We started the day by singing the "I'm a Little Snowman" song that we did last week. I then read them a rhyming peom called: "Rudolph, Rudolph that I found on the internet that had a flannel pattern for a reindeer to go with it. With each verse I would have the kids tell me what color in the verse rhymed with the word and I would place that color nose on the reindeer. For example, one of the verses when like this: Rudolph! Rudolph! Santa gave a wink. But what will Santa think, if your nose is pink! and a pink nose went on the reindeer. Then we sang, Rudolph the red nosed reindeer.
Then I read the following books: Christmas Kitten, Home at Last by Robin Pulver (cute book!), The Mitten by Jim Aylesworth and If you Take A Mouse To The Movies by Laura Numeroff.
After reading those stories I did a flannel story of the Gingerbread Man by Eric Kimmel. I condensed it slightly due to time and that led us into our craft for the day.
Merry Christmas EveryOne!
