Our elf Isaac has been causing trouble this week!
That pigeon just cannot stay out of trouble! The children LOVE the Elf on the Shelf!
I found this cute FREEBIE on Mel's blog Frog Spot. I had some older children for transition during the week and we did it. They loved the idea of giving Santa something. They were so creative! One wrote about giving Santa a rocket called "Santa 3000" to get him around that little bit quicker! Click here to download your own copy!
As I won't be having a class next year, I looked after the children who were moving to a new school in 2015. I had Kindergarten through to 5th Graders up until lunchtime. I needed to find activities that I could use with all! Luckily I had a trusty collection on my computer! Here is my newest pack - Christmas Symmetry and Patterns. They were so excited to try this one out! Some 1st Graders had a try as well as 3rd Graders.
We also did a science activity from my 15 Great Science Experiments for the Elementary Classroom. This one is called Coin Challenge. Kindergarten children through to 3rd Grade had a go at this one!
I have been spoilt this week with gifts from the children. This is my collection of presents from one family. They remembered me saying how much I love things that start with "ch" - so I got cherries (yummy), chocolates, hot chocolate mix (in place of the champagne) as well as a very cute Christmas decoration. Families are so thoughtful!
Thursday marked my 26 week mark. The baby is definitely sitting towards the back. I am definitely ready for the holidays this year! Exhausted!
