So far this week I have been peed on (a first for me!) and today one of my monsters lost her tooth. And by lost her tooth, I mean she pulled it out right in front of me. Here's the weird thing: the tooth bothered me more! Seriously, I have this horrible loose, wiggly tooth phobia. It started during my student teaching. A student had braces (5th grader) and a tooth came out and was dangling on the bracket. For 3 days. 3 days that tooth dangled in my face. So yeah, me and teeth are not friends. Seriously, it makes me ill. It's a kindergarten smorgasboard of phobias for me!
This week we are in the midst of our Christmas/holiday festivities! We kicked off our festivus for the rest of us with one of my favorite books (oh, who am I kidding...they're all my favorites!) Moosletoe! If you don't have it, GET IT! It's great. Lots of great vocabulary and great for retelling (hello flow maps and sequencing!) and also for problem/solution. We have had a lot of fun with our friend Moose.
To keep that fun going, we enabled Mr. Greg's love of craftivities with this cute Moosletoe!
I posted this on my Facebook page (WHAT?!?! You're not a friend on Facebook?! Well go fix that!) and got a lot (OK, like 2, but in my reality that is a lot!) comments asking about the pattern. WELL, the pattern is a Greg Smedley-Warren original! I drew the pieces for the pattern! The stars are actually Hanukkah stickers that we had leftover from last year. And of course, we added glitter to the moose-stache!
Here is your freebie! It's the pattern I created for our Moose!

Today's topic of discussion:
What is your school/district policy regarding Kindergarten students (or any grade really) wearing diapers/pull-ups? This doesn't apply to students with IEPs or medical issues. We have 2 kindergartners wearing pull-ups just because...so I am curious about policies elsewhere.
This is one of my favorite outfits I've shown so far!!!
