Here are some places we went to this week:
The kids decorated a little piece of coal because it's considered good luck to receive a piece in England.
In Italy the kids learned about Befana and made this little broom to remember her by.
I remembered that I had this book by Tomie DePaola. Perfect!
We also went to Mexico and made a poinsettia.
I love it when we can tuck our projects into the bag book to save our crafts.
We continued on into China and made some dragons. So cute!
This cutie was really proud of her dragon!
We also went to Germany and made a little gingerbread craft. I forgot to take pictures, but I did take some pictures of the gingerbread cookies I made for my kids. Four hours of work and I didn't think they tasted too great :/ but the kids said they were delicious. They especially liked the royal icing, go figure.
I spent HOURS making my student's Christmas presents. It took forever but it was worth it. To create them I used my Cricut to cut the vinyl and then used transfer tape to add the names to the bottles. They kids were stoked!
I will have to add a close up of one of them, but here they are on my students' desks.
We ended the week by watching the Polar Express. Santa himself brought us bells from the North Pole!! Yep, we have our very own personal Santa here:)
We wrapped up the last day of school by taking home parent gifts. These ornaments were easy to make and super cute.
