Happy 2010!! New Year Day is my second favorite holiday (after Halloween:-)) because everyone makes resolutions and is so hopeful to work hard in order to grow and better themselves. My New Year's resolution is going to be better with requiring the respect I deserve, so beware ;-) :-) What will your New Year resolution be?
The first graders made party hats to wear on New Years Eve. They earned the right to do papier mache! They got there hands (and the tables) nice and goooooey with flour paste (1 cup flour, 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt). First they used newspaper to cover the cone and then they decorated with tissue paper, glitter and sequins.
After break everyone starts with pencils again. I hope that all the classes can earn the right to use papier mache by the end of the school year. Work hard and quiet so that we can do extra cool stuff.
Make sure you remember to wear your party hats, tiaras, dress up and make noise at midnight! And decide what your resolution will be!
I am resigning from posting until after Winter Break. I wish everyone a Happy New Year and I will see you after break.
