T- 2.5 days
That is right everyone, the countdown is on in my household. CHRISTMAS BREAK is coming in 2.5 school days. So that means 2.5 days till the kids belong to their parents for 10 days solid and I am elated! With both the husband and I being teachers, Christmas break is a time we can both look forward to.
Oh goodness have my kids been chatty. I am trying my hardest to be patient and make cute activities mixed in between the end of the semester tests that are thrown their way. I don’t know if the teacher’s patience is short or if the kiddos are really that crazy. It may be a toss up. It is everywhere. I think we all just need a week away from each other so we have a chance to miss each other. Yah, that’s it…. or something. I don’t know.
The FUN we have been up to…
Thumb-print Christmas Lights
This is the cutest little craft EVER. All it takes is: a sharpie, white piece of paper, paint, and fingers. Talk about a winning art project in my classroom! I have as much art talent as Monet had in his little pinky joint- just the end of it…. basically none. This project is perfect!
How to make the Grinch grin writing project
This project was supposed to be fun but I am a little OCD about their writing so it has turned into quite the project. Poor kids. It was a boat load of fun to brainstorm and get our ideas on paper- then, crazy Mrs. H had to turn it into 3 point paragraphs complete with all the other jazz that goes into proper writing. At the end of the day, I’m hoping they can be a cute keepsake if the parents want.
Melted Snowmen cookies
Last but not least, we will be making these melted snowmen on the last day of school for their Christmas party– since their teacher has to throw it. No parents can get off of work. Yay for being strapped for cash and having to throw a Christmas party for a room full of 3rd graders. We will have a TON of FUN. Mark my words. We will have a TON OF FUN!
