We have a very busy week ahead of us: Monday we will continue with our tour around the world. We will visit South America and Mexico and learn about Posada processions, we will read a story about the Poinsettia and craft one ourselves. On Tuesday we will get creative and paint reindeer, read a story about Rudolph and learn about Christmas and holiday traditions in some African countries. We will celebrate Chanukkah on Wednesday, December 13th, in our classroom. We sill listen to stories, eat latkes and craft a small star as a decoration for the upcoming holidays.
