The Polar Express

This morning the Polar Express conductor came to our pod to pick us up for our train ride!  We were all decked out in our PJ's and ready for a fun adventure!
Please take a moment to see our picture adventure...

We had special golden tickets!

We had a WONDERFUL time!  We even wrote about it in our journals when we got back!

I was recently in Birmingham at Macy's and saw the most precious postcards to Santa.  Macy's mailed us a whole class set!  Today we wrote our letters to Santa during centers.
If you would like to send/take your postcard to Macy's they will deliver it to the North Pole AND donate $1.00 for each postcard to the Make-A-Wish Foundation!!!!!

We were so excited to find our Christmas presents (from Mrs. Kimbrell) wrapped and ready to go when we returned from our Polar Express adventure!!  What could be in there!?!?!?

These special purple bags are waiting for our parents to pick up at our Holiday Breakfast in the morning (they are also filled with goodies/surprises that we've made for our parents)!

I hope you had a wonderul pajama day!

What we've been up to...

This week we have wrapped up our gingerbread man theme!  We finished by coloring a book to keep and our gingerbread man glyph!

We also made REINDEER FOOD!  The kids loved scooping the ingredients into their bags!
