Five for Friday...I promise!

If I start the Five-fer on Tuesday and it actually gets posted on Friday does it still count as a Five for Friday?!  I'm not sure but I'm going for it!  You can do those kinds of things when it's Thanksgiving Break Babeeee!!!!  And you know that Thanksgiving break means only 3 short weeks to Christmas Break Babeeeee!!!

So here we go!

Super excited about changing out practical life and adding to a few other areas with a little Christmas Montessoriesque style.  I poked around Pinterest until I found a bunch of lessons that I really liked and I know the kids will be thrilled when they come into class on Monday.  These are some of my favorites!
Super cute emergent readers!
Cool sensory play ideas.

Love this idea and the kids are going to go wild over it!  All of the materials cost about $5!

And then a bunch of great Montessori inspired lessons!

I can't wait for the kids to see the room on Monday!
Check out my Pinterest Montessori:  Christmas Inspired page and you will find links to all of the above and lots of other great ideas!

 In past years I have always had a very diverse classroom religion wise.  I have been lucky enough to have Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and Christian families so we have done Christmas around the world for many years so that we can learn about one another's customs and traditions.  This year, my entire classroom celebrates Christmas so I have decided to go heavy on that for a change.  We will be doing a family project that lets the kids share their family cooking traditions with the class and we will turn those into a class book.  This is what I am sending home.  

You can find it in my TpT shop starting Monday for 20% off!
 Meet Lila!  Our newest classroom pet!

A neighbor put her on Facebook after his 13 year old daughter was no longer an "engaged and responsible pet owner" and wanted to give her a way to a classroom!  I jumped at the chance!  She is a lot of maintenance but she is really sweet natured and the kids are going to go crazy when I bring her in on Monday.
This happened today and it was even free!  If you haven't ever been the recipient of a Chic-fil-a calendar ask for one!  Every month you get a freebie and it is really worth it!

I do love a Chic-fil-a peppermint milkshake!

Then there is this!  

Oh my mercy!  Have you seen it?  Have you tried it?  OH MY HECK!!!  It is soooo good!  If you are a root beer lover you will be shocked at how much it tastes like root beer.  Be careful though.  5.9% alcohol is a lot for a beer!  Try it!  You'll like it!

Hope you had an outstanding Thanksgiving and are enjoying a little more peace before school gets back!

  1. Your class is going to have so much fun with all that you have planned! And a new class pet?? You're about to be the coolest teacher ever. Have a fun December

    1. Thanks Leslie! I always feel like if I pack December we will all survive! So far so good! :)

  2. Love your new pet! I've never seriously considered getting a class pet, and now I'm pretty sure we aren't allowed to have them. Your new work tray with the Christmasy objects looks like a lot of fun. The kids will be thrilled.
    Laughter and Consistency

    1. Class pets are the best! My snake has always been the easiest. Lila the lizard is a little high maintenance but she is sweet!

  3. I've heard that Not Your Father's Root Beer is good...I think one of those might put me on the floor, though!

    1. Tasty but too sweet to drink too many and this is from a big sweet tooth! :)
