This morning after opening exercises, we settled down to looking at Christmas cards sorting to see if the kids could come up with some ideas. I gave them paper and had them tell their own stories. I chose a little "angel" in the forest surrounded by little animals and told the story of the "stranger in the woods" where the children made a snowman and put all kinds of goodkes on it for the animals to eat. They each had their story to tell from snowballs to Santa Clause. Miss Jo Dee read the "Night before Christmas" poem and that helped the thought process.
Then we found this little maze taking Micky Mouse to the door to find the Christmas ornaments. all the kids well on that!!
