I thought I'd share just a few activities from our last week.
We did these little reindeer activities. They are a part of my Writing Piece of the Month Unit. I save each of the pieces thy complete, and bind them at the end of the year to create their Writing Portfolios.
We also did this sweet little gift activity. It's a bit like secret Santa. They each drew a random number. The numbers corresponded to their class numbers. They wrote a sweet little note to the person they secretly got. On the last day, I passed them out and they got to read the nice messages they received from a classmate. They really enjoyed getting a special message hand written and illustrated just for them by a friend. You can get this in my Dear Santa...Santa Craftivity set. If you already purchased this set, please re-download it for this Friendship Gift Printable.
Here are a few:
We made these snowman ornaments this year as parent gifts. They came out really cute! I had a whole stack of old CD's, what a great way to recycle.
I got the original idea from Jackie at Happy Hooligans and fell in love with her little snowmen right away. I just changed the nose a bit and went a little overboard with glitter. But, I really love how they all turned out. I wish I had taken a picture of all of them!!!
