I loved this year Christmas celebration in our school. We did Polar Express on our last day before winter break. It was not a lot of work and the kids were superexcited. If you haven’t heard about it I highly recommend you doing a pinterest search for next year.
We decorated the classroom as a train and gave the students jingle bells in the end. It was magical.
We did some crafts too… So many I do not have photos of all of them:
The first one is this cute little elf by First grade Blue Skies:
We used foam instead of paper and it turned out ever cuter. 😉
We also did the snowman buddies we did last year but I totally let them to choose eyes, noses, hats… I love that they turned out so unique.
We did this awesome little craft too. This was pretty easy. Just print the body on light brown paper and decorate with crayons.

This Christmas ball was a hit. We decorated them with the families.
In my school we always ask parents to come and help for a day. The kids love creating a family craft with them. This year we did Christmas balls.
First we gave them the white ornament and asked them to add Mod Podge and colored tissue paper. When they finished they could add
some all the glitter.
The next day we did tags to wrte their names and take them home.
And now that Christmas is over I can’t wait to get ready for the Next year! See you in 2016!
This is our last week before Spring break. We have finished our moon unit. If you have following for a while there are many Space resources
in the blog. The moon foldable
has been updated and now includes this astronaut craftivity and a Neil Armstrong foldable too.
We just used the moon information but this activity can be used in many different ways.
We are also studying money.
I gave the kids lots of ice-cream pieces and asked them to design the best ice-cream ever.
They really did their best.
Once they had glued all the parts I posted the prices on the whiteboard and asked them to calculate the price of the ice-cream and pay me 😉 .
There were some regrets like: My ice-cream is too big. But in the end everyone was able to find the coins needed.
In my school we always staple all the student’s worksheets at the end of each term. This is the cover we used for this term. Click on the picture and grab it:
I projected this examples on the smartboard and asked them to design their own Easter friends.
They were really proud.
I wish I had taken a photo with all of them.
This has been a busy week. We have been preparing for Fallas and St. Patrick. I used this easy printable with my secondgraders before our tests.
I have included English-Spanish and capital letters too. Enjoy!
They love everything crafty!
I also loved our Leprechaun directed drawing. Jennifer is an artist. And this was just perfect for my Art lessons in English.
We needed three 45 minutes lessons to complete them. But the results are worth it!
We draw them with pencils and colored with watercolors. On the last day they traced them with the black markers. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
