Staying Steady and Quick ideas

It's been a very busy couple of months.  Here are just a few things that we have done this week.

I had a beautiful snowman salt shaker that I've had for years and I just found a cute Santa on a chimney salt/pepper shaker.  I like having small ways to decorate my desk for the season so I bought them.  Yes they were on sale.  I put extra fine glitter in each one.  I sprinkle a little bit of Christmas Spirit on each child.  Not too much.  Just enough to be able to see the sparkle on their clothes.
We skyped with our new friends from Texas.
We had our Christmas Concert.  Don't we look lovely.
We will do an hour of code today.  Check that out here.  This Computer Science Week.
One of my students created this Santa and Reindeer display.  I had to put it up!
 This was our Thanksgiving Family homework project.  I had them create beautiful wreaths.
 I love love love Pinterest!  16 triangles and 13 elves…So cute!
 Another Pinterest Special!  Love my Reindeer door!
 Have you ever thought about putting up a placemat as a decoration?  I love my red snowflake! Cheap and easy!
 Garland in the door way….easy decoration!

We will have our holiday celebration today.  We will be adding to the Red Barrel called Operation Happiness.  It's a way for my students to give back.

I hope all is well and that you are enjoying the holiday season.


  1. Claire-
    It looks like you have been busy there! I miss our Skype sessions! Have you been Skyping with Mrs. Hilsabeck's class again this year?

  2. Hi Laurie,
    I so miss our Skype sessions, too. Yes, we just skyped for the first time last week. It was great! We need you to keep us on track with our connections though. We will try to Skype more often in the new year. How's Fourth grade going?
