Christmas Tree Measurement and a Little Freebie

This week we started learning about measurement.  One of the activities we did to understand non-standard measurement was measuring Christmas trees with our names on them.

After making these bedazzled trees, we measured them with snowflakes and wrote about them.

We also started our gifts for our families.  This will be my third year to make these special ornaments:

There is a similar idea floating around pinterest, but this is what we make for our loved ones.  I buy SHATTERPROOF ornaments at Wal-mart.  They are in a box of 40 for $8.96.  This allows you leftovers for next year.  Then you paint each student's hand with white acrylic paint.  The student then grabs the bottom of the ornament to make their hand print.  Let them dry overnight, then allow them to use sharpies to decorate the little snowmen.  I attach ribbon and this poem:
