We have been very busy preparing for Advent and Christmas in our classroom. These pictures will give you an idea of what we've been doing.
Epiphany classes are participating in a Christmas Around the World activity. Each class was given a country to study. Preschool 1 has Sweden.
Today is Santa Lucia Day. To celebrate Santa Lucia Day, girls in Sweden will wear a wreath with candles on their heads. Boys will dress as "star boys" and will wear a cone shaped hat with stars on it. We made star boy hats, wreath crowns, did a coloring page that showed a girl dressed as Santa Lucia and a star boy, and we made a paper garland using the colors of the Swedish flag. What a fun morning we had!
