We made it! Today was a day to celebrate the two weeks of vacation. I allowed the class to play (not do the social studies project unless they really wanted to) on the Chrome Books or iPads.
My awesome room moms (and lots of other parents) provided a breakfast first thing. After that, I put in a movie until it was time for crafts (gingerbread houses). We then did lunch, went outside for recess (badly needed), came in, and watched the Finding Nemo.
The crafts involved constructing gingerbread houses and then making other things. I have a slide show below. Other pictures will be on the class Shutterfly page.
Then, it was time for specials (science) while I cleaned up the debris. Afterwards, it was send them on their way.
While I have sent out thank you notes, I still want to thank everyone who brought in gifts for me! It really, truly, means everything to me! Thanks again and I hope everyone has a wonder break! Take care and see you in January!
