It's eight in the morning and I am driving down the road to get to school. It was promising to see the sun trying to shine.
But once I go to the school...no sunshine at all. It was so very gray and cold.
This picture is out of order..this is the game the teacher plays with the children after their holiday breakfast. She wrapped 26 books up for 25 kids. By their number (which they have all year) they choose a package, unwrap it. Then the next number can take that book already unwrapped or choose a different package..It's all books on the scholastic list... lots of what is called stealing in this game. It ends up okay ..each child is encouraged to read their book and possibly return it to school to trade with a classmate.
This is their breakfast. It's casseroles (egg, sausage) donuts, juice, milk, most anything served at breakfast. Some kids eat plenty while others will pick over things. eating fruit is often encouraged.
The little class tree and some gifts for the staff. Some are for the teacher. Candles are often a gift that the teacher has to take home...as they are not allowed to burn in school. The whole class will line up and recite the poem, Twas The Night Before Christmas. All the parents will clap and the children love it.
Some apples for the teacher. LOL. I get introduced as Nana. I love hearing the class call me Nana, all at once. :):) When there's a few moments before the class is moved on to their computer classes...they can do a bit of talent show. It is amazing how much children absolutely love to sing. When one young boy was singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer...after the boy sang,with your nose so bright, the class chimed in, "like alight bulb." Oh I just loved that. Everyone was having fun and truly enjoying their talent show.:)
