Rooms 17 & 18 had a wonderful holiday celebration.
To begin the day we finished reading the book The Story of Holly and Ivy. It is a special story about an orphaned little girl who finds a forever home. Holly ends up living with Mr. and Mrs. Jones who were wishing for a little girl to share their lives with them and she also receives a special doll, Ivy, who was wishing for a girl to love. After reading the story, we watched the video and compared the book to the movie.
At snack time we had our "Party in a Bag" treat and made some special winter trees with fingerprints as snowflakes. (A special thank you to our room parents who helped organize our craft.)
After recess and lunch we presented the children with their holiday gifts. It was a goody bag that included: a new book to read, a personalized bookmark and new crayons, pencils and erasers. (Thanks to the Moms who helped put the bags together.) It was exciting to see the children's eyes light up when they saw their gifts.
At the end of the day the children enjoyed some quiet time to enjoy their new books.
We all had a wonderful end to 2016 and are looking forward to the new year!
