All About December

December was such a crazy month! So much went on that it was near impossible for me to remember to blog! We had Gingerbread Night, an elf on the shelf came to visit, we sing in a winter concert, we were turned into elves,we had some snow days, Santa came to school, and we celebrated Polar Express day.

Winter Hits Hard

December was the beginning of winter and the start of some fun days in the snow. On December 8-10th we had our first 'real' snow fall and a snow day. Kids were very excited to be able to play at home in the snow. The snow also caused our Gingerbread Night to be postponed until the 12th. 


We began the month with a visitor from the North Pole..... We received a freezing cold delivery an Elf on the Shelf!!! Together we named her Frozen and throughout the month Frozen got up to all sorts of mischief.

Gingerbread Night

When we finally had Gingerbread Night on the 12th students enjoyed decorating a gingerbread man with icing, making houses with milk cartons, making chef hats, hanging out with their friends, and drinking hot chocolate. We also listened to the story of the Gingerbread Man, and Skippy Jon Jones made an appearance!

Santa and Polar Express Day

We ended the year with Polar Express Day. In the morning before the day started we received a visit in the halls from a singing Santa! Some kids were scared while other were sooooo excited. 

Once Polar Express day began we did some holiday themed activities, watched the movie Polar Express, and drank hot chocolate. Frozen left us some cupcakes so that we could have a treat.

December was a great month full of fun for all the kids. I am glad that it is over though! Make sure you check back soon of an upcoming post about February! Since we had so many snow days in January I am just going to jump straight into February happenings!
