Happy Holidays!

Gingerbread Buildings
Kinderbuddies spent time celebrating this festive holiday season during their building study by creating a gingerbread community of their own. They designed a scenic backdrop, unique gingerbread houses, as well as gingerbread residents! Kindergarteners put the finishing touches on their very own buildings by including the dyed noodles that they learned to make at the beginning of our week.

Dreidel! Dreidel! Dreidel!
This week, Kindergarteners worked on mastering the dreidel game. Students were so excited to use all of their addition and subtraction skills to keep track of their gelt as they spun the dreidel and collected their prize. We were so impressed by the sportsmanship and math skills our little buddies displayed. Kindergarten celebrated by singing and dancing along to the dreidel song!

Our Holiday Festival
Kindergarteners were so excited to join the whole school for a holiday celebration to wrap up 2021. Students explored our backyard to learn all about holidays celebrated around the world, from Christmas, to Hanukkah, to Las Posada, to Kwanzaa, and even Winter Solstice! We loved getting the opportunity to share the excitement of this day with our eager learners. Students participated in dreidel games, wrapping paper designs, cookie decorating, and card making. Happy Holidays to all of our TCS families!
