Christmas Around The World

For the next two weeks the Dolphins will be focusing on holiday traditions around the world.  We started off the week with the book 'Winter Lights.'  We then discussed the many ways people around the world use lights to celebrate thier holiday tradition. It is important for children to learn about different multicultural and diversities because it improves their socialization between each other positivity.  The environment of the Dolphin classroom is to model acceptance, have respect of all cultures, and have fun while learning it. 

'Light the Lighs!' Is a story about Hanukkah and Christmas.  One of our students celebrates Hanukkah, The Festival of Lights, and was excited to share with our class the Menorah.

For our class activity today, the children made their own candles.

For the sensory center, holiday scents were added to the flour and water. Cinnamon and peppermint...yum!!!

Gingerbread scented play dough and gingerbread play dough mats are a great way to improve fine motor skills while enjoying the smells of the holiday.

For the next two weeks we will be talking more about Christmas, Posadas, and Kwanzaa as well as other holidays around the world.
