My girls are LOVING helping with the tree this year! They did laps around our main floor with beads until we got the ornaments out. So stinkin cute!!! Here is a pic the hubby caught of them with their beads.
My girls are really into helping me with anything in the kitchen right now so I want to make cookies with them and then have them help me pass them out to some of our neighbors for our RAK activity!
Here is Katie's Currently!
I love this time of year before Christmas break. We have so many fun things that I LOVE doing with the kiddos, but for some reason my group this year has set a new level of tattling and dislike for personal responsibility. On top of that for some reason they have chosen this time of year to kick it into high gear! I can't get a straight answer out of over 1/2 my class! If I ask what that kiddo did they always answer with some version of, "so and so made me do it, told me to do it, everyone else did it too!", etc. Grrrrrrr!!!! I'm running out of ways to say, "I'm not asking about anyone else, I am only asking what you did".
2 more weeks....2 more weeks....2 more weeks....
I am really looking forward to recharging over break and brainstorming some ideas on how to get through to these little darlings!!
On to a more fun topic! My kiddos are obsessed with holidays (any of them!) and craftivities this year so I have been taking advantage of it big time! For some reason they love to make seasonal craftivities with their spelling words on them and to have me hang them from the ceiling! Hey, if it gets them to practice spelling I am all for it!!! We did turkeys for Thanksgiving and wrote spelling words on the feathers and for Christmas we are getting ready to do a tree with ornaments tomorrow! My kiddos saw a parent helper cutting out the pieces of the craftivity and have been talking about it all week! If you would like to grab the pattern just click on the picture below!
