Celebrations of light

The celebrations of light continue this week! We have learned abut many holidays including Kwanzaa, Diwali, Eid, Christmas, and Hanukkah.  Yesterday, we made lanterns for Eid with white crayon and water color - they turned out beautiful!

What ways do you celebrate your holiday? What traditions do you have at home?

Yesterday was Polar Express Day!

All week we are working on the theme "The Polar Express" We are doing Polar Express writing, math centers, literacy centers, and crafts! But yesterday, we got to wear pajamas, drink hot cocoa, and eat candy, just like the kids in the book The Polar Express! The whole day was a blast as the kids enjoyed the movie on their very on "train."
