It's Begininng to Look A Lot Like Christmas

We only have 3 full weeks of school before our Christmas break. Can you BELIEVE it?? Neither can I.  Look who has dropped in to the 4th grade pod.
Yes, it's Steve and Snowflake from the North Pole.  {squealing}  I'm sure every 4th grade student will be on their very best behavior for the next 3 weeks and I cannot wait to see the shenanigans from these two.

Really, there is so much to do and so much to enjoy I just want time to slow down.  I spent a little time this weekend getting the classroom in the spirit.  I found 8 hours of Instrumental Christmas music on youtube.  I think that it would be so wonderful to have this quietly planning in the background as the students were working.  {squeal}

I also have some wonderful activities planned for stations for the next 3 weeks.  Of course, I'm not quite ready to make activities for 4th graders, so that's why I'm using activities from these lovely teachers:
