Candy Cane Day

The last Wednesday we are in school every month we have an early release day!   I try to make it a themed day and today we had a Candy Cane Day!  We started our day with making a candy cane. 

We started out by filling in sight words to a poem I created.!


Then we traced and painted the stripes on our candy canes!




Our finished product!  


My kiddos were obsessed with them after they were all done.  They were pretending to eat them and could not stop laughing about it!  So of course we took a class picture of  everyone pretending to eat them! :)
Before we went home, we did Mrs. Leeby's Candy Cane Investigation pack!  Thanks Irene!  The kiddos LOVED this!  We graphed if we liked candy canes or not and then used our 5 senses to investigate our candy cane!



Everyone like candy canes!


Today was a fun day doing all sorts of candy cane activities!  Bonus- it is the hubby's birthday...which means ice cream cake!! Yum!!! :)
