Busy, Busy, Busy

Oh me, oh my! I have been so incredibly busy recently. I have been so busy with school, Christmas, and getting ready for Baby Wolfe! 


Tomorrow is my school's last day before Christmas break. We have a half day so it will go so fast. We have a party and that is basically all.

Here are some of the things my class has been working on...

Holidays Around the World.  This is my first year in a long time doing this.  My kiddos loved it!   

On the very special day of December 12, 2012 (12-12-12) we made special hats.  I got this great resource from:
Check out this blog.  It is great!!

Aren't the hats adorable?  I hope this helped my students learn the number 12 better. 

This week we made Christmas Tree hats.  The students cuts the tress and then decorated their hats how they wanted.

This week at school we have had really fun and exciting days.

Monday was a normal school day or at least as normal as you can get after the tragedy on Friday.  We did have a meeting to talk about it in the morning.  Our school is already pretty secure so the only thing we have changed right now is keeping our classroom doors locked at all times. 

Tuesday we had a dessert contest and a Christmas sweater/dress up contest.

This is how everyone on my team dress!

Some of the teacher's went all out.  One teacher had her hair on top of her head.  She reminded me of a Dr. Seuss character.  Another teacher wore a cardboard Christmas tree.  They both tied for first!

The second contest was a dessert contest.  It was such a yummy day!  It is actually a good thing I am pregnant because then I don't feel bad for eating so much.  (hehehe)

I made two different kinds of cookies.  Andes Mint Cookies and a Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The Andes Mint Cookies got second place!  Wahoo!!

They were nice and easy to make and delicious. 

Wednesday (today) at school my class went to the North Pole.  They watched The Polar Express and had hot chocolate.  I had to leave during the North Pole visit because my son had his Christmas Concert.  Here is a picture of my lil deer after he sang is heart out.
