It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

My room is finally {somewhat} decorated for Christmas!
So I am linking up with Step Into Second Grade with Mrs. Lemons
for her fun Deck the Classroom link-up.

I don't do much, but I do put up Christmas bulletin boards, and this year I put Christmas lights around my white board.  It looks so pretty.  In fact, today the kids talked me into letting them work with the overhead lights off for part of the morning!  Anyway, I wanted to show you some pictures of my festive room.

I snapped some pictures of several of the other elementary classrooms too.
They look even better than mine!

The younger students drew Christmas pictures to hang up.
Don't you love all the ornaments the kids made for this tree?
My favorite board for sure is my large bulletin board.  I started with just a caption and some blank pieces of construction paper.

Each of the students then worked through the steps of my Christmas Tree Shape Poem Project.  They were able to do most of the work on their own, and the poems came out great!

 Then I hung the finished poems on the construction paper displays.  The kids were excited to read their friends' shape poems once they were posted.  If you want to read the students' poems, I put close ups on my facebook page.  {I love the way the finished board looks.}

{I'm saving some of the spots for the sense poems we are working on next.}


  1. I love Christmas lights in the classroom... they just make me so happy! Your bulletin boards look wonderful!

    Merry Christmas,

    Learning with Lizz R.

  2. We aren't really supposed to do Christmas decorations at our school, but many teachers add the white lights. Love it! Jen :)

  3. Darn! I should've put up lights. Maybe next year ;-)
