Random Wednesday

Because I've been trying to get as much mileage as possible out of these.......


I haven't even thought about cute outfits. 

(Yes, I like Christmas shirts.)

I also like Christmas crafts or projects.

One favorite was found on Pinterest.  A teacher related pin.

So I put my students to work.  

They had to write a how-to paragraph.  Specifically, how to make the Grinch grin............

And boy did they work hard.  I had some very creative, cute, and funny paragraphs.  

But one in particular absolutely stole my heart.

Yes, I had a favorite........

To make the Grinch grin, I would tell him the true 
meaning of Christmas. I would tell him that it is Jesus' 
birthday, and we give and get presents to remember 
the greatest gift of all. I would also play fun games with him. 
So he does not get mad, I would let him win each time. 
 That is how I would make the Grinch grin.

From the mouth of a nine year old.

I think all of that would make the Grinch grin.

Merry Christmas!
