Christmas and getting ready for winter

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.

I bought 

Christmas Print and Play Number Worksheets from Melanie (From the Pond). My students loved the spinner games! It is one of my favorite purchases from TPT.

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. 
You’ll find this snowman writing in my TPT store: How to make a snowman craftivity

Halloween writing and the triplets!

Today we finished our Halloween writing craftivity. It was a big hit! My students love having different options in their assignments. They were able to choose one of the characters in this writing craftivity.

First, I wrote two word lists. One of funny adjectives and the other one with scary adjectives. They choose a hat and pick out a paper.
There were lots of screams and laughts.. :)

Then they had their story titles.
         ‘The smelly mummy’ or ‘The horrible witch’

We reviewed the parts of a story anchor chart…

And they wrote great stories!

My kids are very excited with our ‘Halloween activities’ and I have tried doing something during our computer time. But it is very difficult finding online games for Halloween in Spanish so I ended using English games from ABCYA.com  But if you really need something for preK-1st graders you can visit this site:
It’s about three little girls (tripplets) that travel through different tales and they always find the Boring Witch., wich is very funny. The site is in English too. If you like them you can watch some episodes on CLAN TV.

Halloween sale and Halloween writing

 Are you having a good weekend? I am here working on my next week school plans and I just decided to join and have a TPT sale. I have lots of Halloween resources in my store. It will be on sale until tomorrow Sunday.

This week has been super fun in my classroom. And the kids have been really calm taking into account that the Fun Fair just arrived to our town and are getting ready for our Scary Week.We have been working on bats, learning about our body and getting our scary stories ready. I haven’t been able to take many photos but I promise I will show you my Halloween Writing Craftivity on Monday!This is the only photograph I managed to take without kids. It shows our work about the skeleton bones and  a writing Anchor Chart. We are learning how to write stories.

Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget checking my TPT store for some Halloween printables!
