Holiday workshop

I went into school today to help with Ladybug's class. They had four different craft tables set up with two moms at each table. Four groups of kids would rotate through each station. I got to help with the wrapping station. Each of the kids decorated a brown paper bag with stamps, stickers or marker drawings. Ladybug also got to make a tinsel stuff ornament, puzzle picture frame and a peanut butter pine cone bird feeder.

The kids all looked so cute with their little hats on and worked so well with each of their activities. Something I really liked that her teacher did was made one kid in each group the manager. The manager was in charge of taking their group to each station and making sure they stayed on task. At the end of all the rotations the manager gave a report about how well their group performed and depending on performance the group earned pennies to send in their class store.
