These kiddos sure know how to get me into the holiday spirit! Excitement leading up to our break was contagious. What fun to be young and enjoy the magic of the season! Despite the energy we were still productive and busy! Travel Trott Scott sent a special package to us to help us explore different holidays around the world. We learned about Hannukah, Kwanza, Christmas, Chinese New Year & Las Posadas. We were also scheduled to visit England and India, but we ran out of time- maybe next year! This fit nicely with our cultural study and helping children respect and better understand other cultures.
We had an excellent class party thanks to our room moms and help from our families! We created sugar cookie goodies and decorated special cards for our loved ones. Thank you all for your support!
In carrying on a longstanding 1/2 Y tradition, we also made some time to create winter centerpieces together-we were real naturals! Using winter greenery including White Pine, Balsam, Douglas Fir, Silver Fir, Boxwood, a touch of shiny decorations and pinecones we had our own festive arrangements. Don't forget to water them and hope they bring some holiday cheer to your home!
See you in 2018!
