Christmas Vacation...

Wednesday, December 19, 2012
I have been enjoying my Christmas break, but I also miss my 4th graders.  On our last day before break, we ate the Grinch Cookies I made from the recipe I found on Pinterest at Delicious Meliscious.  She has wonderful recipes!!!  We also watched the movie, and colored a Grinch handout.  

I gave each of my students a glitter snowball, and they LOVED them!!!   

It was a fun day filled with memories.  I hope all of you have a wonderful vacation with your family and friends.  

I know we will all still be praying and thinking of the families and community in Connecticut.

Day 3 with Ruby the 4th grade Elf...

Wednesday, December 12, 2012
Today's letter from Ruby suggested we read the "Skippyjon Jones" book she was reading to some of the stuffed animal friends she found around our classroom.  

Here are some pictures of Ruby and also some pictures of the Journal entries I thought were so funny:

Day 2 with Ruby...

Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Today my 4th graders found Ruby, our 4th grade elf, asleep on a pile of Tiger Tickets.  There was a trail of tickets leading from my teacher desk to where she made her little nest to sleep on last night.  She suggested that I give the tickets to the students; she is such a thoughtful little elf!  =)

Here are some pictures, Enjoy!

A trail of tickets... 

Fast asleep on a pile of Tiger Tickets!

She suggested that I give all of the students 2 tickets.  They LOVED that idea!!!  =)

I was inspired to start the Elf idea that I have been seeing around blogland and Pinterest.  I love the free Elf Journal that I found from a great blog called Teaching, Dreaming, Learning.   So here are some pictures of Day 1, and how I am making it fit for my 4th graders, which they LOVED!!!  =)

Day 1:  Today we found this letter, our journals, cute pencils, and our new little friend, Ruby.

Sweet little letter...

Ruby, our Elf!

Looking forward to what she will do for tomorrow!
