busy hands

Despite the fact that the children are already showing signs of holiday overload, our week in the classroom was fairly productive and definitely fun! :)

cranberries and popcorn

geometric solids

this doesn't happen very often
in my classroom!

ringing a bell in
the red rod maze
** the student's own design

numerals and counters
the holiday variation
**This lesson is usually
done on a rug
for obvious reasons!

Christmas tree

**I laugh because I posted about
teeny ornaments, but
some of these
are HUGE!

in the other classroom,
not mine!

  1. I love your weekly photo gallery. Such neat stuff going on in your classroom. I was glad to see the rug work on a table because that happens in my class too! I had a question..........for the popcorn, cranberry garland how did you do the thread/needles? Did you pre-thread a bunch of needles? What kind of needles and what type of thread do you use? I love this idea and am doing it at home this month with the boys, but hadn't thought to put it in the classroom.

  2. All looks so much fun!! Great ideas, so thanks! Thanks for your kind words on yet another of my misery posts :0)
