We named our elf:
Here are a few places we found Candy Cane this week (I forgot to take pics of all the places):
Apparently Candy Cane loves dark chocolate-like the teacher:)
As part of a math project this week, we made these cute lil' ornaments. We are working on graphing so I thought the kids would enjoy making ornaments and graphing the colors the class chose. Full disclosure-the pictures you are seeing are from round two of the ornament making. Yes, round two:). Round one didn't go as planned. This lesson was a great reminder for me that firsties need step by step instructions. Always. No exceptions. Any-hoo...the ornaments came out adorable and we were able to learn some awesome graphing concepts!
Here is one final thing I thought I'd share...tracking sticks! I was amazed at the excitement these sticks created! Who knew a simple sticker and popsicle stick would make reading so much more enjoyable?!
