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:
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.
The children painted Christmas trees and decorated them using glue and collage materials.
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.
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.
And some more little touches:
Bells at the science area just because :)
Christmas card display:
Thank you for taking the class tour and Merry Christmas from Room 12 to you!
