Here is a glance at what we've been up to this month!
We got to learn a little bit more about fire safety! We had a lot of questions and our fire fighter friend was very kind to listen to our stories.
During recess we have been having a blast in the snow. There are hard snowballs in the field that we enjoy climbing on and the icy hill has been great for sliding.
Our math time has been very productive. We have steadily been working through various stations which have been helping us to write our numbers from 1-10, order numbers, and build patterns. Other games have given us the chance to combine numbers within five.
This month we met two new magical friends! Their names are Poppy and Penny and they are our classroom kindness elves. Each day they left us a message. Some days we were given a kindness challenge while other days we were given special surprises. Some of our favorites included special holiday pencils and a skittle experiment!
Throughout the month we have been learning about various holidays that happen during December. We made crafts and played games and had a ton of fun!
When we were studying Hanukkah we played with dreidels. It was a lot of fun to learn how to play and to use our shiny "alphabits" as the tokens.
Our forest time was pretty cold but also pretty beautiful. We went slip-sliding to our home base each Friday and enjoyed exploring the space in a different way. It's like a different world with snow which brings out so many different playing opportunities.
The last week before vacation was filled with Christmas crafts and lots of laughs. We had a cozy pajama day on our last day and watched the Grinch as a special treat.
