Almost Christmas!

Despite today's cold temperatures, our story time was full of warmth and Christmas cheer! We read four books about Christmas, including Duck & Goose Time for Christmas (with a tactile cover!), and a lift-the-flap book about Corduroy's Christmas. After our craft, we read Bear Stays Up for Christmas and Where is Christmas, Jesse Bear? Both books dealt a lot with preparations for getting ready for Christmas. And both books showed Santa!

We transformed plain white cardboard stocking shapes into unique and special ornaments for our Christmas trees. Stockings were decorated with crayons, Christmas stickers, sequins, and pompoms. Names were attached at the top, written on each child's favorite color of paper. We had lots of extra stickers, so children took them home!
