Well, it is definitely NOT beginning to look like Christmas in my room! Our district came down hard this year saying absolutely NO Christmas stuff! We can't put up little trees in our room, we cannot make ornaments to send home, none, zip, zilch, nada! I have been seeing all these amazing freebies out in blogland and get so sad because the majority of them are Christmas related. So, I instead of getting depressed I thought of fun winter'ish things that I could still do! Gingerbread, snowmen, snowflakes, etcetera! I had to decorate my door of course! Meet Sid the Snowman...
Isn't he cute?
For Language Arts we are doing a genre study of fairytales, folktales, and fables until break. I am so excited! I love fairytales! Last year I made three different anchor charts but this year our district specified that in first grade we don't need to get that specific. So my anchor chart is a combo of the three.
I can't seem to upload my gingerbread freebie so I will try to post it tomorrow!
Ta for now!
