Up until this year the last few days of school before Christmas break have always been consumed with semester test. I sit at my desk grading as the students finish so that I don’t have to grade them over the break. It’s an easy and peaceful few days.
This year will look differently as I have my first class Christmas party as a teacher. There is a part of me that is super excited about it. I LOVE Christmas. But then there is a part of me that is terrified. Will my students enjoy it? Will it be mass chaos?
I asked my coworkers today about what I need to do and they gave a few suggestions but told me I could pretty much do whatever I want. So I’m coming to you for party tips.
Do you do a theme? If so what themes have you had?
Do you buy gifts for your students? What can I get 25 sixth graders that won’t break the bank?
Do you find it easier if parents are present or not present for the party?
Do you play any games? What kind?
HOW DO YOU AVOID MASS CHAOS????
