On the 9th Day of Christmas…

Who doesn't love tic-tac-toe?  Especially with penguins and snowmen?  C'mon you know you're gonna make yourself a set.  🙂 The kidlets can make these without too much fuss.  It is helpful to have envelopes or baggies for the little pieces, though. Get the files here. Happy 3-in-a-rowing!

On the 8th Day of Christmas…

Today's gift is the world's tiniest coloring book!  At least that's what I tell my class.  They love showing off these when they're done. This is another craft where you have to do some step-by-step instructions. The kiddos need scissors and a copy of this page. The idea is to

On the 5th Day of Christmas…

Read about the 12 Days of Christmas booklet here.   …My teacher gave to me a 5-pointed star that's bendy." Gah!  Who writes this stuff?? Seriously, though, I've tweaked this for years and that's the best I came up with.  Probably the reason I didn't choose "poet" as a career option.

Read about the 12 Days of Christmas booklet here.   Teacher thinks she's a comedian! Today we're making a riddle-filled flap book. For this activity, each student needs a copy of the main page. Students should cut around the outside dotted line.  That will leave them with a large rectangle.  Fold

On the 3rd Day of Christmas..

Read about the 12 Days of Christmas booklet here.   We have 3 round circles. Well, that doesn't sound too exciting. Unless, of course, you get to use the circles to make your very own SNOWMAN BOOKMARK! It certainly doesn't get more exciting than that.  Students can cut out and arrange

On the 2nd Day of Christmas…

Read about the 12 Days of Christmas booklet here. Today we have 2 mazes.  Fun for everyone! You can download them here. This year, in an attempt to save paper, we reduced these to 1/2 sheets.  It worked okay the the square maze, but I'm afraid it made the tree

My first blog post from my new computer!  The old laptop C-R-A-S-H-E-D so I had to get this new guy.  Merry Christmas to me!  You forget how much you rely on technology until it leaves you stranded.  I'm just glad my files weren't lost.  Phew! Can you believe Christmas is

November Writing

After last week's INSANITY (Halloween, torrential rain = inside recess, power outage, field trip) it was a relief to get back to normal today.  It gave us the first real chance to try out the November writing prompts.  I gathered a bunch of journal ideas from the internet and wrote
