December... Author Jan Brett

This month we are doing an author study on Jan Brett.  To introduce this awesome author and illustrator to my class my 4th grade buddy teacher and I set up a fun Christmas craft from Deanna Jumps Christmas Math and Literacy Fun unit on TPT. The kids had a great time and some of my most missed students got to spend time with me!  Isn't it funny how technically some kids are your students for a year but really your students for more?  I feel like every year I had a harder time saying good-bye to MY kids! 

 Buddy fun! 
 I swear even the boys love it! 
 How handsome is this little guy?!

 Our 4th grade buddies take their responsibilities so seriously and do such a great job!  

The Mailbox has some good activities for The Mitten that helped us review sequence and retelling.  Next week we are reading the Gingerbread Baby and Gingerbread Baby and Friends, thus we made gingerbread babies today.  We are also going to read as many Jan Brett books as we can.  All the while reviewing for our unit test!
