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!
