Day 85- Christmas Miracle!

It all happened like this...

After the annual Christmas sing-along my class came back to the room and played Around the World with addition math facts. (Yesterday that game was all this soldier talked about!)

Well, after the game, we took a bathroom break because I didn't want anyone to have to leave during the Pie- Throwing that was happening at 9:30. When we came back into the room.... a CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

On everyone's table was a stuffed animal! And, one of my students said that she saw an elf outside our room when we came back! It looks like Santa and his helpers came for a visit!

 So we took our new friends to the carpet to listen to the story The Night Before Christmas.

After the story we all went to the gym to watch teachers get pied! What brave souls!

Students in grades 3-5 paid $100 Cub Bucks for the chance to be picked to throw a pie. The rest of the students paid $50 to get to watch and it was awesome! Some of our students have great aim!

(Unfortunately, since I was the MC, I did not get to take pictures of the teachers with mess on their faces. I will try to get some of the pictures that other teachers took!)

The last person to get pied was a surprise, it was... Mr. Evans! He had to be dragged to the middle of the gym. The student , unfortunately, only hit his shoulder with the pie, so the fashionable Ms. Brewer had to help out. You'll remember Ms. Brewer from {THIS} post. Ms. Brewer's aim was much better, and the pie was all over his face.

After the Pie- Toss was lunch, and after lunch we went home!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Break!
