Better Late...

than never! Sorry I haven't found a time to post about what we did for the holidays in my classroom until now. Here is a quick summary:

We created Christmas Countdown Bells.

For a parent gift, we made 5 Little Snowmen Ornaments. I painted the kids hands with acrylic paint, they grabbed the ornament, we hung it to dry, and then I decorated them. Pretty cute, huh?

My favorite is the reindeer that the kindergarten team at my school does every year. We give the kids a tracer for the antlers and face, and the rest is up to them. To create the face, we give them a circle tracer with a slit in it. They cut down the slit and overlap the paper to create the cone-shaped face. Later, we created a Santa as a class to complete our hallway display.

I hope you enjoy the last few days of our break!

Hey Mrs. Patton, I've missed seeing you around! It's been hard for me to get on the blogs a lot this year. I loved seeing these photos :)
