Loving our Polar Express Pajama Party!

We had such a fun day today! We started off our day with donuts and milk from Miss Bader, then we enjoyed watching The Polar Express in our pajamas holding our favorite stuffed animal.    Great job students on earning more than 10 blue tickets, keep showing great character!!!  As always be respectful, be responsible, and be safe!

Special Visitor and Making Bird feeders with Ms. Holz

We had a very special visitor today in our classroom, Miss Bader's Mom!!!  Judy read us a very fun-loving book, Santa's New Suit and helped us work on our Christmas presents for our families!  Thank you so much for helping us today, we hope you visit again soon!
Ms. Holz also visited our classroom today and we made some special animal feeders, it was a lot of fun.  Please put these outside for animals to feed on during this very cold week!

Walking in our wooden shoes from Holland!

Our Elf Chippy and our journey to Holland!

Hello everyone! I would like to introduce you to our Elf, Chippy.  The kids named him and are so excited to see where he is and what he is up to everyday in our classroom.  He is full of Christmas magic and so no kids can touch him (or he looses his magic), and if we are making good choices he flies to tell Santa every night and lands somewhere new in our classroom!  Check back often to see what Chippy is up to in our classroom!
In our Holidays Around the World unit we learned all about Holland today.  One custom in Holland is the families like to wear their wooden shoes around the Holidays.  We each had a chance to try on a real pair of decorative wooden shoes and try to walk in them.  Most all of the students decided that the wooden shoes wouldn't be something they would want to wear everyday!
