It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

This week the children came back to school very excited for Christmas.  In order to match their Christmas spirit we have already started reading Christmas themed books and singing Christmas carols.  They have been really interested in building with different materials, we introduced gum drops and toothpicks.  They really enjoyed making a variety of gum drop creations to include Violets window and Dominique’s watch.  This was great fine motor development and an introduction to math skills.  We will be introducing more unconventional building materials.
