What We've Been Up To--- December Style!

Here is a peek at some of the things we have been up to in December. Although we only had a couple of weeks before Christmas break we still managed to get a ton of fun things done in addition to our other work. 

We read the book Snowballs by Lois Ehlert and completed several activities based around this book. We learned how to label a picture. (sorry for the terrible lighting and my dirty board.. I can't seem for the likes of me to get that darn thing clean!) Students completed a labeling sheet similar to this from The Mailbox. 


We also discussed cause and effect and completed a cause and effect activity using information from the story Snowballs. The cause and effect sheet can be found in my "It's a Winter Wonderland of Fun" unit.

We made these snowmen... I previously blogged about these. The pattern can be found in my "It's a Winter Wonderland of Fun" unit on TPT.



We completed a How to Build a Snowman activity and I positively adore how great they turned out!! The How to Build a Snowman sheet is from my "It's a Winter Wonderland of Fun" unit that you can find in my TPT store. The too cute snowman that the kids colored that I put with the writing sheet I found over at Miss Kindergarten.






We made a tasty Snazzy Snack! These are called "Santa Grahams" and was totally Pinterest inspired!!!!


We made reindeer hand print ornaments..




This one was Pinterest inspired..And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!

We made Candy Cane ornaments using chenille stems and pony beads.. these are super easy and oh so cute!


Here is a pic of our cute little classroom tree... I failed to take one while it had all the sweet little presents under it.


And these popsicle stick ornaments are an old favorite of mine! I have made these every year since I've been teaching and got the idea from one that I actually made when I was in Kindergarten that my mom still had! We ran out of time and didn't get to do them this year. :( But I thought I'd share a picture in case you wanted to file the idea away for next year!

Well that's all I got for tonight sweet friends! Be sure to check out my "It's a Winter Wonderland of Fun" unit on TPT! It is full of activities that can be used all winter long!!
