We've Been Grinched
It been a while...sorry about that. We have been having so much fun in first grade this year that we have been too busy (a.k.a. Exhausted) to blog. Since our last post was in the fall we thought we should at least get a Christmas post in BEFORE Christmas. So here it goes...
On one of our many adventures through Pinterest-land we came across a photo that blew our mind and inspired us to go Christmas crazy. It was a photo of an Elf on the Shelf who had tied up a Grinch stuffed toy. So fun! So we decided to go all out and had our stuffed Grinches wreak green havoc on our classrooms. He even taped the Elves to the wall so that they could not escape! When the students came into the classroom it was like an explosion of excitement and panic (Our poor elves!). We took action right away and wrote top secret letters to Santa letting him know that the Grinch had been very naughty in our classrooms! Of course we made sure to say how smart and wonderful the Grinch was out loud so that he would not suspect that we were tattling on him. The Grinch also left us some really fun outfits to wear in his honor..AKA gave us a really great excuse to dress up!!! We followed up the next day by having our elves tie up the grinch and then finally on the last day of school before break they were both sitting together reading a story about the true meaning of Christmas (magically throughout the day the pages even kept turning). We know that this post is BEYOND late, but we wrote it and never posted!! Oops!!!!
Keep on Dancing in Your Teacher Shoes!
