All around the world!

Hi friends!

It's been *that* kind of a week around my house- sick kids, doctor visits and fighting germs from school! On top of that, my email got hacked- I'm so sorry if you received an email from me about being mugged- I PROMISE I did not leave the U.S. nor did I get mugged and need money from you. Oh, and when I was putting away groceries today I dropped a bottle of olive oil and it broke ALL. over. the. floor. Do you know how hard it is to clean up a bottle of olive oil off of tile?! Thank goodness it wasn't on the carpet! Boy would that have been a mess!

Anyway... notice I have a new email address. I tried recovering my email account, but it seems its too far gone. (sad face!) My NEW email address is rowdyinroom300@gmail.com if you need to contact me (Jill!!)

We're starting a Christmas around the World unit for the next two weeks and I am SO SO excited to teach this!! Our social studies curriculum this six weeks is a few weeks short of going all the way through so we're expanding upon celebrations (what we have been focusing on) and relating it to what's coming up! I'm using a few awesome resources from fellow blogging buddies to do this! {click on the pictures to visit!}



We're making the suitcase freebie from Erica and will stuff their suitcase with writing activities, crafts, and all sorts of goodies that we learn! 

"America" won't be until very last because we're celebrating on one of our last half days with a Polar Express party. I always make these little trees with my kids to decorate for our Christmas party and they will be perfect to incorporate into our Social Studies lesson! They're fun because they're 3D and I let my kids go to town using glitter, stickers, and markers to decorate them as they please!
