This afternoon, we had a small holiday party in my class. We have been celebrating the holidays all month long and learning about all sorts of December traditions. Parents and grandparents have been coming into our class and sharing ways that their families celebrate the holidays. It has been a great way to learn about each other.
Today’s party was just a winter celebration. We had hot cocoa with marshmallows and candy canes. My class gave me a beautiful gift. Each one of them had written a page of a book called, “Acts of Kindness in Honor of Mrs. Sinclair.” Over the last few weeks, each of them had done something kind for someone, illustrated it and put it together in this special book.
This is one of those gifts that I will treasure. It will have a special place in my classroom but hold an even more special place in my heart. I am so grateful.
