Everyone did a wonderful job on these keepsake ornaments.

 This week we learned the letter D.  Jacob brought donuts for snack!

 More D Show and Tell - Dirt bike, photos from Rocket City DINER, and a book about Dinosaurs.

 Student of the Week: Joseph
