Cherry Blossoms, Elf yourself and Christmas

Oh my so much I've been wanting to post, but I have been super busy with school, the holidays, birthdays and more!!

First and for most my heart goes out to those in CT. I plan on making some snowflakes and sending them to CT for the children when they return in January. There is an article out there from the huffingtonpost explaining more about this project. See link below!

Okay fun stuff that's been happening in room 29!

We are working on summary writing and one of the articles my class read was about Cherry Trees and the festival Japan has in April. Here is what I sent home with my kids today. A little bit of writing and a fun art project.



We have an art program at our school where a parent docent teaches an art lesson to the students. This month for December the kids had the chance to "Elf yourself." These turned out really cute and some of the drawings really look like my students. Fun and cute!!!


 

Christmas Break is finally here. Tomorrow the 21st is our last day, so I have a gift ready for my students and they are ready to participate in their book gift exchange!



Some other things happening...My baby boy is 5!! We celebrated his 5th birthday (Dec. 9th) at Disneyland. It was his first trip! He also just lost his first tooth tonight! Man what a great and exciting month for my little guy!!

December Currently...Favorite month!!

Wow my favorite month is finally here. We are ready for Christmas to come. House is decorated and all. We got everything ready last weekend after Thanksgiving. Boy am I glad we did. Yesterday I stayed home from work along with hubby and son. We all had the stomach flu. We slept most of the day away. I still sent my daughter to daycare so we could rest. She was fine until this morning when she was basically a couch potato on me for the first two hours she was awake. She has been sick most of the day today. Luckily we are all on the mend now so we can have a good rest of the weekend.

December is a busy month for us. Hubby, son and myself all have December birthdays, but not just us, my dad and older brother are also December babies. My son is turning 5 on the 9th and we have a Disneyland trip planned for him and a friend. He knows we are going, but not that a friend can go. I have already arranged it with his friend, she is a close friend of mine, so it works out easy. This will be Jameson's first trip to Disneyland! I love Disneyland and Christmas so this is the perfect time to go. I am so excited!!

Here is my December currently that I am linking up with Farley at
