It is so fun to get to spend most of December with kids who are excited about Christmas, well most days it is fun. Some days they are a little too excited for Christmas and then teaching becomes a slightly difficult task.
This week we have been writing about what we would do if Santa got stuck in or chimney. I am so proud of my students! They have om up with some great stories! I wanted to share some of them with you - just stop reading if you get bored : )
On a dark Christmas night, I saw a crumb on the floor. I thought cookie crumbs, maybe my brother got hungry so he ate Santa's cookies again. A trail of crumbs, i followed the cookie crumb trail. Santa was eating cookies stuck in my chimney. I turned on my fire place. Santa burst out of my chimney, but he fell right back in my chimney. I said "Santa, do you wear jeans?" Santa stayed quiet. I put very cold water in my water gun I found under my Christmas tree that Santa gave me. I shot the water to Santa, but that just made him madder. Santa said "are you on the naughty list?" I said "I don't know am I?" Santa said "help me" I said "why did you come here in the first place, a elf can fit through my chimney". Santa whispered "yep he's on the naughty list." I got a smile on y face. I tied a sewing string onto Rudolph the ed nosed reindeer and tied the other end onto Santa's big black boot. Rudolph the red nose reindeer yanked. Santa popped out of my chimney. I yelled out "merry Christmas Santa Clause." The sewing string ripped, Santa fell into my neighbors house and got stuck. Santa said "not again!"
I couldn't believe m eyes Santa was stuck in my chimney. I climbed to the roof and took apart the chimney and while he was getting out I was riding reindeer. And they took me for a ride around town and when we came back Santa was gone and we went inside and he was eatig all the cookies. I went back to bed and the next day it was Christmas and mom and dad said where is our chimney and I said it's a long story and I went to the Christmas tree and I saw Santa behind the tree and he said Ho Ho Ho. Mom and dad said what was that? I said nothing and he gave me a football and a nintendo dsi and a big tv and I went outside and made a snow santa.
I did fix some spelling as I was typing these, but aren't these great!!!
Some more Christmas fun! I had the kids write letters to Santa during centers last week, some of them were really cute:
How are you doing? I am glad that you are alive. Also why do you leave presents under my Christmas tree? Also why do you go ho ho ho? Also have a rilly splended Christmas. Also how old are you? Have a good Christmas.
P.S. You are cool
