Giving Thanks in a Winter Wonderland

Ahh December…  A new season and month is upon us as our school transforms into a Winter Wonderland. We are ready to cozy up our classroom and celebrate the gifts that this time of year brings. 

We leave November with good memories and full bellies!  Our Sprouts learned to bake cookies, breads, and other tasty snacks! This was just a warm-up for end of the month traditions with family, friends, and feasts.  Our Sprouts spent time recognizing people, places, and things that surround us daily and showing thanks in their own special way.  It is so heart-warming to hear about how much your kids love and admire you, their families, and all you do for them!  We are thankful for such a great community!  Great job Sprouts on your family table centerpieces and proudly presenting your creative artwork to your classmates!

This month, we welcome Winter in a number of ways... We will uncover the joys of December!  We will study the science of snow, learn about singing and rhythm, travel to our Earth's polar regions to see what's happening (and who's happening), and discover the people and places that make up our community.  All the while, putting our hands to work as we examine textures, fabrics and create home made gifts!   Such fun exploration ahead!

Stay warm!
