Christmas in the Classroom
Second grade has been learning about Christmas around the world. So for the past couple weeks, we've been celebrating Christmas! Since Niger does not get snow and there aren't too many Christmas decorations in a primarily Muslim country, second grade has helped me get in the Christmas spirit!
Miss Farrer, the elementary principal, came in as a guest reader to tell us about the legend of the candy cane!
We made all kinds of Christmas decorations for our bulletin board!
Dr. Waldron came in to play a few Christmas carols on her harmonica! The kids hummed along and sang the words to "Silent Night."
Mrs. Eberle made an amazing pinata for our class! We learned about Christmas in Mexico...what better time to have a pinata?!
It was actually quite difficult to break open!
And of course, we ended the day with cookies and candies galore!
Miss Knox and her second graders, halfway through the year!
