Pajamas and the Polar Express

Today everyone wore their pajamas to school so they could "take a ride" on THE POLAR EXPRESS!!  This morning after doing a little work, we moved all the furniture in our classroom.  With the furniture moved, we had space to get the rest mats, grab a spot on the floor, and watch the movie!!  Dr. Cooper, our assistant principal came by our classroom and served hot chocolate and cookies to the children.  And it just so happened that she came while the children in the movie were being served hot chocolate.

Here we are all settled in watching the movie and enjoying our treats.

Candy House!!!!

Today we made some great memories for the children and I hope some parents.  We made candy houses.  We made the house out of 2 half gallon milk cartons that were taped together and hot glued to  a Styrofoam base.
The houses were covered with white frosting.  Watching the children spread the frosting on the cartons was a hoot!!  They used Popsicle sticks to spread the frosting, so needless to say, it took a while.  And then all the fun began.  We had all kinds of wonderful candy for the decorations on the houses.  It is so interesting to watch children create and decorate.  Some really have a sense of style.  Take a look at these wonderful creations!

Thank you oh so much for helping us make these masterpieces.  I never could have done it without all of your great help!!  I appreciate all the supplies you sent in to make the houses.  And I especially appreciate the time you spent with us in our classroom today.
