Pictures of What Fellow Bloggers Inspired

A big shout out to my fellow bloggers!! Thanks to you, I have not had to plan and create many of my lessons the past couple of weeks. I have used what many of you have shared in your blogs. I have posted a few pictures to share. Hopefully other bloggers can use some of these activities now or next Christmas....thanks again!
The wall outside my classroom....full of writing activities, crafts, and math straight from some of your units!

We did a week long study of How The Grinch Stole Christmas, inspired by Deanna Jump's Grinch Unit.

My Shape Reindeer craft and math lesson was inspired by Tales of a Teacherista's Wild Christmas Reindeer Unit
Synonyms Make Our Writing Merry & Bright! This activity was stolen from one of my co-workers last year. So cute!

Tomorrow we will begin two days of Christmas in Russia. My class studies Christmas in Russia because we do an author study on Patricia Pollaco during November and December. She brings in alot of her Russian heritage and culture into her books. You can download your FREE Christmas in Russia unit by clicking  HERE.
Then, finally, Thursday arrives!!!! It is our last day before Winter Break. I look forward to our Polar Express Pajama Party with a hot coco bar set up and yummy powder donuts!!
