December Rewind & Winter Freebie

Wow! Can you believe this year is already at an end? It amazes me how quickly time flies especially when you're having so much fun teaching kindergarten! Since joining the blogging world this past summer, I've learned so much from my fellow bloggers and my wonderful followers! I want to thank each and everyone of you for helping me become a better teacher! 

December was full of excitement this year. Here are few pictures to recap some of the fun we had...
Our Polar Express pajama day is probably one of my favorite days of the school year! The kids always look so cute in their pj's and I love how excited they get about one of my favorite books! Of course, I have a super cute picture of my lions in their pj's but after searching my flash drive numerous times I realized the pictures are on my school computer! (I'll have to update this post once I get back to school!)

My fabulous room mom made us some amazing hot chocolate for our special day! After teaching kindergarten for 10 years, I know that hot chocolate has to be enjoyed at our tables...I've seen one to many cups spill all over the floor! Of course, we made a BIG pillow pallet on the rug and watched the movie after drinking our fabulous hot chocolate! 
We had a special visitor this year from the North Pole! After lots of brainstorming, my lions named our elf "Elfie." The first thing my lions did every morning was look for Elfie.

He was a sneaking little guy!
 Elfie learned how to spell his name while visiting our class!

My new favorite Christmas book is  Mooseltoe by Margie Palatini! My kids had a blast creating their own "moostaches" for Christmas! Such a simple but great activity!  

Last but not least was our class Christmas party! We always try to keep things simple so this year we made Santa hats using an ice cream cone & marshmallows! My lions did such a great job following directions and making sure none of the icing went to waste! Can we say "SUGAR RUSH"? Good thing our party was at the end of the day!
