Overall it was a good night. The first 2 grades went, then we played some games, and then the second 2 groups went. We finished it off with a visit from "Santa" (which was Ben dressed in an ill-fitted Santa suit- his pants kept falling down. Funny, but not very Santa-like) and a group picture.
The third graders led a sing-along of "Jingle Bells".
The fourth graders read the Three Little Pigs and Green Eggs and Ham. The little girl, being unable to pronounce "eggs", instead pronounced each word as "egres", which was very amusing.

Our fifth graders read Twas the Night Before Christmas. Unfortunately while playing games two of the students' papers with their notes went missing, so during the performance one of the girls froze a little, but we got her back on track and they did a nice job.
We ended the night with a group photo, followed by a photo of our class. As much as those kids drove me crazy, I'm going to miss the little monsters. It was a fun way to start Friday nights, and it was nice to see their progress. I also really enjoyed planning the lessons, I guess I really am meant to be a teacher.
Here is the video Kevin kindly took of the beginning introduction/performance :)
