Christmas Crafts

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here.  We got into the spirit today by making some Christmas cards.  I love my Cricut.  We used it to make some reindeer heads and Christmas trees.  The pieces were easy for the children to glue on cardstock.  I think the googly eyes were a nice touch.

 The Christmas trees we decorated with coloured circle stickers.

 We added stars and trunks before gluing them on cardstock.

Head on over to TBA for more Christmas Crafts.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.  I hope you have a safe and happy holiday.  We are gearing up for a huge bake sale today.  We are hoping to take the children to see a Disney Production in January (shhhhh don't tell them.  They don't know yet) and the tickets are $30 each.  We thought a bake sale would be a perfect way to raise some money to offset the costs.  We spent yesterday baking up a storm.

 We also decided to make these little hot chocolate packets.  We added marshmallows to the outside and will also attach a candy cane to the front.
 Here's the back.  I hope you can read it.
 We also made some cookies in a jar.  They were super easy for the kids to make.  I think I might make them for my own kids teachers.

I'm Thankful for.....

 What the Teacher Wants and Oh'Boy 4th Grade are holding linky parties on what you are thankful for. Head on over to join in the fun. Here are my answers.

1. What are you thankful for in your classroom?

I have to say my new IPad!  It just arrived on Friday and I am beyond excited.  I go to a workshop tomorrow for tips and tricks.  Can anyone recommend any great apps for kindergarten and/or special ed?  I would love to hear them.
2. What person are you most thankful for?

I would have to say my children and husband.  We lost a child last week that was with us last year at school and it makes you realize just how precious your own family is.

3. What 3 blogs are you most thankful for?

I would have to say Deanna Jump's blog (she's the reason I started blogging), Growing Kinders and Kindergarten Crayons.

4. What guilty pleasure are you most thankful for?

I would have to say reading.  I have read some awesome books lately:  The Hunger Games Series (can't wait for the movie) and the Junie B Jones Books (with my son).

5. What are you most thankful for?

I am thankful for everyone who reads this blog.  When I first started, I wasn't sure I would have anything worth writing and I wasn't sure anyone would read it.  So I'm very thankful that you stopped by today.

What do you do with a left over pumpkin?  Why you try and grow more pumpkins of course!  I saw this on Pinterest and then Fran at Kindergarten Crayons posted about it this week.  I had any extra pumpkin left over from Halloween and so I thought, why not?  Let's give it a try.

 So we cut our pumpkin in half.
We examined the inside.
 Added some dirt.

And some water.

 We labeled one half "big pumpkin" and the other half "little pumpkin".
 The children then drew the pumpkins and labelled their work. 

We are going to check in on them every day and see what happens.

Least We Forgot

Remembrance Day is a hard concept for our children.  We started early in the week decorating our poppies.  The students did what they were able to do.  Some used Bingo dabbers.

 Some used tissue paper on the end of a pencil.

 Some used the paint brush pens we have.  It dries quickly and is easy for them to hold on to.

 I think they turned out well.
 This is the little poem that we are going to say with the children during our ceremony.  We talk about peace and friendship and how we can make the world a better place.
