Happy holidays! I hope that you are all enjoying your time at home with your family and friends. I am spending a quiet holiday season at home with my family, and catching up on some sleep (and movies)! Thank you for all of the wonderful gifts and cards your little ones brought in over the last week or two of school. Your thoughfulness is much appreciated. 🙂
Speaking of the last week of school, even though it was a short one, we still kept busy with some fun-filled activities. We concluded our author study of Jan Brett by reading her delightful Christmas stories and doing some special activities to coincide with them. We made a batch of gingerbread cookies, painted with watercolor paints and crayons, made clay models, and texture-painted gingerbread men. We wrapped up our social studies unit on traditions and quality of life in communities around the world, and we practiced our addition strategies in math.
Please check out our two new videos showcasing some of our December activities. Happy New Year!
