We made it!

Well, we made it to Thanksgiving Break! I love teaching, but am in need of a little break filled with family, friends, and good food! Before we left today I got our classroom Christmas tree put up!

My students "homework" over the break us is to take their two dimensional net and make a 3D shape (cubes, rectangular prism, and rectangular pyramid nets are printed on cardstock). Then, they decorate it with anything they have (markers, glitter, google eyes, pictures etc) and being it back to school as a Christmas ornament to hang on our tree. Some love it, some never bring it back. This group seemed really excited over it though!

I also put up a few Christmas decorations around the room. I've got another bag of stuff to take to school to decorate with!
