In an effort to plan ahead and save some valuable time, which is MUCH needed during the month of December, I’ve decided to link up with the Inspired Owl, Pawsitively Teaching, and a group of bloggy buddies to bring you some top Pinterest finds for this month. For the past few weeks, my students and I have been learning all about different points of view. We’ve also discussed how stories might change if told from the point of view of a different character. I think the students are NOW ready for a FUN point of view writing activity. That’s where Pinterest find #1 comes into play… I’m going to have my students create snowman pictures using SHAVING CREAM, GLUE, GLITTER, and construction paper. Then I’m going to have them write a short story from the Snowman’s point of view. Next up, my students have been driving me C-R-A-Z-Y asking me if we can get an elf for the class. The only problem is that they are not allowed in our school. But, then I came across Pin #2…
Do it yourself elves… we’re not really breaking the Elf rule… right? Aren’t they simply adorable? I’m thinking about using them on a bulletin board display. I’m going to place a thumb tack inside of the cup to attach it to the board. I think it’s a great solution to my elf dilemma… Don’t you think so? Lastly, I always like to try to find a fun activity for our Winter Party and I think I have the PERFECT ACTIVITY. Especially, since we live in Florida and many of my students have never seen or experienced snow… Pin #3
snow to them…
All I need to make snow is to pay a visit to the Dollar Tree and get some baking soda, large baking pans for each table, and white hair conditioner. This is definitely going to be a Winter Party my students will never forget! I can’t wait!!!! I hope I’ve given you some inspiration for December and perhaps even saved you some valuable time! Remember to take a look at the other Pinterest finds from my friends below.

I love your pins! The kids would love to make both of the crafts, and they would look so cute hanging up in class. Who knew Solo cups could be used for an art project?! Thank you so much for lining up!
