HOLIDAY EDITION

Let me start by saying THANK YOU

Thanks to all who helped with our Gingerbread houses, both funding and helping to make the houses. A special thanks to those of you who took time out of your busy schedules to come help with our holiday crafts (and I can't say much more.... but you will see what I mean on Christmas morning ). Also, thank you to those who couldn't come in but sent your love and support. Our class loves and appreciates all of the help we have received!

Meet Chip the Elf

Lucky for us, two lovely students took the initiative to write to Santa asking for an elf on the shelf for our classroom. Lo and behold, the next day we had a silly little guy show up to watch our kiddos. The best part about Chip... he came wearing an ugly Christmas sweater!

Things got ugly in Room 112!

I like to think that we have a pretty good lookin' class. I mean really... these kids are practically models. But good grief did these guys get tacky on Friday! What a creative bunch! The ugly sweaters were very impressive.

Tracking our Christmas Trees

A former 4th grade teacher from MIS has a Christmas Tree Farm in her family. In studying NC and how tree farming is a big business, we had the students fill out tree tags. When they are done they are brought to the farm, and attached to trees that are shipped out all over the US. When families purchase their trees, they find the tags and email/mail the students. We have received one email and photo from a family in Port St. Lucie, Florida who got a tree with Katelyn's tag on it.
