December 5

Happy Monday! Today was a great morning. We began our journey around the world for the holidays! Today, we discussed how the winter holidays are celebrated in the USA. We played on the back playscape, continued wrapping at our wrapping station, and sang holiday songs at the goodbye meeting! Friends also got their new job assignments!

School Family Job

Holiday’s Arouond The World: USA

Our first stop- USA! Somethings we learned about winter holidays in the USA include; people celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, decorate Christmas Trees and homes with lights, eat candy canes, exchange gifts, spend time with family and friends, eat a Christmas Ham and latkes, sing holiday songs and Santa Claus brings gifts!

Friends were invited to spin the globe and pic a location to research. Taylor was our first friend to and she choose Canada. Everyone else had the opportunity to practice spinning the globe and using their pointer finger to stop on a location!

Our Holiday Song List

Little Snowflake

(To the rhythm of “ I’m a little teapot”)

I’m a little snowflake cold and round

I fall to the ground

But I don’t make a sound

When it’s cold outside I stay all day

When it gets warm I melt away


The Mittens On My Hands

(To the rhythm of “The Wheels On The Bus”)

The mittens on my hands 

Keep me warm

Keep me warm

Keep me warm

The mittens on my hands 

Keep me warm

All winter long


Hanukkah’s a happy time

(To the rhythm of “Mary Had A Little Lamb”)

Hanukkah’s a happy time,

Happy time, happy time.

Hanukkah’s a happy time,

The Festival of Lights.


Cheers to a new year

​​(To the Rhythm of Row, Row, Row your Boat)

Cheer, cheer, cheer the year,

A new one’s just begun.

Celebrate with all your friends,

Let’s go have some fun!

Clap, clap, clap your hands,

A brand new year is here.

Learning, laughing, singing, clapping,

Through another year.
