Is there a such thing as a low key party? plus winners !!!

Is there a such thing as a low key party? Oh my... I am exhausted! I did get to dart out of school right at 2:00 and now relaxing after a hot shower.

Here are some of my tips. I'd love to know your tips!
1. Have a guest reader - You can really get ready if there's a reader keeping your little ones occupied

2. Pick one craft and don't try to do it on the day of the party. I always run out of time at parties so rarely do I do crafts the day of the party.

3. Kids love using their five senses. I try to fit in some curriculum during parties. This year I covered our Science Unit: five senses.  At Christmas we will be doing a goods and services unit and Holidays Around the World.

4. Keep them busy! Packets are a plus! There are tons of free packets on tpt. Students always need something on their desk. I love my pumpkin time unit and can't wait for Holidays Around the World.

5.  Use signup genius to get donations for party food or supplies. This year we had Chick-Fil-A.  Three parents sent in money other parents sent in paper products, cupcakes, drinks, etc.

How do you keep SANE on holidays? I swear Halloween is the worst :)

  1. Fun games...wish my room moms would have had any of these. Instead, we putted. As in golf. One at a time, meaning there was a lot of down time. Hence lots of fighting with light sabers and swords from costumes. :-(

    Your little niece in the black and lime green costume is seriously adorable!

  2. Love all your pictures. Looks like your class and you had a blast!!!


  3. What a fun day!! I am totally going to use the idea of a guest reader for our Christmas party!

  4. Love all of it! Your students are so lucky to have you as their teacher. The five senses activity is great! I bet your kids had so much fun.
