We had a blast at our annual “Night Before Christmas” Party. On the last day of school before Winter Break all students (and teachers) came to school in their pajama’s and brought their favorite stuffed animal along too! We made and decorated cookies, we read the book The Night Before Christmas, and we had a great time celebrating together. Enjoy the pictures from both our T/TH group and our M/W/F group!

Christmas Tree Time

Rather than setting up a Christmas tree for the students, we involve them!  Earlier this week we got to walk to the Christmas Tree Lot down the street where Kiley sells tree’s. We got a lesson on how to pick a tree, the different kinds of trees, and how to figure out how old a tree is!
Here is our M/W/F class walking down to the tree lot

Once we got to the lot we got to look and feel all the trees

And we got a lesson from Kiley on how to figure out a tree’s age by counting the rings on it’s trunk!

After picking out our favorite tree we brought it back to school. Kiley came and got our trees all set up!
