Last Day of School Before Winter Break


Last day before winter break- Pajama Party and Polar Express- move all the desks and watch the movie on the last day of school

My Suggestions:
-Pajamas
-1/2 Day of Hands On Educational Fun
-1/2 Day of Polar Express

The last day before our Christmas break, my students participated in centers. We did the Literacy centers on Monday with the recording sheets, then the Math centers on Tuesday with the recording sheets, then on Wednesday, we did all ten centers without any recording sheets!
This was just a fun, relaxed time where they worked together to "play", but learn at the same time to keep the last day educational.
We pushed all the desks out of the way and did centers on the floor all morning.
