We took the children in small groups into another classroom and played a Land of learning board game. It is set up kind of like candy land, but the children have to name the color, shape, beginning letter, etc to move forward.
We did "two little candy canes rhyme" and Christmas ornaments rhyme" for music time.
We are doing an experiment, we put a stencil on colored paper in the window and we will observe what will happen. None of the children guessed it will fade, they did think the window might explode though.
