Christmas Projects

All the kids say "Wow! That's so cool." about this project. This is a Boot Pencil Holder. It's shaped like Santa Claus' boot, with a penguin sitting at the toe. The kids had a lot of fun with this project.

These kids are working on a Christmas Wreath. The kids are really great, they completed this project in 3 hours! All the parents say "That's amazing!"

I told the kids when you finish this project you can hang it outside your front door. But they all refused, saying they didn't want the wreath to get dirty or damaged. They said they will hang it indoors instead.

One kid accidentally(?) made what he calls "Christmas Poo". He said it's a gift for his dad. He made the whole class burst into laughter. I was so surprised how the kids were so excited about this "special project" for about 10 minutes. They just kept looking at it and laughing.

Bright Smiles

I love seeing the bright smiles of kids. It makes me very happy. It's what I look forward to most each day.

Teddy Bear Pencil Holder

The parents who see this project all say "Wow, it's just fantastic!" because it not only looks great, but is very useful too. Even though the kids who worked on this project are very small, their concentration and focus rivals that of adults. I wish I could have taken pictures of each child that shows not only how focused they are, but also how much fun they are having, but I didn't have enough time.

Looking at these finished projects, can you believe that they were made by such small kids? These kids are absolutely great! I am so very proud of them. What do you think?


Looking my students' projects, I can't help but smile. They work on the same theme, but they end up with very different finished products. Take the Halloween Welcome Door Sign for example, every pumpkin has a different facial expression, they are all so cute! Sometimes the kids' creativity surprises even me.
