Christmas in the Classroom

We have been so busy this week!  We started our trip around the world to find out how countries celebrate Christmas.  My firsties are loving it.  The question of the day:  "Where are we going today????"  Love it!!!  So far we haven't journeyed too far from home.  We have made stops in America and Mexico.  This upcoming week we will visit Israel, Italy and Sweden.  They can't wait.  We are making a scrapbook so we can remember our trip.  Here is a picture of our page for America. 
Our covers are suitcases and we get a flag stamp for each country that we visit.  I found the scrapbook pages HERE.  I love these pages.  My firsties draw the country's flag, create something they might see ( for this page we drew Rudolph), draw a pic of something they might eat, and write about a holiday tradition. 

We are also having a great time with our book study on There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell.  In the picture above they cut out and glued -ed words inside her mouth.  Tomorrow we have a craftivity waiting on us!  They love these books.  You can get a copy of the book study HERE  or  HERE.

Finally,  HERE is a free copy of the amazing words for the story, Honey Bees. Enjoy your week and your firsties!!
