‘Tis the Season

I am not sure about you but my classroom is buzzing with joyful and Christmas filled six-year-olds! December 1st, our Elf on the Shelf arrived. “Twinkle” has been with us over a week now, and she is still the first thing my first graders look for when they walk into the classroom. The kids are excited and FULL of energy (to say the least) and teachers are ready for a break to spend relaxing with family and friends.

Even though you may be ready for a break and counting the days…try to enjoy the innocence, joy, and pure excitement of your kids around this time of year. Make it special for them, for some the celebrations at school are the most they will celebrate this holiday season. Breaks usually mean relaxation and refreshing times for teachers. But keep in mind that as your children leave your classroom, some are already wanting to come back to the place where they have safety, routine, and structure.
