We had a very busy day in Room 10. The day began with Aidan and Colleen sharing about his family’s tradition of collecting Nutcrackers. Aidan was so excited and proud to share all of his nutcrackers with his friends.

This morning for center time we all enjoyed special Hanukkah themed activities. The children made delicious latkes, played dreidel, and wrote in their writer portfolios to the prompt “During the holidays my favorite family tradition is…” Thank you to the incredible volunteers who planned, shopped, and put on this very special event for the children to experience and enjoy!

This afternoon I opened the most precious gift ever from Katie and the children. They made me a collage of my favorite Piccasso drawing, the Peace Dove, using their thumbprints. As I gazed at the most beautiful picture tears were rolling down my face, I will alway treasure this gift from Katie and your precious children!
