Today we made one of our parent gifts—the sock snowman! My class totally thought I was running a build a bear factory right in our room!

|We read Merry Christmas Splat the Cat. We LOVED the part where his little sister looks at him sarcastically and says REALLY?????? I think they may have heard that from me before…just maybe. We died laughing. Ok I died laughing. Then they did too.|
|I modeled how to trace and assemble Splat from all the templates and then I set them free to work and they were so into it!|
|Because they were so big we set them out in the hall under our bulletin board. We got LOADS of compliments from the passersby!!! It became our little thrill of the day. A few teachers begged for the templates because their classes went nuts when they saw Splat. Two classes are making him tomorrow! That’s exciting!
If you want Splat and a few other of my December projects click here to get it at TPT.
And as one of my students said today….This is just so darn cute Mrs. Tunstall….
I wish every week could be full of art and Christmas cheer!!!!
Jenn at Finally in First and Jessica at My World Made by Hand are both having Christmas Gift Linky Parties and I am linking up to share ideas and hopefully get a couple more for next year! See you there!!!
