I can't say enough about all of the wonderful help that our classroom receives from others. Not only do we have some fantastic parents but we also have middle school peer mentors, a sweet volunteer from our neighboring church and "alumni" that come over to help. What a blessing to be thankful for this Christmas.
|Kionna, a middle school peer mentor that has been helping in my room since she was a fourth grader!|
|Kennedy, also a peer mentor, who is my right hand in the afternoon when sanity is quickly draining!|
|Brittney and a friend from Fourth Grade. |
Brittney was in my very first Kindergarten Class at Providence!
|My oldest daughter, Shanley, home from college on Christmas Break coming to help with Handprint Santas. |
With her is another alum, Raven, from my class last year.
|Christine and Morgan lend a helping hand with last minute projects!|
|Ms. Booker recommends using about 2 1/2 yards of fleece for app. 20 students. She just cut them into strips and knotted the ends.|
|They turned out great and her children were adorable wearing their new scarves the next day at school!|
|Ms. Booker and her students made these Christmas Tree pot holders as their parent gift. I love how colorful they are and you can't go wrong with the children's hand prints!|
|This was a Christmas scrapbook page that I framed as a thank you to my Parent Volunteers. |
Next is a Holiday Counting Book that Ms. Booker made with her class.
|I used this Christmas Tree pattern page from Deanna Jump's Santa unit on our last day. We patterned with Skittles.|
|We also practiced positional patterning with candy canes.|
|This idea and the worksheet came from April Larremore's unit |
on The Polar Express.
|Diligently writing the AB pattern down!|
|Enjoying that last candy cane!|
|I thought that I would share with you a Christmas photo from waaaaaay back of some of my sweetest friends. On the far left you will see my friend, Suzan, from Krazy for Kindergarten! Good times...|
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
