A Little Christmas Cheer Update...

Yes, I know… I have been a bad blogging friend to you all. Sorry! However, I am going to try to catch you up on a little of December? Yep. It has been that long.

First up… we had a surprise visitor arrive.

I created a little mystery activity for my littles to use their inferencing skills to guess what was in the bag… (thank you abby for the idea)

After I gave my students the four clues and the recorded them on their paper we created wrote our guesses on chart paper… however I forgot to snap that!
*I'll post the printables later in the week*

Finally I introduced my kids to the Elf on the Shelf… we then had a fun time naming our little fella!

Meet Benten...
Next up, our Christmas Around the World Celebration.
After learning about each country and filling out our Christmas Around the World Scrapbook (via Sara Cooley)…
My students created place mats for our partay! YAY
I gave each students a treat from around the world:
Taco - Mexico
Swiss Roll (Yule Log) - France
Candy Cane - United States
Honey Bun - Sweden
Gingerbread - Germany
Cake - France

Happy Holidays from my class to yours!

  1. Love the placemats! I've been trying to find a way to justify having a "celebration" thanks!
