Christmas Crafts & Freebies!

Woo hoo...officially on vacation!! I know some of you still have another week to go, so here are some fun things we did this past week that you might want to check out.

We made this Elf Craftivity that turned out pretty cute. Click to download my Elf Craftivity FREEBIE
 You might remember these from last year, but I just had to do them again! By the way, we used acrylic craft paint and NOT tempera. It works so much better!
We made these super simple Christmas trees using strips of green paper. I got this idea from Mrs. Lee. It's also a great activity for practicing ordering lengths.
I brought in a big red bag of items representing needs and wants and we sorted "Santa's Sack" into two hula hoops (needs or wants). Then we did this Needs & Wants Stocking Sort.
We wrote letters to Santa! This template is included in my Christmas Math & Literacy Centers. We put them all in a big envelope with some stamps so we could mail them to the North Pole!
We also made these reindeer hats again! They're just too cute!
We made our yearly calendars for our parent gifts. This is a template I got from my colleagues. Maybe next year I will make my own and put it up as a freebie ;)
Parent gifts all wrapped up and ready to go! We made these quick gift bags for our ornaments and wrapped our calendars in tissue paper.


To keep the kiddies busy while I finished my report card assessments, I made up this fun Christmas Add & Color game. Click the image to download your FREEBIE!

We also had lots of fun with our Christmas Centers. Sorry I didn't have time to take any pics!

Merry Christmas everyone! Have a happy and healthy holiday season!

Silence for Sandy Hook

My heart is broken for those beautiful innocent little children and their teachers. May they rest peacefully. My love and thoughts go out to all those who have been affected by this terrible tragedy ;(

Christmas Centers Pack + FREEBIE!

I'm really starting to get into the Christmas spirit! The Christmas tree is up, cookies are baking in the oven...I love the smells of Christmas! And after a few delays, I've finally got my Christmas centers up! I was feeling so sick last weekend that I couldn't do anything. I literally spent the whole weekend sleeping! So I got most of the pack done during the week, and it was all ready to go up on Friday...when suddenly half of the word documents somehow got corrupted! And none of it was backed up yet! I was soooooo upset! Anyway, I spent this whole weekend re-doing the entire pack and now it's even better than before! Check out the pics below to see some of what's included. Click on the first image to go to my store. Then click PREVIEW to download your Write the Room FREEBIE!!!! Merry Christmas!
