Last weeks before Christmas break

Do you all feel as exhausted as I do? I need this Christmas break more than ever!
We have been working really hard. 
This week I kept adding more Santa buntings.

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!

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.

Halloween party!

We have been having fun all week! We started with a scary story on Monday. It is included in my Ordinals pack. It is a ghost story to review ordinals. The kids loved being able to change the little boy faces.

Today we earned a big celebration. 
I told my kids that my grandma was a witch and she left me a brew recipe. I have shared a blank pattern so you can create your own. :)
We filled ours and then we moved on with the brew.
We started our brew! If you are interested in the witch craftivity check out the previous post.
 
To set the table I used IKEA plates, glasses, napkins and confetti. It was quite cheap. With every step we added it to our recipe.
All the ingredients were pretty simple: milk, sugar, yogurt, cocoa, nutella, cream… 
Each kid got a small glass with brew. They loved it!
Don’t forget our GIVEAWAY!!!
