This is Mrs. H....my daughter Angie. She is showing everyone a gift someone brought her.
The children always recite , "Twas the Night Before Christmas." Each child gets a line or two. They do well too.
MY granddaughter , Sierra (in white), and the office secretary watched the children recite.
This year Angie had a senior girl as an assistant, some days. This is actually how Angie became interested in teaching, by assisting when she was a senior in H.S.
Here is the class in a circle playing the book game. Their number is called, they choose a book or steal one that is already unwrapped. The book can only be stolen twice. Some cheer and some grumble. I told them they could regift the book to their parents. LOL
These were the rules for the day... 1 get organized, 2Work on packets , 3 Remember your manners. :):)
Once the children had food, played their game helped Mrs. H . with her gifts, which is things the children bring her...some so serious, some hand made , cute funny...you name it and all kids loved it and were kind. This is how the room looked as the children filed out to go to gym class.
This is left overs...haha donuts fruit and more sweets under the foil. They did have bacon and eggs with milk and juice. I know none of them went home hungry. Plus teacher gives them bags of candy, art pens, and toys.
As I was leaving school, I admired the children's art work. It's always on the walls of the hall. This is looking in a window and seeing Christmas trees. Very nice and worth keeping.
Younger grades show the ornaments on their trees.
There were Santa heads with letters to Santa written on them. They are writing in cursive, so it has to be a third grader or older, right? This letter's writer is telling how nice they have been and they only want a few things...Gucci clothes, Nintendo and Chicago Bears clothes, then adds how extra good they will be this year. LOL Gucci clothes?? wow.
On the same wall. "Dear Santa, I really want new shoes and new shoes. And my little brother wants Paw patrol stuff........I am not sure why, but this letter made me tear up...to think some kid wants new shoes, plus asked for something for their brother. New shoes...Gucci clothes. What a difference in lists. I know it's kids and they do say the darndest things, but it makes you think.
Wishing all of you safe happy days ahead. Only five more till Christmas . :):)
