Before Christmas gets too far behind us, I wanted to share a few of the holiday happenings in my classroom.
In my Dec. 7th post (Meet Jingles), I introduced you to our classroom elf. I just have to share the rest of Jingles's visits with you. And while I'm at it, I'm linking up with Mel D. at Seusstastic Classroom Inspirations. Here we go!
First, Jingles drew on my family pictures with (gasp!) Sharpie! The kiddos were genuinely sad that my pictures were ruined. I told them that I was sure Jingles had a magical way of removing the Sharpie!
And while she was eating them, she read our book "The Secret Life of a Snowflake" and made some snowflakes for our classroom!
What a mess she made!
The next day, Jingles delivered a letter to us from Santa. It said that he gave Jingles permission to give us some Magic Elf Seeds to grow in our classroom since all the children were behaving so nicely. We were to place the seeds in sugar and sprinkle them with a tiny bit of salt. In 2 days, we would get a magical surprise!
Day 2 - We are beginning to see something!
Day 3 - We have a magical treat!
The next day, Jingles took one of our bags of marshmallows (for our Polar Express hot chocolate later in the week) and decided to make a "snow angel".
Jingles was super fun! I hope she comes back to visit my classroom next year!
Hope you are having a wonderful holiday vacation!
