We have been talking about Christmas and everything related to this very special season! Vocabulary words that we have been reviewing include gifts, giving, toys, elves, Santa´s workshop, sliehg, and train.
For each one of these vocabulary words we have been relating them in our classroom. During Creativity Class they were able to wrap some gifts while we explained that this is a season of giving and that Santa brings toys to the boys and girls who behave themselves! Most of them were able to tell us what they would like Santa to bring them: motorcycles, ipads, cars, swings,&dolls were some of the items mentioned…..
When we talked about elves, or Santa´s helpers, our Terrific Tigers got dressed up as elves and they were happy to pretend to be one of them! They enjoyed “helping” Santa prepare all the toys! We got to see a little part of the wonderful movie:”The Polar Exress” which is a beautiful movie related to thisChristmas time!
During Creativity Class they have been busy helping out with the scenery for the upcoming Christmas presentation “Rockefeller Christmas Spectacular”, and they have started working on a very special Christmas gift they are making for you!
Physical Development has been all about practicing and rehearsing for this special presentation we will have on Tuesday.They are excited about presenting for you and have been dancing and dancing!
