Thankful for my kiddos!

I was so happy to see my kiddos this morning.  They walked in all smiling and happy.....thankfully oblivious to all of the pain and heartache happening in the world around them.  Bless their little hearts!!!

Today was a good day.  

I gave my kids a few more hugs today.  I gave a few more chances.  I listened to a few more stories.  I let them ask a few more questions.  I let them linger at my desk for a few extra minutes.   I really tried to enjoy every second with them, not taking anything for granted.  It was a good day and I am thankful for my kids.  

Our afternoon was all FUN.  We made silly Santa faces!  
I'm pretty sure we didn't cover a single Common Core standard.  LOL  


First, did our best to cut out circles for faces...and triangles for hats!  Wait...maybe we did hit on a standard or two!!


Next we drew 
Santa's eyes, nose, and mouth.  

Then, we started adding the cotton to trim Santa's hat and beard!


Take a look at how cute they turned out!!  




I hope you and your students had a good day too!
