Christmas Festivities are upon us. We have been busy, busy with new and old traditions, our caroling party, candy train making, reading A Christmas Carol as a family, visiting the Polar Express, watching the Christmas Specials ont tv, devouring kiddie Christmas books and plenty more simple joys to come.
School has been fun involving dressing up, games, crafts and treats. What a delightful time of the year December is. We have learned about the many Christmas traditions around the world, such as Italy, Sweden, England and France. This week we learn about Christmas in Mexico and Hanukuah. I've introduced small Spanish lessons into our curriculum now about twice a week. I figure we can slowly transition into more days and phrases as time passes. Small and simple is the way to go-after all she is only five-I seriously forget this all too often.
