Anyway, so I hate blogging and not having anything to share, so I decided to create something tonight. I showed you a picture of the snowman I want to create a few days ago. The thing I liked most about it is if I create it now, I can hang them up this week and leave them until February. I love creating, but I hate having to change hall displays. If it was allowed, I'd be the classroom that leaves Christmas lights up year around - one, because they twinkle and blink. Plus, they are pretty. Two, who wants to take all the stuff down? My room has enough lights to fill a small city. In all reality, it takes me five minutes to turn them all off every day. I don't like overhead lights, so I have a small artillery of lamps and Christmas lights. Like I said, they sparkle.
Oops!!! I got off topic. I gave a test for half a day today, so I'm a little goofier than usual. So, back on topic. First, we are going to make the snowman from a few days ago. Then, we are going to do a little writing assignment. I am learning very quickly that my students do MUCH better with their writing when it's something interesting or exciting. I figured this would be the perfect project. Below are pictures of the pages I created. If you like it, click HERE to get your How to Build a Snowman freebie.
Now, onto what I know you are waiting for - Disney's adventures. Well, last night apparently Disney decided he wanted to hide out in a stocking on the Christmas tree. It wasn't extremely creative, but remember that comment about having a test today? Exactly! You can't make HUGE messes or be over the top when you need your kiddos to focus. Plus, he had a couple of falls last week and since we can't touch him, most of the time he ends up on the floor for most of the day. I'm learning quickly to make sure he is secure. However, if he falls again, we are definitely going to have him break his arm.
Hope you guys have a great night, enjoy my freebie, and oh yeah, I will definitely have pictures of our crafts tomorrow.
