Classroom Christmas Capers



Hello Blog Buddies!

I hope you are all feeling the Christmas spirit? We have been getting ready for the end of year celebrations in our classroom. The classroom Christmas Tree is now up, as is the advent calendar.




The students spent a lovely morning making decorations that look far better than store bought ones....



.....and the presents for my kiddies are all wrapped and labelled (thank you S and K!) so the year can officially start to 'wind down'. My students are also looking forward to 'their day' on the Christmas Calendar Countdown.


Since the first of December, every day one student opens a 'Christmas draw" Inside, there is a star with a simple Christmas related puzzle, question or task to complete. (e.g. Please sing 'Jingle Bells' whilst hopping up and down on one foot..... List 8 items that can be found on a Christmas tree etc...) If the student completes the task, puzzle or question correctly, they may then keep the treat located in the draw.


This is usually a chocolate coin or chocolate Santa....FUN!


I also like to stem the tide of 'lost and abandoned' Christmas cards, by encouraging the class to make their own, individual 'card keeper'.


Each child simply writes their name on a card.....


 ..and then staples it to a strip of paper or ribbon, hanging down and around the classroom.


Any cards presented to them are then 'added' to their tree with a stapler. The result is no lost cards on the floor, children who have taken the time to write the cards feel valued and the classroom is decorated with Christmas color. On the final day of school, the ribbon is simply cut down and the children can carry all their cards home easily with them all in one place.... Joy to the World!


What do you do in your classroom during the Christmas season?
