December Catch Up Post

Here is a little catch up post about what we were up to in room 04 this past month. 

We had an elf visiting our classroom. The class decided on the name Jingle. Here are a few pics of Jingle in action.

Having a classroom elf didn't go as smoothly this year as it did last year. Some of my after school students touched Mr. Jingle! Sadsville!!! He may not make another appearance next year. :(

Here is our little classroom Christmas tree.

We made these hand print reindeer ornaments as one of our parent gifts. I've made these the past few years and it has become my favorite. Simple, but oh so cute!!

We also made these Cupcake inspired snowman ornaments as one of our parent gifts. They turned out cute. 

We made a Santa from my Holly Jolly Fun pack and students wrote "If I were Santa..."

We had our first snow day in December! I love spending snow days with this cutie!!

We had our annual Polar Express day with Kindergarten. Each room hosted a different activity. My room was games again this year. We played pin the nose on the reindeer and did a snowman relay.

Pure cuteness!!

I can't for the life of me to get these next two pics to turn around.... They are showing up right but then on here not. Who knows! Anyways, one of the rooms read the story and had them make magic reindeer food. You can find this printable tag in Erica's tpt shop.

 One room made a train craft.

And another room made a reindeer snazzy snack. yum!

Once we were finished with our rotations all the students returned to their homeroom and we watched The Polar Express and enjoyed some sweet treats and hot chocolate.

Before the movie was over one of the sweet office ladies delivered a package straight from the North Pole! It was still cold! { thanks to the freezer ;) }

When we opened it we found a letter from Santa and 18 shiny bells!! They were all kinds of excited!

I forgot to snap a pic of our doors this year. :( But here is my door from one of the other times we did it.

Well blog friends that's a wrap on our December fun! I can't believe this year has come and gone. I look forward to sharing more fun things with you in 2014. 

Happy Sunday!
