I read The Mouse Before Christmas to my students and then we made our own little mouse.
You can get the pattern from the talented Glyph Girls.
We made these snowman ornaments for gifts to their parents. I put each students' picture in the center. I bought the snowman kits from Oriental Trading Company. This year I wanted a simple gift for them to make for their parents.
Every day my student look forward to finding Frosty our elf. Sometime he leaves treats for the students who follow directions in class. I am the only one in our school that has an elf in the classroom. It is fun to hear the other students ask about our elf and tell me stories about our elf.
Head on over to my TPT store for your Christmas Freebie. It includes missing addends, addition and subtraction with regrouping, 2-step word problem, comparing numbers, identifying verbs, making contractions, and end punctuation.
I am linking up with Amy Lemons at Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons to showcase a few of things we have been doing in our classroom.
