We had Project Open House last night! Lots of families came and we showed the work we’ve been doing on our Community project. We ended the presentation by singing “It’s a Wonderful World”.
We made snowflakes during choice time; we’ll make some more in January so that people who didn’t get a turn today can make some.
At library time Tawnya showed us a book, The Twelve Days of Christmas. Tawnya told us it’s a very old song, maybe as much as 500 years old. Some of us knew a lot of the words already. We used our fingers to count the numbers as we went along.
Tawnya could only go up to 5 since she was holding the book with one hand. The rest of us could go up to 10 since we could use both hands. We were a little stumped when we got to 11. Some people suggested flashing 10 fingers and then 1 finger and while we were thinking of other ways, someone suggested using teamwork. Pretty soon lots of people found a buddy to help them- one person held up 10 fingers and the other held up 1, then 2 when we got to 12.
Have a great break and happy holidays!
