Holiday Trees

Counting ChristmasWe had an extremely small class today... 2 children! Must be the Holidays:) William, Clara and the adults had fun with such a sparse group anyhow! We read "Counting Christmas" by Karen Katz and then worked on our craft. Today we made Holiday Trees. The background is blue and white paint spread over a sheet of paper with a recycled piece of cardboard, the tree is torn paper and we decorated with more paper, glitter glue and used a star-shaped sponge with yellow paint for the star. Clara used stuffing to create snow. They did a great job! Happy Holidays

Reindeer Handprints!

Pete the Cat Saves Christmas (Hardcover) We read "Pete the Cat Saves Christmas" by Eric Litwin, sang the "Lion Hunt" and made a handprint reindeer craft. Children used wrapping paper for the trees in their winter scene background, construction paper for the tree trunks and decorations, paint for their handprints and snow, and google eyes because they are cool:) Check out our Holiday fun!

Penguin Snowglobes

If You Were a Penguin (Hardcover) Today we read "If You Were a Penguin" by Florence Minor and Wendell Minor, where we learned that people do lots of things that penguins do:) Our craft included making a penguin snowglobe from a recycled cd, yarn, construction paper scraps, glue and fabulous glitter to finish it off. They turned out great!
