Today was our last Class Day before Christmas. Since we finished Charlotte's Web in our Living Books 1-3 class I read some Christmas books to the kids. We enjoyed How the Grinch Stole Christmas, a Charlie Brown Christmas, the Christmas Kitten, Silent Night-Holy Night, and a story from a 1952 book.
In our games class we had all the kids sit at tables according to their grades and we played Brain Quest. They were asked questions according to their grade level and the first graders won! We passed out cookies and chex mix to add to the fun.
In our third class which is Living Books 4-6 (14 boys) we read How the Grinch Stole Christmas and read more of My Side of the Mountain. As long as the boys have suckers in their mouths and crayons/markers in their hands all is well. They'll sit and listen for 50-60 minutes. It's quite amazing. They look forward to this book. I need to come up with one that is as good or better for the next one!
We made it home with the cookies from John & Addis' cookie exchange. I've had my hot tea and two of the cookies we made yesterday which were quite scrumptious by the way. They were made from a brownie mix, with cream cheese and some other goodies, then a ball of peanut butter mixed with powdered sugar is placed in the middle of the cookie and then after it's baked you frost it with chocolate frosting. Oh.My.Lanta. They are delightful!!!!!
Well I better go and pick up my Cubbie and Class day mess............
