It was so wonderful to have guests come talk with our class about different holidays from around the world!
Mr. and Mrs. Bigares came in to speak with us about Christmas in Portugal!
Diana decorated our classroom and told us all about German Christmas!
Carole showed us pictures from France and described French Christmas to us!
Ms. Ruth taught us all about Hanukkah!
It's always fun to work with adjectives. Last night I made some cookies for the 2nd graders, and decided to turn it into an adjective activity. First, students could only look at their cookie, then write down the adjectives they see. Second, they could touch the cookie, third, smell it, and last but not least, taste! We talked about the adjective we saw, felt, smelt and tasted. Many students liked the cookies and asked for the recipe, and guess what parents, there are fruits AND vegetables in it!
Banana Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 overripe mashed banana
cooked pumpkin added to banana to make 1 cup
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup raisins
1 cups chopped walnuts (optional)
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg, banana, pumpkin, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and oats. Stir to combine. Add dry ingredients to the wet, and mix well. Add the walnuts and stir to distribute.
While you can bake these cookies the same day, it’s better after being refrigerated overnight, which hydrates the oats.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Use a small disher or two teaspoons to drop the dough onto cookie greased or parchment-lines cookie sheets.

Sometimes our creative juices just aren't flowing as we would like them to. Today was one of those days! So instead of doing our daily journal writing, I gave each "peanut butter and jelly match up partners" a set of 6 picture cards, and they created oral stories. Needless to say, these stories were incredibly creative and hilarious!
