Polar Express, Gingerbread Houses, and January Fun

The last week of school was so much fun.  We did our traditional dress up in pj's on Friday to watch our Polar Express movie.  The kids of course loved their hot chocolate.  They decorated a gingerbread boy/girl with icing and TONS of sprinkles.  So, they voted as a class to take their donuts home and enjoy them for a late night snack or breakfast in the morning.

When we return from break our Math focus will be measurement.  We are going to review counting and cardinality, too.  We are working hard on writing our numbers correctly to 20 when counting objects at random.  
The second week in January is when we will be presenting our Math Data Binder and Math Journal items at the Kindergarten Conference in Ohio.  We will be sharing how to make sure you are covering the common core standards, how to assess them, and how to show growth for each student. 
We will be starting our January Math Journal as soon as we go back to school on January 6.  Check it out on our TPT store:  January Math Journal.  It is so easy, NO ink, just place it into the copier and you are ready to go for the entire month.
My daughter and I made some fun things with my silhouette and cricut prior to Christmas.  We are from Ohio, so most of it is GO BUCKS stuff.  
Later this week I will be wrapping up some school things with my silhouette and cricut that I will also share.  Our 100th day is not that far away along with all of the fun January themes!!
Yard sign to use after winter is gone~

Etched plate with OSU and Buckeys on the plate.

Coffee/Hot chocolate mug with Findlay and Trojans etched on it.  Our school is called Findlay Trojans.  Think I might do these for my class next year with a Christmas twist.  Mugs are cheap at Dollar Tree and serve it with the Polar Express!
