I say “Jingle” you say, “Bells” Jingle! Bells! Jingle! Bells! It is definitely feeling the holidays here in Kindergarten! Spontaneous singing of carols, lots of giggly smiles, and sometimes a few more extra tears than normal…while we as adults know what it can feel like to be “busy,” remember, our little ones don’t always know how to deal with emotions like stress and anticipation quite yet…enjoy the magic of the holidays and find some time for quiet play and relaxation!
Our Mystery Reader program continues to be a huge success! Thank you to everyone who has stopped by to read so far! We had a special visitor on Friday, Cory’s mom, and she even brought a special gift for all the students…(While this was very generous, it is not necessary! The gift of you is enough!) The kiddos did love the hats though! 🙂
Here’s what we will be up to before vacation…
- Shared reading – inferencing with Holiday books

Have a safe and happy Winter Break! See you in 2017!
