All the kiddos came in their pajamas!
We started off the morning by handing out Magic Polar Express Tickets. Now of course the tickets had to be earned so each child was given a letter. They then had to tell me the sound and name of the letter! They did great and were so excited to hold their magical ticket that I got as a FREEBIE on TPT from Mrs Jones' Creation Station.
Next we turned our tables and chairs into a train and set the mood by turning off all the lights except our class Christmas Tree.
Each child then made their own jingle bell necklace that only those who truly believe can hear!
I Love how the garland hangs straight down to the floor! Will I change it once they go home? NO WAY!
They worked so hard to make it this beautiful and I am way proud of them!
I started by asking the kids which kind of popcorn they liked best…I held up some un-popped microwave popcorn and some regular popcorn kernels. I showed them the microwave and the hot air popper. We then had them vote on which kind they liked best. We recorded it on our graph. I also put a colored mark on their hand so they could remember which one they voted for J! Most of the each class voted for microwave popcorn at first! Except the class that I actually opened up the microwave popcorn bag first to show what was inside! (Yuck! They did not think in would be good with all the yellow stuff with it.)
We then settled down by reading/listening to Pete the Cat Saves Christmas! We discussed was we could "GIVE IT YOUR ALL" for our Moms this Christmas! They came up with fabulous service ideas! YAY!
