We loved our Christmas centres! Every year we love to do all our Christmas crafts and activities together as a Kindergarten division, and break into small groups for rotations. It's wonderful to see how the different group dynamics work with the classes mixed together and different parents running different centres. Similar to our Hallowe'en centres, we plan math, language, gross motor, fine motor, and arts connections to all our activities. Thank you so much to all the parents who volunteered their time to come and help out!
We've been getting ready to perform in our annual concert! Each year, we celebrate our music, dance, oral language and social skills by showcasing several songs and poems on the stage for everyone to see. This year, we used the handbells to sing and play 'Jolly Old St. Nicholas', and performed 5 Little Elves, the Reindeer Pokey, Rudolph to the Rescue, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas.
It was a lot of fun to also perform for our grandparents. Every year, we give out tickets to our Grandparent's Tea, and perform in the gym the day before our concert. We like to share refreshments with them after and give them a tour of our room. Grandparents are a big part of our lives and we like to send them messages to know they are loved.
If you have any photos or video of the Tea or Concert, please email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can add it here. :)
