Well, today has certainly been an interesting day! With a late start this morning, we came to school and practically went right to lunch and recess! The students had so much fun playing in the snow (and in the chilly weather!) outside. Back inside, we warmed up doing our normal routine of yoga and our Friday book treasure book. We read “The Polar Express” and the students treasure is a silver bell. Can you see the connection??
Finally, it was time for our holiday party! Thank you to all of the parents who I asked to bring in treats- I really appreciate it! First things first for our party, we put on the movie version of “The Polar Express”. What a fun connection- we just read the book and now were watching the movie! The students started at their desks while eating some snacks:
And after some seconds, we pushed all of our desks to the sides, got out our pillows and blankets and snuggled in to watch the rest of the movie. During much giggling, wiggling, and readjusting 😉 they finished the movie! And they loved it!
All in all, it was a fun, busy last day here! Even though it was a half day, we still did so much. Remember, over the break- don’t stop reading! This is a very important time in your child’s reading development. Read to them, have them read to them self, and have them read to others- all of this will help them become better readers! Have a fantastic break and a very Merry Christmas! See you in 2013!
