December Holidays

I hope this finds everyone safely back in their homes with electricity and warmth.

On Wednesday, December 17th we will have picture re-takes and our make-up for the book fair.

Room 6 has been busy learning about December holidays around the world. We have learned about Hanukkah and made latkes. They were delicious! We made crowns for St. Lucia and piƱatas for Los Posada. Today we started to weave paper mats (mkeka) for Kwanzaa. It’s been a frenzy of paper, paint and glitter in our room!
I have had a couple of requests for the cinnamon dough recipe we used for our gingerbread ornaments. Here is a link to the recipe: Cinnamon Dough Recipe
We made ours with cinnamon and applesauce. When I make these again, I will plan on adding the elmer's glue for more strength.
