Family Christmas Night

Each  year at our school, we have a special night dedicated to a celebration of the Christmas season. It is considered a literacy event because there is a reading of a Christmas book for the children and their families. At this reading, there is ALWAYS hot cocoa and cookies! After the story and snack, guests are taken on a tour of our elementary and kindergarten buildings. Why? You would think that they had all seen it by now! No, really, it's a tour of the buildings...all gussied up for the holidays!!!

This year, the theme of our family Christmas night is "Light Up the HALLidays." In the kindergarten building we always coordinate our decor so that our entire building is the same general theme. Last year, we were 'Gingerbread Lane,' and I promise you, it was super cute! We were a little stumped on our theme for this year. Other than hanging lights from the ceilings, how do you 'light up' classroom doors? Then, it was suggested that Rudolph has a bright and shiny that can light up the whole sky for Santa's, the birth of an idea began. So this year, we are Santa's Stable. The door to the kindergarten office shows Rudolph, leaping with excitement over Christmas Eve's rapid approach. Each classroom door is decorated as one of the other reindeer, with a description of that door's reindeer on display. Let me tell you, it is uh-'door'-able!!!

 Our door showcases "Prancer." 

Prancer is Santa's navigational expert! However, she is rather clumsy. I chose to have her tangled up in her holiday decor, with her compass dangling from her antlers. She also has her handy dandy map in hand, ready to fly on Christmas Eve!

Nearly Halfway Done!

It was time to update the 100 Club page, so I thought I would also give a little update on what we've been up to this nine weeks. As for the 100 Club, half of our class is in! *insert Happy Dance here*

In class, we have had Columbus Day festivities...

A Fourth Gone By!

A fourth of what? A fourth of the 2013-14 school year, that's what!!! This week is the 9th week of school, which is completely unbelievable to me, but indeed it is! We have been up to a bunch of good stuff already this year, with a whole lot more to come! We already have three members in our 100 Club (which has been updated with new photos)! The kinders are so excited about getting to try out for this club. They ask DAILY if we can try again!

Last week was Fire Safety Week in Kindergarten, which culminated in a final presentation by the firefighters in our community. It was awesome! They were all super listeners for our guests. I hope they all enjoyed the surprise coloring and activity book that they were each given by the fire department for this special day. Our class was especially interested in the 'jaws of life' that were laying out by one of the trucks. They got a special explanation of what they were and how they are used. I am so thankful that our community has such great volunteers who are also willing to give of their time to help educate our children.

When you're this cute, there's always time to smile for the paparazzi, right?

I am so proud of this group of sweethearts! They are really working hard and have come a long way already.
