I have completely neglected the blog. Life happens…
I had a daughter 11 months ago. We are beyond happy and super tired, so creating new stuff and posting on the blog was not a priority. In fact I have started this post so many times I had to edit the age of the baby twice. 😉
After a whole year at home with the baby I feel (almost) ready to go back to school.
Before leaving the class I packed most of my personal stuff into 6 big boxes and took them home. I still left a ton of personal stuff because I was feeling tired (pregnant). I wish I didn’t take so much home, because I ended having a wonderful sub, and everything was in perfect conditions.
I loved being a teacher again. I have an awesome group this year. I loved decorating the classroom and organizing everything. And I am enjoying read aloud time more than ever. During these months I have bought many books and I can’t wait to show them to my students.
After a whole month teaching half-day I love my new situation. I have my day in the classroom but I go back early enough to enjoy the afternoons as a mom. I don’t know how this is going to work with TpT but as you can see she is already helping. 😉
Don’t forget to grab this awesome freebie.
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.
You can get a free pattern here:
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!
It is a little late to post about Halloween. I still have more posts about Xmas and winter coming soon.
I got married in October and I totally neglected the blog for two months.
First let me show you the wedding stuff:
I do not have the photos yet, this is an instagram pic. It was a lovely day with friends and family. Then we went for the Honey Moon to Australia!!! We had lots of fun. Australia had been in my list for a very long time. We also had some time to visit some Australian friends. We attended a TPT meet up and finally met Melanie From the Pond.
Back to work again. It was hard but it really helps that I love my job and my school. And I had bought little gifts for the kiddos that I was excited to give them. 😉
It was time for Halloween stuff. When you have little or none time to prepare Halloween you have pinterest. I did this awesome craft with the kiddos. We used it last year too. Thanks to my coworker who sent me this photo because I forgot taking a photo of my classroom.
We used the Monster craft to review our number lines. I found the idea on Teacher Bits and Bobs.
We also did the classical bat hats. Nothing special, but the kids love using white crayons on black paper.
So this was all we did in Halloween , or at list what I can remember looking through my phone photos. Coming soon with some Christmas fun.
