Catching Up

I have been absent from blog world for awhile.  The holidays just took over my life.  I think I am ready to jump back in. But I need to play some catch-up first.

My wonderful friend Maria posted about our amazing Pete the Cat week (so much fun!)  I had some pictures that she did not, so I thought I would share them.

1. I only have two days of our friend Karen dressing up for Pete the Cat week.  But the firsties loved
 comparing and contrasting her clothes.




2. I used a plate to make a cute Pete the Cat mask for the whole school to use for a picture.  The scarf and gloves helped the "Pete the Cat" effect in the picture.






3. These are some pins that I made for fun.  The four us wore them each day.  Then I gave four away to four lucky firsties.






We are starting a snowman unit this week.  Complete with poems, shape snowmen, graphs, prepositional snowman writing, snowman melting, and (my personal favorite) melted snowman cookies!

And finally...I could not pass up a chance to do a "Currently" this month from Oh'Boy Fourth Grade.




Happy New Year everyone!

  2. I am addicted to way too many shows. It is kind of crazy! I agree with Becky, I am super jealous about your Hawaii trip. I went last summer to visit my sister, who's hubby is stationed there. I LOVED it!! Have a great trip. :)

      I hope you get to make it there one day! I went once when I was a teenager. But my husband has never been. It will be neat to experience it again with him!
