Today Leah was my teacher helper. She gave each girl a cup of Christmas M&Ms. The girls then tried to form 1 or 2 words with the M&Ms. Of course, they were quite anxious to enjoy the delicious little chocolate bites, so while some munched and some finished up forming their words, Leah did a quick blend review with the girls.

Stephen was my teacher helper today. Honestly, I didn't plan for the game to alliterate so well with his name! I gave Stephen cards numbered 1-50, and he created "stepping stones" throughout the hallway and one of the other classrooms. The girls had to follow the "stones" in the correct numerical order. They did it all together the first round, but then they each had their separate turn.

|Following the yellow brick road...errr...number cards!|
|They counted out loud as they followed the stepping "stones". Of course they wanted to see how quickly they could get through all the numbers!|
This week we have been busy getting the classroom decorated for Christmas!
On Monday the girls painted Christmas trees....
On Wednesday the girls painted the ornaments for the trees...
Today the girls glued the ornaments on their trees!
The finished products!

Tonight my girls were a part of our school's Christmas program. They had a few "solo" parts, and then they joined the Elementary students for the last song. It was a great way to start off the Christmas season!

|My little sheep singing "While Shepherds Watched" & quoting the poem "If I Were a Shepherd"|

Abbi was my teacher helper during Numbers class today. The 70 family was being introduced, so Abbi wrote 70-79 on paper, and the girls used their do-a-dot paint to trace over all the numbers. They then arranged the numbers in the correct order on the floor. Abbi mixed them up one more time, but the girls still did great putting them back in the correct order!
