Last night, as I was doing my nightly Pinteresting I came arcoss a "Snowflakes for Sandy Hook" pin. The students from Sandy Hook will be attending a new school when they return in January. The PTA is going to be creating a "Winter Wonderland" throughout the school and are asking schools around the country to make and send snowflakes. Check out the article here.
This morning our kiddies got going on making and decorating snowflakes to send. They turned out so cute!! We are sending a HUGE box full. :)
Today was full of projects!
We did a "Santa's Stuck" writing. This can be found in our Hopping Through the Holidays Pack.
Tomorrow our kids will climb aboard the Polar Express in their pjs.
I transform the room into the train (thanks Beth Newingham for the idea)!
As they walk into the classroom they are given a round trip ticket to the North Pole. Before boarding the train they are served a cup of hot chocolate and their ticket is clipped. While enjoying their hot chocolate I read the story. We then have a bunch of fun activities (all Polar Express related) to complete throughout the day. We end the fun with the movie and a venn diagram to compare and contrast the book and movie!
