On Monday, students had a Christmas taste test to see which Christmas treat they enjoyed more. It was a choice between peppermint (candy canes) or gingerbread (gingerbread cookies). It was a pretty close contest but gingerbread won!
We used jingle bells as our instruments as we listened to different Christmas songs about bells. It was fun to try to make our jingle bells sound loud or quiet.
This week was also exciting because we had our all school field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry. We were able to explore many different exhibits but one of our favorites was the Christmas Around the World exhibit. This one has always been one of my favorite Christmas traditions and I'm so glad that I was able to share that with our preschoolers! Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post full of pictures from the trip!
