Never Pass Up An Opportunity…
Last week a parent sent me an email from a teacher in Chicago asking if I was interested in joining a Christmas card exchange with 5o other teachers across the country. My first reaction was … that is going to be a lot of work….my second reaction was sounds like a fun opportunity.
I decided my little ones would make a card with a poinsettia on the front, I was inspired by this photo on Pinterest and thought is was something we could do.
I read them the story, The Legend of the Poinsetta, by Tomie dePalo.
The children painted flowers on the cards during small groups.
Then we took a class picture and wrote a note together.
I put together this wall with a poster of the US to record and discuss the Christmas Card Exchange with the children. We marked all the states we send cards too.
