Last week it snowed for the first time during the school day and I went crazy. If you don’t know by now… snow comes in 2nd place for things that make me giddy (Xmas is first). The kiddies and I danced and tra-la-la-d all over the classroom, turned out the lights, listened to Christmas jams, and made decorations for the door decorating contest in the school. I also might have shown them my “Let it Snow” dance that totally works (I mean we got a blizzard here in MD last Feb and all).
I told my students that Santa and I are BFF.
Not only is he always watching, but I have his head Elf on speed dial. My brilliant idea totally works – and my kiddos aren’t running around the classroom like mad in lieu of the almost here bestest day of the year.
