Do you all feel as exhausted as I do? I need this Christmas break more than ever!
We have been working really hard.
I already explained everything about this buntings in the previous post
. But I wanted to give big shout out: IKEA has this great red hangers half price now that Christmas is almost here. I will be buying more as they saved me some time.
I also got more double side wrapping paper. I cannot pass a deal 😉
We also created beautiful Christmas trees. I love this cute idea. Here is the pinspiration: KROKOTAG TREES
The best part is that they can stick it into a flowerpot to decorate.
We were studying arctic animals and I could not pass the opportunity to create this cute penguins. The idea is from For the Love of Art. Thanks!
I am linking with the great Amy Lemons for this part:
We decorated the whole school this year. This is my classroom door.
But my favorite part are this First Grade Blue Skies Elfs. I purchased this craftivity long time ago and it is my favorite so far.
The kids wrote elf stories and the hanged them. They are so proud!
Here is the link to the craft: ELF CRAFTIVITY.
SO WORTH IT!
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.
Visit the store if you like our newest Santa craftivity:
We had lots of fun before Christmas break. I wish I had taken more photos.
We had a Grinch day with cute crafts and some writing. Then we watched the film. Can you believe none of my students had heard about The Grinch? They were super excited with the movie.
Our last craft was a big Santa paper craft! Sorry I don’t have the pattern. But it is pretty simple as you can see.
We have also created these cute snowmen to celebrate winter. I have seen this activity all over pinterest.
Each student has drawn their own pieces for the collage- I love that they all look different.
As soon as we came from Christmas break we celebrated Los Reyes Magos. I have some resources from last year.
Kids brought their new toys. Then we talked about the cabalgata(parade) and their Roscón the Reyes (traditional cake).
They toys have been in the classroom about a week and I can say that they have been sharing them and taking care of them.
Our next goal is writing. We will be doing some writing activities.
