More Grinch Day Fun

So, here are the life size Grinches we made. I got the patterns from the Glyph Girls on TPT. You'll need to check them out if you haven't already. They have glyphs for all occasions. We didn't really do the project as a glyph, I had the kiddies follow me one step at a time and they turned out so cute! I have them hanging in the hallway along with our pin the heart on the Grinch. We also completed this anchor chart about the Grinch which I saw on First Grade Parade (told you she has some awesome ideas). What a fun day we had!

Grinch Day!

What a day! We had a blast. Our kids were so excited about coming to school all decked out in their green. The kids were a riot. I loved the ones who came with the green hair. We have 6 classrooms on our floor so we rotated kids every 20 minutes. They loved going to someone else's classroom. Each room had a different project. I had the kids pin the heart on the Grinch and then we made these cute little Grinches. They were the perfect size. Tomorrow I'll post more pics of our projects I was just too exhausted to stay and take pictures. Oh, and by the way we also had our faculty Christmas dinner after a faculty meeting today. Now I'm ready to collapse. I will give Cara over at First Grade Parade and Mrs. Jump a ton of credit for all the awesome Grinch ideas. Thanks for sharing.  Have a great day tomorrow.

I know, it's not fire prevention month. Our reading story was called Firefighters. I found this project on Pinterest and had to do it. First we made an anchor chart of all the things firefighters do. Then the kids had to write three or more sentences about what they learned about firefighters. They turned our really cute. So now on more Christmas. Our Christmas program for the parents is tomorrow night. We've been practicing like crazy so not much teaching going on these days. Anyway, have a great week!
