Flashback to first December (346 out of 365) #blogaday

I thought since it was almost Christmas Eve and I wrote a post on that day last year that I would bring it back as a reflection on where I have been. I still agree with this for the most part! I already talked about this with the current school I am working at, which shows that holidays are pretty similar in many different educational settings.



Tapping into traditions (345 out of 365) #blogaday

It is interesting to join in on someone else’s holiday traditions – whether its the different movies you watch or how they spread holiday cheer. Yesterday I went caroling with my boyfriend’s family (which was very fun!) and then I showed him one of my Christmas movies 🙂 It was a great day and really got me more in the mood!

Even though I have done lots of prep for Christmas, it hasn’t really hit me yet because I am working until the 23rd – I know next week it will start to get me excited and the kids will probably be all hyped up but it wont fully kick in until I bring my cat and presents to my parents house after work on Wednesday! I can’t believe Christmas is in less than a week 🙂 it is my favorite time of year and I can’t wait for my mind to figure it out ha.


Secret Santa Starts (340 out of 365) #blogaday

This week begins Secret Santa, and it is exciting to be included in this while at work! I’ve seen many posts about holiday parties on Facebook, and I am glad that I signed up for it. I plan to get my person a few little gifts each day and am wondering what my “Santa” will do for me – I didn’t get a gift today but at the same time, I didn’t give one either. Ill give more tomorrow to make up for it 😮 It is a very relaxed setting but its fun!


Broadcasting Bessie Bear (338 out of 365) #blogaday

The Traveling Teddy, Bessie, arrived on Thursday in my classroom! Things were a bit hectic so I have not introduced her yet, but the children will meet her on Monday – our unit is Things That Go so we will be discussing the various ways she could have traveled to us. I am excited for them to play with her and have her sitting with us during the small group activities and circle time:)


Frolicking with family (337 out of 365)

This weekend has started Christmas festivities for my family and boyfriend – we decorated the tree with lots of holiday music on, and then went to the zoo lights which was very relaxing and fun! Today we are seeing A Christmas Story on the big screen in one of the local theaters. I like starting a couple weeks before Christmas because it gets me in the mindset of celebrating 🙂

Sorry I missed doing a post on Saturday!
