Christmas, Christmas, Christmas!

We have been busy, busy, busy!  I love this time of year, but it gets very hectic in the classroom…you know, trying to somewhat teach amongst the chaos cheer and trying to squeeze every last ornament, craft, and activity into December before it's all too late!  Last week we were still in full blown centers and small groups; however, this week we're kinda not  doing the center thing and just working from my December Craze packet!  I have to tell you it's, been kinda wonderful having these print and play type games right at my fingertips to throw out there on the table when I need to!  And, I have lots of pictures to show you as well, so here goes!

These first 3 center games we played last week and you can find them in my Holly Jolly Christmas unit.
 I like integrating math and literacy into my centers as you can see below.
 They loved these interactive presents they could actually open to find the sight word to read.
 We matched numbers to number words with real gift tags!
These next 3 centers from last week can be found in my Deck the Halls unit.
 Working hard on middle sounds with this center...
Another interactive center where they build the sight word with lights! 
 This was the first center this year where they had to unscramble the sight word, but they did SO good!
 And, these 2 can be found in my December Craze packet…just print and play!  Plus, there are TONS more just like these in this packet!

I was so surprised last week when I first asked my kids the difference between needs and wants; SO we worked really hard on learning the difference.  This sorting activity can be found in my Holly Jolly Unit
 We made Needs and Wants Lists too.  They loved finding and cutting from magazines.

4 more days for me!  How about you??

Gingerbread Week!

This has to be one of the funnest weeks of our entire year!  I just love it!  If you have never done this with your kiddos you have to try it!  It is seriously so much fun!
 After reading as many versions of The Gingerbread Man that we could, Friday we made our own gingerbread cookie hoping he would NOT run away.  Here's our cookie pre oven.
  We are on our way to bake our cookie...
 After a few minutes, we went back to get him and, to our surprise…he DID run away! 
Of course, we had to hurry and try to catch him...
We looked everywhere!  No luck! But, during p.e., I got a call from the principal and she caught him running in the halls and had to sit him in time-out for a few minutes.
I went and got him out…and of course, we enjoyed him for snack!

Here's just a few of our gingerbread centers this week.  
The weekly pocket chart story

 An all time favorite…flipping cookies for ending sounds
 Literacy and Math integrated center
 And, building sight words on gingerbread houses.
These can be found in my Gingerbread Fun Unit HERE along with lots of other fun center games.
Also, check out THIS post for more gingerbread ideas from last year!

We made Runaway Gingerbread Cookies!  I love the way these turned out and they look so cute hanging in our hallway!

 We've also been learning about verbs so we made these cute little gingerbread friends and used verbs in our writing.

 We made these adorable little Santa's from The Glyph Girls.
You can find him HERE.
I sent home a letter to Santa and the students returned them with their wishes!

And, a FREEbie for ya!  
I was so tired of giving my students stickers to find them stuck to our floor so I made this and my kiddos were SO excited to begin their little collection!  You can find it  HERE if you need it!

If you're still reading this THANK YOU & comment below for a chance to win my Runaway Gingerbread Craft Pack.  I'll give it away to someone within the next 24 hours.  :)  Don't forget to leave your e-mail.
