Merry Christmas!

I made it through the last week of school before Christmas break! To be perfectly honest, it was a complete blurr. I can't believe how quickly it went by! Anyways, let's jump right in to our crazy week:

First our school had a door decorating contest and I got this adorable idea from Pinterest (of course)...

One of our Literacy Centre activities was a festive version of Write the Room. Rather them just looking for words already around our room, I "hid" pictures of the words all around my room to make it more challenging:

Despite the insanity of the week, I tried my best to keep curriculum in our activities. My kids love graphing and, if you're anything like me, you love an activity that is easily cross-curricular. These Sight Word Graphing worksheets from The Moffatt Girls are fantastic!! The pack includes all 41 Dolch sight words and can be used for either literacy or math centres:
(Click on the pic to grab a copy!)

The kiddies completed a Christmas Graphing worksheet that I made to help them practice displaying information, problem solving, and interpreting graphs:

The last graphing centre I'll share/remembered to take pictures of is Reindeer Nose Graphing using black, brown, and red pompoms:
(Sorry, I can't remember where I got this...free TpT product?)

In the spirit of having the kiddies decorate our room, I had them complete this super simple wreath activity by ripping paper and gluing it on a paper plate with the centre cut out:

I had a zillion ideas for what we were going to make our families for Christmas and then my lovely fellow Grade One teacher next door shared this craft idea with me:
Her awesome husband cut and nailed wood together to make the snowman bases and then it was up to the kiddies to paint and decorate their wooden snowman. The hats are gloves; the eyes, nose, and buttons are foam; the arms are twigs; and the scarf is just strips of fabric from Walmart. They turned out super cute! Thank you Mrs. Montgomery!
Next we made cards to go with our gifts. I saw this adorable thumbprint idea on Pinterest...
I LOVE each and every one of them. It was surprisingly simple to make as well. Just brown paint thumbprints and then markers for antlers, eyes, noses, and ears. 

The last craftivity we did was one I stole from Abby Mullins:
It was cute to see all of their different responses:

Last but not least, here are some photos from our second Christmas Concert performance for the ladies and gentlemen at Princess Court (old age home):
("There was a little baby, Oh my Lord!")
("I want a hippopotamus for Christmas!")
("Mom says a hippo would eat me up but then teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian")

Have a safe and Merry Christmas everyone!!! See you in 2013! Enjoy all the snow if you have it!
