We are learning about Holiday traditions around the world! On Monday we learned about a tradition from France where boys and girls put their shoes in the hallway when they go to sleep and Pere Noel (a friend of Santa's) leaves a treat for them in their shoes. We tried it during rest time and it worked! We each had a candy cane in our shoes!

For the past 2 months, we have been writing and illustrating our own version of Snow White! The books were just "published" with kids winning a Newbury Honor for great words or Caldecott Honor for great pictures. We even had a first place winner in each category! On Monday we had an author's day where we got to read all of the books and celebrate with hot chocolate and cookies after. The kids also got to autograph their books!

After we made the butter, we got to eat it on crackers and it was super yummy. We also learned about the buttermilk that you can drink or make pancakes or other treats with!
We made extra butter and delivered it to the wonderful people who work in our front office! They may have gotten whipped cream too instead of butter but they were sure thankful! We also gave them spiced tea that we made in cooking club!

We have been learning about Native Americans in kindergarten this week. In addition to learning about the early Native Americans' houses, food, clothing, and hobbies, we also learned about how they got their names. Today the kids got to create their own Native American name (you'll have to ask them about it!) and headbands!
