We had such a good, but busy week! We learned about family traditions and celebrations. It seems like lots of our families have special ways to celebrate together all throughout the year. You will see that when our class book visits your house, if it hasn't already. We read many stories, completed projects and wrote about the celebrations of Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa. Here are some photos of those activities…
We read the story Night Tree by Eve Bunting and made our own night trees. In this story, a family decorates a tree in the woods every year with treats for the animals that live there.
We read the story Hanukkah Lights, Hanukkah Nights by Leslie Kimmelman. It told us about a family and how they celebrate Hanukkah.
We each got a copy of the book Germs are Not for Sharing! from Minneapolis Children's Hospital and Kohl's Department Stores. YAY! Hope you can read it at home, too.
We continue to work hard in Writing Workshop. These little authors are writing their stories in booklets now. They are doing great and loving it, but the highlight is the wonderful sharing we do at the end of each Workshop session.
Mrs. Radermacher was our Guest Reader on Pajama Day!
And, of course, we loved wearing pajamas to school!
We did have a little time at the end of the day to watch Frosty the Snowman with the other kindergarten classes and our stuffed animals.
I hope you all have a safe, relaxing winter break. Whatever your family traditions, enjoy your time with your family and friends. See you next year! :-)
