It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Okay.  I have a confession to make.  Hi.  My name is Megan.  I have been listening to Christmas music since before Thanksgiving.  But it is not ALL my fault.  XM Radio starts playing Holiday Traditions really early in the season. 

As a result of all the fa-la-la-la-las, I couldn't WAIT to take down my Thanksgiving decorations and put up my Christmas things!! 

As you may know, I like to change my Writing Station with the month/season/holiday, so here it is:

I got the tablecloth from Target last year on sale.  I thought that it was fun without being too over the top.

The crayon and pencil containers are from Target's dollar aisle.

This is my December Holiday Word "Wall."  As you can see, it is not actually on a wall.  I put the page in a clear document frame and have it on the writing table.  Check out my TPT store, and you can pick up one for your classroom.

The other picture that I have to show you is of my Holiday Station:

I know it looks kind of bare now, but I will add more to it as the days go by.  The white envelope on the counter is from my Winter Wonderland Math and Language Arts Center pack on TPT.  This particular activity has the children sort Christmas tree bulbs into categories of complete and incomplete sentences.  There is a recording sheet in the envelope as well.

I also have a small Christmas tree in the front of my classroom, but I kinda figured that once you see one three foot artificial tree, you've seen them all.

The last thing that I am really excited about is the books that I ordered my students for their gift from me.  My kids are REALLY into the David books by David Shannon.  When I saw this in the December SeeSaw book order, I knew that I had to get it for them:

I can't WAIT to see their faces!!

Happy Tuesday!
