Tomorrow I go back to work after a wonderful and relaxing winter break! One of the things I had intended to do was update my blog! There were 2 things that I wanted to post about!
Next to our classroom door is a space about the size of our door. I decided to decorate it for the holidays. This is what the kiddos and I did!
My kids and I really enjoyed making this and hanging it up. We're not looking forward to taking it down!
For the past 2 years, I have done a Holidays Around the World unit. For the most part, I use this bundle from Rachelle Smith. I don't have pictures of it but we turned into a book this year. I used these pocket folders with fasteners from Staples. They turned out to be absolutely ADORABLE! The kids were excited to take their books home!
I had looked at all of the holidays and when they're celebrated. I taught them in order from earliest holiday celebration to the latest celebration. Hanukkah was one of our last 2 holidays which I did on purpose. The day after learning about Hanukkah, I enlisted our guidance counselor / cooking guru's help to make potato latkes with my kiddos! It was fun! Check it out!
|Let's get those latkes in the pan!|
|I can't even begin to tell you how good my room smelled or how TASTY these latkes were!|
Yes, every last latke was eaten! All but one student LOVED the latkes!
Time to get ready for tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
