Charlie Brown week and a classroom tip

 Everything in my TPT store will be 28% off using "cmt12" code at checkout. It will be on Monday and Tuesday, so check it out here. I'm working on a Charlie Brown unit to use with the "Merry Christmas Charlie Brown" story.  I don't do Santa in my room, so we have Charlie Brown week, and for their Christmas gift I give them a Charlie Brown plastic Christmas glass from Walmart, and then I make these ornaments, and put it all in a stocking. The ornaments are so easy to make- and cheap and FAST! I do the Charlie Brown unit the last week before Christmas vacation, and each day I dress up as someone from the story. I bought some cheap white tennies from Target and used a sharpie for Lucy's shoes, and put eyeliner all over my clothes and rat up my hair for Pigpen. It's fun. The kids dress up sometimes, too. My unit right now is 67 pages. I'm not done, it'll probably end up at about 75 pages. It's reading activities and grammar. I'm hoping to add some math to it before the sale.

Ignore the messy looking tubs of stuff next to their work. Note to self: Don't buy see-through tubs.
 Here is one of my favorite things about my classroom this year that I worked on over the summer. It's just a strip of ribbon that I cutsied up with ribbon and buttons at the top. I attach their work to the ribbon with paper clips. You can see them at the top of the kids' work. Two of them are covered in glitter, so they're a little harder to see. I attached the ribbon with 3M velcro strips and it's working like a charm and so easy to hang their work!
