christmas in the classroom

It’s Friday!!!! 2 weeks off of school! I have absolutely no plans, but I hope I get to sleep in a few days over the next couple of weeks!

My class made cookies in a jar for our wonderful volunteers. I’ve done this for the last 5 years (after reading about it on Beth Newingham’s website) and just uploaded this FREEBIE kit. It includes everything you need (well, not really!) to put together your own set of cookies in jars. If it’s too late for you to do this, you can still download it for next year 🙂  Of course, do me the grand favor and leave me some TpT feedback love, will ya?


 I was sick all last week, which sort of delayed some things, including our Elf on the Shelf. But, on Monday, a little box arrived (complete with snow on top) from the North Pole. And would you believe it? I didn’t have one naysayer!

After some jets were cooled, we got down to the business of naming our elf. Although I really enjoyed the nomination of “Death Ray,”the class went with plain ‘ol “Sneaky.”

Here is Sneaky and Matthew Cando doing Roll and Write (math fact fluency)…Sneaky wrote doodles and jibberish for his equations and “math stinks” for the date. What.A.Jerk.

Sneaky also had fun on the whiteboard messing with my magnetic mustaches.

And the “ladies man”…

4.  This week was filled with literacy and math centers and a few crafts sprinkled throughout. We made these cute Santa’s!

5.  We had Donuts with Dads (I call it “Dudes” though) in my class and made these craftivities. I love how different they all turn out!
