You know you are an online shopper when....

The  UPS  man  comes to your house daily.

You check the "package" spot on your porch, before you get out your front door key.

Your laptop automatically goes to AMAZON.

You look in the spare room, and YOU have more boxes than AMAZON!

OK.

I GIVE!

I shop. I shop well.

So...

CYBER MONDAY

Giving from the Heart... from the Kiddos

Teachers  are  givers.
Kids are TOO!


We want EVERYONE  to  have 
ALL of their WISHES come true!

BUT....

So how?
How can we teach curriculum,  maintain  sanity,
and MAKE WISHES COME TRUE?

Give!

GIVE  FROM  THE  HEART!

In our classroom we  make ornaments.

NOT all of the ornaments are for CHRISTMAS.

Some of my kiddos don't celebrate Christmas.

BUT...
They  create.  They  inspire.  They  give.
From the  Heart.

My  favorite things are HANDMADE.
( Sniff... from the heart)  :)

Where do we get our  " inspirations" ?

PINTEREST!
(You can follow me here...)


No stress...pictures...some directions...Ahhhhh.
My  happy  place!

Here are some of MY  favorite  ideas!


https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AauKHq04s3VIDuE8bceSrLCmvzxEHKxLIV9dfmZwn2y-Qrg2qgtIP88/

Popsicle  sticks! 
Glue! Paint!  Decor!

Let the imagination go!

NOT ALL OF MY KIDS MAKE THE SAME ORNAMENTS!
Let them have choice!

I show them the pictures.
 I share the BASICS.
I let them GO!

MY  choices and their choices MAY BE DIFFERENT!

Different is good! 

Give from YOUR heart!

SALT  DOUGH!

Who doesn't  like  DOUGH?

Squishy, squeezy  balls of  FUN?

I  LOVE  handprint ornaments.
(GMA  HERE)  :)

Our kiddos are small for such a short time.
Make those MEMORIES!

I  bring out ALL the cookie cutters I can find, borrow, beg for.

SUGGESTIONS...

Don't let them be too THICK.
Let them dry FOR A LONG TIME ( 3-4 days ) 
before PAINTING!

Hot glue string on the back after dry,
OR
Poke a hole on the dough with a straw BEFORE drying.

MY newest LOVE!

HANDPRINT   SNOWMEN!

ALL of MY kiddos make this one!

I make these in small groups
( I can only do 3-4 kiddos at a time)

If you have a PARENT HELPER...
this is a PERFECT craft for them!)

Paint on day 1.
DRY  day 2.
Faces ( I suggest  BLACK SHARPIES )  Day 3
Scarves  (  felt, material/ paper scraps...srapbook paper works great!)   Day  4
Let EVERYTHING DRY 
& then 
add  a  string  for  a  hanger!

BE SUPER CAREFUL when sending these home!
( No dropping )

Place in a gift bag
 ( we use hand decorated lunch bags)
with LOTS, LOTS, LOTS
of tissue !

So...we  GIVE FROM THE HEART!

It's not about the $$ amount 
when giving.

It's about the thought, the effort, and the LOVE
that goes into it!

Here is another gift I do FOR my kiddos.
See the blog POST here.


I hope you have a WONDERFUL Holiday SEASON!

Make memories.
Share the LOVE.
And

Give From the HEART!

Throwback Thursday! Matching Game...NO PREP!

Is it 
THURSDAY?

Yippey!!!
Happy  Friday  EVE!  :)

Just a short note on a

 SUPER FUN GAME

to help your kiddos

practice spelling / vocabulary / HFW words!


Do you remember 
THE  MATCHING  GAME?

Well.... I have "tweaked" it for my classroom.

Materials needed:

2   colors   of    BLANK   PAPER!
Pencil
Dark  Crayon



THAT'S IT!

Easy  Peasy!

Now  What?

1.   Have  Kiddos  FOLD  their  paper  into 16  squares.
(  Fold it horizontal twice  &  Vertical  twice!)

2.  Use pencil to TRACE  the  fold lines.
(This ensures a BOX for kids to write their words in.)

3. I write the words on MY paper 
and use my DOC CAMERA for kids to see, so they can copy.

4.  Cut SQUARES apart into word cards.


5.  Kids stack their cards.

6. Find  a  PARTNER  with  different colored  cards.

7. They place ALL cards words DOWN.

8.  Rock, paper, scissors.  Winner  goes  first.

9. Turn over ONE of their cards & ONE of their partner's cards.

10.  Read...read...read!  Do they MATCH?

11. If they match...they stack BOTH cards!

12. If not, turn them over and try again!

No WINNERS or LOSERS...
ALL DONE?     PLAY  AGAIN!  :)

SO  FUN!





We usually have 6 spelling words.

I  ALWAYS  add  MORE!

I  am teaching  word  strategies.
NOT  MEMORIZING  FOR A TEST!

Keep  them learning!

Have FUN!
