It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas (in Mrs. Miner's Room)

I always do a bullying lesson around the Rudolph
story (which just happens to be on!) This
project was totally Pinterest inspired, but I have no idea
the origination.  If anyone knows, please comment below!

The students made themselves into Rudolph, then wrote a speech
bubble that said what they would say to bullies.  My personal favorite?
"Teasing.  Stop." :)

These grace our halls every year thanks to our wonderful
art teacher.  This is one of my favorite art pieces she
does with the kinders!

Take note how different all of them are (even though they all
had the same pattern!).  The signs say, "Eat ____, not cookies."

Here are some of the returns from our Save the Gingerbread Man Project

Holiday Pokey Pinning away! 

adding an additional literary component (of course!) to
some Gingerbread Man fun.  They loved it...

This was a 5 senses lesson.  I use sandpaper on the die cut machine.
The students rub cinnamon sticks on it to make it smell and I add
foam puffy paint as frosting! 

To top off my already festive day, this is what I came home to.  My incredible parents had driven over (a half hour by the way, not just down the road!) and brought these deer to us.  They had it all plugged in and lit up so when we drove up we got to see it!  They are just so thoughtful and always doing things to bring joy to their grandchildren's life!  We all love you so much mom and dad!
I hope something in my picture post has inspired you because I know all of my ideas are inspired elsewhere and I just love to share and give back for all I receive acrossed the blogging world.
