Christmas in the Classroom // For the Love of Learning

Christmas in the Classroom // For the Love of Learning
For our last For the Love of Learning Jess and I are sharing what Christmas looks like in our classrooms! This has been such a fun collaboration! I know Jess and I have both enjoyed showing off our classes and sharing fun Preschool projects with you. So lets jump right in:
Christmas in the Classroom // For the Love of Learning
Art Gallery Board:
Our school Director sent home Christmas tree printables as "homework" for the families to decorate together. I love how different they all are. My students cut out paper strips for me (a great fine motor activity) to make into this paper chain.

 Parent Board:
I had to brush up on my snowflake cutting skills but they turned out cute enough haha.

Crafts:
The children painted Christmas trees and decorated them using glue and collage materials.

Trees:
Alphabet tree- I made this using a circle punch for the "ornaments" and then traced 26 circles on the butcher paper tree shape. Both circles have upper and lowercase letters.

Felt tree- I made the felt tree a couple of years ago for Brielana and the ornaments even longer than that as they were from Kinsey's first Christmas.

Books (not pictured):
Always my favorite. I wrapped 10, one for each student, and had a different kid unwrap a book the first two weeks of December as a take off of our Book Advent calendar. They LOVED it. Its always the little things.

Parent gifts:
I've had these gingerbread frame kits for a couple of years from Oriental Trading Company. Such a cute make-for-parents gift. They all look different! That makes me smile.

I went the easy route and kept our half pint milk cartons and affixed graham crackers to it with frosting. We had a lot of fun with this! And wouldn't you know I forgot to take a picture of the finished houses.

  1. Oh I just love December in your classroom! So, way back when I was in 1st grade, my teacher sent home a huge turkey cutout for Thanksgiving & a huge Christmas tree cutout for Christmas. We decorated each with our families & my Mom STILL puts them up each season! I'll have to text you a picture when I'm there later this week. :) I never thought of that idea for a gingerbread house. Clever!
