I hope you all have enjoyed the last week with family and friends! I also hope you all have stayed warm with these cold temperatures! I can't wait to see everyone on Wednesday, January 3rd! Please make sure your child has warm boots, jackets and things for the next few weeks- we will not see temps above 20 degrees for awhile!
On Thursday the 21st, our team space turned into a WinterFest! Small groups of students researched and organized a station about a holiday celebrated around the world! Each station had an interactive component- music, singing, craft, or game! Students traveled through the stations getting their passports stamped and by filling the pages with facts about holidays from around the world! This was a great way to learn about culture and to find the similarities that unite us around the globe!
Our classroom Secret Snowflake Book Swap was highly successful! Such thoughtful choices for one another! I hope we all read at least 1 or two books this vacation! Let's continue to build our reading stamina and live the readerly life in 2018! Maybe we should do a Valentine's Day Book Swap, too!
Cookies, cookies, cookies! I hope families enjoyed the amazing family recipes shared at our Winter Cookie Swap! I so appreciate the time spent preparing for this fun event! My family loved tasting all the wonderful treats!
PS- Band will be on Friday this week! Check the lesson schedule!
