Where did the year go?

I cannot believe it has been so long since my last post! As many of you teachers know, once November rolls around, it is crazy at school. Special programs, special activities, class parties, school programs, holiday breaks, etc. We had a fun Thanksgiving in my class with the traditional hand print turkey place mats and indian garb. Since then, we have been traveling around the world and learning about how Christmas is celebrated in Italy, Sweden, Germany and many other international locations. I have learned a few new things, myself. I always love teaching Kindergarten but being with a group of kids at this time of year is just magical (although exhausting). The kids are so excited and the fun activities that we get to do in class are what we were all thinking about when we decide we want to be kindergarten teachers. Another one of my favorite things to do with my class during the holidays is share great books. Here are some great books we have read in class this month. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! Enjoy your breaks, all you teachers and I will be back to my blog more diligently in January.
