Jingle Bell Rock!


The kids are so excited today! They are finally going to make a jingle bracelet with me in kindergarten. This takes a bit of prep but is well worth the trouble to do. The directions can be found in my elf packet that has , math magic.   I love this project because we can practice counting by 2's together, do a bit of patterning which actually is embedded in common core, and add a little bell for some bling. I have elf cards that go along with this project for some additional skip counting practice. The students love that they are elf feet since "Magic" has been hiding all over the classroom this week. He really likes to learn but never cleans up his mess! So if you need some elf jewelry you can grab it in this packet. I cannot wait to see how they do with this. The little book is perfect to take home and share with their families.

Seriously brilliant Fran! Counting mixed in with bling is for sure a winning combination! Bet your kiddos were giddy with delight!

Happiest of Holidays to you Fran and thank you for all the encouragement and advice this past year. Wishing you a relaxing vacation and blessings for the new year!
