A Kindy Christmas!

The Christmas present my kids made for their parents. They painted the popsicle sticks and picked out the buttons. They are so excited to give these to their parents to hang on the tree!IMG_20141218_115832

On the back it reads, “Here’s a little ornament painted just for you. Merry Christmas, Mom and Dad, and Happy New Year too!”

Christmas cards for mom and dad. They wrote, “Merry Christmas Mom and Dad! I love you!”IMG_20141218_120048

This is a candycane reindeer I made for each kid. On the back it reads, “Here’s a little reindeer to hang upon the tree. I made this just because you mean so much to me!” IMG_20141218_120250

My kindergarteners making snowflakes IMG_20141218_095106

All of the creations. The children glued the snowflakes they made on the gift bag. All of this goes in the bags and then given to mom and dad (reindeer to kids) IMG_20141218_120532

Happy little kindergarteners. LOVE this class! IMG_20141218_122739

The “18 Days of Christmas” for my 18 little kindergarteners. They love this. One child gets to open one present a day (18 days leading up to Christmas break). This is seriously crack to them. Excuse the drug reference.

Aerial perspective snowman for our art exhibition. My sample to show the kids. I was worried they wouldn’t be able to blend the edges with pastels but they were rockstars IMG_20141128_170640

All their work displayed at the art exhibition. You can’t see very well, but there’s pictures of them looking down at the snowmen from the airplane.

Yes. I taught 5-6 year olds the recorder. I can’t believe it too. I started two months ago. They played “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas” for the Christmas concert. And they were amazing! They nailed the low D and C! mmexport1418460800848

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas Swing version. After playing the recorder they broke into a big band version of the song and danced with their recorders. They loved this. They even took turns choreographing the song themselves. They were very proud of their work!

I love this little Japanese boy who made this for me! He handed it to me and after thanking him I said, “But wait, where is Santa’s beard?” He then brought it back to me with a goatee. Awesome. haha.
