Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!

Tag Archives: Christmas list

We read the classic Christmas story The Night Before Christmas, and learned how to write lists.  Then we wrote a list to Santa of what we wanted for Christmas.

Throughout last week we’ve also been talked about how it is important to give and have a generous heart.  We spent the week making Christmas tree ornaments as a present to our family members.  To make the craft, we first took three Popsicle sticks and glued them together.  Then we painted them green and glued some green construction paper on the back.  Students then glued some beads as ornaments for the tree.

 


We finished off our Polar Express week with talking about Santa.  Students describe him using the Polar Express as an example as well as other Christmas related stories.  Students were able to describe how he was kind, giving, jolly, and friendly.  Then they wrote their Christmas lists and created their own Santa art.

To be like Santa students also began making Christmas ornament presents for their friends and family.  They took clear ornaments and put two different colors of paint and swirled them around to make a marble effect.
