Student Christmas Gifts on a tight budget

I wish I would have posted this sooner, but I am such a big procrastinator.  I was doing some last minute shopping last night at Wal-Mart looking around to see what I can buy for 36 of my students.  I didn't want to get them anything too cheap, but getting even two dollar gifts really would make a dent on my budget.  So I was wandering around the store and I see a pack of 15 foam rectangles for one dollar and tried super hard to get my creative juices flowing.  I was determined to try to make something out of this and thought of making a small clipboard with Post-Its that they can keep in their desk and use during Writing and Reading Workshops.  I bought some Puffy Paint 0.99 cents each, some binder clips 12 for $1.00 and Voila, some hand made Christmas gift for students that are super inexpensive.  Here are some pictures

Rock Star video

Here is the video that my fourth graders worked on last year. They had such a blast filming the video. The Edwards Aquifer Authority and Say Si did an awesome job!

100 days writing

In my 4th grade class we don't make a very big deal out of our 100th day like the primary grades do, but we did do the cutest writing activity.  I had the students write a fictional autobiography of themselves at 109 years old.  They wrote about their accomplishments in life and what they are doing now at 109 or 110 years of age.  Their pictures were adorable and their expository essays were awesome!  Made a cute bulletin board display.
