The one comment then sparked a conversation with lots of “What if” questions. What if a bad guy knocks on our door? What if a bad guy comes in our window (side note: my classroom window is at least 5 feet off the ground)? What if a bad guy steals Fifi (the Elf on the Shelf we adopted.)? My dad just got out of jail. I have to be safe. If a bad guy breaks into my house I hope he doesn’t take my ducks. I’ve been collecting them forever.
Me: You guys are my first priority at school. I will do whatever I have to so that you are safe.
Kid: What if a bad guy comes in our room???
Me: If a bad guy comes in, I will tell them to steal me and leave you all here.
Kid: They can’t take you. We would miss you.
Kid: Yeah. We love you.
Kid: I would kill them if they took you.
Kid: There are lots of us and only one bad guy. We could all beat him up. (I think, good in theory but you are 5 and 6 years old. Good luck with that one.)
Day 79- It’s CHRISTMAS BREAK!!! I made it through my first kindergarten Christmas party! AND, it went surprising well! We had Polar Express pajama day and a very relaxed day. My kids had a long specials time, meaning our specials teachers took the whole school in the morning since the afternoon would be filled with Christmas caroling and party time. After that we went outside, had lunch and then came in to watch Polar Express. The kids were excited because they got to lay down wherever they wanted and with their stuffed animal friends they brought to school. After about an hour of the movie they started getting restless so we began packing our bags to go home. Before I knew it, it was 1:30 and time for Christmas caroling. We sang carols until 2:15 and then returned to our class to get ready to for the party.

When we returned, I found out that one of my students will be moving. I heard speculation from the older sibling's teacher but we had heard before that they were moving and it didn't happen. I am very sad my crazy story teller will not be returning. Now that I think about it, maybe that is why he was acting so crazy the last couple days. Hmmmm.
At the last minute (the night before), I decided we would do a little edible project for our party. Ice cream cone Christmas trees. Only one tree ended up on the floor but it didn’t even leave a mess. Here are some pictures of this event.
It took everything he had not to wipe his hands on his shirt every second. Who knows how many times I told him not to.
He put all of his ingredients IN the cone and enjoyed eating it too!
A finished product!
He put EVERYTHING he had onto his tree! When he took a bite off the top, a parent said, "Ugh. I can't even watch that." It was so much frosting!
This is mine. I made it at home and decided it is what I am giving all those people that tell me they want nothing for Christmas. I expect to see it displayed in a prominent place at your home or office (Hubby) throughout the year. Maybe next year, you will give me an idea for a gift. :)
