Sorry I haven't blogged in a little while. I've been wanting to but that's how it goes sometimes. I checked my email today and was so thrilled that Kimberely Moran at
First in Maine passed the Liebster Award on to me!
Thanks, Kimberely. This award brings to light blogs with 200 or fewer followers. I'm excited to pass this on to 5 other deserving up-and-coming bloggers. Here are my picks:
I wanted to add some of my Christmas projects to share with all of you. Every year my kiddos paint Christmas trees. First they paint a green triangle which I let dry for a day. We do that whole class. The next day I bring students to my horseshoe table in small groups to add the trunk, garland, star on top if they want, and ornaments. I took these pics before I cut them out. I love how the kids all paint the same thing but they turn out so different.
Another classroom tradition is to have my students write their own endings to The Gingerbread Man. I read this version
A couple of students wrote about the Gingerbread Man going into space. One went to the moon and brought back a piece of the moon. My students got very creative and I was so proud of their stories when they finished.
I hope all of you are enjoying these last few days. Smiles and hugs to everyone who is on break at the end of the week. I have 6 days to go! Merry Christmas!
