2011 has been an exciting year! We had our son Ethan who is growing so quickly! We did some more work to our house and will continue to work on it in 2012. My husband started his new job and we have had the opportunity to reconnect with friends! I also began bloggin this year. It has been fun and exciting! Break has been restful and fun. Unfortunately, also very busy. I have not had the opportunity to make lots of new activities, but I plan on making some this up coming week. I still have off! Yay! One more week to spend with my little one! One activity I did create was matching letters to form a word. We will be doing this activity as a whole group and then we will do it in centers. This activity will teach my students how to match and learn some letters if they are ready (some just need to work on matching!) and I will also show the students how to read from left to right. Another skill that many do not know. I am lucky if they hold the book the correct way right now! Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful 2012! I will continue to post some new books and such using either Scrappin' Doodles or KPM Doodles. So some activities will be coming soon! :)

This past week was fun and busy at school. We finished up our presents for the parents and had our party on Wednesday. I took some pictures of the fun things that we do in December.
We sing Raffi's Must Be Santa and act it out. Picture clues are used to help the kids know the actions.

We did a counting activity using the small ornaments at Target. The counting mats are from http://prekinders.com/christmas-theme/.

The kids love this poem and acting it out.

I used foam glitter trees also from Target for the 5 trees poem.

We made santas and stockings. There are 2 stockings laced together.

The other ECSE class made these fun reindeer.
Heading back to work was definitely more challenging than I anticipated! Trying to balance work,spending as much time with Ethan and just getting ready for the holidays has made the last few weeks insanely busy and exhausting! It has been good to see my little ones at school though! I did miss them and missed being at work some. We made a parent gift today. We decorated frosting lids. I cut a hole at the top and put some string through to be able to hang it and I am currently uploading my kids pictures and will put that on the other side of the frosting lid. I will add a picture of the completed ornament tomorrow. I need to get the pics developed. I also created a playdough mat that we will be using at the holiday party this coming Wednesday. We are also going to be making some reindeer chow at the party. I will have to make some adjustments to it as I need to watch out for peanut allergies. I am definitely looking forward to break beginning at the end of next week!
