I’m on Winter Break ya’ll! 🙂
It’s been a long week for me, but…I made it! 🙂
I’m excited to be sharing about a couple of the crafts I did for the holiday.
Ashley over at Just Reed is hosting a linky about crafts, so, I figured I’d share there too! 🙂 Thanks for including us Ash!
I am sure that you’ve seen the reindeer craft before. I found that on Pinterest. 🙂

We made fun winter placemats for our yearly holiday show! I use this activity to introduce the kids to measuring with non-standard units. We used unifix cubes to measure the three snowmen and the tree. The students were able to add other things to it that they liked. I graded it on a rubric! Great way to get an extra math grade while the kids are having fun! 🙂
The last craft that I did was one I came up with on my own! 🙂 I love to look at drawings that my kids make! If I like it…I figure that parents like it too! 🙂
I made a calendar with space for my kids to draw a picture for each month. They came out pretty cool! 🙂
The drawings were so much fun to look through! 🙂 I’ve got some pretty talented artists!
I didn’t have the kind of spiral binding that had a built in hook for hanging. So, I got creative. I used cardstock and built a tent behind each calendar. I laminated the cover for durability and VOILA! 🙂
We have calendar!!
The beauty of this type of calendar is that it works for even your students who don’t celebrate holidays or birthdays! There are no shamrocks or Christmas trees…no birthday cupcakes or conversation hearts. The kids can make each image fit what they want! This year, all of my kids celebrate holidays, but one of my teammates that I plan with has a student that doesn’t celebrate.
Here were some of the ideas we came up with to help her complete her calendar.
I hope that some of these ideas might be helpful to you as well! 🙂
