'Twas the week before Christmas...

'Twas the week before Christmas,
And all through the halls,
The students (and their teacher),
Were bouncing off the walls!

To keep the kids focused, 
To keep them engaged, 
Loads of fun things were planned,
For the last 5 days!

Each day of the week,
Many staff came to read,
From Mrs. Barnes to Mr. Marshall,
What more could we need?

We did several art projects,
First we painted our clay,
Then we used our hand print,
As a manger with hay!

We still did our reading,
For math we had time,
These kids really do love writing,
A favourite pastime!

Cozy in pajamas,
We shopped the Bring & Buy Sale,
What could be in these bags?
We're not telling that tale!

Who knew The Grinch
Was first written as a book?
We did a creative writing task,
Then gave the movie a look!

Then meteorologist Jesse Beyer,
Came from Global TV,
We learned about seasonal changes,
Now we're camera ready!

Then we buckled our helmets,
And laced up our skates,
We zoomed 'round the rink,
Up went our heart rates!

The week reached it's end,
And the holiday drew near,
Merry Christmas to all!
See you in the New Year!

  1. Awwwhhh! Love it!! This mom is bouncing off the wall too! Thank Heaven that the next time a full moon lands on Christmas, it will be 2034!!! Kept my eyes closed while scrolling over the painting! lol

    1. It was such a fun week! I suppose I let the cat out of the "gift bag", so to speak, by showing the painting projects! Whoops!
