Santa is everywhere!

We are getting our classroom ready for the holidays. This was Santa’s week. The kids loved this directed drawing I found on pinterest:
It was super easy following the steps.

Then we cut all the drawings and glue them onto doublesided wrapping paper.

  
The kids did and amazing job!

There are many different crafts on krokotak.com

We will try more next week.

Bye bye Fall

We have been working on Proper Nouns and Common nouns. If you have been following for a while you know that I would not miss the opportunity to create a craft. So we created these Fall trees and I asked the kids to classify the nouns (Proper Nouns on the left/Common Nouns on the right). We also added the definition in the little boxes.
Get the pattern here (English & Spanish). I added some blank leaves to write their own nouns.
On the other hand I finished my Fall crafts with the first grade classrooms. I love being the Art Teacher! We created cute Fall leaves in a very short session. 
First we glued a leave in the middle of a yellow paper. Then added some colorful strips of paper as borders. 
The kids added the eyes made of punched circles and drew the arms and legs. It worked great and they were really proud of them! :)

I did not invented this craft myself I just used a cheap version of this one leaf people from Mess for Less.

5 for Friday

We finally celebrated our first birthday! The kids loved getting their birthday pen. I created a small tag. Click on the picture to get it. The birthday candles are from Cara Taylor. And they are free!

 

We had fun creating silly pumpkins.
I had seen it in Doodle Bugs Teaching and I saved it for Friday.

 

 

We finished our bat unit. They kids love this unit year after year. We created an anchor chart with all the information researched.
Then we copied the information on bat patterns and I added a very long straw to make them fly!

 

 

We also studied the parts of the bat. If you are interested in this unit check out the TPT store.

 

 

I finally found what I was looking for… I have been debating about buying some Ikea furniture for the classroom. So when I found this deal I bought it!
