5-Day: Fizzy Candy Canes, Floating Cranberries and "Fa-la-la-la-la!"

This week, 5-Day was filled with holiday cheer. The students were busy wrapping presents and decorating our Christmas tree in the dramatic play center. We had many different learning activities to supplement our Christmas theme, such as a holiday picture search, a memory game, gingerbread number salt trays, peppermint candy counting, jingle bells on Magna-Tiles, and fizzy candy canes. In our sensory table, we used our fine motor skills to pick up spice drops with tweezers, we used a balance scale to compare spice drops, cranberries and bears, and we played with floating cranberries. We were also very busy working on our "surprise" holiday gifts and practicing our holiday songs. You might hear your children singing, "Fa-la-la-la-la!"

This week, we also had your children write about their Christmas wishes! If you didn't already know, you're welcome! ;-)

Beneath my Christmas tree, I hope to see...

STELLA: a barbie cake maker

NICHOLAS: a red monster truck

REID: a garbage truck

Next week is a short week. On Monday and Tuesday, we will be learning a little bit about Hanukkah and Kwanza. On Wednesday, we look forward to seeing you at our holiday sing-along and party!

Have a great weekend!
