Before I kick off this MMI, I want to take a second to share. It was almost one year ago that there was a terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook. I know how I felt after hearing about it and can't begin to imagine the sadness and loss felt throughout that community. As the one year anniversary draws near, the people of Sandy Hook have asked that people commit random acts of kindness to honor the precious lives lost. As a teacher, you have to opportunity to change lives on a daily basis. Please take this opportunity to make random acts of kindness part of your week, if not life:)
As far as MMI goes, I feel like this should be called my "Monday things I'm Gonna Make!" I have made several things but have lots more to make to prepare for my kiddos on their last few days of school before Christmas break. Here are a couple of the things I am gonna make (but haven't because it's too early)
Last year we had a "snow day" in our classroom right before break. So far, I am planning on doing that again this year. Here are 2 of the things I will be making. (wanted to share them in case anyone else wanted to do them and needed to plan)
Snow Playdoh:) The kids LOVED this last year and it was kinda fun to make:) The recipe is HERE.
This "gonna make" is "Snowman in a Bag". Fun snack to go along with our snow theme:) There are links to the recipe and the tags to put on the bags HERE.
So, those are my gonna makes;)
Next up, I have been a printing and laminating machine this past weekend!!!
First up is the fab game Elves and Deer from the super fab Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade! My kids absolutely LOVE this game:)
Farley also has adorable, free RACK (Random Acts of Christmas Kindness) cards that you can print and use. I printed up some to use for myself and with my class this week as we remember Sandy Hook and commit RAK:)
My next MMI is a fun game I got from the sweeties at Collaboration Cuties!
Can't wait for my kiddos to use this fun game to practice those math facts that are killing me this year!!!
I also finally printed and laminated my Snowball Smack game. (it always takes me forever!)
To start off the week of RAKs I would like to make this item and my Be Merry Banner
(the y is there I promise....just got cut off in the pic)
FREEBIES till midnight Monday!!!!!
I hope one or both are something you can use in your classroom.
As the 1 year date draws near, please keep the families and community in your thoughts and prayers and please spread some love and sunshine by putting RAK into practice:)
