1. We learned about various holiday traditions around the world. We talked about Christmas traditions and we learned about traditions associated with Diwali and Hanukkah. The kids loved it.
2. We made glowing Christmas lights. We traced a light tracer with colored chalk. Then we took a cotton ball and rubbed the chalk outward to make the lights "glow." They were beautiful hanging up in our classroom.
3. Our amazing art teacher had our classes make art to go with our holidays around the world theme. They made Christmas tree (Germany) and wooden shoes (Netherlands).
4. We ended our week with a lot of candy. We decorated tree (upside down sugar cones) and cookies. It was a great way to end things before winter break.
How did your last weeks before vacation go?
