Our last week of school before winter break was filled with Christmas festivities, fun, and a whole lot of holiday love!
We started off the week decorating red paper stockings with white ripped up cotton balls courtesy of our little toddler fingers! We didn't stop our decorating there, as we put together beautiful vases of poinsettias donated to our class by one of our Bluebonnets! They are beautiful and brought so much holiday cheer to our classroom! Our week of winter-themed art finished in a sparkly, spectacular fashion as our friends created individual meditation jars as a holiday gift for their families! The toddlers had a blast adding blue and silver glitter, blue, silver, and snowflake sequins, sparkly red and silver pom poms, and most importantly, last but certainly not least, a smiling picture of their own face to their snow globe meditation jar masterpiece! We hope your holiday jars are bringing warmth, peace, harmony, and happiness to your homes!
Our art work transferred to other parts of our daily routine as our Bluebonnets finished off a special pre-break week of school decorating sugar cookies with icing in blue, yellow, pink, and green! While we enjoyed this very special Friday treat, we continued to have discussions about healthy and nutritious foods this past week as our toddlers helped their teachers to prepare morning snack!
While discussing each of our friends' different winter break plans, our conversation inspired us to take our world map off of the wall and to study the different countries, continents, oceans, and animals living around the world! We also sang our "Do You Know the Continents?" song, and enjoyed putting our minds to gathering some good worldly knowledge! We exercised our brains during our weekly Chinese class with Ms. Siugi too, and worked our bodies with Ms. Vanessa during yoga! We were so happy to be able to give our special teachers some big holiday hugs after our last classes before the break!
To continue spreading and sharing holiday cheer, our Primary friends stopped by our room to sing some Christmas carols and our entire Green Sprout community joined together for an especially fun and festive dance party Friday on the playground!
As we wrap up the first half of our school year, your toddler teachers would like to thank our Bluebonnet families for your constant generosity, kindness, and love. We are so immensely grateful for your continuous support and dedication to your children both in and out of the classroom. They have grown so much over the past few months, as has our love for each of our toddlers and all of their families. Thank you for all that you do, every day.
We love you all so much and we wish you all very happy holidays and a wonderful new year!
Lots of love,
Jodie and Ashley
