At this time of year, kids are extremely excited about Christmas. Of course, it’s next to impossible to to anything academically in the last week before the holidays. So, we played word games, sang songs, and read stories.
My challenge, since I teach almost all students in the school, is to have a little something for them on the last day. I’m not a fan of giving sugar to kids, but the only thing I could come up with (and afford) were candy canes. Of course, they all loved having them, but I’d like to plan something for next year or the end of this year. What though?
Something hand-made would be ideal, but it would have to be extremely simple, since I’d have almost 100 to do. I’m thinking painted bookmarks with their name on it.
Any suggestions are welcome.
