Filled with fantasy (348 out of 365) #blogaday

I still find myself excited about Christmas to the point of being restless when I try to go to sleep -It is fun to keep some of the childish joy for the holidays 🙂 I can’t believe how fast it blurs by though because it is already the Eve before Christmas Eve and the last day of work before my break!

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.

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!

Holidays now? How? (320 out of 365) #blogaday

Wow, I cannot believe it is already the day before Thanksgiving! I wrote my very first post around this time about the true meaning of the holiday and how to teach it in schools – I only have 45 more days until January 8 when I started the #blogaday 😮 This year is going by so fast and I am thrilled that I got to annotate it through my blog. The holidays will feel a bit different this year though because I don’t really get a break due to my job (just the actual holidays and sometimes, a few days after). I’ll have to get in the spirit through the children at work and on the weekends with family and friends when the festivities get going 🙂

Christmas with children (312 out of 365) #blogaday

Today, we started some holiday crafts – the families can buy the plate that their child made. I was in the 2 year old class, and they made Christmas trees or snowmen with their feet! It turned out very cute 🙂 I’m surprised we are incorporating the Winter holidays in the curriculum. I am used to trying to avoid it so families don’t feel left out. There was one Jewish girl in the class, and she was the only one to do a snowman (if these go on the wall before families order their plates, it might make her stand out). I really like the idea, but since the children are so young, we wanted to take away the choice element to give them more continuity. feet trees post
