'Twas the day that Winter Break was to begin and we had so much to do! The day started out with a surprise visitor...can you guess who?
Ms. Arboe came back and spent the whole day with us. She even wore pajamas. It was so fun to see her! She finished up her second student teaching assignment at Valley Middle School and graduated from Winona State University with her degree in education on December 13. She is hoping to be around in the coming months as a substitute teacher for District 196 and will be looking for a teaching job in the Twin Cities area.
Mr. Zach was back on Friday as well. He helped each of us do a cool painting project. We mixed shaving cream and glue and painted snowmen. The paint is puffy and when we finished it, we put glitter on it to make it look sparkly. It took a really long time to dry so we will decorate these after winter break.
We LOVED wearing our pajamas to school...
...and we liked making silly faces, too!
For our winter party, we kept things kind of low key. We had popcorn and hot chocolate (with marshmallows!). We also watched the movie "Frosty the Snowman". It was so great to have our special treat and just lay on the heated floor in our jammies and watch a movie!
Have a safe and relaxing Winter Break! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and wish you all the best for the New Year. See you on January 6!
