Today was the class Christmas party! Mrs. Boettcher and Mrs. Kelso, along with some help from a few moms helped give the kids a great party. The class was told to wear as much red and green as possible! Since Isabel didn’t have anything Christmassy, we headed to the store a few days before to get a party outfit.
The shirt she picked out for her class party. She made the necklace at school (see below).
Her matching socks.
Isabel was excited after class today! She said, the room was divided into “stations”. One station, was for cookie decorating. Another was a jingle-bell necklace making station. One station was a Christmas card puzzle and another station was Christmas Bingo. Isabel said she was the first to get Bingo and she won a candy cane!
At the cookie making station, Isabel was given a tree shaped sugar cookie. She was able to spread the icing on herself (but told not to lick the knife!!) and was given several different candies to top it with! Her cookie was coated with several different things and one large gummy penguin! I think this station was her favorite place to be today.
Her decorated cookie; she chomped the top off at school!
The opening activity was a coloring page. You can’t tell from the scan but it’s colored “like a rainbow”, Isabel said.
They talked about the “wise-men” or “kings” coming to visit Jesus after his birth.
They talked about giving gifts to Jesus. What would you give?
If you open Isabel’s gift, you would see she would give gold.
Isabel said they did go out for recess but it was for a short time. She didn’t say what she did when she was out there, which I thought was odd because if it was any other day, recess is all she talks about! I know today isn’t any other day though!
