On Thursday, Santa came and visited our classroom! Each of the preschoolers got to sit with Santa, and tell him what they wanted for Christmas. Santa also gave everyone a special present to take home! What a special and memorable day.
These preschoolers did such a great job in our Christmas program! It was such a wonderful and joyous night.
On December 20th, we went on an all-school field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry! Some of us even got to ride on a school bus for the very first time! The students got to explore the museum together, as well as look at the Christmas Around the World Exhibit. We loved seeing the Finland Christmas tree after studying Finland's Christmas traditions! What an amazing experience. (Parents: If you have any more field trip photos, feel free to email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them to our site!)
Today in preschool, we took a class vote on which Christmas treat we like better, Gingerbread men cookies or candy canes. Each student (and teacher) chose their favorite, and wrote their name on our class chart. We counted the names and in the end, candy canes was the winner! We then taste tested the treats. Yum!
Today in Preschool, we built our own Christmas tree using green cups! Our goal was to work together to try and build as tall of a tree as we could. Each preschooler added their own cup to the tree, and the students used team work to create our very own Preschool Christmas tree! Then, the cups were available in the blocks center for the preschoolers to continue to try and build the tallest Christmas tree.
